More Rock 'n' Roll  Ruarri Joseph

This is my favourite song from Ruarri Joseph's debut album 'Tales of Grime
and Grit'. It is also deliciously simple, so it is easy to master!.

Intro: C C6 C C C6 C
Verse (1):
[C]I know there's a party out there,
Somewhere for [F]crashers and burners to let down their hair,
The [G]red eye reduction is failing production,
Ther[C]e's smoke shadows everywhere.
I co[C]uld go along for a while,
And talk to my [F]friends and their friends and their friends and that smile,
It's [G]not that I'm better, or cooler, or clever,
In fa[C]ct I'm a geek without [C7]style.
The [F]ashtrays are empty, there's shandies aplenty,
I [G]wish I was more rock and [Am]roll.
But my [G]eyes are adrift as my mind wanders off,
Into vi[F]sions of blankets and [C]coal.
The s[F]un sets for reasons it's tired and it's pleasing itsel[G]f,
What an ideal l[Am]ife.
I may [G]look the part but I know in my heart,
That I'd [F]rather be home with the [C]wife.
Verse (2):
The [C]girls hang on necks of the boys,
The boys act all [F]coy with their beer and their cigarettes of joy,
It [G]takes me way back to a time when I'd stay when I'm young,
And that was just [C]yesterday.
There's [C]nothing wrong with the affair,
It's just that my [F]hair is all tangled in need of repair,
I m[G]ay get some glasses and sell backstage passes
To t[C]hose who can deal with the n[C7]oise.
[C]La la la lai la l[F]ai, la la lai lai la l[C]ai,
La la la lai la [G]lai, la la lai lai la l[C]ai.
La la la lai la [F]lai, la la lai lai la l[G]ai,
La la la lai la [Am]lai,
Oh I m[G]ay look the part but I know in my heart
That I'd [F]rather be home with the [C]wife.
La la la lai lai l[F]ai, la la lai, la la lai lai, la la la lai l[G]ai,
La la lai lai lai [Am]lai,
Oh I [G]may look the part but I know in my heart
That I'd r[F]ather be home with the wi[C]fe. x3
