Ace In The Hole  George Strait



[Bb]You've got to have an ace in the hole
A little [Eb7]secret that nobody [Bb]knows [Bb7]
[Eb]Life is a [Edim7]gamble, a [Bb/F]game we [Bb(#5)/F#]all          [G7#5]play
But you [C7]need to save something for a [F]rainy day[F7]
You've [Bb]got to learn to play your card right
If [Eb7]you expect to win in [Bb]life [Bb7]
Don't [Eb6]put it all [Edim7]on the line [Bb/F]for just one [G7#5]roll
       [B7]C7             [E7]F7         [A]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#

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.
