Verse 1:
Am                    F         
I was down at the New Amsterdam,
Dm                G
Staring at this yellow-haired girl
    Am                        F                 
Mr. Jones strikes up a conversation 
       G
With a black-haired flamenco dancer
Am                     F            Dm                     
She dances while his father plays guitar
               G
She's suddenly beautiful
   Am                  F       G
We all want something beautiful
G
Man I wish I was beautiful
  Am                       F
So come dance this silence down through the morning
Dm                  G       Am           F         G

Cut up, Maria!  
                     G
Show me some of them Spanish dances
Am          F       G
Pass me a bottle, Mr. Jones
Am         F    
Believe in me
Dm                 G
Help me believe in anything
 Am                 F                 G
'Cause I want to be someone who believes

Chorus 1:
C    F          G
Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales
C                          F
Stare at the beautiful women
G
"She's looking at you.  Ah, no, no, she's looking at me."
C                  F             
Smiling in the bright lights,
         G
Coming through in stereo
     C            F          
When everybody loves you,
G
You can never be lonely

Verse 2:
Am                  F     
Well, I'mma paint my picture
Dm                G
Paint myself in blue and red and black and gray
Am                   F                    G
All of the beautiful colors are very-very meaningful
     Am                          F       Dm                  
Yeah well you know gray is my favorite color
   G 
I felt so symbolic yesterday
Am          F             
If I knew Picasso 
        G
I would buy myself a gray guitar and play

Chorus 2:
C   F           G
Mr. Jones and me look into the future
C                          F
Yeah we stare at the beautiful women
G
"She's looking at you. I don't think so.  She's looking at me."
C                    F    G
Standing in the spotlight I bought myself a gray guitar
     C            F       
When everybody loves me, 
    G                  A
I will never be lonely

Said I'm never gonna be lonely

Hey, everybody wants to pass as cats
Am                                                
We all want to be big, big stars,
         G
Yeah but we got different reasons for that.
Am                     F         
Believe in me 'cause I don't believe in anything
    Am                                   G (start strumming)
And I want to be someone to believe, to believe, to believe yeah...

Chorus 3:
(strum normally)
C   F            G
Mr. Jones and me stumbling through the barrio

Yeah we stare at the beautiful women
 G
"She's perfect for you, man, there's got to be somebody for me."
C                 F   
I wanna to be Bob Dylan
   G
Mr. Jones wishes he was someone just a little more funky
     C           F           
When everybody loves you, 
      G
Oh son, that's just about as funky as you can be

C    F           G
Mr. Jones and me staring at the video
 C                   F                  
When I look at the television, 
          G
I wanna to see me staring right back at me
C                 F                  
We all want to be big stars, 
                               G
But we don't know why, and we don't know how
   C               F                        
But when everybody loves me, 
       G
I wanna be just about as happy as I can be.

    1. Thanks Michael. Yes that song is pretty old now. I can’t believe it was released in 1993. But it’s still a great song to play on the guitar.
