Intro Riff

 

G                                          D

    Day after day I'm more confused

G                                                        D

     So I look for the light in the pouring rain

G                                                           D

     You know that's a game that I hate to lose

Em                               G

       I'm feelin' the strain, ain't it a shame

 

Chorus:

       D

Oh, give me the beat, boys, to soothe my soul

    A                                                        G

I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

        D

Oh, give me the beat, boys, to soothe my soul

   A                                                          G

I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

 

Transition:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

 

G                                                    D

   Beginning to think that I'm wastin' time

G                                                 D

   I don't understand the things I do

G                                              D

    The world outside looks so unkind

Em                               G

      I'm countin' on you   to carry me through

 

Chorus

Em

And when my mind is free

G                                    D

You know a melody can move me

Em

     And when I'm feelin' blue

G                                                A

    The guitar's comin' through to soothe me

G                                                           D

     Thanks for the joy that you've given me

G                                                          D

     I want you to know I believe in your song

G                                                 D

     Rhythm and rhyme and harmony

Em                             G

      You help me along   makin' me strong

 

End Chorus (repeat 4x)

       D

Oh, give me the beat, boys, to soothe my soul

    A                                                        G (x2)

I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

 

End on D
