 [C#5] [A5] [B5]    [E5] [F#5] [G5] [G#5]


 Well, we were just another band out of boston
On the road to try to make ends meet
Playin' all the bars, sleepin in our cars
And we practiced right on out in the street [PLAY FILL 1]
No, we didnt have much money
We barely made enough to survive
But when we got up on stage and got ready to play
People came alive. [PLAY FILL 2]

[C#5]
Rock and roll band
    [A5]      [C#5]
Everybodys waitin

Gettin crazy
 [A5]   [B5]
Anticipating
[E5]    [F#5]    [F#5][G5][G#5]
love and music
[A5]  [B5]  [E5]                       [E5]
Play, play, play, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Dancin in the streets of hyannis
We were getting pretty good at the game
People stood in line and didnt seem to mind
You know everybody knew our name [PLAY FILL 1]
Livin on rock-n-roll music
Never worry bout the things we were missing
When we got up on the stage and got ready to play
Everybodyd listen. [PLAY FILL 2]

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Playin for a week in rhode island
A man came to the stage one night
He smoked a big cigar
Drove a cadillac car
And said, boys, I think this bands outta-sight[PLAY FILL 1]
Sign a record company contract
You know Ive got great expectations
When I hear you on the car radio
Youre goin to be a sensation![PLAY FILL 2]

[REPEAT CHORUS]

I'll post the solo later.  Its getting late.

Enjoy!!!
