Intro: F Bb C7
       
       F           Bb        F     F7
Oh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender
   Bb            C7        F   F7
Pretending that I'm doing well
   Bb       C7        F        Bb
My need is such I pretend too much
    F          C7         F
I'm lonely but no one can tell


       F           Bb        F     F7
Oh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender
 Bb          C7          F  F7
Adrift in a world of my own
     Bb          C7             F     Bb
I've played the game but to my real shame
       F          C7          F   F7
You've left me to grieve all alone


    Bb            C7         F           F7
Too real is this feeling of make-believe
    Bb           C7           F              C7
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal


F            Bb        F     F7
Yes, I'm the great pretender
     Bb            C7         F    F7
Just laughin' and gay like a clown
  Bb       C7          F        Bb
I seem to be what I'm not, you see
    F          C7           F7
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
   F            C7            F    F7
Pretending that you're still around


    Bb            C7         F           F7
Too real is this feeling of make-believe
    Bb           C7           F              C7
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal


F            Bb        F     F7
Yes, I'm the great pretender
     Bb            C7         F    F7
Just laughin' and gay like a clown
  Bb       C7          F        Bb
I seem to be what I'm not, you see
    F          C7           F7
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
   F            C7            F        Bb      F
Pretending that you're still around,   still around

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
