Rocket 88 chords
Ike Turner / Jackie Benston (Ike Turner 1951) 1st rock & roll song (later cover by Bill Haley)

C7 F C G7 F C  C7

             C          C7
You may have heard of jalopies,
              C          C7
you heard the noise they make;
    C                      C7       C
let me introduce you to my Rocket 88.
Yes it s great, just won't wait,
C                  C7       C
everybody likes my Rocket  88.
Baby, we ll ride in style,
F           C
moving all along.

C7 F C G7 F C  C7

C7                 C         C7
V-8 motor and this modern design,
                           C          C7
my convertible top and the gals don t mind
G7                       F                   C
Sporting with me, riding all around town for joy.

(Spoken) -- Blow your horn, Rocket, blow your horn!

(Horn sound effect leading into guitar solo.)

C                       C7       C
Step in my Rocket and a don t be late,
                          C7        C
we're pulling out about a half past eight.
                          C7     C
Going down the corner and dealer Bill,
                            C7            C
everybody in my car s going take a little pill.
Move on out,
F                    C
Oozing and cruising along.

(Guitar solo.)

In Bill Haley and The Comets cover version:

Now that you've ridden in my Rocket '88,
I'll be around every night about eight.
You know it's great, don't be late,
Everybody likes my Rocket '88.
Gals will ride in style,
Moving all along.
