Intro: Em

Verse 1

Em7
Hey once I was a boogie singer playin' in a rock and roll band
I never had no problems burning down them one night stands
And everything around me got to stop to feelin' so low 
And I decided quickly yes I did to disco down and check out the show

Chorus
             D   Em      D   E          D    E      D     E
Yeah they was dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
     D    Em      D   Em D  Em
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted

Gm7
Play that funky music white boy play that funky music right
                          Bbm
Play that funky music white boy

Em             Bm             A7                    B7                  
Lay down a boogie and play that funky music till you die

Verse 2

Em7
I tried to understand this I thought that they were out of their minds
How could I be so foolish how could I to not see I was the one behind
So still I kept on fighting well loosing every step of the way
I said I must go back there I got to go back and check to see if things still the same

Chorus
             D   Em      D   E          D    E      D     E
Yeah they was dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
     D    Em      D   Em D  Em
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
Gm7
Play that funky music white boy play that funky music right
                                   Bbm
Play that funky music white boy
Em7             Bm             A7                    B7                  
Lay down a boogie and play that funky music till you die
Till you die

Verse 3

Em7
Now first it wasn't easy changin' rock and roll and minds 
And things were getting shaky I thought I'd have to leave it behind
But now its so much better it's so much better I'm funking out in every way
But I'll never lose that feelin' no I won't of how I learned my lesson that day

Chorus

             D   Em      D   E          D    E      D     E
Yeah they was dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
     D    Em      D   Em D  Em
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
Gm7
Play that funky music white boy play that funky music right
                                   Bbm
Play that funky music white boy
Em             Bm             A7                    B7                         
Lay down a boogie and play that funky music till you die

Lack of accuracy. Chords should be 9ths not minor 7ths. Totally different sound. 9ths Make it Funky. There's no D to Em in the song
