Introduction: E   A/E   D/E   E  (2 times)


Verse 1:
-------

E
She stood there bright as the sun
        A/E
On that California coast
D/E                             E
He was a Midwestern boy on his own
E
She looked at him with those soft eyes
   A/E
So innocent and blue
D/E                                    E
He knew right then he was too far from home

E A/E             D/E         E
     He was too far from home

E                                  A/E
She took his hand and she led him along that golden beach 
D/E                                     E
They watched the waves tumble over the sand
E
They drove for miles and miles
         A/E
Up those twisting turning roads
D/E                                E
Higher and higher and higher they climbed


Chorus:
------

E                           A/E
And those Hollywood nights. In those Hollywood hills
D                         E
She was looking so right. In her diamonds and frills
E                         A/E
Oh those big city nights. In those high rolling hills
D                     E
Above all the lights. She had all of her skills


Interlude:  D   A   E    E    ||     E   A/E   D/E   E


Verse 2:
-------

E                                     A/E                                    
He'd headed west cause he felt that a change would do him good
D/E                                 E
See some old friends, good for the soul
E
She had been born with a face
           A/E
That would let her get her way 
D/E                                      E
He saw that face and he lost all control

E A/E            D/E        E
     He had lost all control

E                             A/E
Night after night, Day after day It went on and on
D/E                                E
Then came that morning he woke up alone
E                                      A/E
He spent all night staring down at the lights on LA
D/E                           E
Wondering if he could ever go home


Chorus: (2 times)

E                           A/E
And those Hollywood nights. In those Hollywood hills
D                         E
She was looking so right. It was giving him chills
E                         A/E
In those big city nights. In those high rolling hills
D                     E
Above all the lights. With a passion that kills


E                           A/E
And those Hollywood nights. In those Hollywood hills
D                         E
She was looking so right. In her diamonds and frills
E                         A/E
Oh those big city nights. In those high rolling hills
D                     E
Above all the lights. She had all of her skills
