Intro: A

            A                                                                     E
Well, we're big rock singers, we got golden fingers and we're loved everywhere we go (that sounds like us)
                                                E7                     A
We sing about beauty and we sing about truth at ten thousand dollars a show (right)
                                                                                   D
We take all kind of pills that give us all kind of thrills but the thrill we never know
       E                                                                           A
Is the thrill that'll getcha when you get your picture on the cover of the Rolling Stone

        A                                                             E
I got a freaky old lady, name of Cocaine Katy, who embroideries on my jeans
                                     E7              A
I got my poor old, grey-haired daddy drivin' my limousine
                                                                        D
Now, it's all designed to blow our minds, but our minds won't really be blown
         E                                                                         A
Like the blow that'll getcha when you get your picture on the cover of the Rolling Stone

         E

(Stone) Gonna buy five copies for our mothers
E                                         D                    A
(Stone) Gonna see my smilin' face, on the cover of the Rolling Stone

(Hey, I know how...ROCK AND ROLL!)   Solo   (Awww, that's beautiful)

         A                                                       E
We got a lot of teenage blue-eyed groupies who'll do anything we say
                                   E7                   A
We got a genuine Indian guru, he's teachin' us a better way
                                                                   D
We got all the friends that money can buy, so we never have to be alone
       E                                                                            A
