ROCK ‚N’ ROLL KIDS 4/4 Chords And Lyrics.

Written by Brendan Graham and the winner of the 1994 European song contest, preformen by Paul Harrington and Charlie McGettigan.

The guitar chords were worked out by Marc Fahrbach and is another first for the site. This song is a request from Noel Fay (For Eurovision version by Paul Harrington & Charlie McGettigan use capo on 2nd fret)

 

I (D)remember 'sixty-two

I was sixteen and so were you

And we (G)lived next (A)door, on the (D)avenue.

Jerry Lee was big and Elvis too;

Blue jeans and blue suede shoes,

And we (G)never (A)knew what life (D)held in store.

We just (G)wanted to Rock 'n' (A)Roll for(D)ever more.

 

Chorus

(G)We were the (F#m)Rock 'n' Roll (D)Kids

And Rock 'n' (G)Roll was (D)all we did

And (G)listening to those (A)songs on the radi(D)o;

I was (G)yours and (F#m)you were (D)mine

But that was (G)once u(D)pon a time,

Now we (G)never seem to Rock 'n' (A)Roll any(D)more.

 

Now (D)Johnny's in love with the girl next door,

And Mary's down at the record store,

They don't (G)want to be...(A)...around (D)us no more.

"Golden Oldies" but we hardly speak

Too busy running to a different beat

Hard to (G)under(A)stand, we were (D)once like them.

How I (G)wish we could find those Rock 'n' Roll (A)days a(D)gain.

 

Chorus

 

I was (G)yours and (F#m)you were (D)mine

That was (G)once u(D)pon a time,

Now we (G)never seem to Rock and (A)Roll...

 

We just (G)never seem to Rock and (A)Roll any(D)more.

 

(For easier version replace F#m by A)

Capo on 2nd Fret-Tabbed by Adrian Reen
For F#m i use 20x222 with my thumb over the top and my other 3 fingers in an 'A' shape on the 3 highest strings.
 
 

(D)
I remember '62
I was sixteen and so were you
             (Em)            (A)
And we lived next door,
             (D)
On the avenue.
(D)
Jerry Lee was big and Elvis too;
Blue jeans and blue suede shoes,
            (Em)         (A)
And we never knew
               (D)
What life held in store.
            (Em)         (F#m)  (G)     (A)  (D)
We just wanted to rock 'n' roll forever more.

(G)               (F#m)
We were the Rock 'n' Roll Kids
(G)                           (D)
And Rock 'n' Roll was all we did
       (Em)      (F#m)    (G)                    (A)
And listening to those songs on the radio;
(G)                    (F#m)
I was yours and you were mine
(G)                (D)
But that was once upon a time,
               (Em)           (F#m)   (G)   (A)(D)
Now we never seem to Rock 'n' Roll anymore.

(D)
Now Johnny's in love with the girl next door,
And Mary's down at the record store,
                 (Em)       (A)
They don't want to be...
           (D)
around us no more.
(D)
"Golden Oldies" but we hardly speak
Too busy running to a different beat
            (Em)                        (A)
Hard to understand, we were once like them.
          (Em)              (F#m)      (G)               (A)  (D)
How I wish we could find those Rock 'n' Roll days again.

(G)               (F#m)
We were the Rock 'n' Roll Kids
(G)                           (D)
And Rock 'n' Roll was all we did
       (Em)      (F#m)    (G)                    (A)
And listening to those songs on the radio;
(G)                    (F#m)
I was yours and you were mine
(G)                (D)
But that was once upon a time,
               (Em)           (F#m)   (G)   (A)(D)
Now we never seem to Rock 'n' Roll anymore.

(G)                   (F#m)
I was yours and you were mine
(G)                   (D)
That was once upon a time,
               (Em)           (F#m)   (G)
Now we never seem to Rock and Roll...
             (Em)            (F#m)        (G)   (A)(D)
We just never seem to Rock and Roll anymore
