                The King of Rock'n'Roll - Prefab Sprout
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Prefab Sprout 
The King of Rock'n'Roll (1988) 
(McAloon)

From: "From Langley Park to Memphis"

It’s not easy to get the chords (C/E or Em?), but I think I'm at least 
close in most of the cases. Any corrections are highly welcome!

VERSE
       Dsus4                       Cadd9
All my lazy teenage boasts are now high precision ghosts
            A7sus4                    G          D/F#
And they're coming round the track to haunt me


VERSE
         Dsus4                    Cadd9
When she looks at me and laughs I remind her of the facts
        A7sus4                 G          D/F#
I'm the king of Rock'n'Roll completely


BRIDGE
G         D/F#              C/E                  [D D C C]
  Up from    suede shoes to     my baby blues


CHORUS
Dsus4      Bm7           A7sus4 Em
  Hot dog, jumping frog, Albu---querque
Dsus4      Bm7           A7sus4 Em
  Hot dog, jumping frog, Albu---querque


VERSE
    Dsus4                            Cadd9
The dream helps you forget you ain't never danced a step
         A7sus4               G      D/F#
You were never fleet of foot, hippy


VERSE
        Dsus4                       Cadd9
All the pathos you can keep for the children in the street
        A7sus4               G         D/F#
For the vision I have had is sweeping


BRIDGE
G           D/F#         C/E                [D D C C]
  New broom,   this room,  sweep it clean


CHORUS
Dsus4      Bm7           A7sus4 Em
  Hot dog, jumping frog, Albu---querque
Dsus4      Bm7           A7sus4 Em

G                      D/F#                C/E
Fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine oh yeah


VERSE
       Dsus4                             Cadd9
Now my rhythm ain't so hot, but it's the only friend I've got
        A7sus4                 G        D/F#
I'm the king of Rock’n’Roll completely


VERSE
        Dsus4                           Cadd9
All the pretty birds have flown now I'm dancing on my own
        A7sus4                 G        D/F#
I'm the king of Rock’n’Roll completely
G         D/F#              C/E                  [D D C C]
