The Beatles
Roll Over Beethoven (Guitar tab)

PROPS GO TO: Alan Ambler





Roll Over Beethoven (Chuck Berry)
This is the Beatles cover version as on 'With The Beatles.' I have
produced what I hope is correct, but am more than willing to listen
to any alterations anybody has (email me at Ajambler@btinternet.com).
I was becoming frustrated with the wrong tabs submitted in the olga
and other places, so sat down and worked it out over the course of
a weekend. I thought I ought to share it with the world.

Enjoy

Alan

D riff
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

Well that's it, once you get the finger posistions worked out it will come quickly
