                             ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES - Lenka
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tuning: Standard
Capo: 3

Taken from watching/listening to her performance in Singapore.

Chords start directly above the syllable Lenka sings them on. I hope you
can figure out what it means for chords to be between words. 

As well, there are a couple optional chords you can throw in
to keep the chords feeling fresh. X7 chords work well when you're
trying to lead the listener onward.
- Instead of D, try D7 (XX0212) or D7/F# (200212)
- Instead of Em, try Em7 (022033)


Intro: G Em G Em


G         Em                   
Roll, roll  with the punches   x2


            G
That really hurt me
       Em
Like a fist to the face
         G
I wasn't ready
      Em
To be knocked out of place
C
Suddenly everything I was sure of
   Am                              G        Em
Is sinking below the depths of the surface


         G
It's unexpected, 
   Em
it usually is
              G
When you're rejected
   Em
Or you take a hit
C
Suddenly everything's thrown in a spin
   Am
No time to grow a thicker skin
C                              D
What kind of situation am I in now?


[Chorus]
     G                           C
When life tries to knock all the wind out of you
              Em              D
You've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
   G                  C         
If all life offers is black and blue
              Em              D
You've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches


G Em G Em


       G       Em
Little weapons over the phone
             G            Em
They like to threaten the life that I know
         C
They say get over here and get into the ring
    Am                    G        Em
But I'm not really much a fighter
        G        Em
My mechanisms of defense are down
     G           Em
My resistance is out on the town
C
I was alarmed by your attack
     Am
This isn't a boxing match
            C                        D
But I'll be damned if I ever let you win


[Chorus]
     G                           C
When life tries to knock all the wind out of you
              Em              D
You've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
   G                  C         
If all life offers is black and blue
              Em              D
You've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches


     Bm              Em
When all I want is a little stability
     Bm               Em
Some time without any bruises
           C
You go and tell me the things that I don't want to hear
Am
Putting your fist into my ears
C
Filling me up with the dread and the fear 
Am
leaving you all in pieces
C
Suddenly everything's thrown in a spin
   Am
No time to grow a thicker skin
C                              D
What kind of situation am I in now?


[Chorus]
     G                           C
When life tries to knock all the wind out of you
              Em              D
You've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
   G                  C         
If all life offers is black and blue
              Em                    D
You've got to hold, hold, hold your head up high
     G                           C
When life tries to knock all the wind out of you
              Em              D
You've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
   G                  C         
If all life offers is black and blue
              Em              D
You've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches


Outro: G Em G Em
