Chords in (parentheses) are optional‚??just slight variations with muting on the
regular chord that you only need if you‚??re being a perfectionist. Sound-wise, it
shouldn‚??t make much of a difference.

It‚??s[Emaj7] pleasure t[E6sus4]o try ‚??em, i[Cmaj7/F]t‚??s troub[F]le to keep ‚?[A/D]?em.
‚??Cause it seem[Am]s like you‚?[Em7sus2]?ve got- - -ta g[A]ive up
Such a [Em7sus2]piece of your [Am7]soul when you [Em]give up the [F#m]chase.
Feeling it hot [Dsus2] and [D]cold, you‚??re in roc[Bm]k ‚??n‚?? roll,

It‚??s the na- - ture of the race.
[Bm/A] [A] It‚??s th[Dsus2]e un- - know[D]n child, so sweet an[Bm]d wild,

[Bm7/E]rock ‚??n‚?? r[A]oll man[E/A] ve-r[A]y long,
Or [Dsus2]count on your [Bm7]plans with a
[Bm7/E]rock ‚??n‚?? r[A]oll man[E/A] ve-r[A]y long,
Com-[Dsus2]pete with the [Bm7]fans for your
