How To Play

Intro
Ab F# F - repeat
Bb C# C C7/Bb C (x12010)
 
        Fm           Eb          D
Jackson made twenty tapes in a day
        Eb    Db    C         Eb       Db    C      Eb    Db    C
To give away,          a-give away
         Ab
And he'd play
      Cm                                     Db
The tunes they'd call creative when they're running out of names
E                                Ab
Heaven knows he's really torn it now
         Cm                                       Db
But the names, it hurt poor Jackson, stopped the haters in his way
E
Heaven knows he's for it
Ab  Cm        Db
Sha-ame, hey, hey
E                                     F#   F
He was never quite unsure, but really sane
          F#  F
Wants to play
 
Ab F# F
Bb C# C C7/Bb C
 
         Fm           Eb        D
Jackson stole twenty souls in a day
         Eb  Db  C           Eb  Db  C
To take away,       a-take away
         Eb   Db  C
He takes away
            Ab   F# F
And no complaints
                  Bb             C#  C C7/Bb
Heart's upon his sleeve and his blade
      C                          Fm           Eb            D
Wood Jackson took the beating everyday, given out, passed away
         Eb  Db C           Eb  Db C
Another way,          hey, hey
 
              Eb  Db C
Just wants to play
              Ab
And how he'd play
    Cm                                        Db
The mob, they bleed and tremble when they're running after life
E                                Ab
Heaven knows he's really torn it now
     Cm                                            Db
The words that killed Wood Jackson's friends were written on the wall
E
   Heaven knows he's for it
F#  F
Shame
F#             F
Just wants to play
        F#       F
It's a shame
F#    F
Shame
       F#    F
It's a shame
          F#   F
Wants to play
        F#   F
It's a shame
        F#   F
It's a shame
              F#  F
Just wants to play
