No Expectations  Rolling Stones

*Tune the guitar down a half step if you want, but I've always played it this way to get Keith's open chord feel with the rhythm.

*Also, If you listen to the record you'll hear that the vocals start off with the A chord(Not the E) jumping in and turning it around a little!

[E]      [E]      [A]      [E]      [A]     [E]     [A]      [E]     [C]    [E]     [Ab]    [A]     [E]     [E]            

[A]Take me to the sta[E]tion
and p[A]ut me on a tra[E]in
I've g[A]ot no expect[E]ation
to p[Db/D]ass through [Ab/A]here ag[Open/E]ain.      E    A  E    A   E   E

O[A]nce I was a r[E]ich man and
[A]Now I am so p[E]oor
But n[A]ever in my sw[E]eet short life
Have[C#/D] I felt like[Ab/A] this b[D#/E]efore      E      A  E      E   A    E   E
You heart is like a diamond
You throw your pearls at swine
And [A]as I watch you lea[E]ving me
You [C#/D]pack my [Ab/A]peace o[D#/E]f mind         E      A  E      E   A    E   E

Our l[A]ove was like the wa[E]ter
That spl[A]ashes on a s[E]tone
Our l[A]ove is like our m[E]usic
Its [C#/D]here, and [Ab/A]then its g[E]one        E      A  E      E   A    E   E
So t[A]ake me to the ai[E]rport
