Em               D                  C          D
He sticks to his guns, he takes the road as it comes
             C
He takes the shine off his shoes
Em             D                  C        D
He says it's a shame, you know it may be a game
         C
Ah but I won't play to lose     -----------8-7-------------------
                                ---------------10-8--------------

                                ---------------------------------

He's burning the grass, he takes up a glass

He swallows it neat     ---------------------------------
                        ---------------------------------
                        -9(10)~~~9---7(9)7-7(9)7-7(9)~~~-
                        ---------------------------------
                        ---------------------------------
                        ---------------------------------

He crosses the floor, he opens the door

He takes a sniff at the street

But he climbs on his horse, you know he feels no remorse

He just kicks it alive  ------------------------------------------

                        ------------------------------------------

His motor is fine, He takes it over the line

Until he's ready to dive        ----------------------
