{Riff 1 keeps going}
I never bought a lotto ticket, I never parked in anyone's space
The banks they're like cathedrals, I guess casinos took their place

{Start Riff 2 - Keeps going}
     A                                        E
Love come on down, don't wake her she'll come around
Chance is a kind of religion
Where you're damned for plain hard luck
I never did see that movie, never did read that book

     A                                 E
Love come on down, let my numbers come around
{Stop Riff 1 & 2}
C#m                 F#m
Don't know if I can hold on

C#m               A
Don't know if I'm that strong

C#m                 F#m
Don't know if I can wait that long

C#m                                    A
Till the colours come flashing and the lights go on

                E {Start Riff 2 & 1}
Then will there be no time for sorrow?
