[E]  I can't get no

[E]  I can't get no
[A]  satisfaction
And I try[E], and I try[B7],
and I try[E], and I try[A].

(With riff)
I can't g[E]et no   [D]
I ca[A]n't g[E]et no   [D]

When I'[A]m dr[E]iving in my c[D]ar
And th[A]e m[E]an comes on the r[D]adi[A]o
And he's t[E]ellin' me more and m[D]ore
about so[A]me [E]useless inform[D]ation
Supp[A]osed to f[E]ire my imagin[D]ation
I c[A]an't g[E]et no     [D]
Oh [A]no n[E]o
hey hey h[E]ey      [D]
thats wh[A]at I s[E]ay    [D]   [A]


When I'm watch[E]ing my t.[D}.
An[A] a m[E]an comes on and te[D]lls me

But he[A] ca[E]nt' be a man cuz he do[D]esn't smo[A]ke
The sa[E]me cigarettes as m[D]e

When I'm rid[E]ing 'round the wo[D]rld

And Im try[E]ing to meet some gi[D]rl
Who te[A]lls me "Ba[E]by better come back may[D]be next we[A]ek,
Cos you s[E]ee I'm on a lo[D]sin' str[A]eak"
I can't g[E]et no,   [D]
n[A]o no n[E]o.
Hey hey h[E]ey   [D]

I[A] can't g[E]et no [D]

No S[A]atisfac[E]tion [D]
No S[A]atisfac[E]tion [D]
No S[A]atisfac[E]tion [D]
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!
