                This is a modified version of DeX3's chord write up. 95% of
the work is his, I just tweaked a couple of chords and added
a walkdown which sounds closer to the real thing to my ear.

   Em  C  D/F  G   B7         C* walkdown (into B7)

INTRO:
2x: Em  C  D/F

Em                    C                      D/F
This is the ballad of Hollywood Jack and the Rage Cage
Em            C                                      D/F
Nothing could stop them when Jables and Rage hit the stage
Em                         C                         D/F
And Hollywood Jack hit the big time and when to make movies
Em                       C                       D/F
Rage Kage was left far behind in the dust of his dreams

       Em           D/F                 G         C*          B7
And he grumbled and growled and watched Hollywood Jack on Jay Leno
   Em           D/F          G           C*            B7
He bellowed and said he'd be nothing without help from Kage
   Em            D/F       G          C*         B7
He burned up the photos of Jables and Kage doing mushrooms
Em           D/F           G         C*      B7
"f**k him, I don't need no Hollywood Jack anyway"

Em                         C                   D/F
So Hollywood Jack lived up high on a hill in a bubble
Em                              C                 D/F
And Rage Kage lived deep in the broiling valley below

         Em        C
Yes, the Rage Kage bubbled with rage
   D/F
He looked at the ground
       B7
And he looked on the stage
    Em
The lava was flowing
    C                      D/F      B7
And boiling inside the old Kage

Em           D/F              G         C*        B7
As Hollywood Jack climbed the ladder of stardom before him
Em                D/F      G             C*            B7
He watched as his indie credentials flew right out the door
Em                     D/F          G            C*        B7
He'd make millions and then he'd go out and he'd make even more millions
Em               D/F             G           C*       B7
He'd screen KG's calls and snort coke of the ass of a whore

Em
No one respected him
C
They just rejected him
G                      D/F
No one would represent Kage
Em                         C
Left on the streets of his dreams
                       G            B7
he would cry, and he'd rage for the stage

Ahahaaa

FLUTE SOLO:
4x: Em  C  D/F  (add B7 to end solo)

     Em                   C                        D/F
Then Hollywood Jack got a message that Kage was in trouble
     Em                      C                     D/F
They sent Kage away cause he had gone completely insane
   Em                     C                  D/F
So Hollywood Jack jumped upon a jetplane and flew all that night through the rain
   Em                    C                        D/F
To be with his friend to see what remained of his brain

     Em        D/F           G             C*       B7
Then Hollywood Jack told the doctors: "You got to retrieve him!"
       Em          D/F     G           C*             B7
You've got the technology, use the techniques of your trade
   Em              D/F         G            C*           B7
He grabbed their lapels and he screamed "BY GOD YOU MUST SAVE HIM!"
        Em            D/F          G             C*          B7
Because Rage Kage and I; can't you see that were one and the same!

Aaaah!

Em
RAGE KAGE!
C
OH RAGE KAGE!
           G                     D/F
There'd be magic inside that old name
        Em
And you know,
        C
yes you know
            G                  B7
When you're going completely insane

       Em
Oh the Rage Kage!
       C
Oh the Rage Kage!
       G                    D/F
Oh the lion will roar once again
        Em
And you know
        C
Yes you know
            G                  B7
When you're going completely insane

Em          D/F          G            C          B7
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Em          D/F          G            C          B7
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Em          D/F          G            C          B7
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Em          D/F          G            C          B7
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Em          D/F          G            C          B7
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Em          D/F          G            C          B7
Hollywood Jack and the Rage Kage were out once again...
