TITLE: Rock and Roll Band
Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 2]

Well, we were just another band out of Boston
On the road to try to make ends meet
Playing all the bars, sleeping in our cars
And we practiced right on out in the street
No, we didn't have much money
We barely made enough to survive
But when we got up on stage and got ready to play
People came alive

/ D - G - / / / / / / D - E - / G - A - /

Rock and roll band, everybody's waiting
Getting crazy, anticipating
Love and music
Play, play, play, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

/ Bm - G A / / D - E - / G A D - / 

Dancing in the streets of Hyannis
We were getting pretty good at the game
People stood in line and didn't seem to mind
You know, everybody knew our name
Living on rock 'n' roll music
Never worried 'bout the things we were missing
When we got up on stage and got ready to play
Everybody'd listen


Playing for a week in Rhode Island
A man came to the stage one night
He smoked a big cigar and drove a Cadillac car
And said, "Boys, I think this band's outa sight
Sign a record company contract
You know, I've got great expectations
When I hear you on the car radio
You're gonna be a sensation"
