Uke-Song: "GET ME ROGER STONE", in the style of Neil Young

ORIGINAL SONG: "Heart of Gold" 1971, written and recorded by legendary Canadian songwriter-performer Neil Young.
For those interested, the original song is shown in ukulele-friendly form at the bottom of the post. BTW, if you play guitar or some other stringed instrument, it should be easy to transpose these charts to the key of your choice (or send me a note in the Comments section). 

PARODY COMPOSED:  Dr. G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, February 2019 (a sequel of 2 verses was added to the original concoction later in the month). To see the lyrics displayed more concisely without the chord-indications (and to return to the corresponding date's post on "Daily Illustrated Nonsense"), click HERE

Further details re the song's subject and his relationship with the narrator can be found at...
(i) a biographic Wikipedia article, "Roger Stone",
(ii) a news article about Stone's unusual behaviour following his indictment by the Mueller investigation on multiple charges, and 
(iii) an article about the highly-praised 2017 Netflix film "Get Me Roger Stone" that documents Stone's longterm role as advisor to Donald Trump. 

(to the tune of "Heart of Gold"  by Neil Young) 

UKULELE-FRIENDLY FORMAT (and guitar, mandolin, banjo etc., too!)
