The Kickstand Song
Darren Hanlon

The intro of this song is not really that hard; it is just that there are a couple of 
chords in it that you might not know off the top of your head

Capo 3rd fret

G A/C# D Dmaj7 G Bm 
D A7sus D A
(note: between the G and the Bm, there might be some kind of F# chord, but i'm not sure)

   G  Gm D   A  G                     
or Bm
Up until now my ideas have been latent
    Bm      A/C#       D                 Bm  A
The cycling world will never be the same
    G    Gm    D     A       G              
    F# or Bm
But come first light I'll be taking out a patent
    Bm   A    D
And from that day
     Bm      A           G      D      Em
If a bike be found lying on the ground again
           A       Bm G
I'm not to blame

     D   Bm    A               Em          A
What joy it'll bring, piece of metal and a spring
        Bm                         G
Bolted down by the back wheel, activated by the heel
     D   Bm    A               Em          A
What joy it'll bring, piece of metal and a spring

     G            A                      D           Em
What chicken laid the egg from whence inside an idea hatches?
     G            A                       D                 Em
From prototype to production lines to the first one hundred batches
G             F#                 Em               A
I will do for parking bikes what anchors did for sailing
     D   Bm    A               Em    A     D    Dsus D A D
What joy it'll bring, piece of metal and a spring

A Asus A D A

        G      Gm       D        A           
                      F#
There's handle bars for steering and there's tire tread for traction
  Bm   A/C#     D           Em             
 A
A tiny bell for friends you pass and greet
     G   Gm   D   A     G                 F#
But when they add my ingenious contraption
Bm     A/C# D
Mouths will fall
     Bm           A        G        D        Em
And eyebrows will rise and staring eyes will meet
         A         Bm G
The bike complete

     D   Bm    A                Em         A
What joy it'll bring, piece of metal and a spring
       Bm                      G
Bolted down by the back wheel, activated by the heel
     D   Bm    A               Em          A
What joy it'll bring, piece of metal and a spring

            G           A              D              Em
There'll be articles in newspapers and dinners at the town hall
   G                   A                   D                Em
My first check's for a thousand bucks, now that's one spicy meatball
    G                F#             Em               A
But all the fame and fortune in the world will not compare
       D    Bm   A                Em          
   A
To the joy it'll bring, piece of metal and a spring
G        F  D
Spring

    G                A                D                   Em
Now bikes around the world can stand alone without their owners
    G               A          D                      Em
And I can get some cash on the side but that's just a bonus
      G                F#            Em                A
When underneath their helmets I will see their smiling faces
     D   Bm    A               Em    A     D
What joy it'll bring, piece of metal and a spring
         G    Gm     D       Bm A 
Gm D
Piece of metal and a spring


Easy song once you get going.  Have fun and keep strings tuned.
