Tom: E
        Verse 1
-------
[NOTE: all "B"'s below played with "main riff"]
B 
  I live my life in the city
B
  There's no easy way out
C#m                  A                  B
    The day's moving just too fast for me
B
  Need some time in the sunshee-ine
B
  Gotta slow it right down
C#m                  A                  B
    The day's moving just too fast for me

Pre-chorus
----------
  G#m                  E
I live my life for the stars that shine
    B
And people say it's just a waste of time
G#m                     E
Then they said I should feed my head
    B
But that to me was just a day in bed
     G#m             E
I'll take my car and drive real far
   B
To where they're not concerned about the way we are
    A   
Cos in my mind my dreams are real
F#
Are you concerned about the way I feel

Chorus
------
   A               E                               B (w/ main riff)

A                                  E                          ?
You're not down with who I am      look at you now you're all in my hands

   B (w/main riff)                              [NOTE: I have no idea what
Tonight!                                        that "?" chord is, or if
                                                it's correct!]

[SOLO over chords  B     C#m  A   B]

[VERSE 1 repeat]
[Pre-chorus repeat]
[Chorus repeat]

Here, song goes to an "A", then starts alternating between "F#" and "E",
then Liam starts singing "It's just rock and roll" and the alternation
between "F# and "E" starts getting faster, and that's the end of the song.

Enjoy!!

By the way, if anybody has a take on that verse riff in this song that
sounds better than the one I've got, please send it to me.



2ºversão:

ROCK 'N' ROLL STAR      by Oasis (well .. Noel Gallagher)
===================     from "Definitely Maybe"
 
Its taken me ages to figure out that he goes to Ab at the 
bridge type bit (pre-chorus). He throws in these unexpected
chords fairly often it seems (see the Supersonic transcription at
OLGA which is fine except it goes to D not E on the chorus as is 
written).
 
Most (if not all) of the chords are barred, the B at the
7th and theres a lot of taking off of the barre (fore) finger so it 
adds an E and an A. Other than that just turn up the overdrive.
 
intro: B (mess around) then B A->E B
 
B
I live my life in the city -  there's no easy way out
A               E                 B
The days moving just too fast for me,
B
Need some time in the sunshhyynnnnne - gotta slow it right down
A               E                 B
The days moving just too fast for me.
 
  Ab                    E
I live my life for the stars that shine
B
People say its just a waste of time
Ab                           E
When they said I should just feed my head 
B                    
That to me was just a day in bed
     Ab              E
I'll take my car and drive real far
                 B                                     
To where they're not concerned about the way we are 
 
A                   
In my mind my dreams are real
F#                        
Are you concerned about the way I feel ?
 
A  E                        B
To-night  I'm a rock'n'roll star
A  E                        B
To-night  I'm a rock'n'roll star
A  E                        B
To-night  I'm a rock'n'roll star.
 
Then: repeat the whole of above until :
 
To-night  I'm a rock'n'roll star
To-night  I'm a rock'n'roll star
A  E                        B
To-night  I'm a rock'n'roll star.
 
A                   
Are you down with who I am
E                
Look at you'll now you're all in my hands - tonight.
 
solo: over verse chords (B A E)
 
To-night  I'm a rock'n'roll star
To-night  I'm a rock'n'roll star
To-night  I'm a rock'n'roll star.
