I was hoping someone would tab this song, but no one did, so I
had to do it.  I think it's one of his best ones.

  ..said she could change my..mind..."

Eb6          G#7   
She walked into my story
C#maj7                    C
Said she could change my mind...

(Riff 1)
This is the final offer
She said to make it clear
(Riff 2)
Don't lose out on this wonder
So I had to place my bets


Chorus 1:
---------
Fm              Eb      G#
Welcome to the picture show
              C#     Eb
watching your life
Fm               Eb     G#
Never know which way to go
                C#
It might not be right

(No chords)
So better be strong

Play riff 1...once

Verse 2:
--------
(Riff 1)
What kind of circus is this?
What kind of fools are we?
(Riff 2)
When is the final curtain
What can I do to set me free

Chorus 2: (same chords as chorus 1)
---------
Welcome to the real world
Better be strong
Never know which way to go
It might end up wrong

So better be string


Play Riff 1...once.

Bridge:
-------
C#       Eb               Fm
Too many games we have to play
C#          Eb        Fm
They always blame the rules
C#      Eb      Fm              C#
You and me just trying to get along
                C
What can I do...got to be strong.
