Leaving Las Vegas  Sheryl Crow

[G]  [/A] Li[/B]fe [Csus2]springs e[G/B]ternal[A7sus]     on a gaudy [Dsus]neon [D]street
Not that I care at all
I spent the best part of my losing streak in an Army Jeep
For what I can't recall
Oh I'm banging on my tv set and I check the odds and I, and I place my bet
I pour a drink and I pull the blinds - I wonder what I'll find
I'm leaving Las Vegas, the lights so bright
Palm sweat blackjack on a Saturday night
Leaving Las Vegas
Leaving for good, for good
I'm leaving for good
I'm leaving for good
Used to be I could drive up to Barstow for the night
Find some crossroad trucker to demonstrate his might
But these days it seems nowhere is far enough away
So I'm leaving Las Vegas today
I'm leaving Las Vegas, oh, the lights so bright
Blackjack on a Saturday night
I'm leaving Las Vegas
I'm leaving for good
I'm leaving for good
For [Em]good
I'm standing in the middle of the desert
Waiting [G]for my ship to come in[G/B]
[Em]  But now no joker, no jack, no king
[Csus2]  Can take this loser hand and[D] make it win
I'm leaving Las Vegas, oh
I'm leaving Las Vegas for good
For good
I quit my job as a dancer at the Lido des Girls
Dealing blackjack until one or two
Such a muddly line between the things you want
And the things you have to do
I'm leaving Las Vegas, the lights so bright
Palm sweat blackjack on a Saturday night
Leaving Las Vegas
I'm leaving for good
I'm leaving for good
Oh, I'm leaving Las Vegas, the lights so bright
Palm sweat blackjack on a Saturday night
I'm leaving Las Vegas
I'm leaving for good
I'm leaving for good
Oh, I'm leaving Las Vegas, the lights so bright on a Saturday night
G Csus2 G Csus2 etc
I'm leaving Las Vegas
And I won't be back, no I won't be back
Not this time

The bass, acoustic and electric guitars each play repeating parts throughout
the most of this.
There is a two bar drum introduction and then the bass comes in with

(Palm muting throughout)
For the chorus, the electric plays more - without the palm muting and
possibly uses fuller chords.
The bass line for the bridge section goes like this

The acoustic and electric strum the chords over this - I can't be bothered
typing these parts up (sorry)
