[Intro]
E5      E
G       C   F  F G C  
 G
Am  F   G   F  Am   F G

[Verse 1]
       C      F       G
At the record company meeting,
C         F             G
On their hands: a dead star.
     Am       F               G
And ooh, the plans that they weave,
F   Am        F         G     E*
And ooh, the sickening greed.

[Verse 2]
       A      D       E
At the record company party
A         D             E
On their hands: a dead star.
    F#m         D         E
The sycophantic slags all say:
   D         A           D         E
"I knew him first, and I knew him well."
  A         D          E
Re-issue! Re-package! Re-package!
  A     D         E
Re-evaluate the songs,
F#m     D           E
Double pack with a photograph,
D      A            D     E      G
Extra track (and a tacky badge.)

[Verse 3]
C           F
A-list, playlist,
                     G
"Please them, please them, please them!"
 C      F                G
(Sadly, this was your life)
        Am              F           G
But you could have said no, if you'd wanted to,
F      Am             F           G
  You could have said no, if you'd wanted to.

[Verse 4]
  C       F
BPI, MTV, BBC,
        G
"Please them. please them!"
 C       F                G
(Sadly, this was your life)
        Am              F           G
But you could have said no, if you'd wanted to,
F   Am         F           G              E*
You could have walked away, couldn't you?

[Verse 5]
A    D                      E
  I touched you at the soundcheck,
     A     D           E
You had no real way of knowing.
      F#m     D                E        D
In my heart I begged, "Take me with you.
  F#m        D             E
I don't care where you're going."

[Verse 6]
       A           D
But to you I was faceless,
        E
I was fawning, I was boring.
   A               D        E
A child from those ugly new houses,
          F#m     D      E
Who could never begin to know,
D         F#m   D      E      G
Who could never really know.

[Verse 7]
A             D       E
Best of! Most of! Satiate the need,
A              D           E
Slip them into different sleeves!
 F#m       D          E     D
Buy both, and feel deceived,
F#m          D        E
Climber, new entry re-entry.

[Verse 8]
A            D
World tour!("Media whore!")
        E             A
"Please the press in Belgium!"
 D             E
(This was your life...)
            F#m       D            E     D
And when it fails to recoup? Well, maybe:
    F#m           D              E    G
You just haven't earned it yet, baby.

[Verse 9]
            C       F             G
I walked a pace behind you at the souundcheck.
       C        F         G
You're just the same as I am.
Am              F      G
What makes most people feel happy
F        Am        F   G
Leads us headlong into harm.
          C                F
So, in my bedroom in those ugly new houses,
  G         C   F           G
I dance my legs down to the knees.
    Am   F     G        F    Am    
   G       E*
But me and my true love will never meet again...

[Verse 10]
       A      D       E
At the record company meeting,
         A         D                E
On their hands, at last, a dead star!
             F#m   D            E
But they can never taint you in my eyes,
D        F#m   D         E
They can never touch you now.
         A      D           E
No, they cannot hurt you my darling,
     A      D         E
They cannot touch you now,
   F#m  D      E        D     F#m   
   E
But me  and my true love will never meet again.

great tab except this song isn't in standard tuning, either play it with a capo on 2nd fret or tune all strings two steps up. A lot of smiths songs are in this tuning actually. But great job anyways!
