Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I thought it would be nice for folks to see the basic chords to this tune
at a glance, and publish it the ordinary manner as "chords".  
Make sure you have your CAPO ON 2ND FRET & take chord names into account.

VERSE 1/2
Am               Am7          Dsus2       Esus4   E7
  He deals the cards,    in a meditation,
Am/F             Am7          Dsus2       Esus4   E7
  and those who play,   never suspect,
Fmaj7                            Csus2 C5        E7   
    he doesnt play,      for the mo  - ney he wins,
Fmaj7         Esus2sus4         Am
    he doesnt play    for   respect.
Am               Am7             Dsus2     Esus4  E7
  He deals the cards looking for answers,
Am/F             Am7           Dsus2      Esus4   E7
    the sacred geometry of chance,
Fmaj7                        Csus2  C5    E7       
    a hidden law,       of a pro -  bable outcome,
Fmaj7           Esus2sus4     Am
    the numbers lead   a   dance.

CHORUS 1
Am                 Am7                 Dsus2        Esus4 E7
   I know that the spades,    are the swords of a soldier,
Am/F                Am7                  Dsus2      Esus4 E7
   I know that the clubs are weapons of war,
Fmaj7                             Csus2 C5            E7 
   I know that diamonds,      are mo -  ney for this art,
       Fmaj7         Esus2sus4     Am
   but thats not the shape of my heart.

VERSE 3
Am             Am7              Dsus2     Esus4  E7
   And he may play the jack of diamonds,  
Am/F        Am7              Dsus2     Esus4   E7
   he may lay the queen of spades,
Fmaj7                   Csus2  C5     E7
   he may conceal,    a king   in his hand,
Fmaj7         Esus2sus4       Am
    while the memory of it fades.

CHORUS 2 
Am                 Am7                Dsus2         Esus4   E7
   I know that the spades,    are the swords of a soldier,
Am/F               Am7                  Dsus2       Esus4   E7
   I know that the clubs are weapons of war,
Fmaj7                          Csus2 C5            E7   
   I know that diamonds,   are mo -  ney for this art,
       Fmaj7         Esus2sus4      Am        Am7     
   but thats not the shape   of my heart,
    Cmaj7         Esus2sus4               (Middle 8 start)
   thats not the shape              of my (heart

MIDDLE 8 ( HARMONICA SOLO )
Bm7 / / A/Bm7 / / G / / Em7 / F#7 / Bm7 / / A/Bm7 / / G / / Em7 / F#7 / 
G / / / / D / F#7 / G / C#/Em / Bm7 / / A/Bm7 / / G / / F#7 / / G / / / /

VERSE 4
Am           Am7              Dsus2    Esus4  E7
   And if I told you that I loved you,
Am/F          Am7                    Dsus2    Esus4  E7
   you maybe think theres something wrong,
Fmaj7                   Csus2 C5    E7   
   I'm not a man,    of two   many faces,
Fmaj7         Esus2sus4    Am
   the mask I wear   has   won.
Am                    Am7         Dsus2    Esus4  E7
   And all those that speak know nothing, 
Am/F           Am7                Dsus2    Esus4  E7
   and they'll find out to their cost,
Fmaj7                                  Csus2 C5   E&
   and those that curse their luck, in  too  many places,
Fmaj7              Esus2sus4  Am
   are those that fear  are  lost.

CHORUS 2 REPEAT CHORDS AS NORMAL BUT HOLD ON Esus2sus4 LEAD INTO:
     INTRO / OUTRO - SIMPLY FOLLOW ALL TABBED CHORDS AT START
                            END on Em
