Intro: E5-D-C#-C5
[E5] Won't you take my hand
[D] Won't you be my friend
[C#] Take my advice, go aw[C5]ay
[E5] When the days get short and the [D]chips are down
[C#] Will you be there, will you [C5]stick around
And if thou shalt give
Thou shalt be deceived
This traveling band was not well received
No open arms or reception lines
Just handlebars wearing five point stars
[Em] Am I living in your [B]dream
[G] We got the guns, we got the [Asus2]guns[B]
[G] A thousand to one, a thousand to [Asus2]one[B]
He's the [E5]man, he's the [D]man
He's the [C5]man who loved life
[F]Served by different stories
Am I living in your [C]dreams
[F]Pretty metal green
Can I ride upon your [C]wings so [Em]free
In the canyon walls there's a trusty lot
The stakes were high
The sun was hot
You can rest assured as casinos rise
Buzz around my ears like the dragonflies
Am I living in your dream
We've got the guns, we've got the guns
A thousand to one, a thousand to one
He's the man, he's the man
He's the man who loved life
Served from different shores
Am I living in your dream
Pretty metal green
Am I living in your dream, so real
Heard a million stories
Am I living in your dream
Pretty metal green
Am I living in your dream
Outro on F/C progression, end on Em
