Ian Dury - Sex And Drugs And Rock And Roll guitar chord

Your rating:
Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, Ian Dury

I have an old copy of the New Boots & Panties Songbook, but, alas it
is missing the pages containing the start of S&D&R&R!!!!

However, I have jotted down the remaining section which is in the

I hope you can work the rest out.  I know it's based around E7

                               B7         E7
Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll is very good indeed

C#m             G#m      A                   B
Keep your silly ways or throw them out the window

C#m             G#m      A                   B
The wisdom of your ways, I’ve been there and I know

C#m             G#m      A
Lots of other ways, what a jolly bad show

   D                   B        A    G     E7
If all you ever do is business you don't like

C#m             G#m      A                   B
Every bit of clothing ought to make you pretty

C#m             G#m       A                   B
You can cut the clothing grey it's such a pity

C#m                 G#m         A             B
I should wear the clothing of Mister Walter Mitty

D                               B             A   G   E
See my tailor he’s called Simon I know it's going to fit

All in E7
Here's a little bit of advice, you're quite welcome it is
Don't do nothing that is cut-price you know what that'll
make you be

They will try their tricky device, trap you with the ordin'ry

Get your teeth into a small slice of the cake of liberty

……Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll  (to fade)

A brilliant song, in fact New Boots & Panties was the first album I
ever bought - What a corker !!!

All the best!!

Ian Dury CHord progressions very hard to find. Does anyone have any down properly? Clever Trevor, Abracadabra, Sweet Gene VIncent, England's Glory.
I would kill very small insects for this information.
