(Original Key: Eb)
Intro:
C Am, F G (x2)
Verse 1:
[C] See you've got the new bi-[Am]ography,
[F] Where did they get the [G]info from?
[C] Same as before; some [Am]so-called friends,
[F] Who claim to have [G]known me then.
Verse 2:
[C] How come they've got such good [Am]memories,
When [F]I can't even re-[G]member last week?
[C] Got to question where they're [Am]coming from,
[F] What knowledge of me is it that [G]they speak?
Bridge 1:
So [C]far away, [Am]way back when,
The [F]people that claim to have [G]known me then.
Chorus 1:
[C] They're not on my wavelength,
And it's [Am]such a shame,
[F] That they have to play the [G]name game.
The [C]fame game, oh the [Am]name game.
Oh the [Am]name game,
Lord it's a [F]cryin' shame,
Lord tell me [G]what's to blame?
Verse 3:
[C] Reinvented all the [Am]stories they know,
[F] Give them all a [G]different slant.
[C] What is it that they're really [Am]looking for?
[F] Just a hobby on the [G]internet.
Bridge 2:
So [C]far away, [Am]way back when,
The [F]people that claim to have [G]known me then.
Chorus 2:
[C] They're not on my wavelength,
And it's [Am]such a shame,
[F] That they have to play the [G]name game.
The [C]fame game, oh the [Am]name game.
Oh the [Am]name game,
Lord it's a [F]cryin' shame,
Lord tell me [G]what's to blame?
Sax Solo:
C Am, F G (x2)
Break:
[Am] If they didn't really know me way back,
How can they [F]know me now in [G]any respect?
[Am] It's a pity they don't feel the pain,
That they [F]should pay the price,
To [G]play, to play...
Chorus 3:
The [C]fame game, oh the [Am]name game.
Oh the [Am]name game,
Lord it's a [F]cryin' shame,
Lord tell me [G]what's to blame?
Chorus 4:
[C] They're not on my wavelength,
And it's [Am]such a shame,
[F] That they have to,
[G] Play, have to play...
The [C]fame game, oh the [Am]name game.
Oh the [Am]name game,
Lord it's a [F]cryin' shame,
Lord tell me [G]who's to blame?
They keep on playin'...
The [C]fame game, oh the [Am]name game.
Oh the [Am]name game,
Lord it's a [F]cryin' shame,
Lord tell me [G]who's to blame?
They keep on playin'...
The [C]fame game, oh the [Am]name game.
Oh the [Am]name game,
Lord it's a [F]cryin' shame,
Lord tell me [G]who's to blame?
They keep on playin'...
The [C]fame game, oh the [Am]name game.
Oh the [Am]name game,
Lord it's a [F]cryin' shame,
Lord tell me [G]who's to blame?
Keep on, keep on playin'...
