I take my chances

Mary Chapin Carpenter


I TAKE MY CHANCES (Mary-Chapin Carpenter & Don Schlitz) ------------------------------------------------------- [Actually in C, so capo at the 5th fret; each chord is half a measure.]
G D C C G D C C [intro]
G D Em C I took a walk in the rain one day G D C C On the wrong side of the tracks G D Em C I stood on the rails till I saw that train G D C C Just to see how my heart would react Em Bm C C Now some people say that you shouldn't tempt fate Em D C C And for them I can not disagree G D Em C But I never learned nothing from playing it safe G G/B C C I say fate should not tempt me
(C) G D C C G D C C I take my chances; I don't mind working without a net (C) G D C C G D C C I take my chances; I take my chances every chance I get
I sat alone in the dark one night, tuning in by remote I found a preacher who spoke of the light but there was brimstone in his throat He'd show me the way according to him in return for my personal check I flipped the channel back to CNN, and I lit another cigarette
I take my chances; yes, forgiveness doesn't come with a debt I take my chances; I take my chances every chance I get
G D C C G D C C G D C C G D C C [guitar solo]
I've crossed lines of words and wire, and both have cut me deep I've been frozen out and I've been on fire, and the tears are mine to weep But I can cry until I laugh, or laugh until I cry So cut the deck right in half, I'll play from either side
I take my chances; I pay my dollar and I place my bet I take my chances; I take my chances every chance I get I take my chances; yeah, I don't cling to remorse or regret I take my chances; I take my chances every chance I get I take my chances...
[Repeat G D C C; end on G.]
[Concert ad-lib lyrics:] No remorse, no regrets I chewed another Nicorette I ordered up some crepes Suzette I found Elvis on the Internet I went camping with a young cadet He showed me his bayonet I looked at him and said, "you should get an Erector set" Who needs a boyfriend, you can get a pet
TAB:
The electric guitar actually plays this in C with no capo. These are the right notes; I'm not sure about the exact fingerings.

Here it is in G, if you want to play it with the capo on the 5th fret:
