_____VERSE__________________________

G                       D
There once was this band
Am                              C
I’m telling you those boys could rock
G                       D         Am             
Slim played his guitar like an astronaut

G                       D             
But behind the backstage door
A                              C
Somebody turned green for sure
G                       D         Am           Am
Outshined by the star people loved and adored

_____CHORUS_________________________

C 
They started in the garage practicing
D
They thought they’d always be the best of friends
Cm
A little too much of the light on Slim

And he’s lonely at the top

_____VERSE__________________________

The band hit the stage
But the crowd only called for Slim
He was the man of the times
He meant everything
When the crowd called for more
The band did a worldwide tour
And he was running the show
Just like an ego-whore


_____CHORUS_________________________ 


They started in the garage practicing
They thought they’d always be the best of friends
A little too much of the light on Slim
A little too much light for any man
Then he started trying to run the show
The band left, they couldn’t take no more
Now that fool's singing solo

<intro riff>

He’s feeling so low

_____INTERLUDE______________________(01:33)

C
He thought he had everything
D
But it was all just a dream
Bm                                  Em
Cause when you’re alone no one sings harmony

C
And then the bottom just dropped
D
When the music just stopped
Em
This may come as a shock

<riff 2>
But it’s lonely at the top

_____VERSE__________________________

In the end of an age and a star turned stardust
Lined with ashes of dreams and bloody music sheets
And the fame killed our friend
We tried again but the chance was slim
Victim of the music industries' beast within

_____CHORUS_________________________

They started in the garage practicing
They thought they’d always be the best of friends
A little too much of the light on Slim
Too much light for any man
Then he started trying to run the show
We had to leave, we couldn’t take no more
                              
Now that fool is just singing solo, 

<riff 2>
