Wicked Game
   Chris Isaak, from _Heart-Shaped_World_

transcription by [email protected] (patrick m. ryan)
	(formerly [email protected])

Notes:
	This song sounds great on a Strat.  I figured out 99%
of this song myself and confirmed my interpretation when I
saw Chris Isaak on 'Saturday Night Live'.
	There are really two guitars in this tune.  Isaak is
strumming the rhythm on his acoustic while his lead guitarist
does the melody work.  Isaak plays the Bm A E progression
through most of the song.
	In my notation, a row of tildes (~) means 'wiggle the
tremelo bar'.  '\' means slide down and '/' means slide up.
The nice tremelo work along with a lot of reverb give this
song most of its atmosphere.
	The intro riff is hard to notate.  Basically, the sequence
on the B string is: pick open string (B), bend tremelo down 1/2 step,
hammer-on 7th fret (F#), release tremelo, pick 7th fret (F#), slide
down to open string.

lyrics:

We were on fire
No one could save me but you.
Strange what desire make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No, I don't want to fall in love
   This girl is only gonna break your heart
No, I don't want to fall in love
   This girl is only gonna break your heart
With you
With you

What a wicked game to play
To make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do
To let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say
You never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do
To make me dream of you

And I wanna fall in love
   This girl is only gonna break your heart
And I don't want to fall in love
   This girl is only gonna break your heart

World was on fire
No one could save me but you
Strange what desire make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

And I wanna fall in love
   This girl is only gonna break your heart
And I wanna fall in love
   This girl is only gonna break your heart
With you
With you

Nobody loves no one
