Release the Stars by Rufus Wainwright 

!!Capo on First Fret!!

G          Am7            G                 
Why do you keep all your stars in 
           Am7      Cm         G
From your studio on Melrose Avenue?
          Am7            G           
You have locked all your assets up
   Am7      Cm            G  
In lifelong contracts to you.
            A7        G   B7           Em       B7
Didn't you know that old Hollywood is over?

G             Am7         G           
Oh, can't you see all the good that 
   Am7        Cm                   G
Celebrity can do for those in the dark?
       Am7           G         
Yes of course, I am speaking in 
    Am7                Cm             G
Metaphor for something more in your heart.
            A7       G    B7          Em       B7
Didn't you know that old Hollywood is over?


                 G                             C
So why not just release the gates and let them all come out?
                  G                          C
Remember that without them there would be no Paramount
             Em       Em(maj7) Em7        A7           Cm
No paramount need to ho-o-old  on to what isn't yours
            G      Cm     G     Am7
Release the stars

    G              C               G              
The more that you fight, then the more they will 
 C             Cm                G     
Scrutinize and realize just your size.
    C                   G                 
And believe me, you are no match 
        C               Cm                       G
For the public that has seen the whites of your eyes
           A7         G   B7          Em     B7
Didn't you know that old Hollywood is over?
F   B7           Em    B7
Old Hollywood is over

                G                              Am7
So why not just release the gates and let them all come out?
                  G                          Bm
Remember that without them there would be no Paramount
             Em       Em(maj7) Em7        A7           Cm
No paramount need to ho-o-o-ld on to what isn't yours
            G       Cm
Release the stars

             Em  Em(maj7)         
Release the stars...
             Em  Em(maj7)  
Release your love... 
             Em  Em(maj7)  
Release the stars....
             Em  Em(maj7)  
Release your love, 
             Em(maj7) Em 
'Cause Hollywood is over

            Cm            G                               
Why do you keep all your stars in
           Am7                  Em9
From your studio on Melrose Avenue?

Great tab. I love Rufus too. Thanks!
Any chance you could tab Rules and Regulations?

I found a tab of Rules & Regs on this thread from Rufus's fan forums:

Lots of good stuff on there!

hmm the chords are pretty many places and you need the great final where there are a couple of different chords. Like, the intro-chords are actually | G | C/G | G7 | C/G Cm/G |
And I'd think you should submit the chords in the correct key as well so that other guitarists can use this tab
