VERSE 1:
--------

NB to make the chord shapes at the 10th and 12th frets 
easier to write, I'll use:

A = 10
B = 11
C = 12


AAAAAA   ACABAA 
We got a break, unbelievable

AAAAAA   ACABAA              AAAAAA
We got a break, right in the middle of this

555555     575655
Hollywood  heartache              

            555555
We got this solid love  

         xx0000   222100       444300      555555  575655
All around the town good hearts are going under

                 555555        575655
Love bandits con and plunder  

               555555       777777  CCCCCC   777777
Let nobody put asunder this solid   love



VERSE 2:
--------

(Same chords as verse 1, except last line)

We got a chance, hot dog darlin'
We got a chance
No more, no more fly-by-night romance
We got this solid love
Love has always made me feel so uneasy
I couldn't relax and just be me

575655                   555555          777777  CCCCCC  
More like some strange disease than this solid   love 



MIDDLE 8:
---------

ACABAA     AAAAAA
Tested and blessed, darlin' 

          333333      555555
I'm gonna give you my very best

ACABAA                   AAAAAA   888888
You're my hope you're my happiness

242322
You open my heart you do    

242322                             222222
You open my heart, you do, yes you do


(For the last two lines, on the 242322 chord, alternate 
strums on the low and high strings - e.g play 2423xx
then xxx322)


The two verses and the middle 8 are repeated - same chords as 
before, except where indicated (lyrics are also slightly 
different).


VERSE 1 (repeat):
-----------------

We got a break, unbelievable
We got a break, right in the middle of this

Love bandits con and plunder  
Let no man put asunder this solid love


VERSE 2 (repeat):
-----------------

We got a chance, hot dog darlin'
We got a chance
No more, no more fly-by-night romance
We got this solid love
Love has always made me feel so uneasy

More like some strange disease than this solid love 


MIDDLE 8 (repeat):

ACABAA              AAAAAA
