The Great Pretender   

Tom: G

Tuning:E


Intro:  G  C  G  C

 

     G                  C  D        G           G7

Oh yes, I'm the Great           Pretender,

C                         G       G7

Pretending I'm doing well.

     C          D       G               C   C #

My need is such, I pretend too much,

        G        C  D           G

I'm lonely but no one can tell

        G           C   D   G   G7

Oh yes, I'm the great pretender,

  C                             G       G7

Adrift in a world  of my own

C               D    G            C   C #

I play the game, but to my real shame

        G               C       D    G

You've left me to dream all alone.

        C                               G

Too real is this feeling of make believe,

        C                               G               D   

Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

 

    G                 C  C  G   G7

Oh yes, I'm the great pretender

    C                               G    G7

Just lauging and gay like a clown

    C      D            G            C      C #

I seem to be, what I'm not, you see,

        G            D             Bmin   C   C #

I'm wearing my heart like a crown,

        G               C  D      G

Pretending that you're still around

 

        C                               G               D    D #

Too real when I fell what my heart can't conceal

(everything moves up 1/2 step)

 

     G  #             C #       C #     G #     G#7

Oh yes, I'm the great   pretender

    C#                              G#   G#7

Just lauging and gay like a clown

    C#   D#             G#           C #     C #

I seem to be, what I'm not, you see,

        G#           D  #          B#min   C#   D

I'm wearing my heart like a crown,

        G#              C#  

Pretending that you're...

        G#              C#                 G#

Pretending that your're....         still around...

Two errors in the chords: 1. There is no C#-chord in the song. 2. Bmin should be B otherwise it´s fine. Good song and unbelivebly good performance by Mecury (although he did not write the song)

A nice way to play the "wearing my heart like a crown"-bit is (before the key change):
C / D / B/D# / C/E / C#dim / G/D / D7sus4 / D7 / G
