[Eb] [A] [Bb]  
(Verse 1)
[C]Welcome to the big time, you're bound to be a star
[Bb]And even if you don't go all the way, [F]you know that you'll go far
[C]This place is for rats, it can turn you upside down
[Bb]There's no one you can count on in this [F]sleazy little town, oh no
[G]Lots of [A]promises [F]in the dark
[G]Don't you [A]open your [Bb]heart
(repeat opening riff -- x2)
'Cuz it don't mean nothing, those words that they say
No it don't mean nothing, those games that people play
It don't mean nothing, no victim, no crime
No it don't mean nothing 'til you sign it on the dotted line
Same as verse, then fill -- F G G#
(Verse 2)
[C]The director smiles as you walk in the door
[Bb]He says "I love your work, babe,[F] but you're just not what we're looking for"
[C]And it's never what but who it is you know
[Bb]So easy to get stuck in all th[F]at California snow, oh no
[G]Take a g[A]ood look a[F]round and you'll find
[G]People tryin' to [A]mess with your [Bb]mind
2nd Chorus -- repeat first chorus, then F G A
[A]Hollywood can be so lonely
make you the wi[F]nner of a losing fight[F] [G] [A]
[A]The party is never over
[F]The stars are always shinin'
Doesn't [G]matter if [A]it's day or night
Guitar solo -- rhythm plays opening/chorus riff x 2
(Verse 3)
[C]The producer says "let me change a line or two"
[Bb]And a little bit of something can look [F]awfully good to you
[C]And you want to scream, but you gotta keep it all inside
[F]When you're trying to make a living, there ain't [F]no such thing as pride, oh no
[G]Lots of [A]promises [F]in the dark
[G]But don't you [A]open your [Bb]heart
(Repeat Chorus)
Outro -- opening/chorus riff
And done!
