Play That Funky Music:Wild Cherry.
#1 in 1976.

#1.
E                   D     E D  E            D           E   D
Once I was a Boogie singer.....playin' in a rock & Roll band.
  E            D       E D  E            D         E     D     
I never had no problems.....burnin' down one night stands.
    E          D        E D  E               D          E  D    
And everything around me.....got to start to feelin' so low,
    E         D       E D    E              D             E   D
and I quickly decided.....to disco down and check out the show.

CHORUS:
                E           D           E             D
Yeah, they were dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin',
    E            D          E           D
and just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted...
Gm7                   C          Gm7                   C
Play that funky music white boy..play that funky music right.
Gm7                   Bb          E                        C
Play that funky music white boy...lay down that boogie and play
           D              E  D
that funky music till you die...
         E    D            E   D E D
Till you die, oh, till you die.

#2.
  E             D         E D     E
I tried to understand this......I thought that they were 
D            E    D
out of their minds.
    E                 D    E D     E             D
How could I be so foolish?......to not see I was the 
    E      D
one behind.
    E               D       E D        E            D
So, still I kept on fighting.....well, losing every step 
       E  D
of the way.
  E               D         E D      E
I said, I must go back there.....and check to see if 
D                    E   D
things still are the same.

CHORUS:
                E           D           E             D
Yeah, they were dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin',
    E            D          E           D
and just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted...
Gm7                   C          Gm7                   C
Play that funky music white boy..play that funky music right.
Gm7                   Bb          E                        C
Play that funky music white boy...lay down that boogie and play
           D              E  D
that funky music till you die...
         E    D            E   D E D
Till you die, oh, till you die.

     E               D   E D  E               D       E    D
Now, first it wasn't easy.....changin' Rock & Rollin' minds.
    E                   D    E D     E                   D
And things were getting shaky......I thought I'd have to leave
   E     D
it behind.
    E                D     E D       E              D     E  D
But now it's so much better......I'm funking out in every way.
         E               D      E D     E                D
But I'll never lose that feelin'.....of how I learned my lesson 
     E   D
that day...

CHORUS:
               E           D           E             D
when they were dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin',
    E            D          E           D
and just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted...
Gm7                   C          Gm7                   C
Play that funky music white boy..play that funky music right.
Gm7                   Bb          E                        C
Play that funky music white boy...lay down that boogie and play
           D              E  D
that funky music till you die...
         E    D            E   D E D
Till you die, oh, till you die.

OUTRO:
              Gm7                    C
They shouted, play that funky music..play that funky music..
Gm7                          C
Play that funky music..gotta keep on playin' funky music..
Gm7
Play that funky music..(Outro: x8)

Gm7                   C          Gm7                   C
Play that funky music white boy..play that funky music right...
(last line x11.)
