Tenacious D – The Ballad Of Hollywood Jack chords

Chords
Transpose:
This is a modified version of DeX3's chord write up. 95% of
the work is his, I just tweaked a couple of chords and added
a walkdown which sounds closer to the real thing to my ear.

INTRO: 2x: Em C D/F
Em C D/FThis is the ballad of Hollywood Jack and the Rage Cage
Em C D/FNothing could stop them when Jables and Rage hit the stage
Em C D/FAnd Hollywood Jack hit the big time and when to make movies
Em C D/FRage Kage was left far behind in the dust of his dreams
Em D/F G C* B7And he grumbled and growled and watched Hollywood Jack on Jay Leno
Em D/F G C* B7He bellowed and said he'd be nothing without help from Kage
Em D/F G C* B7He burned up the photos of Jables and Kage doing mushrooms
Em D/F G C* B7"Fuck him, I don't need no Hollywood Jack anyway"
Em C D/FSo Hollywood Jack lived up high on a hill in a bubble
Em C D/FAnd Rage Kage lived deep in the broiling valley below
Em CYes, the Rage Kage bubbled with rage
D/FHe looked at the ground
B7And he looked on the stage
EmThe lava was throwing
C D/F B7And boiling inside the old Kage
Em D/F G C* B7As Hollywood Jack climbed the ladder of stardom before him
Em D/F G C* B7He watched as his indie credentials flew right out the door
Em D/F G C* B7He'd make millions and then he'd go out and he'd make even more millions
Em D/F G C* B7He'd screen KG's calls and snort coke of the ass of a whore
EmNo one respected him
CThey just rejected him
G D/FNo one would represent Kage
Em CLeft on the streets of his dreams
D/F B7he would cry, and he'd rage for the stage
Ahahaaa FLUTE SOLO: 4x: Em C D/F B7
Em C D/FThen Hollywood Jack got a message that Kage was in trouble
Em C D/FThey sent Kage away cause he had gone completely insane
Em C D/FSo Hollywood Jack jumped upon a jetplane and flew all that night through the rain
Em C D/FTo be with his friend to see what remained of his brain
Em D/F G C* B7Then Hollywood Jack told the doctors: "You got to retrieve him!"
Em D/F G C* B7You've got the technology, use the techniques of your trade
Em D/F G C* B7He grabbed their lapels and he screamed "BY GOD YOU MUST SAVE HIM!"
Em D/F G C* B7Because Rage Kage and I; can't you see that were one and the same!
Aaaah!
EmRAGE KAGE!
COH RAGE KAGE!
G D/FThere'd be magic inside that old name
EmAnd you know,
Cyes you know
G D/FWhen you're going completely insane
EmOh Rage Kage!
COh Rage Kage!
G D/FOh the lion will roar once again
EmAnd you know
CYes you know
G B7When you're going completely insane
Em D/F G C B7Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Em D/F G C B7Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Em D/F G C B7Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Em D/F G C B7Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Em D/F G C B7Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Em D/F G C B7Hollywood Jack and the Rage Kage were out once again.
