Celluloid Heros:The Kinks.
Album - Everybody's In Show-Biz - 1972.

#1.
D             A           G             D
Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star,
    F#m            Bm                 G              A
And everybody's in movies, it doesn't matter who you are.
          Bm             F#m
There are stars in every city,
         G                  A
in every house and on every street,
           C                   G
and if you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
                A             D
their names are written in concrete.

#2.
D                    A                 G        D
Don't tread on Greta Garbo as you walk down the Boulevard,
    F#m               Bm                     G              A
She looks so weak and fragile that's why she tried to be so hard.
         Bm                F#m               G            A
But they turned her into a princess and they sat her on a throne,
        C                  G                    A            D
but she turned her back on stardom, because she wanted to be alone.

CHORUS:
        C                        G                   D
You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard.
C                        G                            D
Some that you recognise, some that you've hardly even heard of.
C                     G                           D
People who worked and suffered, and struggled for fame,
C                      G                    D
some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.

#3.
D            A           G         D
Rudolph Valentino, looks very much alive,
       F#m              Bm              G              A
And he looks up ladies' dresses as they sadly pass him by.
      Bm               F#m                G                  A
Avoid stepping on Bela Lugosi, cause he's liable to turn and bite.
          C              G              A                      D
But stand close by Bette Davis, because hers was such a lonely life.

CHORUS:
        C                        G                   D
You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard.
C                        G                            D
Some that you recognise, some that you've hardly even heard of.
C                     G                           D
People who worked and suffered, and struggled for fame,
C                      G                    D
some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.

#4.
D                       A               G                        D
If you covered him with garbage, George Sanders would still have style.
           F#m               Bm               G                    A
And if you stomped on Mickey Rooney, he would still turn round and smile.
                 Bm               F#m            G              A
But please don't tread on dearest Marilyn, cause she's not very tough.
    D                        G
She should have been made of iron or steel,
            A                      D
but she was only made of flesh and blood.

#5.
D             A           G             D
Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star,
    F#m            Bm                   G              A
And everybody's in show biz, it doesn't matter who you are.
    Bm            F#m            G              A
And those who are successful, be always on your guard.
        D                       G
Success walks hand in hand with failure,
      A              D
along Hollywood Boulevard.

CHORUS:
        C                        G                   D
You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard.
C                        G                            D
Some that you recognise, some that you've hardly even heard of.
C                     G                           D
People who worked and suffered, and struggled for fame,
C                      G                    D
some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.

#6.
  C                  G                  D
I wish my life was a non-stop Hollywood movie show,
  C                G                      D
a fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes.
C                        G              D
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain,
    C                G            D
and celluloid heroes never really die.

CHORUS:
        C                        G                   D
You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard.
C                        G                            D
Some that you recognise, some that you've hardly even heard of.
C                     G                           D
People who worked and suffered, and struggled for fame,
C                      G                    D
some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.

#7.
    C                       G                   D
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
    C                       G                   D
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
    C                G              D
Oh, celluloid heroes never feel any pain,
    C                G            D
Oh, celluloid heroes never really die.

#8.
  C                  G                  D
I wish my life was a non-stop Hollywood movie show,
  C                G                      D
a fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes.
C                        G              D
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain,
    C                G            D
and celluloid heroes never really die.

There's one chord I would change in Verse 4 and 5. It doesn't sound right when I sing "She should have been made of iron or steel" with the D to G. But if you switch it to C & G, it does. Thus:

D A G D
If you covered him with garbage, George Sanders would still have style.
F#m Bm G A
And if you stomped on Mickey Rooney, he would still turn round and smile.
Bm F#m G A
But please don't tread on dearest Marilyn, cause she's not very tough.
C* G
She should have been made of iron or steel,
A D
but she was only made of flesh and blood.

D A G D
Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star,
F#m Bm G A
And everybody's in show biz, it doesn't matter who you are.
Bm F#m G A
And those who are successful, be always on your guard.
C* G
Success walks hand in hand with failure,
A D
along Hollywood Boulevard.

Otherwise, fantastic tab! Thanks for posting!
