Sympathy For The Devil

by The Rolling Stones
I:	Yow! Yow! Yow! Umph, ca, umph, umph 
  (over drum intro)

Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and fate

And I was 'round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate

E ? ? ? / D ? ? ? / A ? ? ? / E ? ? ? // (4x)

 C:	Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you 
Is the nature of my game

B ? ? ? /    / E ? ? ? /    // (2x)

Stuck around St. Petersberg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the Czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank in a general's rank
When the Blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank

 C:	(Chorus)

I watched the gleam while you kings and queens (who, who)
Fought for ten decades for the Goth they made
I shouted out "Who killed the Kennedys?"
When after all it was you and me

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid tracks for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay

 C:	(Chorus)

Ma, oo, Oooa  (solo on verse)

 C:	(Chorus)

Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As I end this tale, just call me Lucifer
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint

So if you meet me have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well learned qualities
Or I'll lay your soul to waste, um yeah

 C:	(Chorus)

 T:	Woo, who, Oh yeah   (solo)
Get on down, Oh yeah, Oh yeah!

Tell me baby, what's my name
Tell me honey, baby guess my name
Tell me baby, what's my name
I tell you one time, your to blame (2x)

on their Beggars Banquet
