...HEART OF GLASS... by Blondie
--------------------...........

*from 'Parallel Lines' (1979)*


Intro:

E

Verse 1:

E                               C#7
 Once I had a love and it was a gas,
C#m7                               E
 Soon turned out; I had a heart of glass.
                                    C#7
Seemed like the real thing, only to find;
C#m7                           E
 Much mistrust; love's gone be-hind.

Verse 2:

E                                C#7
 Once I had a love and it was di-vine,
C#m7                             E
 Soon found out; I was losing my mind.
                                        C#7
Seemed like the real thing but I was so blind,
C#m7                           E
 Much mistrust; love's gone be-hind.

Chorus 1:

A                                             E
 In between, what I find is pleasing, and I'm feeling fine.
                                 A
Love is so confusing; there's no peace of mind.
If I fear I'm losing you;
     F#7               B7               B7sus4
It's just no good: you teasing like you do.

Interlude:

E

Verse 3:

E                               C#7
 Once I had a love and it was a gas,
C#m7                               E
 Soon turned out; I had a heart of glass.
                                    C#7
Seemed like the real thing, only to find;
C#m7                           E
 Much mistrust; love's gone be-hind.

Chorus 2:

A                                      E
 Lost inside, adorable illusion, and I cannot hide.
                                        A
I'm them one you're using; please don't push me aside,
                            E
We coulda made it cruising, yeah.

Solo:

A  E, A  E (x2)

F#7             B7                 B7sus4
 Riding high on love's true bluish light.

Break:

E
 Ooh ooh, woah oh, ooh ooh, woah oh.
Ooh ooh, woah oh, ooh ooh, woah oh.

Verse 4:

E                               C#7
 Once I had a love and it was a gas,
C#m7                                 E
 Soon turned out to be a pain in the ass.
                                    C#7
Seemed like the real thing, only to find;
C#m7                           E
 Much mistrust; love's gone be-hind.

Coda:

E
 Ooh ooh, woah oh, ooh ooh, woah oh.
Ooh ooh, woah oh, ooh ooh, woah oh.

(Repeat to Fade)

whats the point in the fourth fret capo if theyre just simple chords?? for those of you who can actually play guitar without having to resort to open chords all the live long day here is what each chord represented in this chart really is
cast in order of appearance

C = E
Am = C#m
F = A
D = F#
G = B

hope that was more helpful

What makes you think using a CAPO/playing Open chords is easier?!?!

I've been playing and teaching guitar for over 10 years, and in my experience...I got bored of playing Bar Chords all the time...Sure you can play Bar Chords for every song, but it's just the same 2 shapes over and over again...surely that's more boring?!

And yes...I give all players the option to play it in the original key, by stating what the Original Key is at the start of the tab...Capo's aren't just about making things easier to play?!...they are for transposing purposes...Lot's of songs follow certain patterns...which are easier to read/understand in a more recognisable key...in this case C...C, Am, F (and usually G) is a common popular chord progression...which is something that people could totally overlook by playing it as E, C#m etc...

Each to their own...but certainly don't be-little open chords, or suggest I have to resort to playing them, likewise...this version is for people who don't have to resort to the same 2 Bar Chord shapes all the time, like most other guitarists in rock history...

shut up seanm42 - this tab is great, I like the fact you've only posted what.... 1 tab? compared to this guys 320 - he is clearly a better player than you, and I think thats what your problem is at the end of the day. So grow up and learn some decent guitar! Look at the rest of cLuMsT's tabs, you toss3r!
