For many years my brother lived in Hampstead, NW London, not too far from St John’s Wood. The land of ancient forests and….Abbey Road Studios. Needless to say, I enjoyed visits with him.

And of course, I had him take one of those mandatory touristy shots of me crossing the world’s most famous zebra crossing.

These two songs are special because they are products of Britain’s most famous bands. One mentions St. John’s Wood (and is very easy to play) whilst (ha) the other is possibly the world’s most famous medley from the album named after the studio and road itself.

The photos are awesome – thanks to Charlie Butti & Iain MacMillan

Play Play With Fire:

Rolling Stones

Em
Well, you’ve got your diamonds
Em
And you’ve got your pretty clothes
Em
And the chauffeur drives your cars
Em
You let everybody know
Em G D G
But don’t play with me
C Em
‘Cause you’re playing with fire
Em
Your mother she’s an heiress
Em
Owns a block in Saint John’s Wood
Em
And your father’d be there with her
Em
If he only could
Em G D G
But don’t play with me
C Em
‘Cause you’re playing with fire
Em
Your old man took her diamonds
Em
And tiaras by the score
Em
Now she gets her kicks in Stepney
Em
Not in Knightsbridge anymore
Em G D G
But don’t play with me
C Em
‘Cause you’re playing with fire
Em
Now you’ve got some diamonds
Em
And you will have some others
Em
But you’d better watch your step, girl
Em
Or start living with your mother
Em G D G
But don’t play with me
C Em
‘Cause you’re playing with fire
Em G D G
But don’t play with me
C Em
‘Cause you’re playing with fire
