Song: Heartbeat city
Artist: The Cars
Composer: Ric Ocasek
Album: Heartbeat city

Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD' on ultimateGuitar.com)
22nd June 2016

Dsus2  = xx0230   Dm7 = xx0211   Fmaj7 = xx3210
Amadd9 = x07500   Em7 = 022030   G7/F  = xx3433

In the long bars of Dsus2 in the break you could add some
alternative bass notes onto the chord on the open and 2nd fret
of the 4th and 5th strings, listen to the bass on the track
and improvise freely around those notes.

[Intro]
  Dsus2

[Verse 1]
Amadd9                                    Dm7   Em7
        Oh, heartbeat city here we come,
Amadd9                              Dm7    Em7 
        And happy days we count on thumbs,
Amadd9                                     Dm7    Em7
        And nothing really gets us down,
Amadd9                              Dm7    Em7
        As long as Jackie's back in town,
Dm7              Em7     Dm7               Em7
    I'm glad you made it,    I can't com - plain!


[Chorus]
    Fmaj7   G7/F
Oh, Jackie,   ...what took you so long,
Fmaj7                     G7/F
      ...On just a holi - day?
    Fmaj7
Oh, Jackie, (Oh, Jackie, oh, Jackie!)

        And all you need, is what you've  ...got,
Amadd9                                   Dm7   Em7
        And there's a place for every - one,
Amadd9                                Dm7   Em7
        Under heartbeat city's golden sun!


[Chorus]
  Fmaj7
(Jackie!)  Oh, Jackie,
                  G7/F
(What took you so long?)  What took you so long?

      ...On just a holi - day?
    Fmaj7
Oh, Jackie, (Oh, Jackie, oh, Jackie!)
                  G7/F
(What took you so long?)  What took you so long?
