                Roll Over Beethoven [Beatles Cover Version]
Written and Originally Performed by Chuck Berry
-----------------------------------------------
This is the Beatles cover version that appears on both "Beatlemania! 
With The Beatles[Canada/UK]" and "The Beatles Second Album[US]" 
records.  Although it is a cover of an original Chuck Berry song,
the fab four version features powerchords/blues riffs instead of
standard chords.  The intro is also a bit different.  You could just
use regular powerchords or standard chords instead of the riffs but
it does not sound as cool.

D riff [Easy way: Just play D, but it doesn't sound as cool]
I'm going to write a little letter gonna mail it to my local DJ
G riff                                           D riff
It's a rocking little record I want my jockey to play
G riff                      A riff          D riff 
Roll over Beethoven, got to hear it again today

You know my temperature's rising and the jukebox blows a fuse
A heart beating rhythm and my soul keeps singing the blues
Roll over Beethoven and tell Tchaikovsky the news

I've got a rocking pneumonia, I need a shot of rhythm and blues (oooh!)
I think I caught it off the writer sitting down by the rhythm reviews
Roll over Beethoven, rocking in two by two

D
Well if your feelin' it and like it, then get your lover

And reel it, rock it, roll it over
G riff
Move on up just a trifle further

D
Reel it, rock it, 'n' roll it over
G riff               A riff                D riff
Roll over Beethoven, rocking in two by two

Well early in the morning I'm a giving you a warning
Don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Hey diddle diddle I'll play my fiddle, ain't got nothing to lose
Roll over Beethoven and tell Tchaikovsky the news

You know she winks like a glow worm, dance like a spinning top
She's got a crazy partner, wanna see him reel and rock
As long as she's got a dime the music will never stop

D
Roll over Beethoven
