Intro:  D   G  C    D   G  C  G 
        D   G  C    D   G  C  G 
   
            D                          G  
   I seen a girl on a one-way corridor 
C             D               G  C6   G  
   Stealing down a wrong way street  
D                            G     C  
   For all the world like an urban toreador  
               D         G C          
   She had the wheels on - on her feet  
G       D                     C  
   Well the cars do the usual dances  
D                          G        C6  
   Same old cruise and the kerbside crawl  
G  D                        G      C  
   But the rollergirl she's taking chances  
D                    G     C               G  
   They just love to see her take them all  

         A           G              
           No fears alone at night  
                 Em/B                G  
           She's sailing through the crowd  
         A                 C  
           In her ears the phones are so tight  
                   G               A    D/G     A  
           And the music's playing loud  

D           G  
   Hallelujah   
C                 D               G    C6  G    
   Here she comes queen rollerball  
D           C  
   Enchante what can I say  
   D            G    C  
   I don't care      at all  
G  D                 G          C  
   You know she used to have to wait around  
                      D           G    C6  G  
   She used to be the lonely one  
   D                    G      C  
   But now that she can skate around the town  
   D              G   C          G  
   She's the only one   only one  
  
                A            G              
           No fears alone at night  
                 Em/B                G  
           She's sailing through the crowd  
        A                  C  
           In her ears the phones are so tight  
                   C               D  
           And the music's playing loud

           On location  
               G          D  
           She don't know what it means  

                   G                                G/B
