El Lute

NC
This is the story of El Lute,
a man who was born to be hunted,
like a wild animal. Because he was poor.
But he refused to accept his fate
and today his honor has been restored.

A
He was only nineteen
And was sentenced to die
For something, that somebody else did
D    Hm
And blamed on El Lute.
Then they changed it to life
And so he could escape
E
From there they chased him
And searched for him
A
Day and night all over Spain.
E
But the search was in vane
A
For El Lute.

Refrain:
A                    D
He had only seen the dark side of life
A
The man they called El Lute.
E
And he wanted a home just like you and like me
A
In the country where all would be free
D
Though he taught himself to read and to write
A
He didn't have El Lute.
E
He was one, who have dared to escape over night
D       A
They had to find El Lute.

Am
Soon the fame of his name
E              Dm
Spread like wild fire all over the land
With a price on his head
People still gave him bread
Am
And they gave him a hand
E
For they knew he was right
Am
And his fight was their fight.

No one gave him a chance
In the stain of those days
On boards every place
They have glued up the face
Of El Lute.
And he robbed where he could
Just like once Robin Hood
They finally caught him
And that seems the end
But they caught him in vane
Cause the change came for Spain
And El Lute.

Refrain:
He had only seen the dark side of life
The man they called El Lute.
And he wanted a home just like you and like me
In the country where all would be free
When the freedom really came to his land
And also to El Lute.
Now he walks in the light of a sunny new day
The man they called El Lute.

Rasputin
mp3

Intro: (Hm A G F#m) x 2, (Hm F#m) x 2, Hm Em F#7 Hm

Hm
There lived a certain man
In Russia long ago
Em
He was big and strong,
F#7              Hm
In his eyes a flaming glow.

Most people looked at him
With terror and with fear,
But to Moscow chicks
He was such a lovely dear.

Hm
He could preach the bible like a preacher
Em                 F#7
Full of ecstacy and fire.
Hm
But he also was the kind of teacher
Em    F#7     Hm
Women would desire.

Chorus:
H     D
Ra-Ra-Rasputin,
E            H             A
Lover of the Russian queen,
E         H
There was a cat that really was gone.
Ra-Ra-Rasputin,
Russia's greatest love machine,
It was a shame how he carried on.

(Hm F#m) x 2, Hm Em F#7 Hm

He ruled the Russian land
And never mind the Czar.
But the Kasachok
He danced really wunderbar.

In all affairs of state
He was the man to please.
But he was real great
When he had a girl to squeeze.

For the queen he was no wheeler dealer,
Though she'd heard the things he'd done.
She believed he was a holy healer
Who would heal her son.

Chorus.

(Spoken over the chords: (Hm A G A Hm) x 2)
But when his drinking and lusting
and his hunger for power
became known to more and more people,
the demands to do something
about this outrageous man
became louder and louder.

(Hm F#m) x 2, Hm Em F#7 Hm
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

"This man's just got to go!"
Declared his enemies,
But the ladies begged
"Don't you try to do it, please!"

No doubt this Rasputin
Had lots of hidden charms
Though he was a brute
They just fell into his arms.

Then one night some men of higher standing
Set a trap, they're not to blame.
"Come to visit us" they kept demanding
And he really came.

Ra-Ra-Rasputin,
Lover of the Russian queen
They put some poison into his wine.
Ra-Ra-Rasputin,
Russia's greatest love machine
He drank it all and he said "I feel fine".

Ra-Ra-Rasputin,
Lover of the Russian queen
They didn't quit, they wanted his head.
Ra-Ra-Rasputin,
Russia's greatest love machine
And so they shot him till he was dead.

Oh, those Russians.
