Power chords

Chorus: 
E5
He's in love with rock 'n' roll whoa         
E5
He's in love with gettin' stoned whoa
E5                                       (<-Repeat 2x holding the notes
He's in love with Janie Jones whoa        out on the 2nd time)
E5
But he don't like his boring job, no

Verse 1:
B5
And he knows what he's got to do
                                  E5
He knows he's gotta have fun with you

You lucky lady!
A5
And he knows when the evening comes
                                                  B5
When his job is done he'll be over in his car for you

Chorus

Verse 2:
B5
And in the in-tray lots of work
                                          E5
But the boss at the firm always thinks he shirks
A5
But he's just like everyone
                                                    B5
He's got a Ford Cortina that just won't run without fuel

Fill 'er up, Jacko!

Chorus

Verse 3:
B5
And the invoice, it don't quite fit
                                      E5 
There's no payola in his alphabetical file

'Cept for the government, man!
A5
This time he's gonna really tell the boss
                                              B5
He's gonna really let him know exactly how he feels

It's pretty bad!

Chorus: 
E5
He's in love with rock 'n' roll whoa         
E5
He's in love with gettin' stoned whoa
E5                                       
He's in love with Janie Jones whoa        
E5
But he don't like his boring job,

Outro:
     C#5      B5     C#5         
No-o-o  No-o-o  No-o-o  
         A5
Let them know
         B5       E5 
Let them know

Awesome! Takes some work on the timing, but fun, fun song. Rocking on my acoustic - wishing I had an electric for this one.

I think the E5's in the chorus are right, for the rhythm it works, but there seems to be some more action going on from what I can remember. Everything else seems perfect!

In any case, thanks man, glad I checked this tab out. Now way I was getting through this without the words.

I came up with this for the chorus part (all E5's part). Sounds better to me, even if not exact to recordings:

Forget about single strumming this part if you're playing solo like me, just start in jamming away...

He's in love w/ rcknrll whoa!
He's in love w/ getnstd whoa!
He's in love w/ J.Jones whoa!

He . . dontlike hisbrnjob no!

Note: the E to A transitions are a synch in open chords. Just lock your index on the D# (1st fret, 4th string) and dance the others back and forth on the 2nd fret strings).
