Song: Roland The Roadie And Gertrude The Groupie


Intro


Now Roland the roadie was only a toadie,

Who set up the lights and the mics for the shows

And Gertrude the groupie was a rock and roll fan,

Who stood by the stage door in the rains and the snows.


First Verse


G#                    C#
Roland the roadie met Gertrude the groupie
C#   G#                     D#
At a rock concert back in Bayonne
D# G#
He tried to seduce her,
C#                         D#                     G#
Said he'd introduce her to all of the Beatles and Stones


Second Verse


G#                       C#
So Roland the roadie got Gertrude the groupie
C# G#                   D#
A  seat in the balcony above
D#  G#                        C#
And Gertrude the groupie felt grateful and groovy
C# D#                      G#
But Roland the roadie felt love


Chorus


G#  D#
And some folks loves ham hocks
D#  C#
And some folks loves pork chops
C#  G#                        D#
And some folks love vegetable soup
D#                          C#
But Roland the roadie loves Gertrude the groupie, 

But Gertrude the groupie loves groups


Third Verse


G#                               C#
She stood up and screamed as the amber spot gleamed
C#     G#                   D#
On her heroes so skinny and tall
D#         G#
With their eyelids so droopy, 
G# C#            D#                                    G#
And Gertrude the groupie and she was in love with them all


Fourth Verse


G#                     C#
Roland the roadie told Gertrude the groupie
C# G#                   D#
To wait and he'd be her man
G#                        C#
But while he dreamed of a rose covered home
C#      D#                        G#
She was out with the group in the van


Break


C#        G#
Hey Gertie, Gertie, 
G#                                                  B
Come on babe, come on out of there....I know you're in there...
B                         G#                  B  G#               A
The whole trailer's moving baby....What about me....Gertie... Oh, Gertie?


Fifth Verse


A                        D
Now Roland the roadie is back on the road, 
D   A                       E
His heart has been broken again
E   A                          D
And Gertrude the groupie waits out in the cold 
D       E                       A
For the very next group to come in


Chorus


A   E
And some folks loves ham hocks 
E   D
And some folks loves pork chops 
D   A                          E
And some folks loves vegetable soup
E   B                       D
And Roland the roadie loves Gertrude the groupie, 
D   C#           B             A
But Gertrude the groupie loves groups
    A          A          A
....groups.....groups.....groups.....
