How To Play

CAPO: 3rd Fret
 
 
 
INTRO: G    C    G    C    G
 
 
Eddie had a few days coming
      C
So he took a Las Vegas jaunt
D
Out to the land of supply and demand
              G                D     G
Where you can get anything you want
 
 
 
He wasn't looking for true love
       C
No, he didn't believe in that stuff
D
Eddie Le Grande was a hard working man
                              G
Who just needed a little good luck
 
 
    C
His shoes were a little worn
    G                 Em
His hair was a little thin
      Am         C/B
Just another old sailor
C              D            G
Waiting on his ship to come in
 
 
 
Lily was a two time loser
              C
Who said that love was just a roll of the dice
    D
She acted real tough, said, "Once ain't enough
    G                       D        G
For me, I learned my lesson twice"
 
 
 
Deep in her heart lived a young girl
C
Dreaming a young girl's dream
         D
And that young girl was who Eddie ran into
                   G
Over by the slot machines
 
 
    C
Her face was a little pale
    G                  Em
Her dress was a little thin
        Am         C/B
Oh, but looking at her was like
C            D         G
Watching his ship come in
 
 
INSTRUMENTAL: G    C    G    C  D  G
 
 
 
Well, he bought her a cup of coffee
         C
With the quarters he meant to play
     D
They went for a bite and they talked all night
          G                        D     G
'Til they said what they needed to say
 
 
 
Then they found them an all night chapel
       C
With a heart shaped honeymoon suite
    D
And somewhere tonight in the neon light
                   G
Two hearts can't be beat
 
 
         C
And he's singing a little song
      G                 Em
She's grinning a little grin
    Am                   C/B
And they're holding each other
C              D         G
Watching their ship come in
 
 
    C
Her face was a little pale
    G                 Em
His hair was a little thin
            Am        C/B
But they're two young lovers
C              D         G
Watching their ship come in
     Am           C/B
Just holding each other
C              D         G
Watching their ship come in
