33 R.P.M. Soul

(C) Consecrate your soul or there’s gonna be hell to pay
You’ve (F) got them where they live (G)
Come the Judgement Day (C7)

(C7) Father, forgive our sins
Mother, forgive us too
(F) Forgive but don’t forget (G)
They never meant to hurt you (C7)

She’s doing (C7) the widow walk since her ship went down
(F)I’ve seen her with a pretty (G) boy
On the country side of town (C7)

Her (C7) captain is lost at sea
Her ship is forgotten too
(F) She’d admit she’d been singing (G)
The hellfire brimstone blues (C7)

Should (C7) never have tried to rock
Should never have tried to roll
But (F) damn I don’t regret (G)
The 33 RPM (C7) Soul

The real goal I’m working toward is to do something to help integrate the African and European influences of American music. I think at one time inthe history of popular music they were coming together naturally. The record companies have created a false sense of segregation. It may seem impossible to tear down, but it’s something I’m looking forward to as a life’s work.
