About this tab version
As my parents and teachers are quick to point out, I'm not a particularly effective listener. As such, I'm pretty sure the chord progression through the line "It's the only life for Johnny Johnny, Johnny Kool" is wrong, and I would really appreciate it if someone had a better idea of how that part should go and could correct me. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming Is this strumming pattern correct? Yes No

[Verse]
Em
I had one cup of coffee and a cigarette
Em
Then I rolled out of bed with my shirt soaking wet
Am
If I was gonna get movin', now was the time
Em
So I packed up my bags and my Gretsch '59

[Pre-Chorus]
E
It's a tough life, love
F
But when push comes to shove
Dm       E             Am
It's the only life for Johnny Johnny, Johnny Kool
Am                       G 
Played his guitar and he sang like a fool
Dm
Don't let the big boys grind you down

[Chorus]
Am
Johnny Johnny, Johnny Kool
                    E
He was a rebel that broke all the rules
F        C          A#      E
Everyone can't stop talkin' about
Am
The legend of Johnny Kool

[Verse]
Em
It was darker than black, not a star in the sky
Em
So I revved on the engine and let that Mercury fly
Am
With the wind blowin' by at a 105
Em
It gave me a thrill just bein' alive

[Pre-Chorus]
E
It's a tough life, love
F
But when push comes to shove
Dm       E             Am
It's the only life for Johnny Johnny, Johnny Kool
Am                       G 
Played his guitar and he sang like a fool
Dm
Don't let the big boys grind you down

[Chorus]
Am
Johnny Johnny, Johnny Kool
                    E
He was a rebel that broke all the rules
F        C          A#      E
Everyone can't stop talkin' about
Am
The legend of Johnny Kool

[Verse]
Em
Rumor had it now this cat had it all
Em
He was loud, he was wild, and he sure rocked the hall
Em
Some guy grabbed my arm and I jumped on the stage
Em
And I was rockin' with a guy who was twice my age

[Pre-Chorus]
E
It's a tough life, love
F
But when push comes to shove
Dm       E             Am
It's the only life for Johnny Johnny, Johnny Kool
Am                       G 
Played his guitar and he sang like a fool
Dm
Don't let the big boys grind you down

[Chorus]
Am
Johnny Johnny, Johnny Kool
                    E
He was a rebel that broke all the rules
F        C          A#      E
Everyone can't stop talkin' about
Am
The legend of Johnny Kool
