How To Play

VERSE 1
 
            G
I'm back on dry land once again 
     Gmaj7
Opportunity awaits me like a rat in the drain 
Dm                   G7                     C
   We're all hunting honey with money to burn 
       Cm                         G/B                   Am7   D   Daug
Just a short time to show you the tricks that we've learned 
 
VERSE 2
 
       G
If the boys all behave themselves here 
             Gmaj7
Well there's pretty young ladies and beer in the rear 
Dm                  G7                       C
   You won't need a gutter to sleep in tonight 
       Cm                        G/B           Am7   D   Daug
Oh the prices I charge here will see you alright 
 
VERSE 3
 
       G
So she lays down beside me again 
   Gmaj7
My sweet painted lady, the one with no name 
Dm                     G7           C
Many have used her and many still do 
          Cm                       G/B           Am7   D
There's a place in the world for a woman like you 
 
CHORUS
 
Daug   G             F#
Oh,    sweet painted lady 
F                          E7
Seems it's always been the same 
Am7              D
Getting paid for being laid 
G                            Am7   D
Guess that's the name of the game 
  G               F#
Oh sweet painted lady 
F                          E7
Seems it's always been the same 
Am7              D
Getting paid for being laid 
G                            Am7   D   G   Daug
Guess that's the name of the game, oh
 
VERSE 4
 
                     G
Forget us we'll have gone very soon 
        Gmaj7
Just forget we ever slept in your rooms 
    Dm                           G7          C
And we'll leave the smell of the sea in your beds 
      Cm                    G/B              Am7   D   Daug
Where love's just a job and nothing is said 
 
VERSE 5
 
       G
So she lays down beside me again 
   Gmaj7
My sweet painted lady, the one with no name 
Dm                     G7           C
Many have used her and many still do 
          Cm                       G/B           Am7   D   Daug
There's a place in the world for a woman like you

Oh sweet painted lady 
F                          E7
Seems it's always been the same 
Am7              D
Getting paid for being laid 
G                            Am7   D
Guess that's the name of the game, oh
