Sympathy for the Devil  Rolling Stones

Pl[E]ease allow me to intro[D]duce myself, I'm a [A]man of wealth and [E]taste
[E]I've been around for [D]long long years, I've st[A]olen many a man's soul and [E]faith
[E]I was around when J[D]esus Christ had his m[A]oments of doubt and p[E]ain
[E]I made damn sure that [D]Pilate washed his [A]hands and sealed his [E]fate

Pl[B]eased to meet you, hope you guess my [E]name
But what's [B]puzzling you is the n[D]ature [A]of my [E]game

I stuck around St. Petersburg when I saw it was time for a change
I killed the Tzar and his ministers, Anastasia screamed out in vain
I rode a tank, held a general's rank, when the blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank

I watched with glee while your kings and queens fought for ten decades for the gods they made
I shouted out 'Who killed the Kennedys?', when after all it was you and me
So let me please introduce myself, I am a man of wealth and taste
And I lay traps for troubadours, who get killed before they reach Bombay

Just as every cop is a criminal, and all the sinners, saints
As heads is tails, just call me Lucifer, 'cause I'm in need of some restraint
So if you meet me have some courtesy, have some sympathy and some taste
Use all of your well-learned politeness, or I'll lay your soul to waste

I agree Monkey. You should click on the correct song link and add the chords above the rest of the song. It is easy!
