A A6 A A6 A A6 A A6

Down at the Astoria the scene was changing

Bingo and rock were pushing out x-rating

 

D D6 D D6 D D6 D D6

We were the first band to vomit at the bar

 

A A6 A A6 A A6 A A6

And find the distance to the stage too far

 

E E6 E E6 E E6 E E6

Meanwhile it's getting late at ten o'clock

 

 

F G D

Rock is dead they say

 

A A6 A6 A A D (Same as intro)

Long live rock

 

Long live rock

I need it every night

 

D D D

Long live rock

D D6 D D6 A A6...

Come on and join the line

 

F D

Long live rock

A A6...

Be it dead or alive

 

People walk in sideways pretending that they're leaving

We put on our makeup and work out all the lead-ins

Jack is in the alley selling tickets made in Hong Kong

Promoter's in the pay box wondering where the band's gone

Back in the pub the governor stops the clock

Rock is dead they say

Long live rock

 

Chorus

 

E D A

Landslide, rocks are falling

Falling down around our very heads

We tried but you were yawning

 

E D

Look again

 

C

Rock is dead

 

G/B

Rock is dead

 

A

Rock is dead

 

The place is really jumping to the Hiwatt amps

Til a twenty inch cymbal fell and cut the lamps

In the blackout they danced right into the aisle

And as the doors fly open even the promoter smiles

Someone takes his pants off and the rafters knock

Rock is dead they say

Long live rock

 

A

Long live rock

I need it every night
