#1.
D                     C
I came into town as a man of renown..
  G                     D
a writer of songs about freedom and joy.
D                          C
A hall had been rented and I was presented..
       G                     D               C G D
as the kind of a singer that all could enjoy.
D                                C
As I climbed up the stair to the stage that was there,
       G                     D     
it was obvious something was missing.
D                              C
I could tell by the vibes they wouldn't be bribed..
     Em7            G       A7sus4  A   A7   
they weren't in the mood to listen......they yelled out..

CHORUS:
D         C                   Em7           F#m7  
Play me a rock and roll song..don't play me songs about 
G           A7
freedom and joy.
D         C                      G             A          D
Play me a rock and roll song..or don't play me no song at all.

#2.
D                              C
I played them some songs about peace and contentment,
    G                          D
and things that I've come to believe in.
D                        C
When I was through, to a chorus of 'boos,'
     Em7               G              A   A7sus4 A7
Some track star yelled thank God he's leaving.

CHORUS:
A            D         C 
Now, someone play me a rock and roll song..
     Em7       F#m7           G           A7
I've had it to here with your flowers and beads.
D         C                      G             A          D
Play me a rock and roll song..or don't play me no song at all.

#3.
D                       C
Well, if I played you a rock and roll song..
    Em7        F#m7           G          A7
it wouldn't be fair, cause my head isn't there.
         D                   C
So, I'll leave you with your rock and roll songs..
    Em7         A7          D
and make my way back to the country.

#4.
D                       C
Still I hear, play me a rock and roll song..
Em7              F#m7       G               A   A7
I don't care for music that I don't want to hear.
D         C                     Em7        
Play me a rock and roll song..I should have stayed 
F#m7        G           A    A7
home with a big case of beer.
D         C                      Em7                  
Play me a rock and roll song..or don't play me 
A7         D    
no song at all.
