Velvet Underground - Rock & Roll Runaways tab

From: dmsinge@erenj.com (Dave Singer)
Subject: CRD/TAB Rock and Roll-Runaways

This is the same song originally done by the Velvet Underground.
It was done on the Runaways(Joan Jetts' first band) first release
and it features a real cool riff.  The song is in 4/4 and we used
to start it by having the drummer play a steady beat on the cow
bell.  Here is our arrangement:

Two TV sets and two Cadillac cars well they don't

She turned on that L.A. station couldn't believe what she 
heard at all.
She started dancin' to that fine fine music, her life was
saved by rock and roll.
