From: Len Moskowitz 
Subject: CRD: Talk of the Town (The Pretenders)

			    TALK OF THE TOWN
			    (The Pretenders)

[Disclaimer: This is my interpretation of this song.  I worked it out
from the CD and do not have the sheet music if it even exists -- LM.]

(Thanks to Clark Chang for the lyrics.)

The intro is a picked progression (an arpeggio) of the following two
chords.  (The "h" means hammer on.)

   G       Csus2 (repeat 4 times)
E              3
B               3
g      0      0  0
D            2
a     2   2h3
E  2h3

   G  Csus2 (twice)
E         3
b  3      3
g  0    0
D  0   H2
A  2   H3
E


B7     Em                      Am
Such a drag, to want something sometime,
          D
One thing leads to another, I know.
B7    Em                Am               D
Was a time I wanted you for mine, nobody knew.
B7                 Em                 Am
You arrived like a day, passed like a cloud,
         D                   [picked Csus2 with bass notes down to A, then D]
I made a wish. I said it out loud,
[picked Csus2 with bass notes down to A, then D]
Aloud in a crowd.
[picked Csus2 with bass notes down to A, then D]
Everybody heard,
                     [picked Csus2 with bass notes down to A, then back
                      to C]
'twas the talk of the town.

It's not my place to know what you feel,
I'd like to know but why should I.
Who were you then, who are you now.
Common laborer by night, by day highbrow
Back in my room, I wondered then I
Sit on the bed, look at the sky,
Up in the sky, clouds rearrange
Like the talk of the town.

G (use opening riff on G only)
Maybe tomorrow, maybe someday.
Maybe tomorrow, maybe someday.
G      Csus2
You've changed, you've changed,
G                  Csus2
Your place in this world.
G      Csus2
You've changed, you've changed,
G                  Csus2
Your place in this world.


 Csus2  G  Csus2

Oh, but it's hard to live by the rules,
I never could, and still never do.
The rules and such never bothered you,
You call the shots and they follow.
I watch you still from a distance then go
Back to my room, you never know.
I want you, I want you but now,
Is the talk of the town.


Maybe tomorrow, maybe someday.
Maybe tomorrow, maybe someday.
You've changed, you've changed,
Your place in this world.
You've changed,
Your place in this world.
