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

    C                           F   
You can't always get   what you want
    C                           F   
You can't always get   what you want
    C                           F   
You can't always get   what you want
            D                       F   
And if you try sometimes   you will find
                 C   
You get what you need
