This might just be the greatest dumb garage-rock song ever written.

Sometimes you hear people talk about 'believing in rock n' roll'.  You
have to beleive in something to sing this song with a straight face.  I
prefer to sing it with an adolescent snarl.

recorded by The Flamin' Groovies, 1976

|:A  Bm  |G  Bm  |A  Bm  |G  Bm  :|

|:A      |G      |D      |A      :|

Bm      A      D  Dsus D
I will find a way
    Bm     A        D  Dsus D
To get to you some day.
        G             A              D    Dsus D
Oh, but I, babe, I'm so afraid I'll fall, yeah.
     G         A       Bm    A
Now can't you hear me call?

A    Bm     G       Bm      A    Bm
Shake some action's what I need
           G       Bm       A    Bm
To let me bust out at full speed.
      G          Bm      A    G
I'm sure that's all you need
To make it all right.

|A    |G   |D    |A    |

It's taken me so long
To get where I belong
Oh, but, oh, please don't send me back that way, yeah.
For I will make you pay.


(guitar solo over:

|:Bm    |G    |D    |A    |Bm    |G    |D    |A   :|

|:A     |G    |D    |A    :|

If you don't dig what I say
Then I will go away.
And I won't come back this again. No.
'Cause I don't need a friend.


(guitar solo again)

There's a good way to intellectualize rock and roll, and a bad way. You seem to have chosen the latter.

Good submission, though. :)
