Hanging On The Telephone by Blondie
Standard tuning

[Verse 1]
N.C.                              Eb 
I'm in the phone booth, it's the one across the hall
Gm                             Eb 
If you don't answer, I'll just ring it off the wall
Gm                     Eb               
I know he's there, but I just got to call

[Refrain]
               Eb             Cm   Gm 
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone
               Eb             Cm   Gm 
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

[Verse 2]
Gm                            Eb
I heard your mother now she's going out the door
Gm                    Eb
Did she go to work or just go to the store?
Gm                            Eb
All those things she said, I told you to ignore

[Bridge 1]
                 Cm            Gm      
Oh, why can't we talk again
                 Cm            Gm      
Oh, why can't we talk again
                 Cm 
Oh, why can't we talk again

[Refrain]
               Cm             Bb   Gm 
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone
               Cm             Bb   Gm 
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

[Verse 3]
N.C.                              Eb 
It's good to hear your voice, you know it's been so long
Gm                            Eb 
If I don't get your call then everything goes wrong
Gm                           Eb 
I want to tell you something you've known all along
               Eb             Cm   Gm 
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

[Thought I'd better put the solo in since it absolutely rocks.]

[Verse 4]
N.C.                   Eb 
I had to interrupt and stop this conversation
Gm                               Eb 
Your voice across the line gives me a strange sensation
Gm                          Eb 
I'd like to talk when I can show you my affection

[Bridge 2]
               Cm            Gm      
Oh, I can't control myself
               Cm            Gm      
Oh, I can't control myself
               Cm               
Oh, I can't control myself

[Refrain]
               Cm             Bb   Gm 
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone
               Cm             Bb   Gm 
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

[Outro]
     Eb 
Hang up and run to me
Gm         Eb 
Woah, hang up and run to me
Gm         Eb 
Woah, hang up and run to me
Gm         Eb 
Woah, hang up and run to me
Gm            Eb 
Woah oh oh oh oh run to me

Then the last part of the solo repeats once more -

A|-6-5-1-------|
E|---------1-3-|

...and thats it.
