	        This is your classic boogie rhythm song. Chords 
Are as listed? 
Ladies and gentlemen, attention please 
Come in close so everyone can see  
        D                                   A  
I got a tale to tell, a listen don't cost a dime  
           E                                       A 
And if you believe that we're gonna get along just fine    
Now I've been travelin' all around  
I heard trouble's come to your town  
     D                                              A 
I've got a little somethin' guaranteed to ease your mind  
          E                                                  A   
It's call Snake Oil y'all, it's been around for a long, long time    
Kick in distortion: 
Say, your crops'll burn if it don't rain soon  
Ain't seen a drop since the tenth of June  
Well I can open up the sky, people have no fear  
If you ain't impressed yet, just tell me what you wanna hear    
Well you lost your farm so you moved to town  
You get a job, they shut the factory down  
Now you sit around all day long feelin' sad and blue  
You need Snake Oil y'all, tell you what I'm gonna do 
      D                                A 
I can heal the sick and I can mend the lame  
        D                                   E 
And the blind shall see again, it's all the same    
Well ain't your President good to you  
Knocked 'em dead in Libya, Grenada too  
Now he's taking his show a little further down the line  
'Tween me and him people, you're gonna get along just fine
