                             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: F Dm F Dm


F         Dm                   
Roll, roll  with the punches   x2


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


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


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


F Dm F Dm


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


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


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


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


Outro: F Dm F Dm
