WE WERE ROCK & ROLL
by Janelle Monáe (from The Electric Lady)


Key: F Minor
Capo 1

[INTRO]
Em G Am Em

[VERSE 1]
Em
I remember ‘round Autumn time
   G
I smell the breeze, I feel the sun
    Am
Old memories come back to me
           Em
The way we used to dance, the way you clapped your hands
    Em
And I remember the smell of guns
     G
War lived in me, but love finally won
     Am
I've been delayed, I've been denied
    Bm
And then you came around and took the crown

[HOOK]
           Em
We were unbreakable
              G
We were like rock & roll
               Am
We were like a king and queen
                Em
I want you to know
                   Em
No matter how the story's told,
              G
We were like rock & roll
           Am
We were unbreakable
                Em
I want you to know

[VERSE 2]
Em
I remember a time alone
  G
Wanted to dance, locked in your arms
     Am
Your melody stays haunting on me
          Em
You were twenty-one and thought we owned the sun
    Em
And I remember our plan to run
  G
My rebel ways and your utter nonsense
     Am
We’d go insane, but it felt so fun
    Bm
And now your queen is home to take your throne

[HOOK]
           Em
We were unbreakable
              G
We were like rock & roll
               Am
We were like a king and queen
                Em
I want you to know
                   Em
No matter how the story's told,
              G
We were like rock & roll
           Am
We were unbreakable
                Em
I want you to know

[BRIDGE]
                        Em
Now help me say it’s alright
                        G
You help me say it’s alright
            Am
Say it’s alright, alright
            Em
Say it’s alright
                         Em
Now, help me say it’s alright
      G
Ooh alright Uh-huh
            Am
Say it’s alright, alright
         Em
Say it's alright

[GUITAR SOLO]
                           Em
Kellindo, help me sing it louder!
                 G        Am    Em
Help me sing it louder!
Em    G
     Ohhh!
            Am                               Em
We had an incredible, unshakeable, unbreakable love
                 Em
Yeah, say it's alright
          G
You are my rock & roll
            Am                                Em
We had an incredible, unshakeable, unbreakable love, yeah

                            Em                       C
And every time I beat for you (Wanna be your rock & roll)
                       D                       G
