New Biography

Van Morrison

-------------------................


 CAm
  See you've got the new bi-ography,
 FG
  Where did they get the info from?
 CAm
  Same as before; some so-called friends,
 FG
  Who claim to have known me then.

Verse 2:

 CAm
  How come they've got such good memories,
 FG
When I can't even re-member last week?
 CAm
  Got to question where they're coming from,
 FG
  What knowledge of me is it that they speak?

Bridge 1:

 CAm
So far away, way back when,
 FG
The people that claim to have known me then.

Chorus 1:

 C
  They're not on my wavelength,
 Am
And it's such a shame,
 FG
  That they have to play the name game.

 CAm
The fame game, oh the name game.
 Am
Oh the name game,
 F
Lord it's a cryin' shame,
 G
Lord tell me what's to blame?

Verse 3:

 CAm
  Reinvented all the stories they know,
 FG
  Give them all a different slant.
 CAm
  What is it that they're really looking for?
 FG
  Just a hobby on the internet.

Bridge 2:

 CAm
So far away, way back when,
 FG
The people that claim to have known me then.

Chorus 2:

 C
  They're not on my wavelength,
 Am
And it's such a shame,
 FG
  That they have to play the name game.

 CAm
The fame game, oh the name game.
 Am
Oh the name game,
 F
Lord it's a cryin' shame,
 G
Lord tell me what's to blame?

Sax Solo:

C Am, F G (x2)

Break:

 Am
  If they didn't really know me way back,
 FG
How can they know me now in any respect?

 Am
  It's a pity they don't feel the pain,
 F
That they should pay the price,
 G
To play, to play...

Chorus 3:

 CAm
The fame game, oh the name game.
 Am
Oh the name game,
 F
Lord it's a cryin' shame,
 G
Lord tell me what's to blame?

Chorus 4:

 C
  They're not on my wavelength,
 Am
And it's such a shame,
 F
  That they have to,
 G
  Play, have to play...

 CAm
The fame game, oh the name game.
 Am
Oh the name game,
 F
Lord it's a cryin' shame,
 G
Lord tell me who's to blame?
They keep on playin'...

 CAm
The fame game, oh the name game.
 Am
Oh the name game,
 F
Lord it's a cryin' shame,
 G
Lord tell me who's to blame?
They keep on playin'...

 CAm
The fame game, oh the name game.
 Am
Oh the name game,
 F
Lord it's a cryin' shame,
 G
Lord tell me who's to blame?
They keep on playin'...

 CAm
The fame game, oh the name game.
 Am
Oh the name game,
 F
Lord it's a cryin' shame,
 G
Lord tell me who's to blame?
Keep on, keep on playin'...
