...NEW BIOGRAPHY... by Van Morrison
-------------------................

*from 'Back on Top' (1999)*


*CAPO 3rd FRET*

(Original Key: Eb)


Intro:

C  Am, F  G (x2)

Verse 1:

C                          Am
 See you've got the new bi-ography,
F                       G
 Where did they get the info from?
C                     Am
 Same as before; some so-called friends,
F                  G
 Who claim to have known me then.

Verse 2:

C                               Am
 How come they've got such good memories,
     F               G
When I can't even re-member last week?
C                              Am
 Got to question where they're coming from,
F                                G
 What knowledge of me is it that they speak?

Bridge 1:

   C         Am
So far away, way back when,
    F                         G
The people that claim to have known me then.

Chorus 1:

C                                      Am
 They're not on my wavelength and it's such a shame,
F                           G
 That they have to play the name game.
    C                  Am
The fame game, oh, the name game.
             F                           G
Lord, it's a cryin' shame, Lord, tell me what's to blame?

Verse 3:

C                   Am
 Reinvented all the stories they know,
F                G
 Give them all a different slant.
C                               Am
 What is it that they're really looking for?
F                    G
 Just a hobby on the internet.

Bridge 2:

   C         Am
So far away, way back when,
    F                         G
The people that claim to have known me then.

Chorus 2:

C                                      Am
 They're not on my wavelength and it's such a shame,
F                           G
 That they have to play the name game.
    C                  Am
The fame game, oh, the name game.
             F                           G
Lord, it's a cryin' shame, Lord, tell me what's to blame?

Sax Solo:

C  Am, F  G (x2)

Break:

Am
 If they didn't really know me way back,
             F              G
How can they know me now in any respect?
Am
 It's a pity they don't feel the pain,
          F                       G
That they should pay the price to play, to play...

Chorus 3:

    C                  Am
The fame game, oh, the name game.
             F                           G
Lord, it's a cryin' shame, Lord, tell me what's to blame?

Chorus 4:

C                                      Am
 They're not on my wavelength and it's such a shame,
F                  G
 That they have to play, have to play...
    C                  Am
The fame game, oh, the name game.
             F
Lord, it's a cryin' shame,
              G
Lord, tell me what's to blame? They keep on playin'...

    C                  Am
The fame game, oh, the name game.
             F
Lord, it's a cryin' shame,
              G
Lord, tell me what's to blame? They keep on playin'...
    C                  Am
The fame game, oh, the name game.
             F
Lord, it's a cryin' shame,
              G
Lord, tell me what's to blame? They keep on playin'...

    C                  Am
The fame game, oh, the name game.
             F
Lord, it's a cryin' shame,
              G
Lord, tell me what's to blame? They keep on playin'...
