Tony Lucca - True Story chords

      
This can be played strummed but sounds nice with just about any finger-picking pattern. 
These are the chords in standard tuning, I believe he plays with a capo on the second 
fret. After each verse he stops his finger-picking and plays a tiny pattern (I'll call it "riff")-

G B C GRolled on out of Motown back in '91
G Em D7 DLeft them bitter winters for the Florida summer sun
G G7Breakin' hearts in theme parks
C Cm G D7
G (riff)Smiled for anyone who held a camera to my face and said "Say cheese!"
G B C GWound up on the telly With a twinkle in my eye
G Em D7 DTwinkle disappeared the night I started gettin' high
G G7And everything seemed so absurd
C Cm GUntil the night I finally heard the sound of Coltrane
D7 G (riff)It brought me to my knees
CHORUS
D CThere's a long drive straight through the night
G D7Starin' out the window Lookin' for the first signs of daylight
G CJust hold on tight With all of your might
G D7 G (riff)See it takes the time it takes to get it right
G B C GSo I peddled across the country Wound up here in Hollywood
G Em D7 DLeft my high school sweetheart when I realized I could
G G7She became a movie star
C Cm G
D7 G (riff)I've took to sleepin' in my car Still singin' songs about her to this day
G B C GDrove myself to New York City Chasin' love again
G Em D7 DShe moved me to tears and then I wound up movin' in
G G7That Apple got the best of me
C Cm G
D7 G (riff)So I packed up the rest of me And I grabbed a cab, said "Straight to JFK!"
CHORUS

G D7Starin' out the window Lookin' for the first signs of daylight
G CJust hold on tight With all of your might
G D7 G (riff)See it takes the time it takes to get it right
G B C GNow I'm back in Hollywood This guitar in my hand
G Em D7 DThese days I'm only using words that I can understand
G G7Singin' songs, I'll carry on
C Cm G D7
G (riff)Keep at it until I'm dead and gone Then maybe my gravestone will say
