GOD GAVE ROCK ā€™Nā€™ ROLL TO YOU II
Ballard, Stanley, Simmons, Ezrin

[Rhy. Fig 1a and 1b]
[Rhy. Fig 2a and 2b]
[Rhy. Fig 3 with Riff 1]

[Riff 2a and 2b]
God gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to everyone

[Riff 3]

[Rhy. Fig 4a and 5a]
Do you know what you want?
You don t know for sure
You don t feel right, you can t find a cure
And you re getting less than what you re looking for

You don t have money
Or a fancy car
And you re tired of wishing on a fallen star
You gotta put your faith in a loud guitar

[Rhy. Fig 3]
God gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to everyone

God gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to you
Put it in the soul of everyone

[Riff 4]

[Rhy. Fig 4b and 5b]
"Now listen"
If you wanna be a singer
Or play guitar
Man, you gotta sweat it or you won t get far
Cause it s never too late to work nine-to-five

You can take a stand
Or you can compromise
You can work real hard or just fantasize
But you don t start living til you realize

[Rhy. Fig 6a, 6b and 6c]
God gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to everyone

God gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to you
Put it in the soul of everyone


[Solo 1 and 2 over Rhy. Fig 7]

[Rhy. Fig 8]
God gave rock and roll to you
(To everyone he gave the song to be sung)
Gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to everyone

God gave rock and roll to you
(To everyone he gave the song to be sung)
Gave rock and roll to you
Save rock and roll for everyone
Saved rock and roll
[Rhy. Fig 9a and 9b]

[Rhy. Fig 10]
God gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to everyone

[Rhy. Fig 11]
God gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to you
Put it in the soul of everyone
[Repeat Rhy. Fig 11 with spoken words and fade]
