SIGNS D Dsus

And the C sign said G Long-haired freaky people D need not G apply”
So I D tucked my hair up A under my hat and I G went in to ask him A why

He said Bm You look like a fine upstanding young man, G I think you’ll do
So I D took off my hat, I said A Imagine that. G Me workin’ for A you!”

Ch{ D Sign, sign, C everywhere a G sign
D Blockin’ out the scenery, G breakin’ my mind
D Do this, don’t do A that, can’t you read the C sign? (intro)

And the C sign said anybody G caught trespassin’ D would be shot on G sight
So I D jumped on the fence and A yelled at the house,
G What gives you the A right?
To Bm put up a fence to keep me out or to G keep mother nature in
If D God was here he’d A tell you to your face, G Man, you’re some kinda A sinner

Ch{

Br{ A Now, hey you, mister, can’t you read?
You’ve G got to have a shirt and D tie to get a seat
A You can’t even watch, no A you can’t eat
G You ain’t supposed to D be here

C The sign said you G got to have a membership D card to get G inside

(instr CH}

C And the sign said, G Everybody welcome. D kneel down and G pray
But D when they passed around the plate at the A end of it all,
I G didn’t have a penny to A pay

So I Bm got me a pen and a G paper and I Bm made up my own little G sign
said, D Thank you, Lord, for A thinkin’ ’bout me. G I’m alive and doin’ A fine.

Ch{ When you believe in things that you don’t understand
Then you suffer – superstition ain’t the way

Very superstitious, wash your face and hands
Rid me of the problem, do all that you can

You don’t wanna save me, sad is my song

Sweet Home ALL SUMMER LONG

It was 1989, my thoughts were short my hair was long
Caught somewhere between a boy and man

She was seventeen and she was far from in between
It was summertime in Northern Michigan Ahh, Ahh, Ahh

Splashing through the sand bar Talking by the campfire
It’s the simple things in life, like when and where

We didn’t have no internet But man I never will forget
The way the moonlight shined upon her hair

Ch{ And we were trying different things We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking ’bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long

Catching Walleye from the dock Watching the waves roll off the rocks
She’ll forever hold a spot inside my soul

We’d sing blister in the sun ‘ couldn’t wait for night to come
To hit that sand and play some rock and roll

Ch{
Sweet Home Alabama…

Now nothing seems as strange When the leaves began to change
Or how we thought those days would never end

Sometimes I’ll hear that song And I’ll start to sing along
And think man I’d love to see that girl again
And think man I’d love to see that girl again

While we were trying different things
And we were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking ’bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long
Ahh, Ahh, Ahh
Singing all summer long

SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL E D A

Please allow me to introduce myself I’m a man of wealth of taste
I’ve been around for a long long years Stole many a man’s soul and faith

I was around when Jesus Christ Had his moment of doubt and faith
Made damn sure that Pilate Washed his hands and sealed his fate

CH{Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name
‘cause what’s puzzlin’ you is the nature of my game

I stuck around St, Petersberg When I saw it was time for a change
I killed the Czar and his ministers Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank at the Generals rank
When the Blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank

CH{

I watched with glee While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades For the Gods they made

I shouted out who killed the Kennedys
When after all It was you and me

let me please introduce myself I’m a man of wealth and taste
I laid traps for the troubadors Who get killed before they reach Bombay

CH{
(Instr)
CH{

Just as every cop is a criminal, and all the sinner’s saints
Just end this tale, just call me Lucifer, I’m in need of some restraint

So if you meet me, have some courtesy, have some sympathy, and some taste
Do all you all have some politics, or I’ll lay your soul to waste
