Can't Stop The Music chords by Hall And Oates

Hall And Oates chords for Cant stop the music

Guitar chords with lyrics

This is all my own work.

"Can't Stop the Music (He Played It Much Too Long)"
 Hall & Oates
 From the album "War Babies" (1974)

 This is the lead-off song from the album, and also the only song
that Oates sings. And it's a good one. Not terribly difficult to
play, either, although you have to be a little creative since it's
not much of a guitar song. (There is a little bit of guitar in there,
but it's mostly keyboard/bass led). First I'll just lay out the
chords, then tab out my own guitar arragement below that.
