(Em7) (Dm7) 
(Am) (Asus2) (F) (Em) (C) (D) (C) 
(Am) "It's a beggars life, " said the Queen of Spades 
"But dont tell it to the poor man 
''Cause he's (F)got to kill for every thrill, the (Em)best he can"  (C) (D) (C) 

(Am)Everywhere around me, I see jealousy and mayhem 
Because (F)no men have all their peace of mind, to (Em)carry them, (C) (D) (C) 
Well (Dm)I don't really care, if it's (Em)wrong or if it's right 
But un(F)til my ship comes in, I live (Em7)night (Dm7)by (Am)night 

(Am) (Asus2) (F) (Em) (C) (D) (C) 

When the (Am)joker tried to tell me, 
I could cut it in this rube town, 
When he (F)tried to hang that sign on me, I said "(Em)take it down" (C) (D) (C) 

When the (Am)dawn patrol got to tell you twice 
They don't do it with a shotgun 
Yes, I'm (F)cashin' in this ten-cent life, for an(Em)other one (C) (D) (C) 
Well (Dm)I ain't got the heart, to (Em)lose another fight, 
So un(F)til my ship comes in, I live (Em7)night (Dm7)by (Am)night 

(Em7) (Dm7) (Em7) (Dm7) 
(Am) (Asus2) (F) (Em) (C) (D) (C) 
(Am) (Asus2) (F) (Em) (C) (D) (C) 

Well (Dm)I don't really care if it's (Em)wrong or if it's right 
But un(F)til my ship comes in, I live (Em7)night (Dm7)by (Am)night. 

(Am) (Asus2) (F) (Em) (C) (D) (C) 
(Am) (Asus2) (F) (Em) (C) (D) (C)
