|---|---------------------------------------|
|---|---------------------------------------|

Em               D                  C          D
He sticks to his guns, he takes the road as it comes
             C
He takes the shine off his shoes
Em             D                  C        D
He says it's a shame, you know it may be a game
         C
Ah but I won't play to lose     -----------8-7-------------------
                                ---------------10-8--------------
                                -9---7/9-------------------7-9-7-
                                ------------------------10-------
                                ---------------------------------
                                ---------------------------------

He's burning the grass, he takes up a glass

He swallows it neat     ---------------------------------
                        ---------------------------------
                        -9(10)~~~9---7(9)7-7(9)7-7(9)~~~-
                        ---------------------------------
                        ---------------------------------
                        ---------------------------------

He crosses the floor, he opens the door

He takes a sniff at the street

-5-7---5-7-----------------5-7---5-7---7-9---12---
--------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------

But he climbs on his horse, you know he feels no remorse

He just kicks it alive  ------------------------------------------
                        ------------------------------------------
                        --------------------7(9)------7------7(9)-

                        -7/10-------------------------------------
                        ------------------------------------------

His motor is fine, He takes it over the line

Until he's ready to dive        ----------------------

Here are the words that get sung in the chorus: "Did she tell him that he's crazy, did she say listen baby, I'm your wife....did she tell him that he's crazy, gambling with his life?" Merci beaucoup for putting the time and effort into this -- I like having the chords and tab combined, actually.
