VERSE 1 SPOKEN
F#                                          C#
I don't wanna talk - about the things we've gone through

Nothing more to say - no more ace to play

The winner takes it all    -     the loser standing small

Beside the victory    -  that's her destiny 

VERSE 2  
              F#                          C#
I was in your arms      thinking I be - longed there 
                  G#m                      C#
I figured it made sense -   building me a fence 
              F#                              C#
Building me a home    -    thinking I'd be strong there 
            G#m                              C#

The gods may throw a dice     -      their minds as cold as ice 
                     G#m                          C#
And someone way down here     -     loses someone dear 
                     F#       A#7                      D#m    D#
The winner takes it all       -      the loser has to fall 
                     G#m                             C#
It's simple and it's plain    -     why should I complain.

                 G#m                                C#
Does it feel the same    -     when she calls your name? 
                     F#                              C#
Somewhere deep in – side     -      you must know I miss you

G    Em     Am    D


VERSE 1 SPOKEN
G                                           D
I don't wanna talk - about the things we've gone through 
                    Am                  D
Though it's hurting me - now its hist - ory 
                     G                             D
I've played all my cards - and that's what you've done too 
                Am                    D
Nothing more to say - no more ace to play 


CHORUS
                    G     B7                          Em     E
The winner takes it all    -     the loser standing small 
               Am                       D
Beside the victory    -  that's her destiny 

VERSE 2  
              G                           D
I was in your arms      thinking I be - longed there 
                  Am                       D
I figured it made sense -   building me a fence 
              G                               D
Building me a home    -    thinking I'd be strong there 
            Am                               D
But I was a fool     -      playing by the rules 

CHORUS
                     G        B7                           Em     E
The gods may throw a dice     -      their minds as cold as ice 
                     Am                           D
And someone way down here     -     loses someone dear 
                     G        B7                       Em     E
The winner takes it all       -      the loser has to fall 
                     Am                              D
It's simple and it's plain    -     why should I complain. 

 VERSE 3
                      G                               D
But tell me does she kiss      -      Like I used to kiss you? 
                 Am                                 D
Does it feel the same    -     when she calls your name? 
                     G                               D
Somewhere deep in – side     -      you must know I miss you 
               Am                                 D
But what can I say        -       rules must be obeyed 

CHORUS
                   G        B7                          Em     E
The judges will decide      -       the likes of me a - bide 
                  Am                               D
Spectators of the show      -      always staying low 
                    G       B7                   Em       E
The game is on a – gain     -      a lover or a friend
                  Am                                    D
A big thing or a small      -      the winner takes it all

The winner takes it all.............
G                Em
So the winner, takes it all 
Am             D
And the loser, has to fall
G              Em
Cold as ice, throw a dice
Am                       D
Way down here,.......   someone dear
G
Takes it all              and fade

Ebm should be D#m and Abm should be G#m.

Ebm AND D#m ARE THE SAME NOTES WRITTEN DIFF
Abm AND G#m ARE THE SAME NOTES WRITTEN DIFF

thanks for your comment by the way, its nice when someone takes the time to Rate a song and to help with corrections.
Not really sure of the music rules in relation to naming a note either Ebm or D#m.

Once again, thanks for your interest, keep strumming
