Roulette - Bruce Springsteen

(Drums only)

Dm               C                Bb                 A

Dm               C                Bb                 A       Dm
                                                               We left...
                            C    Bb
We left the toys out in the yard
                            A                      Dm
I took my wife and kids and left my home unguarded
                                 C   Bb
We packed what we could into the car
                  A              Dm
No one here knows how it started

Suddenly everything was just so out of control
Now I want some answers, mister, I need to know
I hear all the talk but I don't know what you're sayin'

But I think I got a good idea of the game that you're playin'

C             Dm
Roulette, that's the name
C             Bb
Roulette, that's the game now
C                 Dm
Roulette, I don't know what they're sayin'
C             Bb                 | F C | Dm
Roulette, and everybody's playin'

                       C                                  Bb
I grew up here on this street where nothin' moves, just a strange breeze
                   A                Dm
In a town full of worthless memories
There's a shadow in my backyard
I've got a house full of things that I can't touch
Well all those things won't do me much good now
I was a fireman out at Riker's, I did my job
Mister, I've been cheated, I feel like I've been robbed
I'm the big expendable, my life's just cancelled, null and void

But what are you gonna do about your new boy

C             Dm
Roulette, you're playin' with my life
C              Bb
Roulette, with my children and my wife
C                Dm
Roulette, every day the stakes get bigger
C              Bb                          | F C |
Roulette, a different finger on the trigger

Am             Em             G                 D              F

G                 Dm                C

Dm                     C           Bb
Down by the river that talks the night speaks in searchlights
     A                     Dm
And shortwave radios squawk,
The police patrol the streets
But I've left behind the man I used to be,
Everything he believed in and all that belonged to me
I tried to find my way out to somewhere where I thought it'd be safe
They stopped me at the roadblock they put up on the interstate
They put me in detention but I broke loose and then I ran
  Gm                                                                          Bb
They said they want to ask me a few questions but I think they had other plans
Now I don't know who to trust and I don't know what I can believe

They say they want to help me but with the stuff they keep on sayin'

I think those guys just wanna keep on playin'

C           Dm
Roulette, with my life
C           Bb
Roulette, with my kids and my wife
C               Dm
Roulette, the bullet's in the chamber
C                Bb
Roulette, who's the unlucky stranger
C              Dm
Roulette, surprise, you're dead
C              Bb
Roulette, the gun's to your head
C                      Dm
Roulette, the bullet's spinning in the chamber
C                   Bb
Roulette, pull the trigger, feel the click
F            C
No further danger

 A4 Dm C  Bb A  F  Am Em G  D
