Video Killed The Radio Star  Buggles


[C]    [Csus4]     [Gsus4]    [G] 
[C]I heard you on[Csus4] the wireless back[Gsus4]in fifty two[G]
Lying a-wake in bed then tuning in on you
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through
Oh - ah - oh.

Verse 2:

They took the credit for your second symphony
Rewritten by machine and new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see

(Oh-a-oh) I met your children
(Oh-a-oh) What did you tell them ?


[C]Video killed the [F]radio star
Video killed the radio star

[C]Pictures [G]came and [F]broke your heart

Verse 3:

And now we meet in an abandoned studio
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago
And you remember the jingles used to go

(Oh-a-oh) You were the first one
(Oh-a-oh) You were the last one


[C]In my    [G]mind and   [F]in my car, we
can't re-wind we've gone to far



[C]In my    [G]mind and   [F]in my car, we
can't re-wind we've gone to far
Pictures came and broke your heart
Put the blame on VTR

You are the radio star

(chorus to fade)

The A-Chord in the refrain is wrong for me.
I prefer a "G". In Original, the whole song is one semi down, in Db.
