What Gives.
Loudon Wainwright III.
Album: Social Studies.


A                              D               A
Paul McCartney & Ringo, just a fraction of the Fab Four,
A                                                                   
Some still survive from Dave Clark’s Five, 
                        E    G6
Washed up on the Mersey shore,
D           A          D                F#m   A
Gerry has a pacemaker, the Hermits name is Herman,
D                    Bm                        E    
That old man Manfred Mann & the Animals merely vermin, oooh,

A                             D                        A
Hank Junior sang with Senior, his Cheatin’ Heart grows cold,
A                                                                 
Just a few years back, Natalie and 
                                 E
Nat.. King Cole duetted and went gold,
D                        A    D                        A
There’s a way to make it pay… though they’ve flown the coup,
             D                   A     Bm
John Denver, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Holly, 
                                  F#m    E
Ricky Nelson, Otis Redding,In one super..group.


Dm                    A            E                 
Bring me the bones of Brian Jones, and 
                A
Joplin’s tinted glasses,
Dm              A                          
Hendrix’s pick, Keith Moon’s drumstick and 
  F#m       Bm   E6 E
A caftan of Mama Cass's

A                           D           D6  A          
Rock & Roll will never die, neither can her heroes,
A                                                             
Just pick a figure, with three digits, 
                       E     G6
Then tack on about six zero’s,
D               A             D                   A
The Beatles are forever, it’s like John never got shot,
D                  Bm                        E
Here’s what gives, Elvis lives, what in fact is not,
D                  Bm                E6         A
Here’s what gives, Elvis lives, what is in fact is not…..
D       A             D       A             D       A
That is all you need, that is all you need, that is all you need.
