(Verse)
G        Cadd9              G   Cadd9
   Never thought that I was weak
D                C
Always thought I could get hurt pretty bad
         C                G    Cadd9  G  Cadd9
Standing up on my own two feet 
G            Cadd9             G    Cadd9
  I always believed that I was free
       D                   C
That I had some sense of integrity
           D              C                    G  Cadd9  G  Cadd9
That would rise above whatever tried to change  me

(Chorus)
               Em   C         G  
But honey, now        I won't wait
Em                 C                  G    
  For something to bring me round and smile
Em                C            G    
  Cause that only sticks for a while
              D
Then I'm back again
C                     G      Cadd9  G  Cadd9
  Oh, I'm a master pretender

(Interlude)
G  Cadd9  G  Cadd9
G  Cadd9  G  Cadd9

(Verse)
G          Cadd9           G     Cadd9
  I always knew that I was young
           D                     C                    C               G  Cadd9  G  Cadd9
But with a head held high, and a sharp tongue I could   fool 'most anyone
G           Cadd9        D 
  I never expected to be struck
       D              C             C           G  Cadd9  G  Cadd9       
By the fatal hands of fortune or by   sheer bad luck

(Chorus)
               Em  C          G            
But honey, now       we won't change
Em        C             G
  And memories just rearrange
    Em    C      G
And fall    into place
            D
So I'm back again
C                     G      Cadd9  G  Cadd9
  Oh, I'm a master pretender

(Middle8)
       C                   G
Oh the streets of New York City 
C           G                  D
  Sure look pretty from way up here
    C            G           
And I was headed home
C                 G                     D
  just found more alone the further I'd go

(Verse)
G          Cadd9                 G    Cadd9
  I always thought that you'd be here
    D                C      C               G      Cadd9  G  Cadd9
But shit gets fucked up and people just disappear

(Chorus)
              Em  C          G
So honey, now,      don't be mad
Em         C          G 
  Time has told me it   can't be that bad and if it is, 
Em           C     G
  well, I'll be goddamned
           D
I'll stick around
C                     G         Cadd9  G  Cadd9        
  I'll be your master defender 
                 D
Yeah, I'll stick around
C                     G         Cadd9  G  Cadd9  
I'll be your master defender

(Outro)
G  Cadd9 G Cadd9  
G  Cadd9 G Cadd9  
G  Cadd9 G Cadd9  
G  Cadd9 G Cadd9  
G  Cadd9 G Cadd9  
G  Cadd9 G Cadd9

Nice tab. There's a walk down bass in the chorus on the low E string, G,Gb,E, but apart from that perfect. Good job.

I want to post or [tab]
