(With riff)
 ED
I can't get no   
 AED
I can't get no   

 AED
When I'm driving in my car
 AEDA
And the man comes on the radio
 ED
And he's tellin' me more and more
 AED
about some useless information
 AED
Supposed to fire my imagination
 AED
I can't get no     
tacet
 AE
Oh no no
 ED

 AEDA
thats what I say       

(Chorus)

When I'm watching my t.[D}.
 AED
An a man comes on and tells me
 AED
 How white my shirts could be
 AEDA
But he cant' be a man cuz he doesn't smoke
 ED
The same cigarettes as me  
 AE
 I cant get no,  {D]
 A
no no no.

(Chorus)

 ED
When I'm riding 'round the world
 AEDA
And I'm doing this and I'm signing that
 ED
And Im trying to meet some girl
 AEDA
Who tells me "Baby better come back maybe next week,
 EDA
Cos you see I'm on a losin' streak"
 ED
I can't get no,   
 AE
no no no.
 ED
Hey hey hey   

 AED
I can't get no 
 AED
I can't get no 
 AED
No Satisfaction 
 AED
No Satisfaction 
 AED
No Satisfaction 

The E D A chords timing should match what is being played by the guitar riff. The first 4 notes (B,B,B,C#) of the riff are played over the E chord. The next 3 notes (D, D, D) of the riff are played over D, and the last note of the riff (C#) is played over the A chord.

This same chord structure is maintained over all of the verses and continues up to the chorus.

Happy picking!
