Intro -x2-: C  F

  C                    F
I saw her today at a reception
  C                    F
a glass of wine in her hand
  C                          F
I knew she would meet her connection
       C                      F
At her feet was her footloose man


        C                         F
No, you can't always get what you want

And I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse
Singing, "We're gonna vent our frustration
If we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse"
Sing it to me now...


    C                         F

You get what you need  ahhhhhhah yeah



I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
To get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill
We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor, cherry red
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead"
I said to him


    C                         F
You can't always get what you want
    C                         F

           D                 F          
And if you try sometime, you might find
                 C           F   C   F
You get what you need  ahhhhhhah yeah

Oh yes! Woo!

You get what you need--yeah, oh baby!

Oh yeah!


I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practiced at the art of deception
Well I could tell by her blood-stained hands


    C                         F
You can't always get what you want
    C                         F
You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want
