                            "Let's Pretend"
                             (Eric Carmen)

Verse 1:

	G       F/G
	I can't sleep nights
	Am                Bm     C  CaddD/A
	Wishing you were here beside me
	 G         F/G
	Can't help feelin'
	Am7                D7      G
	That's the way it ought to be

	                 B7/D#           Em
	You know we could run (run, run away)
	               D7/F#    G        /B            C    Am7  Am7/D
	But I couldn't bear to hear the things they'd say,  oh no

Chorus:

	       G                  Bm                   C     /B  Am7
	Baby, let's pretend that tonight could live forever
	      FaddG                Am7/D     D7         G    CaddD  /D
	If we close our eyes and believe it might come true
	       G                     Bm                          C    /B Am7
	Baby, let's pretend we could always [1,4: be 2,3: live] together
	       FaddG            Am7/D      D7        B7
	But for now just let me spend the night with you

	  [1:  CaddD /D; to verse 2]
	  [2:  to bridge]
	  [3, 4:  CaddD /D; repeat]

Verse 2:

	Somehow, someday
	Things are gonna be so different
	Don't cry, some way
	I promise it'll be all right
	So now that we're all alone
	I couldn't bear to leave to take you home, oh no

	[repeat chorus]

Bridge:

	            C                B7sus4 B7
	So take me now, my love can't wait
	              Em        G7/D
	We're almost there now, darlin', darlin'
	 C                  Am
	Hold me (hold me), hold me (hold me)
	FaddG   D7sus4
	Ho-oh-old me

[repeat chorus to end; start to fade 2nd time]


-- another ace 70's tab from Andrew Rogers

Another great Raspberries tune, these guys were so good, not around that long but still memorable. Wally Bryson is an awesome guitar player. The Raspberries "Very Best of" CD is great, they combined sounds from the Beatles, the Who, the Small Faces, & the Beach Boys to make a sound all their own... also they sounded similar to Badfinger who was another kickass band from the late 60's/early 70's!

Yes. Power pop at it's best. Wish I could play more of there songs but most have some tricky chords for a novice. Ahh its frustrating. Anyway, their songs still sound fresh, exciting and emotionally satisfying even today. Awesome band.
