Intro: E5-D-C#-C5

E5
  Won't you take my hand
D
  Won't you be my friend
C#                     C5
  Take my advice, go away
E5                                D
  When the days get short and the chips are down
C#                            C5
  Will you be there, will you stick around

And if thou shalt give
Thou shalt be deceived
This traveling band was not well received
No open arms or reception lines
Just handlebars wearing five point stars

Em                    B
  Am I living in your dream
G                             Asus2  B
  We got the guns, we got the guns
G                                  Asus2  B
  A thousand to one, a thousand to one
         E5            D
He's the man, he's the man
         C5
He's the man who loved life

F
Served by different stories
                    C
Am I living in your dreams
F
Pretty metal green
                     C        Em
Can I ride upon your wings so free

In the canyon walls there's a trusty lot
The stakes were high
The sun was hot
You can rest assured as casinos rise
Buzz around my ears like the dragonflies

Am I living in your dream
We've got the guns, we've got the guns
A thousand to one, a thousand to one
He's the man, he's the man
He's the man who loved life

Served from different shores
Am I living in your dream
Pretty metal green
Am I living in your dream, so real

Heard a million stories
Am I living in your dream
Pretty metal green
Am I living in your dream

Outro on F/C progression, end on Em
