LEAD PART PLAYS VERSES (Look at the end of my tab)

Oh look at me so ordinary, no mystery, with no great capabilities,

Bridge:

    Em        D             C                G
But I could make out as if I had it but you don’t,
Em          D              C           G              D
God I’m so obvious and I should let it go oh I don’t know.


Chorus 1

G
I’m no teenage icon,
C         D
I’m no Frankie Avalon,
G               C  D   G
I’m nobody’s hero.

Verse 2


Reserved and shy your average guy, no piercing stare, just out of shape with messy hair,

Bridge:

    Em         D            C          G
But I always figured I was somebody in wake,
Em            D                C             G                D
  And now I’m guessing that my moment must be late cause I'm here.

Chorus 2

G
I’m no teenage icon,
C          D
I’m no Frankie Avalon,
G               C   D   G
I’m nobody’s hero.

Solo : G C D Em D C G Em D C G Em D C  G  D

Middle 8 (although it's 16 bars) :

C        D          G     C
I’m not magnetic or mythical,
C      D         G     C
I’m suburban and typical,
C              D    G       C                   D    G
But I got it, I got I’m overrun with it all.

Verse 3


Seductive charm a way with words so effortless not leather clad or dangerous,

Bridge:

    Em       D             C             G
But I always did it like a real rebel would,
Em        D                C                G
  I had a photo where John Lennon may have stood,
          D
or so I’m told.

Chorus 3

G
I’m no teenage icon,
C         D
I’m no Frankie Avalon,
G               C  D
I’m nobody’s hero.

Solo 2: (G, C, D, G, C, D)


Chorus 4

G
I’m no teenage icon,
C         D
I’m no Frankie Avalon,
G              C  D    G
I’m nobody’s hero.
