Berry Chuck – School Day
 Written and performed by Chuck Berry
 Tab transcribed by Collins Crapo

Up in the mornin' and off to school
The teacher is teachin' the golden rule
American hist'ry and practical math
You're studyin' hard, hopin' to pass
Workin' your fingers right down to the bone
C7                                        G
  And the guy behind you won't leave you alone

Verse 2:
Ring ring, goes the bell
The cook in the lunchroom's ready to sell
You're lucky if you can find a seat
You're fortunate if you have time to eat
Back in the classroom, open your books
Bet the teacher don't know how mean she looks

Verse 3:
Soon as 3:00 rolls around
You finally lay your burden down
Close up your books, get out of your seat
Down the halls and into the street
Up through the corner and round the bend
Right to the juke joint you go in

Verse 4:
Drop the coin right into the slot
You gotta hear somethin' that's really hot
With the one you love you're makin' romance
All day long you've been wantin' to dance
Feelin' the music from head to toe
Round and round and round you go

(instrumental, same pattern as verses)

(repeat verse 4)

Verse 5:
Hail, hail, rock 'n' roll!
Deliver me from the days of old
Long live rock 'n' roll
The beat of the drums loud and bold
Rock, rock, rock 'n' roll
The feelin' is there, body and soul
