[Verse 1]  (piano arranged for guitar)

Below is roughly what the piano is playing.  It's a lot easier to play
on a piano than a guitar.  Stick with the basic chords.  The timing has
been stretched to fit the lyrics.

    D                 G6    Em7          Asus4            A      A5
E|--14--12--10--------------10-----------10---------------9--10--12--|
B|--10--10--10--------12----12-----------10--10-10-10-10-10--10--10--|
G|--11--11--11--------12----12------------9---9--9--9--9--9---9---9--|
D|--12--12--12--------14-14-14-14------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
         I heard you on     the wireless back   in fifty two
         Lying      a-wake  in bed then  tuning in on    you
         If I was     young it didn't   stop you coming  through
    Oh   -  ah   -    oh.


[Verse 2]

D             G6              Asus4/A      A/Asus4/A
They took the credit for your second symphony
Rewritten     by machine and  new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see

(Oh-a-oh) I met your children
(Oh-a-oh) What did you tell them ?


[Chorus]

  D                A
  Video killed the radio star
  Video killed the radio star

D        A        G
Pictures came and broke your heart

A           Bm
(Oh-A-oh-oh-oh)


[Verse 3]

And now we meet in an abandoned studio
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago
And you remember the jingles used to go

(Oh-a-oh) You were the first one
(Oh-a-oh) You were the last one


[Chorus]

  D                A
  Video killed the radio star
  Video killed the radio star

D        A        G
Pictures came and broke your heart

A           Bm
(Oh-A-oh-oh-oh)

D        A          G
In my    mind and   in my car, we
can't re-wind we've gone to far

A           Bm
(Oh-A-oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-A-oh-oh-oh)

[Chorus]

  D                A
  Video killed the radio star
  Video killed the radio star

D        A        G
Pictures came and broke your heart

A           Bm
(Oh-A-oh-oh-oh)


D        A          G
In my    mind and   in my car, we
can't re-wind we've gone to far
Pictures came and   broke your heart
Put the  blame on   VTR

You are the radio star

[Chorus]

  D                A
  Video killed the radio star
  Video killed the radio star

D        A        G
Pictures came and broke your heart

A           Bm
(Oh-A-oh-oh-oh)

(fade out)
