E                                       A         E
I was on a bus coming back to us from Atlanta in 53'
       E                                          B7              
And I picked up a rhythm and blues magazine laying underneath my seat   
And I found out the stuff they'd been playing us
        A                   E
wasn't made from girts and bone
                                                 B7               E
And it would take more than the crewcuts and Pat Boone to take me home

           E                            A
I want the Real Thing, Give me the Real Thing
        E                                              B7
Make it loud and I'll make you proud of the songs they sing
I don't want you under my roof with your 86 proof
        A                        E
watered down till it tastes like tea
                                        B7             E
You're gonna pull my string make it the Real Thing for me

E                                        A               E
I remember old Elvis when he forgot to remember to forget
         E                                          B7
And when young Johnny Cash hadn't seen this side of Big River yet
         E                                     A                E
And when Sun was more than daylight shining on Memphis Tennessee
And Luther, and Lewis, and Perkins was picking
     B7                     E
and playing them songs for me

Repeat Chorus (2x)
                                        B7             E
You're gonna pull my string make it the Real Thing for me
