        C           G/B                      D/A        G
And the sign said, "Long-haired freaky people need not apply."
   D                   A                   G                    A
So I tucked my hair up under my hat, and I went in to ask him, "Why?"
Bm                                                G                        Gsus4  G
 He said, "You look like a fine, upstanding young man, I think you'll do."
     D                           A                 G              A
So I took off my hat and said, "Imagine that. Huh, me working for you."

D           C            G
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
D                         G
Blocking out the scenery, breaking my mind
D                 A                        C
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

| D | Dsus2 D | Dsus2 D | Dsus2 D |

        C                   G/B               D/A               G
And the sign said, "Anybody caught trespassing would be shot on sight."
   D                           A                         G                   A
So I jumped on the fence and I yelled at the house, "Hey! What gives you the right
   Bm                                   G                        Gsus4  G
to put up a fence to keep me out, or to keep Mother Nature in?"
   D                 A                       G                        A
If God was here he'd tell you to your face, "Man, you're some kind of sinner."

D           C            G
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
D                         G
Blocking out the scenery, breaking my mind
D                 A                        C         D
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

  A
Now hey you mister, can't you read?
    G                       D
You got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat.
                          A
You can't even watch, no, you can't eat.
G                     D | Dsus2 D | Dsus2 D | Dsus2 D |
You ain't supposed to be here.

C               G                        D             G
Sign said, "You got to have a membership card to get inside."

Guitar solo: | D C G | D G | D A | C | D | Dsus2 D | Dsus2 D | Dsus2 D |

        C           G/B                     D/A                   G
And the sign said, "Everybody welcome. Come in and kneel down and pray."
              D                              A                G                      A
But when they passed around the plate at the end of it all, I didn't have a penny to pay
     Bm                             G                        Gsus4  G
So I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own little sign
         D                    A                           G              A
I said, "Thank you, Lord, for thinking 'bout me, but I'm alive and doing fine."

D           C            G
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
D                         G
Blocking out the scenery, breaking my mind
D                 A                        C
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

D           C            G | D G | D A | C |
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

D          C  G | D G | D A | C | (repeat and fade)
Sign, sign
