I never bought a lotto ticket, I never parked in anyone's space
The banks they're like cathedrals, I guess casinos took their place
Love [A]come on down, don't wake her she'll come [E]around
Chance is a kind of religion
Where you're damned for plain hard luck
I never did see that movie, never did read that book
Love [A]come on down, let my numbers come [E]around
[C#m]Don't know if I can [F#m]hold on
[C#m]Don't know if I'm [A]that strong
[C#m]Don't know if I can [F#m]wait that long
[C#m]Till the colours come flashing and the [A]lights go on
Then will there be no time for sorrow?
 
 1-----------------------------------|

 5----11-------9---------------9-----|

Then will there be no time for shame?

Though I [A]can't say why, I know I've [E]got to believe

We'll go [C#m]driving in that [F#m]pool

It's who you [C#m]know that gets you [A]through

The gates of the playboy mansion....a donation the playbay mansion...
Then will there be no time of sorrow?
Then will there be no time for shame?
Then will there be no tome of sorrow?
Then will there be no time for shame?
