AC/DC - Let there be Rock

 

4x riff

In the beginning

Back in nineteen fifty-five

Man didn't know about a rock 'n' roll show

And all that jive

The white man had the schmaltz

The black man had the blues

No one knew what they was gonna do

But Tchaikovsky had the news

He said -

"Let there be sound," and there was sound

"Let there be lights," and there was lights

"Let there be drums," and there was drums

"Let there be guitar," and there was guitar

"Let there be rock"

 

solo

4x riff

 

And it came to pass

That rock 'n' roll was born

All across the land every rockin' band

Was blowing up a storm

The guitar man got famous

The businessman got rich

And in every bar there was a superstar

With a seven year itch

There were fifteen million fingers

Learning how to play

And you could hear the fingers picking

And this is what they had to say

"Let there be light"

"Sound"

"Drums"

"Guitar"

"Let there be rock"

 

solo

 

4x riff

One night in a club called 'The Shaking Hand'

There was a forty-two decibel rocking band

And the music was good and the music was loud

And the singer turned and he said to the crowd -

"Let there be rock"
