The Actress

Roy Orbison

Tom: G
   C    D   G 
Oooo oooo ooo 
Well, you should be an actress  
You play your part so well  
Your act is so believeable 
That no one else can tell  
You say the lines but I see  
That you don?t really love me  
You keep me around to be your faithful clown  
     G                           Bm 
Till someone you can love comes along  
    C                 Am    
And you?ll keep on pretending  
  C         D            G 
Because the show must go on  
Yes, you should be an actress  
As lovely as you are  
The way you play on emotions  
You?d shame the brightest star  
You?re acting all the time  
No, you?re not really mine  
I?m just another scene in your ?play acting? scheme  
No, you don?t love me at all  
But when you walk away  
That?s when the curtain will fall  
         Bm         F#m        C  
But I?ll go all the way to the end of the play  
D                      G     G+  
I?ll be a part of your masquerade  
  C        D           G              Bm 
Although I know it may be the saddest show 
        C        D       G  
In the life of a fool on parade
