MONEY BECOMES KING Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Intro: Dm G Dm G Dm G F C G Dm G If you reach back in your memory Dm G a little bell might ring Dm G 'bout a time that once existed Dm G when money wasn't king Am Em if you streech your imagination Am Em i'll tell you all a tale Dm Am about a time when everything F C G wasn't up for sale Dm G there was this cat named johnny Dm G who loved to play and sing F C G when money wasn't king Dm G we'd all get so excited when Dm G john would do a show Dm G we'd raise the cash between us Dm G and down the road we'd go Am Em to hear him play that music Am Em it spoke right to my soul Dm Am every verse a diamond F C G every chorus gold Dm G the sound was my salvation it was only everything before money became king A E well i ain't sure how it happend A E and i don't know exactly when A E but everything got bigger A E and the rules began to bend A G and the tv taught the people A G how to get their hair to shine A G and how sweet life can be A G if you keep a tight behind F G and they raised the cost of living F G and how could we have known F G they'd double the price of tickets F G to go see johnny's show F C G Dm G so we hocked all our possesions Dm G and we sold a little dope F C G and went off to rock and roll Dm G we arrived there early Dm G in time to see rehearsal Dm G and john came out and lip-synched Dm G his new lite beer commercial Am Em and as the crowd arrived Am Em as far as i could see Dm AM the faces were all different F C G there was no one there like me Dm G they sat in golden circles Dm G and waiters sevred them wine Dm G and talked through all the music Dm G and to john paid little mind Am Em and way up in the nosebleeds Am Em we watched him on the screen Dm Am they'd hung between the billboards F C G so cheaper seats could see A E johnny rocked that golden circle A E and all those vip's A E and that music thast had saved us A E became a tired routine A G and i saw his face in close-up A G trying to give it all he had A G and sometimes his eyes betrayed him A G you could see that he was sad F G and i tried to rock on with him F G but i slowly became bored F could that man on stage G with everything F G somehow need some more? F C G Dm G there was no use in pretending Dm G no magic left to hear Dm G all the music gave me Dm G was a craving for lite beer Dm G as i walked out of the arena Dm G my ears began to ring F C G and money became king Dm G Dm G Dm G (big end)F C G "The words are right--I'm just not sure on the music."
