Off to the Races  Lana Del Rey

So this tab's a bit hard to write out exactly where the chords change. But it basically
follows the same Em - Am - Em format for the verses and if you listen to the song you'll
be able to hear them. For better understanding I put the parts where it stays on Em
(where the chord continues) in brackets just so people know I wasn't leaving out a spot
there. I figured it out on piano and haven't played it on guitar but I would think it
would transpose pretty much the same, let me know any suggestions.
[Em]My old man is a bad man but
I can't deny the way he holds my hand
And he [Am]grabs me, he has me by my [Em]heart
He doesn't mind I have a Las Vegas past
He doesn't mind I have an LA crass way [Am]about me
He loves me with every [Em]beat of his cocaine heart
[(Em)]Swimming pool glimmering darling
White bikini off with my red nail polish
[Am]Watch me in the swimming pool bright blue ripples
You sit sippin' [Em]on your black Cristal, yeah
[(Em)]Light of my life, fire of my loins
Be a good baby, do what I want
[Am]Light of my life, fire of my loins
Give me them gold coins, [Em]gimme them coins
And I'm off to the [(Em)]races, cases
of Bacardi chasers, chasin' me all over town
Cuz he knows I'm [Am]wasted, facing
Time again on Riker's Island and I won't get out
Because I'm [D]crazy, baby I need you to come here and save me
I'm your little [C]scarlet, starlet singing in the garden
Kiss me on my open mouth
Ready for [Em]you
[(Em)]My old man is a tough man but
He got a soul as sweet as blood red jam
And he [Am]shows me, he knows me
Every [Em]inch of my tar black soul
He doesn't mind I have a flat broke down life
In fact he says he thinks it's why he might like [Am]about me
Admires me, the way I [Em]roll like a Rolling Stone
[(Em)]Likes to watch me in the glass room bathroom, Chateau Marmont
Slippin' on my red dress, puttin' on my makeup
[Am]Glass room perfume Cognac lilac [Em]fume
Says it feels like heaven to him
[(Em)]Light of his life, fire of his loins
Keep me forever, tell me you own me
[Am]Light of your life, fire of your loins
[Em]Tell me you own me, gimme them coins
And I'm off to the [(Em)]races, cases
of Bacardi chasers, chasin' me all over town
Cuz he knows I'm wasted, [Am]facing
Time again on Riker's Island and I won't get out
Because I'm [D]crazy, baby I need you to come here and save me
I'm your little [C]scarlet, starlet singing in the garden
Kiss me on my open mouth
Now I'm off to the [Em]races, laces
Leather on my waist is tight and I am fallin' down
I can see your [Am]face is shameless, Cipriani's basement
Love you but I'm going down
God I'm so [D]crazy, baby, I'm sorry that I'm misbehaving
I'm your little [C]harlot, starlet, Queen of Coney Island
Raising hell all over town
Sorry 'bout [Em]it
[Am]My old man is a thief and I'm gonna stay and pray with him 'til the [Em]end
But I [D]trust in the decision of the l[Am]ord to watch over us
Take him when he may, if he may
[Em]I'm not afraid to say that I'd [D]die without him
Who else is gonna [Am]put up with me this way?
I need you, I breathe you, I never leave you
[Em]They would rue the day I was [D]alone without you
[Am]You're lying with your gold chain on, cigar hanging from your lips
I said "Hon' you never looked so bea[Em]utiful as you [D]do now, my man."
And we're off to the [Em]races, places
Ready, set the gate is down and now we're goin' in
to Las [Am]Vegas pay us, Casino Oasis, honey it is time to spin
Boy you're so c[D]razy, baby, I love you forever not maybe
C Em, Am, D
You are my one true love, you are my one true love
You are my [C]one true love
Em, Am, D, C
