After 'Tonight' and 'Ecstasy' on _Side 3_ Eric had to *tell* people he's
a rocker?

                             "I'm A Rocker"
                             (Eric Carmen)

Intro:

	4X (band enters 3rd time):

	 v   v   v   v     v    v   v   v

	---5-----5-------|---5--5-5---------|
	---7b9-----------|---7b9----7p5-----|

Verse 1:

	 A [lead guitar repeats intro riff]
	Back beat boogie got a hold on me, make me wanna jump and shout
	                                              D    Dsus4 D
	Twisting like a top, I never want to stop tonight

Pre-chorus:

	           F#m                 C#
	You surely look like a [1, 3: magazine  2: movie queen]
	             D                    A
	And you can move like I've never seen
	 C#                    D
	Reelin' and a-rockin, babe
	            B/D#       E   /D  /C#  /B
	Come on and dance with me

Chorus:

	[repeat 2X]:

	       A [lead guitar repeats intro riff]
	I'm a rocker, I'm a roller
	I been a-boogieing since I ditched the stroller
	            E        A
	So come on hold me tight
	            D         E    A    [1st repeat: E]
	And we can rock the night away

Verse 2:

	Tight booted teenie with the smiling face
	Make me want to smile and shake
	Come on out today and shimmy like a rattlesnake

[repeat chorus]

Bridge:

	   D
	I get this feeling when I hear that beat
	         A
	I gotta jump and get up on the table
	                  D
	'Cause when that rhythm and blues electrifies my shoes
	           B [N.C.]                 E
	I get the message like it came by cable  (Hey!)

[guitar solo over chorus chords]

[repeat bridge]

[repeat verse 1 and pre-chorus]

[repeat chorus]

Coda:

	E         A               D         E    A
	Hold me tight and we can rock the night away
	             E         A               D         E    A
	So come on, hold me tight and we can rock the night away

	guitar 1:

	(A)
	 v     v     v     v        v     v     v     v

	---------19b21-------19b21|r19-17----2--------------|
	--------------------------|-------19-2--------------|
	--------------------------|----------0--------------|

	(guitar 2 plays a contrasting part that I can't pick out of
	 the near-mono mix)
