Cover of the Rolling Stone
Dr. Hook

A
Well we are big rock singers

we've got golden fingers
E
and we're loved everywhere we go,

we sing about beauty and we sing about thruth
E7 A
at ten thousand dollars a show;

we take all kind of pills

to give us all kind of thrills,
D
but the thrill we've never known,
E
is the thrill that'll get you

when you get your picture

A
on the cover of the Rolling Stone

CHORUS:
A E
Rolling Stone

wanna see my picture on the cover
A
wanna buy five copies for my mother
E
wanna see my smilin' face
D A
on the cover of the Rolling Stone

A
I've got a freaky old lady

called my Cocain Katy
E
who embroiders on my jeans,

I've got my poor old gray-haired Daddy,
E7 A
drivin' my limousine

Now it's all designed

to blow our minds
D
but our minds won't really be blown,
E
like the blow that'll get you

when you get your picture
A
on the cover of the Rolling Stone

CHORUS

A
We got a lot of

little teenage, blue-eyed groupies
E
who do anything we say,

we got a genuine Indian guru,
E7 A
who's teachin' us a better way,

we got all the friends

that money can buy,
D
so we never have to be alone,
E
and we keep gettin' richer

but we can't get our picture
A
on the cover of the Rolling Stone

WASTED TIME
Don Henley & Glenn Frey

C Fm6
Well, baby, there you stand
C/G F G7
with your little head down in your hand.
F Am7 Dm Am7
Oh my God, you can't believe it's happening again.
F Am7 Dm F G7
Your baby's gone and you're all alone and it looks like the end.
Verse 2:
(repeat verse 1 chords above)
And you're back out on the street
and you're tryin' to remember.
How do you start it over? You don't know if you can.
You don't care much for a stranger's touch but you can't hold your man.
Chorus:
Am E/G#
You never thought you'd be alone
G D/F#
this far down the line
F Em
and I know what's been on your mind,
Dm F G7 C
you're afraid it's all been wasted time.
Bridge:
Bm7 E7 Am
The autumn leaves have got you thinking
Bm7 E7 Am
about the first time that you fell.
Bm7 E7 Am C/G
You didn't love the boy too much, no no,
F C/G Fm6 F G G7
you just loved the boy too well____ er-well
Verse 3:
(same as verse 1)
So you live from day to day
and you dream about tomorrow, oh.
And the hours go by like minutes and the shadows come to stay.
So ya take a little something to make them go away.
Chorus:
(same as above chorus)
And I could have done so many things, baby,
if I could only stop my mind
from wond'rin' what I left behind
and from worryin' bout this wasted time.
Ab C
Ooh, another love has come and gone.
Ab C
Ooh, and the years keep rushing on.
F Am7 Dm Am7
I remember what you told me before you went out on your own:
F Am7 Dm G7
sometimes to keep it together we got to leave it alone.
Chorus:
(same as above)
So you can get on with your search, baby,
and I can get on with mine.
And maybe someday we will find
Dm F G7 C Am7 F C/G
that it wasn't really wasted time.
Ab C Am7 F C/G
Ab Fm6 C

Intro: Dm7 (4bars)
G/D (4bars)

[Dm7] I got a black magic woman, I got a black magic
[Am7]woman. Yes, I
got a [Dm7]blac magic woman,
she's got me so blind I cant [Gm7]see
But
she's a [Dm7]black magic woman and she's
[A7]tryin' to make a devil out of
[Dm7]me.



[Dm7]Don't turn your back on me, baby.
Don't turn your back on me,
ba[Am7]by
Yes, don't turn your [Dm7]back on me, baby,
Don't mess around
with your [Gm7]tricks.
Don't turn your [Dm7]back on me, baby, cause
you
[A7]might just wake up my magic [Dm7]sticks
You got your spell on me,
baby.
You got your spell on me, ba[Am7]by.

Feaver

[Am] Never know how much I love you,
Never know how
much I care.
When you put your arms around me
I get a [E7]Fever that's so
hard to [Am]bear.



[N.C.]You give me Fever, [Am] when you kiss me
[F6]Fever when you hold me
[Am]tight
Fever - in the morning
Fever all [E7]through the [Am]night



Sun lights up the daytime,
Moon lights up the night.
I light up when
you call my name
And you know I'm gonna treat you right.



You give me Fever, when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever
- in the morning
Fever all through the night



[Am] Ev'rybody's got the Fever
That is something you all know
Fever
isn't such a new thing
[E7]Fever started long a-[Am]go



Romeo loved Juliet,
Juliet she felt the same.
When he pout his arms
around her, he said,
"Julie, baby, you're my
flame."
{column_break}
Thou givest Fever, when we kisseth
Fever when
thy flaming youth.
Fever - I'm a fire
Fever, yea I burn forsooth.



Captain Smith and Pocahantas
Had a very mad affair
When her Daddy tried
to kill him, she said,
"Daddy-o don't you dare."



He gives me Fever, with his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
Fever -
I'm his Missus
Oh Daddy won't you treat him right



Now you've listened to my story
Here's a point that I have made.
Chicks
were born to give you Fever
Be it Fahrenheit or Centigrade



They give you fever, when you kiss them
Fever if you live and
learn.
Fever - 'til you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely
way to burn
What a lovely way to burn

WORKING MAN

One of my favorite songs to play

-CPM-

Chords ( G, C, D, Dm)
Chorus


It's a working man I am,and I've been down under ground
An I swear to God-if I ever see the sun
Or for any length of time-I can hold it in my mind
I never again will go down under ground


At the age of sixteen years
Oh he quarrels with his peers
Who vowed-they'd never see another one
In the dark recess of the mine
Where you age before your time
And the coal dust lies heavy on your lungs


Repeat Chorus


At the age of sixty-four
Oh he'll greet you at the door
And he'll gently lead you by the arm
Through the dark recess of the mine
Oh he'll take you back in time
And he'll tell you of the hardships that were had

Repeat Chorus

I asked her for credit, she answered my nay
Such a custom
as yours I can get any day

(chorus)

I brought from my pocket, ten souvereigns bright
And the landladys eyes
opened wide with delight
She said I have whiskeys and wines of the
best
And the words that I told you were only in jest

I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done
And I'll ask that the
pardon their prodigal son
And if the caress me, as oft times before
I

Last Kiss
G-Em-C-D(7) (throughout)

CHORUS:

Oh, where, oh, where can my baby be
The Lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven so I got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world
We were out on a date in my daddy's car
We hadn't driven very far
There in the road straight up ahead
A car was stalled the engine was dead
I couldn't stop so I swerved to the right
I'll never forget the sound that night
The screaming tires the busting glass
The painful scream that I heard last
(CHORUS)
When I woke up the rain was pouring down
There were people standing all around
Something warm flowing through my eyes
But somehow I found my baby that night
I lifted her head she looked at me and said
Hold me darling just a little while
I held her close I kissed her our last kiss
I found the love that I knew I have missed
Well, now she's gone even though I hold her tight
I lost my love my life that night

Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say.
It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgement day.
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favor, son, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company."
(refrain)
Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog.
He said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack my dog."
I said, "Wait a minute, Chester. You know I'm a peaceful man."
He said, "That's okay, boy. Won't you feed him when you can?"
(refrain)
Get your Canonball now, to take me down the line.
My bag is sinking low, and I do believe it's time
To get back to Miss Fanny. You know she's the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.
(refrain)

WILLIE NELSON: BLUE EYES CRYING IN THE RAIN (by Fred Rose)

D / /
In the twilight glow, I see
A / /D / /
Blue eyes cryin' in the Rain/ /

When we kissed goodbye and parted

I/ knew we'd never meet a-gain

VERSE 1:
G / / / /
Love is like a dying ember;
D / /A /
Only memories re- main.
D / / / /
And/ thru the ages I'll re-member

Blue eyes cryin' in the rain.

VERSE 2:
G / / / /
Someday when we meet up yonder,
D / / /
We'll stroll hand in hand a- gain.
D / / / /
And/ in a land that knows no parting,
A / /D B/ D
Blue eyes crying in the rain.

Wish You Were Here
Pink Floyd

C D
So, so you think you can tell,

Am G
Heaven from Hell, blue skys from pain.

D C Am
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail, a smile from a veil,

G
Do you think you can tell?

C D
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts,

Am G D
Hot ashes for trees, hot air for a cool breeze, cold comfort for change,

C Am G
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

Em G Em G Em A Em A

C D
How I wish, how I wish you were here.

Am G D
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,

C
Running over the same old ground. What have we found?

Am G
The same old fears. Wish you were here!

CAN'T YOU SEE
Marshall Tucker Bad (Toy Caldwell)



Gonna take a freight train
Down at the station, Lord
Don't care where it goes
Gonna climb a mountain
The highest mountain
Jump off, nobody gonna know

D - - - / / C - - - / / G - - - / / D - - - / // (2x)

C: Can't you see, can't you see
What that woman, she been doing to me
Can't you see, can't you see
What that woman, she been doing to me

I'm gonna find me
A hole in the wall
I'm gonna crawl inside and die
Come a lady...
A mean old women now
Never told me goodbye

C: Can't you see, can't you see
What that woman, she been doing to me
Can't you see, can't you see
What that woman, she been doing to me

(Solo)

I'm gonna buy a ticket now
As far as I can
I ain't never comin' back
Grab me the southbound
All the way to Georgia now
'Til the train it run out of track

C: Can't you see, can't you see
What that woman, she been doing to me
Can't you see, can't you see
What that woman, she been doing to me

DRIFT AWAY
;
Williams

I: ( G - - - / / / / x4 //)

Day after day I'm more confused
I look for the light in the pouring rain
You know that's a game that I hate to lose
I'm feeling the pain, ain't it a shame

C - - - / / G - - - / / x4 / x4 / Am - - - / / C - - - / //

C: Give me the beat boys, to soothe my soul
I want to get lost in your rock 'n' roll
And drift away...
Give me the beat boys, to soothe my soul
I want to get lost in your rock 'n' roll
And drift away...

G - - - / / D - - - / / C - - - / / x6 // ( G - - - / //)

Beginning to think that I'm wasting time
Don't understand the things that I do
'Cause the world outside looks so unkind
Now I'm counting on you, to carry me through

C: Give me the beat boys, to soothe my soul
I want to get lost in your rock 'n' roll
And drift away...
Give me the beat boys, to soothe my soul
I want to get lost in your rock 'n' roll
And drift away...

B: When my mind is free, you know a melody can move me
When I'm feeling blue, the guitar comin' through to soothe me

Am - - - / / C - - - / / G - - - / / Am - - - / / C - - - / / D - - - / //

And thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know that I believe in your song
The rhythm, the rhyme, and harmony
You helped me along, makin' me strong

C: Give me the beat boys, to soothe my soul
I want to get lost in your rock 'n' roll
And drift away...
Give me the beat boys, to soothe my soul
I want to get lost in your rock 'n' roll
And drift away...

Living next door to Alice

She said I suppose you've heard..............About Alice...

A
When I rushed to the window and I looked the outside,
D
I could hardly believe my eyes.
E A E
The big limosine pulled slowly into Alice's driver...
A
I don't know why she's leaving and where she's going to go.
D
I guess she's got reasons, but I just don't want to know.
E A E
Just for 24 years I've been living next door to Alice......

A
24 years just waiting for a chance
D
to tell her how I fell and maybe get a second glance.
E E7 A E
Now, I've got to get used to not living next door to Alice...

A
We walk together, two kids in the park.
D E A E
Carved our initials deep in the bark........... me and Alice.

A
As she walks to the door and keep her hand high..
D
Just fo a moment, I caught her eyes.
E A E
As the big limosine pulled slowly, out of Alice's driver...

Refrain...(Use Riff#1 instead of last E )...

A
And Sally called back and ask how I felt.
D E A E
And she said I know how to help.........Get over Alice...

A
She said now Alice has gone but I'm still here...

You know I've been waiting 24 years....

Wish You Were Here (Waters, Gilmour)
------------------

C D
So, so you think you can tell,

Am G
Heaven from Hell, blue skys from pain.

D C Am
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail, a smile from a veil,

G
Do you think you can tell?


C D
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts,

Am G D
Hot ashes for trees, hot air for a cool breeze, cold comfort for change,

C Am G
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?


Em G Em G Em A Em A


C D
How I wish, how I wish you were here.

Am G D
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,

C
Running over the same old ground. What have we found?

Am G
The same old fears. Wish you were here!

Halleluja
Leonard Cohen

C G
Now I've heard there was a secret chord
C G
That David Played, and it pleased the Lord
F G C G
But you don't really care for music, do you?
C F G
It goes like this: the fourth, the fifth
Am F
The minor fall, the major lift
G E Am
The baffled king composing Halleluja
Am F Am F C G C
Halleluja, Halleluja, Halleluja, Hallelu-u-u-ja


G Em
Your faith was strong but you needed proof

G Em
You saw her bathing on the roof

C AM G
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you

G C D
She tied you To a kitchen chair

Em C D
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair

D Em
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

C Em C G-D-G
Halleluja, Halleluja, Halleluja, Halleluja





G Em
You say I took the name in vain

G Em
I don't even know the name

C AM G
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?

G C D
There's a blaze of light In every word

Em C D
It doesn't matter which you heard

The holy or the broken Hallelujah

I'll stand before the Lord of Song

With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

"Arms of an Angel"
Capo 1

C F x2 intro

Dm F
Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
C G
For the break that will make it ok
Dm F
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
C G
And it's hard at the end of the day
Dm F
I need some distraction, oh beautiful release
C G
Memories seep from my veins
Dm F
They may be empty and weightless, and maybe
C G
I'll find some peace tonight

C G
In the arms of an Angel, fly away from here
Dm C G
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
C G
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
Dm C G
You're in the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line, and everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting, you keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack
It don't make no difference, escaping one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees

In the arms of an Angel, far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
In the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here

Waltzing Matilda

Intro: A A A
D A
When I was a young man, I carried my pack.
E A
And I lived the free life, of a rover.
E D
From the Murray's green basin,
A
To the dusty outback,
E A
I waltzed my matilda all over.
E D A
Then in 1915, my country said "son"
E D
"It's time to stop rambling,"
A
"Cos there's work to be done."
D
So they gave me a tin hat,
A
And they gave me a gun,
E A
And they sent me away to the war.


D A
And the band played Waltzing Matilda,
D E
As we sailed away from the quay.
D
And amidst all the cheers,
A
And the shouts and the tears,
E A
We sailed off for Galipoli


D A
How well I remember that terrible day,
E A
when the blood stained the sand and the water.
E D
And how in that hell
A
that they called Souvla Bay
E A
We were butchered like lambs at the slaughter.
E D A
Johnny Turkey was ready, He'd primed himself well.
E D
He showered us with bullets,
A
And he rained us with shells.
D
And in five minutes flat,
A
he'd blown us all to hell.
E A
Nearly blew us right back to Australia.

D A
And the band played Waltzing Matilda,
D E
As we stopped to bury our slain.
D
And we buried ours
A
and the Turks buried theirs,
E A
And it started all over again.

D A
Now those who were living, Did their best to survive,
E A
In that mad world of guts, blood, and fire.
E D
And for seven long weeks,
A
I kept myself alive,
E A
As the corpses around me piled higher.
E D A
Then a big Turkish shell, Knocked me arse over tit.
E D
And when I awoke
A
in my hospital bed,
D
And saw what it had done,
A
Christ I wished I was dead.
E A
Never knew there were worse things than dying.

D A
And no more I'll go Waltzing Matilda,
D E
To the green bushes so far and near.
D
For to hang tent and pegs
A
A man needs two legs.
E A
No more Waltzing Matilda for me.

D A
So they collected the crippled, The wounded and maimed,
E A
And they sent us back home to Australia.
E D
The legless, the armless,
A
the blind and insane.
E A
Those proud wounded heroes of Souvla
E D A
And as our ship pulled into Circular Quay
E D
I looked at the place
A
where my legs used to be.
D
And thank Christ, there was nobody
A
waiting for me,
E A
To grieve and to mourn and to pity.

D A
And the band played Waltzing Matilda,
D E
As they carried us down the gangway.
D
But nobody cheered,
A
They just stood and stared,
E A
And they turned their faces away.

D A
And now every April, I sit on my porch,
E A
And I watch the parades pass before me.
E D
I see my old comrades,
A
How proudly they march.
E A
Reliving the dreams of past glory.
E D A
I see the old men, all twisted and torn.
E D
The forgotten heroes
A
of a forgotten war.
D
And the young people ask me,
A
What are they marching for?
E A
And I ask my self the same question.

D A
And the band plays Waltzing Matilda,
D E
And the old men still answer the call.
D
But year after year,
A
Their numbers get fewer,
E A
Someday no-one will march there at all.

A D
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
A E
Who'll come a waltzing matilda with me?

Outro: A A E A

Old Dogs, Children And Watermelon Wine
written and recorded by Tom T. Hall
G
How old do you think I am he said
C
I said well I didnít know
D7 C G
He said I turned 65 about 11 months ago
C Am
I was sitting in Miami pouring blended whisky down
C G Am D7 G
When this old grey black gentleman was cleaning up the lounge
G7 C Am
There wasn't any one around but this old man and me
D7 C D7 G
The guy who tended bar was watching ironsides on tv
G7 C Am
Uninvited he sat down and opened up his mind
C G Am D7 G
On old dogs and children and watermelon wine

G7 C Am
Have you ever had a drink of watermelon wine he asked
D7 C D7 G
He told me all about it though I didn't answer back
G7 C Am
Ain't but three things in life that's worth a solitary dime
C G Am D7 G
That's old dogs and children and watermelon wine
G7 C Am
He said women think about themselves when their men-folk aren't around
D7 C D7 G
And friends are hard to find when they discover that you're down
G7 C Am
He said I tried it all when I was young and in my natural prime
C G Am D7 G
Now it's old dogs and children and watermelon wine
G7 C Am
He said old dogs care about you even when you make mistakes
D7 C D7 G
God bless little children while they're still too young to hate
G7 C Am
As he moved away I got my pen and copied down that line
C G Am D7 G
On old dogs and children and watermelon wine

G7 C Am
I had to catch a plane up to Atlanta the next day
D7 C D7 G
As I left for my room I saw him picking up my change
G7 C Am
That night I dreamed in peaceful sleep of shady summer times
C G Am D7 G
Of old dogs and children and watermelon wine

Country Bumpkin
recorded by Cal Smith
written by Don Wayne

C
He walked up to the bar and parked his
C7 F C
Lanky frame upon a tall barstool
G7
And with a long soft southern drawl said
C
I'll just have a glass of anything that's cool


A barroom girl with hard and knowing eyes
C7 F C
Slowly looked him up and down
G7
And she thought I wonder how on earth
C
That country bumpkin found his way to town

C7 F
And she said hello country bumpkin
G7 C
How's the frost out on the pumpkin
C7 F
I've seen some sights but man you're something
G7 C
Where'd you come from country bumpkin


It was just a short year later in a bed
C7 F C
Of joy-filled tears yet death-like pain
G7
Into this wondrous world of many wonders
C
One more wonder came


That same woman's face was wrapped up
C7 F C
In a raptured look of love and tenderness
G7
As she marveled at the soft and warm
C
And cuddly boy child feeding at her breast

F
And she said hello country bumpkin
G7 C
Fresh as frost out on the pumpkin
C7 F
I've seen some sights but babe you're something
G7 C
Mama loves her country bumpkin


Forty years of hard work later
C7 F C
In a simple quiet and peaceful country place
G7
The heavy hand of time had not erased
C
The raptured wonder from the woman's face


She was lying on her death bed
C7 F C
Knowing fully well her race was nearly run
G7
But she softly smiled and looked into
C
The sad eyes of her husband and her son

F
And she said so long country bumpkin
G7 C
The frost is gone now from the pumpkin
C7 F
I've seen some sights and life's been something
G7 C
See you later country bumpkin
