ace in the hole George Strait
Ace In The Hole ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ as performed by George Strait notated by Greg Vaughn (email@example.com) As written in Bb, this song may be difficult for some of you (I still can't make all the chord switches smoothly) so I've included a simplified version in A. You can play these chords along with the recording if you capo the first fret. A Bb You've got to have an ace in the hole D7 A A7 Eb7 Bb Bb7 A little secret that nobody knows D D#dim7 A/E F#7 Eb Edim7 Bb/F Bb(#5)/F# G7#5 Life is a gamble, a game we all play B7 E E7 C7 F F7 But you need to save something for a rainy day A Bb You've got to learn to play your card right D7 A A7 Eb7 Bb Bb7 If you expect to win in life D D#dim7 A/E F#7 Eb6 Edim7 Bb/F G7#5 Don't put it all on the line for just one roll B7 E7 A C7 F7 Bb(x13331) You've got to have an ace in the hole 2: If you're headed down a one way street And you're not sure it's the way you wanna go In money or love or all the above Have a little more than what you show When life deals out a surprise Have a few surprises of your own No matter what you do, no matter where you go You've got to have an ace in the hole Chords I use (but they are by no means the only choice): I still am not comfortable with the Bb(#5)/F# Bb Eb7 Bb7 Eb Edim7 Bb/F G7#5 1111116 :111116 1111116 :111116 |||1||6 :|||116 ::11113 |||2|| :||||| |||2|| :||||| |2|||| :||2|| ::|34| |34||| :|3|4| |3|||| :|333| ||3|4| :34||| C7 F F7 Eb6 I often use plain Eb :111113 111111 111111 |:1||:10 instead of Eb6. :||||| |||2|| |||2|| 2:||3: :|3|4| |34||| |3|||| |:|4|: To really get the Western Swing sound you want to hit the bass notes on beats 1 and 3 and strum the whole chord on 2 and 4, but muffle it quickly to get a percussive BOOM-chick BOOM-chick sound. If any of you are more adventurous and would like some "swing-ier" sounding chords, I've got some suggestions from Bo Parker that I'll be happy to share with you.
