Subject: CRD: It's Only Rock and Roll by The Rolling Stones
It's Only Rock 'N' Roll - The Rolling Stones (1974)
[E]If I could stick my pen in my heart
I would spill it all over the stage
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya,
Would you think the boy is strange?
Ain't he [A]str[G]ang[E]e?
[E]If I could win ya, If I could sing ya
a love song so divine
would it be enough for your cheating heart
if I broke down and cried?
If I [A]cr[G]ie[E]d?
CHORUS
I said [A]I know... it's only rock and roll, but I [E]like it
[A]I know... it's only rock and roll,
but I [E]like it, [D]like it, [A]yes I [E]do
Oh well [A]I like it
I [E]like it
I [A]like it
I said [D]can't you [A]see
that [D]this old [A]boy has been a-[E]lonely
[E]If I could stick a knife in my heart
Suicide right on the stage
Would it be enough for your teenage lust
Would it help to ease the pain?
Ease your [A]br[G]ai[E]n?
[E]If I could dig down deep in my heart
Feelings would flood on the page
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya,
Would you think the boy's insane?
He's [A]in[G]sa[E]ne
CHORUS, repeating to fade
