Nickelback - "Rockstar"
Tabbed by: Yosh Tulwar

This is for those having trouble with A#, D# or any other chord.
Most chords in this song are fingered as you would an open-F or open-C:


Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)


[Verse]

      G    C    F    G
e|----0----0----0----0------------------------|
B|----3----0----1----3------------------------|
G|----4----5----2----4------------------------|
D|----5----5----3----5------------------------|
A|----5----3----3----5------------------------|
E|----3----0----1----3------------------------|


                 G
I'm through with standing in line to clubs we'll never get in
              C
It's like the bottom of the ninth and I'm never gonna win
     F                                                 G
This life hasn't turned out quite the way I want it to be

         G
I want a brand new house on an episode of Cribs
      C 
And a bathroom I can play baseball in
      F                                     G   
And a king size tub big enough for ten plus me

            G
I'll need a credit card that's got no limit
      C    
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
      F                                 G
Gonna join the mile high club at 37,000 feet

         G
I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
       C
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
    F                                             G
Somewhere between Cher and James Dean is fine for me


[Pre-Chorus]

B|----6-----8----------------------|
G|----7-----9----------------------|
D|----8-----10---------------------|
A|----8-----10---------------------|
E|----6-----8----------------------|

          A#
I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
         C~
I'd even cut my hair and change my name


[Chorus]

      G    A#   C    D#   F

D|----5----8----2----5----3-------|
A|----5----8----3----6----3-------|
E|----3----6----3----6----1-------|


          G
'Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
            A#
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
    C 
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
      D#                        F
We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat
          G 
And we'll hang out in the coolest bars
       A#
In the VIP with the movie stars
      C 
Every good gold digger's gonna wind up there
      D#                     F
Every Playboy bunny with her bleach blond hair


      A#    C     G

B|----6-----8-----3-----------------|
G|----7-----9-----4-----------------|
D|----8-----10----5-----------------|

A#   C                     G
Hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar
A#   C                     G
Hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar

          D#
I'm gonna sing those songs that offend the censors
      A#
Gonna pop my pills from a pez dispenser
         D#
I'll get washed-up singers writing all my songs
    C                              F~
Lip sync em every night so I don't get 'em wrong


          G
'Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
            A#
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
    C 
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
      D#                        F
We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat
          G 
And we'll hang out in the coolest bars
       A#
In the VIP with the movie stars
      C 
Every good gold digger's gonna wind up there
      D#                     F
Every Playboy bunny with her bleach blond hair

          G
And we'll hide out in the private rooms
            A#
With the latest dictionary and today's who's who
    C 
They'll get you anything with that evil smile
      D#                        F
Everybody's got a drug dealer on speed dial and

A#   C                     G
Hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar
A#   C                     G
Hey, hey, I wanna be a rawkstar
