                Roland The Roadie And Gertrude The Groupie (Shel Silverstein)

(Spoken, n.c.)
Now Roland the roadie was only a toadie,
Who set up the lights and the mikes for the shows
And Gertrude the groupie was a rock and roll fan, 
Who stood by the stage door in the rains and the snows

A                     D                          
Roland the roadie met Gertrude the groupie
      A                      E
at a rock concert back in Bayonne
    A                    D
He tried to seduce her, said he'd introduce her
   E                        A
to all of the Beatles and Stones
    A                     D                      
So Roland the roadie got Gertrude the groupie
   A                    E
a seat in the balcony above
     A                          D                       
And Gertrude the groupie felt grateful and groovy
     E                      A
but Roland the roadie felt love


     E                              A
And some folks loves ham hocks and some folks loves pork chops 
     E                         A
And some folks love vegetable soup
     E                         A
But Roland the roadie loves Gertrude the groupie
     E
But Gertrude the groupie loves groups


     A                           D                         
She stood up and screamed as the amber spot gleamed
        A                    E
on her heroes so skinny and tall
           A                       D                        
With their eyelids so droopy, and Gertrude the groupie
E                         A
she was in love with them all
A                       D                       
Roland the roadie told Gertrude the groupie 
A                        E
to wait and he'd be her man
A                         D                         
But while he dreamed of a rose covered home 
        E                          A
she was out with the group in the van





Hey Gertie, get out here, come on babe, come on out of there....
I know you're in there...
The whole trailer's moving baby....
What about me....Gertie... Oh Gertie



     B                    E                     
Now Roland the roadie is back on the road,
     B                      F#
his heart has been broken again
B                              E                       
And Gertrude the groupie waits out in the cold 
         F#                     B
for the very next group to come in


     F#                             B
And some folks loves ham hocks and some folks loves pork chops
     F#                         B
And some folks loves vegetable soup
     F#                      B                      
And Roland the roadie loves Gertrude the groupie
     F#                          B
but Gertrude the groupie loves groups....groups.....groups.....groups......
