The Pretender

[Verse 1]
D
He picked me from my parents home
   G               A                  E     Bm
He took me to the latest showing of a movie
        D
I don't remember well
       G
'Cause all I see is him
              A
Rugged in the wind
 
   D
He lit me up
 
Rewrote my name
   G                      A
He smoked his weed and I hesitated
   Bm                    D
Oh Heavenly Father, if I sin
         G                   A
Will you ever look at me the same again?
 
 
[Chorus]
       G                A
He was champagne, I was underaged
 D                   G
Drinking on a bender
G              A                   D
It was better being the pretender
 
G    A
 
 
[Verse 2]
 D
Lightning storm on my sweet sixteen
  G                A
I locked my door, told him my teenage dreams
    Bm                    A           D
And we embraced like the sand and the sea
   G                      A
I handed over contraband parts of me
 
Bm                   D
After that, well I'm sure you know
    G
He never called again
     A
His headlights never showed
    Bm               D
The rest, I guess is history
 G
All I see is him
 A
Rugged in the wind
 
 
[Chorus]
        G               A
He was champagne, I was underaged
D             A       G
Drinking on a bender
                   A                   D   G
It was better than being the pretender
 
 
[Bridge]
A     G         A
Hallelujah, he loves me
    G           A
Hallelujah, he wants me
            Bm    D     G   A
He wants me not, not, oh
 
 
[Verse 3]
                D
He was champagne
      A
I was enraged
 D             A       G
Cussing like a sailor
                A                 Bm   A
So much harder feeling like a failure
       G
I was foolish
    A                    D
But he was the pretender
 
G A D

                  He picked me from my parents home
He took me to the latest showing of a movie
I don't remember well
'Cause all I see is him
Rugged in the wind

He lit me up
Rewrote my name
He smoked his weed and I hesitated
Oh Heavenly Father, if I sin
Will you ever look at me the same again?

He was champagne, I was underaged
Drinking on a bender
It was better being the pretender

Lightning storm on my sweet sixteen
I locked my door, told him my teenage dreams
And we embraced like the sand and the sea
I handed over contraband parts of me

After that, I'm sure you know
He never called again
His headlights never showed
The rest, I guess is history
All I see is him
Rugged in the wind

He was champagne, I was underaged
Drinking on a bender
It was better than being the pretender

Hallelujah, he loves me
Hallelujah, he wants me
He wants me not, not, oh

He was champagne
I was enraged
Cussing like a sailor
So much harder feeling like a failure
I was foolish
But he was the pretender
