A
        G         
So your girlfriend slammed the door shut
        D      
In your face tonight
                    A
But that's all right
         G
Then she took off to the opera
              D                        A
With some highbrow from the city lights
         D  
Well you grew up on a corner
        G                           A
And you never missed a moonlit night.

                        G6
Some things never change
     D(addE)/F#          Fmaj7
They stay the way they are
D                 E
Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho
Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho
         A
You were born to rock

You'll never be an opera star
         D7
You were born to rock
                             A
You'll never be an opera star

Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho
Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho

So you stay out all night
Gettin' fucked up in that rock and roll bar
And you never get tired
'Cause your drugs are in a little jar

You were born to rock
You'll never be an opera star
Some things never change
They stay the way they are

Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho
Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho
I was born to rock
Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho
Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho

So your girlfriend slammed the door shut
In your face tonight
But that's all right
Then she took off to the opera
With some highbrow from the city lights
Well you grew up on a corner
And you never missed a moonlit night.

Some things never change
They stay the way they are
Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho
Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho

You were born to rock
You'll never be an opera star
You were born to rock
Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho
Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho

About the artist behind Opera Star Chords:

Neil Percival Young[1] OM (born November 12, 1945, Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician and film director.

Young's work is characterized by deeply personal lyrics, distinctive guitar work, and signature nasal tenor singing voice. Although he accompanies himself on several different instruments—including piano and harmonica—his style of claw-hammer acoustic guitar and often idiosyncratic soloing on electric guitar are the linchpins of a sometimes ragged, sometimes polished sound. Although Young has experimented widely with differing music styles, including swing, jazz, rockabilly, blues, and electronic music throughout a varied career, his best known work usually falls into either of two distinct styles: folk-esque acoustic rock (as heard in songs such as "Heart of Gold", "Harvest Moon" and "Old Man") and electric-charged hard rock (in songs like "Cinnamon Girl", "Rockin' in the Free World" and "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)"). In more recent years, Young has started to adopt elements from newer styles of music, such as industrial, alternative country and grunge, the latter of which was profoundly influenced by his own style of playing, often bringing him the title of "the godfather of grunge".

Young has directed (or co-directed) a number of films using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey, including Journey Through the Past (1973), Rust Never Sleeps (1979), Human Highway (1982), and Greendale (2003).[2]

He is also an outspoken advocate for environmental issues and small farmers, having co-founded the benefit concert Farm Aid, and in 1986 helped found The Bridge School,[3] and its annual supporting Bridge School Benefit concerts, together with his wife Pegi.

Although Young sings frequently about U.S. legends and myths (Pocahontas, space stations, and the settlement of the American West),[4] he remains a Canadian citizen and has never wanted to relinquish his Canadian citizenship. He has lived in the U.S. for "so long" and has stated, about U.S. elections, that he has "got just as much right to vote in them as anybody else."[5]
