Capo: 2nd fret

Intro: E A E B E 

           E
Well I was on a bus coming back to us 
     A            E
from Atlanta in '53 

And I picked up a rhythm and blues magazine layin' 
B
underneath my seat 
      E
And I found out the stuff they were playin' us 
       A                   E
wasn't made from grits and bone 
                                            B
And it takes more than the Crewcuts and Pat Boone 
           E
to take me home 

Chorus:
           E                      A         E
I want the real thing give me the real thing 

Make it loud and make you proud 
                  B
of the songs they sing 
                 E
I Don't want you under my roof with your 86 proof 
        A                        E
Watered down 'til it tastes like tea 

You're gonna pull my string
            B                E
make it the real thing for me 

Solo: E B E

     E
I remember old Elvis when he forgot 
      A             E
to remember to forget 

And when young Johnny Cash hadn't seen this side of 
B
big river yet 
         E
And when sun was more than daylight shining on
A                E
Memphis, Tennessee 
    E
And Luther and Lewis and Perkins was pickin' 
    B                       E
and playin' them songs for me 

Chorus:
           E                      A         E
I want the real thing give me the real thing 

Make it loud and make you proud 
                  B
of the songs they sing 
                 E
I Don't want you under my roof with your 86 proof 
        A                        E
Watered down 'til it tastes like tea 

You're gonna pull my string
            B                E
make it the real thing for me 

Solo: E A E B E A E B E

Chorus:
           E                      A         E
I want the real thing give me the real thing 

Make it loud and make you proud 
                  B
of the songs they sing 
                 E
I Don't want you under my roof with your 86 proof 
        A                        E
Watered down 'til it tastes like tea 

You're gonna pull my string
            B                E
make it the real thing for me 

You're gonna pull my string
            B                E
make it the real thing for me
