   G                  C      - G                   D

1.    He plays guitar        at a hotel bar

G                 C                  Em            D

    for out-of-towners and business men.

G                        C           G                    D

    He struts and sings to his drum machine,

                 G                   C              D         G

    but he won't make it big at the Holiday Inn.

 

D                                       C            G

    But she thinks that he looks like Elvis,

                    C          G                             D

    when he runs his fingers through that jet black hair.

D                                   C              G

    And sometimes she forgets an order,

                         C             G                          D

    'cause she's so struck by him, and she stops and stares.

 

G                    D      C                       D

    They gotta love bigger than the Beatles,

G                  D             Em        D

    wild and free like a Rolling Stone.

2.    She pours 'em drinks,       loads up the sink,

G                           C        Em       D

    and dreams of bein' a movie star.

G                     C    - G                              D

    Her mama said,       she'd knock 'em dead,

G                   C                D           G

    but Hollywood hasn't called so far.

 

D                                         C            G

    But he thinks she's as pretty as a picture

                      C                G                  D

    when she wipes down tables in her apron strings.

D                                      C          G

    And sometimes he forgets a chorus,

                            C                   G                 D

    'cause she's shinin' like a beauty on the silver screen.

             G                        D

    but they ain't missin' much.

                               Em                        C

C                          Am - D     - Am - D7

    all you need is lo......ve.
