Still Love Rock n Roll

(Ian Hunter)

Intro: F# (2 bars/ E (2bars)/ B (4 bars)
B E
Way back in the 50's - you never said a wrong word
F#
People were clean - people were mean
E B
Children should be seen, but children should be not heard
E
You learned to keep your mouth shut - you did what you were told
F#
But then one day the radio played
E B
The sound that we'd all been waiting for
The whole of our lives 'n'
E
I still love Rock 'n' Roll - I play it every day
F#
Hummin' along, singin' the song
E B
It's the only way - I know how to say what's on my mind
E
I get up in the morning - put the kettle on the stove
F#
Tommy Steele croons a Guy Mitchell tune
E B
I never felt more like singin' the blues - but if I had to choose
You know I still love rock 'n' roll
E
I still love rock 'n' roll (let me hear ya)
B (2 bars)/ E (2 bars)
B E
I never been to Lubbock, Texas or Memphis, Tennessee
F#
I never washed dishes in Macon, Georgia
E B
I wasn't half as good and I wasn't half as pretty as you
E
But I still got the feelings - embedded in my soul
F#
A rebel armada - Kettering, Granada
E B
It ain't my fault that I never grew up - I got bitten by your bug
E
And I still love rock 'n' roll, I still love rock 'n' roll,
B E
I still love rock 'n' roll, I still love rock 'n' roll
F# (2 bars)/ E (2 bars)
D A D A
I know what you're thinkin' - it's a little bit strange to you
D A B
I know what you're thinkin' - 'cos I'm thinkin' the same way too
E
But oh those two little four letter words - they're all you need to know
F#
'cos when it all comes down to it - I don't like the sound of it
When you mess around with it -
E B
I'm still in it for the thrill of it
I know you tried to kill it but
B E
I still love rock 'n' roll - I play it every day
F#
Hummin' along - singin' the songs
E B
It's the only way I know how to say what's on my mind
E
I get up every morning - I put the coffee on the stove
F#
The computer's gone - the turntable's on
E B
I can't believe it's 2001 - God, I must be knockin' on
E
But I still love rock 'n' roll, I still love rock 'n' roll, (4 times)
Outro: F# (2 bars/ E (2bars)/ D (1 bar)/ A (1 bar)/B (2 bars)
