Eb A Bb (Verse 1)
CWelcome to the big time, you're bound to be a star
Bb FAnd even if you don't go all the way, you know that you'll go far
CThis place is for rats, it can turn you upside down
Bb FThere's no one you can count on in this sleazy little town, oh no
G A FLots of promises in the dark
G A BbDon't you open your heart
CHORUS (repeat opening riff -- x2) 'Cuz it don't mean nothing, those words that they say No it don't mean nothing, those games that people play It don't mean nothing, no victim, no crime No it don't mean nothing 'til you sign it on the dotted line (Pre-Verse) Same as verse, then fill -- F G G# (Verse 2)
CThe director smiles as you walk in the door
Bb FHe says "I love your work, babe, but you're just not what we're looking for"
CAnd it's never what but who it is you know
Bb FSo easy to get stuck in all that California snow, oh no
G A FTake a good look around and you'll find
G A BbPeople tryin' to mess with your mind
2nd Chorus -- repeat first chorus, then F G A (Refrain)
AHollywood can be so lonely
F F G Amake you the winner of a losing fight
AThe party is never over
FThe stars are always shinin'
G ADoesn't matter if it's day or night
Guitar solo -- rhythm plays opening/chorus riff x 2 (Verse 3)
CThe producer says "let me change a line or two"
Bb FAnd a little bit of something can look awfully good to you
CAnd you want to scream, but you gotta keep it all inside
F FWhen you're trying to make a living, there ain't no such thing as pride, oh no
G A FLots of promises in the dark
G A BbBut don't you open your heart
(Repeat Chorus) Outro -- opening/chorus riff And done!
