(verses)
C G E7
Baby if you'd just say you care
Am G F
Follow you most anywhere
C
Roll away the stone
G F
Roll away the stone
And in the darkest night
I'll keep you safe and all right
Roll away the stone
Roll away the stone
(chorus)
C G F G
Won't you roll away the stone (sha la la la push push)
C G F G
Why be cold and so-o-o alone (sha la la la push push)
C G F
Won't you roll away the stone
G Am
Don't you let it die (repeat intro)
No matter if fools say we can't win
I know I'll fall in love again
Roll away the stone
Roll away the stone
So sing "We still got a chance"
Baby at love and sweet romance
Roll away the stone
Roll away the stone
(repeat chorus and intro)
