Blondie - Rapture, from Autoamerican (1980)

Written by Debbie Harry and Chris Stein.

Em sounds best for this played as a barred Am on the 7th fret. That way, you can add the D for the
Em7 on the 10th fret on the E string.  These are the chords for the rhythm guitar.


Intro: Em X8    F    A   C    G     Em


Em
Toe to toe
Dancing very close
Barely breathing
Almost comatose
Wall to wall
People hypnotised
F               A    C   Em
And they're stepping lightly
F    A    C     G  Em
Hang each night in Rapture

Em    Em7

Em             Em7 (repeat each line) 
Back to back
Sacroiliac
Spineless movement
And a wild attack
Face to face
Sadly solitude
F            A  C    Em
And it's finger popping
F           A    C   G       Em
Twenty-four hour shopping in Rapture




SAX SOLO: Em

RAP PART:

Em
Fab Five Freddie told me everybody's fly
DJ's spinning I said my, my 
Flash is fast, Flash is cool
Francois sais pas, Flashe no deux
And you don't stop, sure shot
Go out to the parking lot
And you get in your car and you drive real far

{From here you play one bar of Em then one bar of Em7)

Em                 Em7                     Em        
And you drive all night and then you see a light
And it comes right down and lands on the ground
        Em7              Em
And out comes a man from Mars
And you try to run but he's got a gun
        Em7                               Em
And he shoots you dead and he eats your head
And then you're in the man from Mars
        Em7                      Em
You go out at night, eatin' cars
You eat Cadillacs, Lincolns too
Em7               Em
Mercuries and Subarus
                                Em7        
And you don't stop, you keep on eatin' cars
           Em
Then, when there's no more cars
                            Em7                      Em
You go out at night and eat up bars where the people meet
Face to face, dance cheek to cheek
Em7
One to one, man to man
Em
Dance toe to toe
                                Em7
Don't move too slow, 'cause the man from Mars
                Em
Is through with cars, he's eatin' bars
                    Em7                         Em
Yeah, wall to wall, door to door, hall to hall
He's gonna eat 'em all
            Em7
Rapture, be pure
             Em
Take a tour, through the sewer
                         Em7
Don't strain your brain, paint a train
              Em
You'll be singin' in the rain
                      Em7
I said don't stop, do punk rock

SAX SOLO #2: Em       Em7   X16

Em
Well now you see what you wanna be
                Em7        Em
Just have your party on TV
                                                    Em7      Em
'Cause the man from Mars won't eat up bars when the TV's on

Em
And now he's gone back up to space
Where he won't have a hassle with the human race
And you hip-hop, and you don't stop
Just blast off, sure shot
'Cause the man from Mars stopped eatin' cars and eatin' bars
And now he only eats guitars, get up!


GUITAR SOLO:  Em X10  A   C   D   E X3     A   C   D   G   Em


Em to fade-out
