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

Am                                 G
And we played the first thing that came to our heads
F
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
        F
It was destiny
D                           F
Once every hundred-thousand years or so
         C                      G
When the sun doth shine and the moon doth glow
         F
And the grass don't grow

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

ROCK!

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

This is not The greatest song in the world

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

The greatest song in the world
