New Speedway Boogie Chords
E                                          G           D       E
Please don't dominate the rap Jack, if you got nothin' new to say.
    E                                              G             D     E
And if you please, don't back up the tracks, this train's got to run today.

 E
I spent a little time on the mountain, spent a little time on the hill.

E                                 G             D            A
Like some say, better run away; others say you better stand still.

    E                                      G       D             A
Now I don't know but I been told that it's hard to run with the weight of gold  
       E                                    G       D
On the other hand, I've heard it said, it's just as hard with the
						A			
						weight of lead
			 

E                                G          D          E
Who can deny, who can deny, it's not just a change of style.
E                                      G          D     E
One step done and another begun, and I wonder how many miles.
								

  E
I spent a little time on the mountain, spent a little time on the hill,
E                                       G         D       A
I saw things getting out of hand but I guess they always will.
      E                                       G           D         A
Well, I don't know, but I've been told in the heat of the sun a man died of cold. 
E                                         G       D            A
Keep on comin' or stand and wait with the sun so dark and the hour so late.


E                                     G         D          E
You can't overlook the lack, Jack, of any other highway to ride,
     E                                   G        D        E
It's got no signs or dividing lines, and very few rules to guide.
E                                          G           D
Now I don't know but I've been told if the horse don't pull you got to 
A
carry the load.
E                                      G          D      A
I don't know whose back`s that strong; maybe find out before too long.

E                                                                 G
One way or another, one way or another, one way or another, this darkness 
    D      G 
has got to give.

About the artist behind New Speedway Boogie Chords:

The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in the San Francisco Bay Area.[1] The band was known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country, jazz, psychedelia, space rock[2][3] and gospel—and for live performances of long musical improvisation.[1][4] "Their music," writes Lenny Kaye, "touches on ground that most other groups don't even know exists."[5]

The Grateful Dead's fans, some of whom followed the band from concert to concert for years, are known as Deadheads and have been renowned for their dedication to the band's music.[1][4] Many fans referred to the band simply as "the Dead". As of 2003, the remaining band members who had been touring under the name "The Other Ones" changed their official group name to "The Dead". Deadheads continue to use the nickname to refer to all versions of the band.[6]

Their musical influences varied widely; in concert recordings or on record albums one can hear psychedelic rock (in the late sixties), the blues, rock nuggets, country-western, bluegrass, country-rock, and although they rarely played jazz music, the band certainly borrowed for their music the kind of long improvisatory sequences that jazz artists such as Charles Mingus and John Coltrane perfected in the 1950s and 1960s. These various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole that made the Grateful Dead "the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world."[7]
