Deep Purple - "Speed King"
======================================
(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice) from "Deep Purple in Rock" (1970)

     "Here are the basics to Deep Purple's kick-ass "Speed King". I didn't 
      transcribe the solos mainly because I didn't have the patience to figure 
      out (just the beginning). And Blackmore would feel very bad if he drop by 
      your gig and hear you playing just like in the album. Feel free to do your 
      own stuff."

->LYRICS:

1st VERSE:
Good Golly, said little Miss Molly
When she was rockin' in the house of blue light
Tutti Frutti was oh so rooty
When she was rockin' to the east and west
Lucille was oh so real
When she didn't do her daddies will
Come on baby, drive me crazy - do it, do it

CHORUS:
Cause I'm a speed king you go to hear me sing
Yeah, I'm a speed king see me fly

2nd VERSE:
Saturday night and I just got paid
Gonna fool about ain't gonna save
People gonna rock, people gonna roll
Gonna have a party to save my soul
Hard headed woman and a soft hearted man
They been causing trouble since it all began
Take a little rice take a little beans
Gonna rock and roll down to New Orleans

3rd VERSE:
Good Golly, said little Miss Molly
When she was rockin' in the house of blue light
Tutti Frutti was oh so rooty
When she was rockin' to the east and west
Hard headed woman and a soft hearted man
They been causing trouble since it all began
Take a little rice take a little beans
Gonna rock and roll down to New Orleans
