VERSE 1:  In the begin-ning, back in nineteen fifty-five,

          Man didn't know about the rock 'n' roll show and all that jive.

          The white man had the schmaltz, the black man had the blues,
          No one knew what they was gonna do, but Tchaikovsky had the news.
          He said:

          (drums and bass only)
CHORUS 1: "Let there be sound," there was sound.

          "Let there be light," there was light.

          "Let there be drums," there was drums.

          "Let there be guitar," there was guitar.
          "Oh, let there be rock,"

SOLO:     |:A5      |A5       |A5         |A5     :| PLAY 5 TIMES

          |A5       |A5       |A5         |A5      |

LINK 1:   |:G5 E5   |G5 E5   |G5 E5 A5 E5|G5 E5  :|PLAY 4 TIMES

          (drum and bass only)
VERSE 2:  And it came to pass that rock 'n' roll was born,

          All across the land every rockin' band was blowing up a storm.

          And the guitarman got famous, the buisinessman got rich,

          And in ev'ry bar there was a superstar with a seven year itch.

          There were fifteen million fingers learning how to play,

          And you could hear the fingers picking and this is what they had 

          to say:

CHORUS 2  "Let there be light.


          Oh, let there be rock."
         |A5     |A5     |A5    |A5    |
         |A5     |A5     |A5    |A5    |

                                                         G5 E5 A5 G5 E5
VERSE 3:     One night in a club called the Shakin' Hand,          
                                                     G5 E5 A5 G5 E5
         There was a fourty-two decibel rockin' band. 
                                                       G5 E5 A5 G5 E5
         And the music was good and the music was loud.
                                                        G5 E5 A5 G5 E5
         And the singer turned and he said to the crowd:
         "Let there be rock."

SOLO:    |:A5    |A5    |A5    |A5    :|PLAY 6 TIMES

         |:B5    |B5    |B5    |B5    :|PLAY 10 TIMES
