[Verse 1]
    D
I’m what you’d call a bettin’ man
      C
And I live from pay to pay
      G                 C
I’m a high card stud of mongrel blood
      D
And a zero on the day
     D
Well I’m no sage nor soothsayer
    C
nor arbiter of truth
    G                C
I’m high on risk and low on temper
    D
And long in the tooth
         D
Well I'm long in the tooth


[Chorus 1]
    C     Em          Bm             D
I’m wide awake on the losing end of it
       G                  D              C
Better check my pride and take it on the chin
       G       D     Em
With a Whistle and a Grin
       C       D     G
With a Whistle and a Grin


[Interlude 1]
D D C Em 
D D Am G  
D D C Em 
D D C D D


[Verse 2]
  D
A buxom belle with a surefire tell
    C
Was barking up my tree
  G                 C
I couldn’t take her money
        D
She was making eyes at me
D
Oh so fine with a low neck line
C
Reckless fast and loose
    G              C
She giggled as she drew me in
    D
And tightened up the noose,
         D
Yeah she tightened up the noose


[Chorus 2]
    C     Em          Bm             D
I’m wide awake on the losing end of it
       G                  D              C
Better check my pride and take it on the chin
       G       D     Em
With a Whistle and a Grin
       C       D     G
With a Whistle and a Grin


[Interlude 2]
A A G Bm -
A A Em D  
A A Em Bm 
A A G A A 
D D
(This is essentially the same as Interlude 1, only with key changed to A and
 in the end going back to D.)


[Verse 3]
  D
I used the brain between my legs
      C
Threw in the kitchen sink
     G             C
That painted up bamboozler
        D
left me staring in my drink
   D
To plumb the depths inside my head
    C
but I can't seem to find
    G             C
The morale of the story
     D
or a little piece of mind
       D
Just a little piece of mind


[Chorus 3]
    C     Em          Bm             D
I’m wide awake on the losing end of it
       G                  D              C
Better check my pride and take it on the chin
       G       D     Em
With a Whistle and a Grin
       C       D     G
With a Whistle and a Grin
       G       D     Em
With a Whistle and a Grin
       C       D     G
With a Whistle and a Grin


[Outro]
