How To Play

Verse 1:
B                           B
  Far from the evergreen of old Assam.
B                              B                E
  Far from the rainfall on the trails of old Saigon.
                                   E
  Straight from the poster town of scorn and Ritz.
B                                 B
  To bring you the wilder side of golden glitz.
 
Chorus 1:
F#          (G#m)            E           (F#)
  Run, Neon Tiger, there's a lot on your mind.
F#                      (B)     G#m                     (G#)
  They promised just to pet you,  but don't you let 'em get you.
 E     (B)      F#
Away, away, oh, one.
          E           (F#)       B         B
Under the heat of the south-west sun.
 
Verse 2:
B                                  B
  You took to the spotlight like a diamond ring.
B                                    B
  They came from the woodwork in the hopes they might
  E                                  E
redeem themselves for poor decisions
       B      B
to win big.
 
Chorus 2:
F#          (G#m)            E           (F#)
  Run, Neon Tiger, there's a lot on your mind.
F#                       (B)      G#m                     (G#)
  They'll strategise and name you,  but don't you let 'em tame you.
       E       (B)      F#
You're far too pure and bold
              E             (B)       F#
to suffer the strain of the hangman’s hold.
 
BRIDGE
B                                         B
  I don't wanna be kept, I don't wanna be caged, I don't wanna be damned, oh hell.
B                                          B
  I don't wanna be broke, I don't wanna be saved, I don't wanna be SOL.
E                                           E
Give me rolling hills so tonight can be the night that I stand among a thousand thrills.
B                                                 B
  Mister cut me some slack, 'cos I don't wanna go back, I want a new day and age.
F#                      E
Come on girls and boys, everyone make some noise!

Chorus 3:
F#          (G#m)            E             (F#)
  Run, Neon Tiger, there's a price on your head.
F#                          (B)     G#m                  (G#)
  They'll hunt you down and gut you,  I'll never let 'em touch you.
E     (B)       F#
Away, away, oh, one.
                 E    (F#)   G#m
I’m begging you, Neon Tiger, run.
          E    (F#)          E    (F#)
Under the heat of, under the heat of,
          E           (F#)       B
under the heat of the south-west sun.
 
OUTRO
           B

There's a lot on your mind.
