Sunset Boulevard

Year: 1998 - Album: Live

	  This song uses a chord that I don't know the name of.  It's basically a G, but 
the fingers on E and A are moved over one string to A and D.  It looks like 
this: 
  ! 
------ 
--*--- 
-*--** 
------ 
The same thing happens in Robert Earl Keen's Corpus Christi Bay, where he 
shifts between the G and that chord (!) during the verses.  The verses in this 
song are basically the same way.  If you play the G with your pinky on the 
high E, third fret, it sounds more like the CD. 
 
Charlie plays this song with a capo on the 4th fret 
 
G                             !         G                             ! 
Well, I wish I had my picture on the Rolling stone today 
G                   !                        G                        ! 
I wish that the Enquirer spread a rumor that I was gay 
G                        !           G                                ! 
I wish I had some buddies, some movie stars and such 
G                                   !                 G                      ! 
Cause I probably wouldn't worry about the two of us as much 
 
Chorus: 
C                            D             G--walkdown--Em 
And I'd spend all my money on caviar and cocaine 
C                      D                          C            D      G 
And I would not remember how you broke my heart today 
 
You know I, I wish I had a super model so skinny and so wild 
And a waitress in Nevada, she says she's carrying my child 
I'd drive down Sunset Boulevard, my hair blowin' in the wind 
I'd stop at fancy restaurants and they'd finally let me in 
 
Chorus 
 
Yeah, I wish I had my picture with the Rolling Stones today 
And I wish the enquirer would spread a rumor that I was gay 
I wish I knew a movie star, someone like Charlie Sheen 
'Cause if he'd hang out with  Kato Kaelin 
Well I guess he'd hang out with me 
And I'd spend all my money on caviar and rogaine 
And I would not remember how you broke my heart today
