        Ok this is one of my favourite AC/DC tracks. It's easy
        and fun to play.
        The intro arrpeggios are played over the chords A and D.

             A            D
        E|---------------------------|
        B|----------8------------7---|
        B|--------9------------7-----|  2 times
        D|------7------------7-------|
        A|---0------------5----------|
        E|---------------------------|

        The main riff is rock and roll itself. Perhaps one of the
        most used rock rythyms going - it still sounds fresh on this
        album  - even in 1994 !!

                A
        E|---------------------------------------|
        B|------3--3-po-2-----3-3-po-2-----------|
        G|------2--2----2-----2-2----2-----------|
        D|------4 -4-po-2-----4-4-po-2-----------|
        A|---0--0--0----0--0--0-0----0--3-4-0----|
        E|---------------------------------------|

         Try experimenting with this rythym until you get the
         right feel. IT IS FUN !!!

lyrics

[Verse]
                y' say that that you play too loud
                well baby that's tough
                y'say that you got too much
                can't get enough
                tell you that you look a fool
                baby I'm a fool for you
                say that you're my disease
                well, shake your stuff

[Chorus]
                        G5      D/F#     A5
                It's a Rock and Roll damnation
                G5       D/F##     A5
                ma's own whipping boy
                G5       D/F#     A5
                rock and roll damnation
                D5
                take a chance
                E5
                while you still got a choice

[Verse 2]
                you say that you want respect
                honey grow up
                everything that you've done for me
                well thanks a lot
                c'mon, get up off your bended knees
                y'can , set your mind at ease
                my temperature's running hot
                and I've been waiting all night for a bite of what
                        you've got,and

[Chorus]
        Intro section over the lyrics:

        just a boy with a toy  ( ??? )
        come on and take your choice
        cos you're way out of reach
        living in your sin you gotta practise what you preach

[Chorus]
                        G5      D/F#     A5
                It's a Rock and Roll damnation
                G5       D/F##     A5
                ma's own whipping boy
                G5       D/F#     A5
                rock and roll damnation
                G5  ( not D this time )
                take a chance
                D5
                while you still got a choice

       Back to the main riff for the solo which I can't get to
       sound right - but I know that just as the vocals come
       back in the solo is playing something like:

       E|-----------17------------|
       B|---------------------17--|
       G|---16b-16b---16b-16b-----|   repeatedly.
       D|-------------------------|
       A|-------------------------|
       E|-------------------------|

       try messing around with this. It's easier to stumble across
       by playing than writing it down !!

       Finally, the chords G and D/F# are the standard AC/DC stuff

           G      D/F#     note no major or minor tonalities
       E|---x------x--|
       B|---3------3--|
       G|---0------2--|
       D|---0------0--|
       A|---x------0--|
       E|---3------2--|

       I hope you enjoy it !!!

       Rock and Rooooolllllllllllllllllllll !!!
