Forgot my six-string Razor, hit the sky, half-way to Memphis 'fore I realized
D/F#            G         E/G#           A  Bm               A                 G =/F#  x7
Well I rang the information, my axe was cold, they said she rides the train to Oreoles

            A                        D                    A                    D
Now it's a mighty long way down the dusty trail, and the sun burns hot on the cold steel rails

Well I got to Oreoles y'know, it took a month, and there was my guitar, electric junk
D/F#             G          E/G#                A  Bm
Some spade said rock'n'rollers, you're all the same,
                A              G =/F#
Man that's your instrument, I felt so ashamed

            A                    D                         A                     D
Now it's a mighty long way down rock'n'roll, through the Bradford cities and the Oreoles
         A                            D               /G-/F#-/E-/D-/C#  -  /B    -   /A-/G

Yeah it's a mighty long way down rock'n'roll, from the Liverpool docks to the Hollywood Bowl
          A                            D                /G-/F#-/E-/D-/C#  -  /B    -   /A-/G
And you climb up the mountains 'n you fall down the holes,           all the way from Memphis
             A                    D                    A                     D
Yeah it's a mighty long way down rock'n'roll, as your name gets hot so your heart grows cold
         A                             D           /G-/F#-/E-/D-/C#  -  /B    -   /A-/G
And you gotta stay young man, you can never be old,             all the way from Memphis
