The Pusher by Steppenwolf

Capo on the third fret. All chords with respect to the capo.

I saw a transcription of this song and it didn?t sound quite right.
So here is how it goes:

First strum an E7 chord, and hammer on the first fret on the
third string at the same time. Always use upstrokes.

The chord progression for the whole song, if I remember correctly,
is E7, Fm, G and Fm.

E7 (0201xx)
Fm (0402xx)
G  (0504xx)


[Verse 1]
You know I've smoked a lot of grass
O' Lord, I've popped a lot of pills
But I never touched nothin'
That my spirit could kill

You know, I've seen a lot of people walkin' 'round
With tombstones in their eyes
But the pusher don't care
Ah, if you live or if you die

God damn, the pusher
God damn, I say the pusher
I said God damn
God damn the pusher man

[Verse 2]
You know the dealer, the dealer is a man
With the love grass in his hand
Oh but the pusher is a monster
Good God, he's not a natural man

The dealer for a nickel
Lord, will sell you lots of sweet dreams
Ah, but the pusher ruin your body
Lord, he'll leave your
He'll leave your mind to scream

God damn, the pusher
God damn, God damn the pusher
I said God damn
God, God damn the pusher man

[Verse 3]
Well, now if I were the president of this land
You know, I'd declare total war on the pusher man
I'd cut him if he stands, and I'd shoot him if he'd run
Yes, I'd kill him with my Bible and my razor and my gun

God damn the pusher
God damn the pusher
I said God damn
God damn the pusher man...

Not sure why this version was rated one star by the first voter - the chords are absolutely perfect. Good work, 5 stars.
