Rex Bob Lowenstein.
Mark Germino.
Album: Rank & File.
(It's basically; 'I fought the law & the
law won' how did this guy not get sued?)

Intro: E A E A E B E 
E                        A      E
There's a disc jockey in Hartlanberg,
E              B   E
Who works at W.A.N.T.
E                    A       E
He puts two or three eggs in him,
E                       B    E
And he's in your car by 6.00 am.

E                           A           E
He lives for his job and he accepts his pay,
E                             B    E
You can call and request 'Lay Lady Lay',
E                               A               E
He'll play Stanley Jordan, The 'Dead and Little Feat,
E                                     B                E
And he'll even play the band from the college down the street.

        A       E       B    E
And his name is Rex Bob Lowenstein,
     A     E            B     E
He's forty-seven, going on sixteen,
    A       E                      B                 E
His request line's open, but he'll tell you where to go,
          A              E              B          E   A E B E A E B E
If you're dumb enough to ask him why he plays Hank Snow.

E                                       A   E
Well, he tries to keep his talking to a minimum,
E                       B      E
He's a Democrat, he's a Republican,
E                           A          E
He's an Ad man with a great voice, say some,
E                                    B       E
But when he spins those records he's neither one.

E                                 A          E
He'll talk to the truckers on the interstate strip,
E                         B     E
The housewife and the car dealership,
E                                       A     E
And when his second wife left him for a paper millionaire,
E                          B      E
He cried unashamedly right on the air,

        A       E       B    E
And his name is Rex Bob Lowenstein,
     A     E            B     E
He's forty-seven, going on sixteen,
    A              E           B        C#m7
His request line's open but he makes no bones,
      A              E           B      E    A E A E B E A E
About why he plays Madonna after George Jones.

E                        A          E
Then, one day a man in a pinstriped suit,
E                                  B          E
Took the owner of the station to a restaurant booth,
E                             A             E
His pitch was simple, "you'll increase your sales,
E                                  B           E
"If you only play the song list we send in the mail."

E                      A   E
He guaranteed a larger audience,
E                  B      E
Less confusion and higher points,
E                                      A      E
"But your drive-time jock won't get to do his thing.
E                                B          E
"Hey he's not half bad, tell me, what's his name?"

         A       E       B    E
Well his name is Rex Bob Lowenstein,
     A          E               B      E
He's frequently heard, but he's seldom seen,
    A         E              B       C#m7
His formula's simple and his format's big,
        A                  E                B        E    A E B E x 2
"I just play anything, you call and tell me what you dig."

E                      A    E
Now Rex Bob David Saul Lowenstein,
E                              B           E
Quit his job a week later, but before he'd leave,
E                        A            E
He locked and bolted the control room door,
E                                   B                 E
And played smash or trash till they cuffed him on the floor.

E                                     A            E
Well they drag him into court and the judge said, "Rex,
E                                      B        E
"I've got to lock you up, for what I'm not sure yet,
E                                         A           E
"But your boss here says he thinks you're wrapped too tight.
E                                         B           E
"But, by the way thanks for playing 'Moon River' last night"

        A       E       B    E
And his name is Rex Bob Lowenstein,
       A       E             B     E
He's a flaming bell inside a tambourine,
         A       E             B        C#m7
He could play it all if he was just set free,
        A             E        B   E
Just to find what the people W.A.N.T.
        A             E        B   E
Just to find what the people W.A.N.T.
        A             E        B   E
Just to find what the people W.A.N.T.
