Wasted  Def Leppard

Date: Tue, 22 Feb 94 13:11:23 GMT
Here's a little something I worked out the other day - it's the intro to
'Wasted' from Def Leppard's 'On Through the Night'.Actually what I'm really
after is 'I Wanna Be Your Hero' (solo or intro) from Retroactive.In exchange
I've got the music to all the songs off Adrenalize,I just feel a bit guilty
about ripping off such an excellent band so I won't post them unless I'm asked
(really nicely).Cheers!
Wasted by Def Leppard

I saw the Wasted opening riff in the archive and couldn't resist adding
the rest of the song, as I play it. I don't know how to play the solo,
so if someone else can add it, great. The lyrics are also printed here
with notations on which riff is played to which line(s). Some of the
lines overlap riffs, but that's hard to notate. Any
additions/corrections would be welcome.

(Riff 'A' 4 times)
(Riff 'A')
Well I've been lying awake all night just thinking of you
(Riff 'A')
But a bottle of whiskey lies heavy obstructing my view
(Riff 'A')
I've got a bottle of pills to give my my thrills
(Riff 'A')
And I know I'm leading a life that kills
(Riff 'B')
CHORUS: "Wasted" - I've wasted my time
(Riff 'B')
"Wasted" - I'm shooting a line
(Riff 'B')
"Wasted" - I'm stuck in a hole
(Riff 'B')
"Wasted" - I'm losing control
(Riff 'A' 2 times)
(Riff 'A')
I've been meaning to call, I've been wanting to phone
(Riff 'A')
I don't like the thought of leaving you here alone
(Riff 'A')
I've seen things down here that are fit for a queen
(Riff 'A')
I"ve seen things down here that should never be seen
(Riff 'B')
CHORUS: "Wasted" - I've wasted my money
(Riff 'B')
"Wasted" - I've wasted you honey
(Riff 'B')
"Wasted" - I'm out of my brain
(Riff 'B')
"Wasted" - I'm going insane
(Riff 'C')
I'm runing in thin air
There's nothingness everywhere
I've gotta get out (won't you help me)
I've gotta get out (won't you help me)
I've gotta get out won't you help me get out
SOLO over Riff 'A' 4 times
Riff 'B' 4 times
(Riff 'A' 2 times)
(Riff 'A')
I thought I saw you just the other day
(Riff 'A')
But it couldn't be you cause you had nothing to say
(Riff 'A')
"He's going away," they told all my friends
(Riff 'A')
Now I'm stuck in here 'till the misery ends
(Riff 'B')
CHORUS: "Wasted" - I've wasted my time
(Riff 'B')
"Wasted" - I'm shooting a line
(Riff 'B')
"Wasted" - I'm out of my head
(Riff 'D')
"Wasted" - I wish I was dead
