A note: ((JP is one of the absolutely most inspiring and artistic independent acts
today. In an age of readily available free downloads and huge music corporations
[an]this artist remains true by producing all his many albums independently. So please,
not "steal" this music. Use this tab solely for the advancement of yourself
a musician and to promote JP's music.))

[G#m]Billy's been d[E]riving all night, he's got a dr[B]eam
Wants to li[B/Bb]ve up on the big screen
[G#m]Just like Ji[E]mmy Dean, he's got his jack[B]et on, and his [B/Bb]hair combed just right
[G#m]There's a hun[E]dred just like him in[B] audition l[B/Bb]ines tonight
[B]I wish the walls would come down
I wish the wa[E]lls would come down[B/Bb]
I wish the w[B]alls would come [G#m]down on what's l[E]eft of this[B/Bb] faketown
Rosemary's driving downtown, something that she heard from some talent scout
She's been working all day just to pay for those pictures to be done up in the right way
And it was such a shame when he said that she was just another pretty face
Said no one ever gets no where without shaking it here or there
Honey life ain't fair
I wish the walls would come down
I wish the walls would come down
I wish the walls would come down on what's left of this faketown
This faketown
[G#m]Well you can fix your face, you can [B]fix your hair
You can [E]fix you body, with this[B/Bb] needle here
[G#m]They want to walk around like a [B]pack of wolves
[E]And they tell you you ain't g[B/Bb]ood enough
And it ain't your fault, they say it ain't your time
You just weren't cut out for the big time
And don't you try to be yourself
'Cause things like that, they never sell
[G#m]I wish the walls would come down[E] [B] [B/Bb]
I wish the walls would come down on what's left of this faketown
This faketown
