"Chameleon" by Dave Barnes
From "What We Want, What We Get" (2010)
Tabbed by Kevin Dorth and Wessley Mitchell

Tuning:  Standard
Capo:  6

(When Dave Barnes plays Chameleon, he tunes his guitar
up six steps.  Since this is rough on a regular guitar,
we are using a capo on fret six.  Just play the chords
as written, and you should okay.)

Intro:
C#7  C7  B7*  A#7


Verse 1:
E7
Chameleon, you're breakin' his heart.

It's in pieces on the ground, all apart.
A7                                  D7                         E7
There's nothing that that boy won't do, when it comes to you.
E7
Chameleon, you know that it's wrong,

But it's fun to have someone you can pull along.
A7                                 D7                      E7
The way you treat that boy ain't fair, but he don't care.
             A7                                   E7
What does it mean if you know you don't mean it?
             A7                              B7
What does it say if you got nothing to say?


Chorus:
               E7
He's just your silly little thing, hangin' on a string,
                                           A7
Waitin' by the phone, prayin' it'll ring.
                          E7
You know it ain't right.

'Cause you ain't never gonna do what he wants to,
                                         A7
Kneelin' by the bed, prayin' it's true.
                          E7
You know it ain't right.

You know it ain't right.

C#7  C7  B7*  A#7


Verse 2:
E7
Chameleon, what's he gonna do?

You gloss them lips, shake them hips.

Honey, what's wrong with you?
      A7                      D7                        E7
He'll follow you wherever you go, and I know you know.
             A7                                   E7
What does it mean if you know you don't mean it?
             A7                              B7
What does it say if you got nothing to say?


Chorus:
               E7
He's just your silly little thing, hangin' on a string,
                                           A7
Waitin' by the phone, prayin' it'll ring.
                          E7
You know it ain't right.

'Cause you ain't never gonna do what he wants to,
                                         A7
Kneelin' by the bed, prayin' it's true.
                          E7
You know it ain't right.


Bridge:
D7                      A7               E7
    You ain't gotta tell me, he fell too fast.
D7                         A7                       B7
    But won't you just tell him that it ain't gonna last?

Oh, no, it ain't gonna last.

E7  A7  E7  E7  A7  E7

             A7                                   E7
What does it mean if you know you don't mean it?
             A7                              B7
What does it say if you got nothing to say?


Chorus:
               E7
He's just your silly little thing, hangin' on a string,
                                           A7
Waitin' by the phone, prayin' it'll ring.
                          E7
You know it ain't right.

'Cause you ain't never gonna do what he wants to,
                                         A7
Kneelin' by the bed, prayin' it's true.
                          E7
You know it ain't right.

You know it ain't right.
