#1.
        C         G                           D        G
And the sign said long haired, freaky people, need not apply.
      D                 A                  G                  A
So, I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why?
   Bm                    G                      Bm
He said, you look like a fine, upstanding young man, I think 
       G
you`ll do.
      D                        A                  G              A
So, I took off my hat..I said, imagine that..huh, me, workin for you.

CHORUS:
D           C                  D                
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign, blocking out the scenery,
G
breaking my mind.
D                 A                        C         D D7sus
Do this, don`t do that..can`t you read the si....gn?

#2.
        C                  G                   D                G
And the sign said, anybody caught trespassing, would be shot on sight.
      D                         A                         G
So, I jumped on the fence and I yelled at the house..hey, what gives 
        A
you the right?..
   Bm                G                  Bm                 G
to put up a fence to keep me out..or to keep mother nature in?
   D                  A                      G
If God was here, He`d tell you to your face, Man, you`re some 
      A
kinda sinner.

CHORUS:
D           C                  D                
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign, blocking out the scenery,
G
breaking my mind.
D                 A                        C       D
Do this, don`t do that..can`t you read the si...gn?

BRIDGE:
     A
Now, hey you, mister, can`t you read?
       G                       D
You`ve got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat.
A                                        Bm            
You can`t even watch, no, you can`t eat..you ain`t supposed 
   D
to be here.
C             G                        D
Sign said you got to have a membership card to 
      G
get inside..unnh!

#3.
D       C          G                       D                  G
And the sign said, everybody welcome, come in, kneel down and pray.
              D                              A         
But when they passed around the plate at the end of it all,
G                        A 
I didn`t have a penny to pay.
      Bm                 G           Bm                    G
So, I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own little sign.
        D                   A 
I said, thank you Lord, for thinking about me..
    G               A
I`m alive and doing fine.

CHORUS:
D           C                  D                
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign, blocking out the scenery,
G
breaking my mind.
D                 A                        C       D
Do this, don`t do that..can`t you read the si...gn?

OUTRO:
D           C
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign..
D          C
Sign, sign..(Fade.)


A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
