Intro - 
    Am                    G
I'm broke and I'm hungry, hard up and I'm lonely
          Am              G                 F
I've been dancing on this killing floor for years
       Am                           G
Of the few things I am certain, the captain of my burden
    Am                  G              F     
I'm sorry doll, I could never stop the rain


Interlude - 
Am - G - Am - G - F  (x2)


Verse 1-
         Am                              G
Once you said I was your hero, you would dance with me on a dime
         Am                    G
We could spin this world right right right round,
    F
And catch back up on the flip side
            Am
I was gonna get this real big engine,
            G
I was gonna get them Broadway Stars
               Am         G
You were gonna be my Judy Garland,
              F
We were gonna share your Tin Man heart


Chorus -
C                       G                                  Am
There's a dirty wind blowin', there's a storm front comin' in
           F
There's an S.O.S. on the seas tonight
C                  G                      Am
Steady now, Steady now, soldier hold fast now
                        F       G         Am     G        Am     
It's heads or tails and heart attacks and broken dreams tonight


Interlude - 
Am - G - Am - G - F  


Verse 2 - 
           Am               G
We used to drive all night, all over town
        Am         G            F
We'd go waltzing Matilda when Matilda came around

And I'd sing them blues to you


Chorus -
C                       G                                  Am
There's a dirty wind blowin', there's a storm front comin' in
                         F
There's an S.O.S. on the seas tonight
C                  G                      Am
Steady now, Steady now, soldier hold fast now
                        F       G         Am     G        Am       
It's heads or tails and heart attacks and broken dreams tonight


Interlude - 
Am


Chorus -
C                       G                                  Am
There's a dirty wind blowin', there's a storm front comin' in
                         F
There's an S.O.S. on the seas tonight
C                  G                      Am
Steady now, Steady now, soldier hold fast now
                      F       G         Am     G        Am                  
It's heads or tails and heart attacks and broken dreams tonight
    F       G         Am     G
And heart attacks and broken dreams
  F      G     C    G       Am
Atlantis is my only dream tonight
