Intro:

A

Verse 1:

                    F#m       E        D
Did you ever hear a-bout The Great De-ception?
A                                                     F#m
 Well, the plastic revolutionaries take the money and run.
A                   F#m   E       D
 Have you ever been down to Love City?
F#m                                           E            A
 Where they rip you off with a smile, and it don't take a gun.

Verse 2:

A                 F#m  E       D
 Don't it hurt so bad in Love city?
A                                        F#m
 Don't it make you not want to bother at all?
               A    F#m E    D
And don't they look so self righteous,
          F#m           E          A
When they pin you up a-gainst the wall?

Chorus 1:

        E                  D
Did you ever, ever see the people,
         C#m                  D
With the tear drops in their eyes?
       E                        D
I just can't stand it, stand it no how,
       C#m               A    (n.D)
Living in this world of lies.

Verse 3:

                    F#m       E             D
Did you ever hear a-bout the Rock and Roll singers?
A                        F#m
 Got three or four Cadil-lacs.
       A            F#m      E           D
Saying power to the people, dance to the music;
F#m                    E      A
 Wants you to pat him on the back.

Verse 4:

                      F#m       E     D
Have you ever heard a-bout the great Rembrandt?
                      A                 F#m
Have you ever heard a-bout how he could paint?
                     A     F#m    E       D
And he didn't have e-nough money for his brushes;
         F#m             E      A
And they thought it was rather quaint.

Chorus 2:

        E                   D
But you know it's no use re-peating,
        C#m                  D
And you know it's no use to think about it.
              E               D        A (n.D)
'Cos when you stop to think a-bout it; you don't need it.

Verse 5:

                      F#m       E
Have you ever heard a-bout the great,
D
 Hollywood motion picture actor,
A                        F#m
 Who knew more than they did?
        A          F#m     E         D
And the newspapers didn't cover the story;
F#m               E       A
 Just decided to keep it hid.

Verse 6:

         F#m      E                D
Somebody started saying it was an inside job;
A                     F#m
 Whatever happened to him?
A               F#m       E           D
 Last time they saw him, down on the bow'ry;
         F#m                     E               A
With his lip hanging off an old rusty bottle of gin.

Verse 7:

                      F#m       E         D
Have you ever heard a-bout the so-called Hippies?
A                            F#m
 Down on the far side of the tracks.
              A        F#m       E           D
They take the eyeballs straight out of your head,
         F#m                    E        A
Say son, kid, do you want your eyeballs back?

Chorus 3:

        E                  D
Did you ever, ever see the people,
         C#m                  D
With the tear drops in their eyes?
       E                        D
I just can't stand it, stand it no how,
       C#m               A    (n.D)
Living in this world of lies.

Verse 8:

                    F#m       E        D
Did you ever hear a-bout The Great De-ception?
A                                                     F#m
 Well, the plastic revolutionaries take the money and run.
A                   F#m   E       D
 Have you ever been down to Love City?
F#m                                           E            A
 Where they rip you off with a smile, and it don't take a gun.

Outro:

                            F#m  E  F#m
