Riff inicial (Este riff é tocado quatro vezes como uma intro. A bateria entra na segunda vez e 
a harmoia e Hammond veem na terceira vez. Apesar de o riff soar como algo diferente nas 
notas que ligam os versos, acho que é por aí mais ou menos que se toca):

 Peter Pumpkinhead came to town 
D                    G 
 Spreading wisdom and cash around 
D                    G 
 Fed the starving and housed the poor 
D                  G 
 Showed the Vatican what gold's for 
 
G       A             Bm 
 But he made too many enemies 
G       A                Bm 
 Of the people who would keep us on our knees 
G           A 
 Hooray for Peter Pumpkin 
G           Gm/Bb A/C#   D   D/C#  D/B  D/A  G  G/F#  Em  A 
 Who'll pray for Peter Pumpkinhead
 
D                  G
 Peter Pumpkinhead pulled them all
D                  G
 Emptied churches and shopping malls
D                      G
 Where he spoke it would raise the roof
D                  G
 Peter Pumpkinhead told the truth

G       A             Bm 
 But he made too many enemies 
G       A                Bm 
 Of the people who would keep us on our knees 
G           A 
 Hooray for Peter Pumpkin

D                  G
 Peter Pumpkinhead put to shame
D                     G
 Governments who would slur his name
D                     G
 Plots and sex scandals failed outright
D                   G
 Peter merely said, "Any kind of love is all right"

G       A             Bm 
 But he made too many enemies 
G       A                Bm 
 Of the people who would keep us on our knees 
G           A 
 Hooray for Peter Pumpkin

D                  G
 Peter Pumpkinhead was too good
D                  G
 Had him nailed to a chunk of wood
D                   G
 He died grinning on live TV
D                       G
 Hanging there he looked a lot like you, and an awful lot like me! 

G       A             Bm 
 But he made too many enemies 
G       A                Bm 
 Of the people who would keep us on our knees 
G           A 
 Hooray for Peter Pumpkin

  G        G/F#      C                A/C#       D 
Oh my, oh my, don't it make you want to cry, oh!
