Here is what I think the intro to Life in the Fast Lane (by the
Eagles) is:

E---------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------
G-----2---0--------------------2---0----------
D-0^2---2---2p0------------0^2---2---2p0------
A---------------0------------------------0----
E-----------------3-0----------------------3--

E----------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------
G-----2---0---------------2---0----------
D-0^2---2---2p0-------0^2---2---2p0------
A---------------0-------------------0----
E-----------------3-0-----------------3--

The difference between the two above riffs is that the first has a break in
it (the big space) and the second is continuous.

         E
He was a hard headed man.  He was brutally handsome, and she was
 
terminally pretty.  She held him up, and he held her for ransom in the
                                          A7 
heart of the cold, cold city.  He had a nasty reputation as a cruel dude.
         E                                                      B7
They said he was ruthless; they said he was crude.  They had one thing
                                             A7
in common; they were good in bed.  She'd say, "Faster, faster.  The lights

are turnin' red."


E Tacet                E Tacet                         E Tacet
Life in the fast lane surely make you lose your mind.  Life in the 
            E Tacet
fast lane, mmmm.


Are you with me so far?

E
Eager for action and hot for the game, the coming attraction, the drop 

of a name.  They knew all the right people; they took all the right

pills.  They threw outrageous parties; they paid heavily bills.
          A7                                               E
There were lines on the mirror, lines on her face.  She pretended not
                                           B7
to notice; she was caught up in the race.  Out every evening until it
                A7 
was light, he was too tired to make it; she was too tired to fight 

about it.


E Tacet                E Tacet                   E Tacet
Life in the fast lane; everything all the time.  Life in the fast lane,
E Tacet
uh huh.  

E
Blowin' and burnin', blinded by thirst, they didn't see the stop sign;

took a turn for the worst.  She said, "Listen, baby.  You can hear 

the engine ring.  We've been up and down this highway; haven't seen
                            A7
a god-dam thing."  He said, "Call the doctor.  I think I'm gonna crash.
   E     
The doctor says he's coming; but you gotta pay him cast."  They went
   B7                                                 A7
rushin' down that freeway; messed around and got lost.  They didn't

know they were just dying to get off.
 
          E                           D/E     
And it was life in the fast lane,     
C/E                       A/E
life in the fast lane.
