Tribute Chords

Standard Tuning

Repeat Am.

This is the greatest and best song in the world... Tribute.
Long time ago me and my brother Kyle here,
We was hitchhikin' down a long and lonesome road.
All of a sudden, there shined a shiny demon...
In the middle of the road.
And he said:
A5 (Palm-Muted)
"Play the best song in the world, or I'll eat your souls."
Well me and Kyle, we looked at each other,
And we each said... "Okay"

Am                                 G
And we played the first thing that came to our heads,
Just so happened to be,
Am                   G             F
The Best Song in the World, it was The Best Song in the World.

D                          F
Look into my eyes and it's easy to see
        C                     G
One and one make two, two and one make three,
It was destiny.
D                           F
Once every hundred-thousand years or so,
         C                      G
When the sun doth shine and the moon doth glow
And the grass don't grow...

Needless to say, the beast was stunned.
Whip-crack went his swampy tail,
And the beast was done.
He asked us: "Be you angels?"
And we said, "Nay. We are but men!"


D     F     C       G
Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh-ah-ah,
Ohhh, whoah, ah-whoah-oh!

Am               G                   Am
This is not The Greatest Song in the World.
Am                 G        Am
No, this is just a tribute.
Am                    G                    Am
Couldn't remember The Greatest Song in the World.
Am            G        Am
No, this is a tribute, oh.

Am G               D           F
   To The Greatest Song in the World, All right!
Am G                   D           F
   It was The Greatest Song in the World, All right!
Am         G
It was the best muthafuckin' song
D                        F
The greatest song in the world.

Am - G - D - F (x2)

Am               G
And the peculiar thing is this my friends:
D                        F
The song we sang on that fateful night,
Am                       G                  D      F
It didn't actually sound anything like this song.

               Am           G           D      F
This is just a tribute! You gotta' believe me!
                    Am      G                 D      F
And I wish you were there! Just a matter of opinion.
          Am        G
Ah, fuck! Good God, God lovin',
D                    F
So surprised to find you can't stop it.
Am   G   D   F

E     F     G         E     F             E     F
            All right!          All right!
