Intro: D G-C  (4x) 
  
         D                          G C 
I seen a girl on a one-way corridor 
         D                      G  C  G  D 
Stealing down a wrong-way street 
                          G     C 
For all the world like an urban toreador 
        D         G C          G  D 
She had wheels on,  on her feet 
                G     C      D 
The cars do the usual dances 
                        G        C     G  D 
Same old cruise and the kerbside crawl 
                          G      C        D 
But the Rollergirl, she's taking chances 
                  G C          G 
Just love to see her take them all 
  
  
Chorus 1: 
A          
No fears alone at night 
C                   Em     A 
Sailing through the crowd 
                C 
In her ears the phones are tight 
                        A     D A D 
And the music's playing loud 
  
  
          G C               D 
Hallelujah,  here she comes 
            G C  G D 
Queen rollerball 
              G C               D 
And "Enchanté",  what can I say 
      G C   G D 
Care at all 
           G  C 
You know, she used to have to wait around 
                   D         G C  G  D 
She used to be the lonely one 
                   G C                D 
But now that she can skate around town 
              G C    G    
She's the only, only one 
  
  
Chorus 1: 
A          
No fears alone at night 
C                   Em     A 
Sailing through the crowd 
                C 
In her ears the phones are tight 
                        D     
And the music's playing loud 
  
  
Chorus 2: 
C   D    G                        Bm   Em7 
She gets rock n roll, on a rock n roll station 
                        D  C 
And a rock n roll dream 
                   Am           G 
She's making movies on location 
               D 
She don't know what it means 
        G                              Bm 
And the music maker wanna be the story 
        Em7                                          C 
And the story was whatever was the song, what it was 
          Am            G 
Rollergirl, don't worry 
              D     Em         C               G     A  D 
D.J. play the movies all night long, all night long 
  
  
    G        C                         D 
She tortures taxi drivers just for fun 
                            G C  G  D 
She like to read their lips 
                  G C                            D 
Says, "Toro, toro taxi, see ya tomorrow my son" 
                       G C              G  D 
She just let a big truck grease her hip,   ah! 
                          G  C         G D 
She got her own world in the city, hey 
                   D    G C       G  D 
You can't intrude on her, no, no, no 
                   G C            D 
She got her own world in the city 
                 G C       G    
The city's been so rude to her 
  
  
Chorus 1: 
A          
No fears alone at night 
C                   Em     A 
Sailing through the crowd 
                C 
In her ears the phones are tight 
        C               D     
And the music's playing loud

C   D    G                        Bm   Em7 
She gets rock n roll, on a rock n roll station

And a rock n roll dream 
                   Am           G 
She's making movies on location 
               D 
She don't know what it means 
        G                              Bm 
But the music maker wanna be the story 
        Em7                                           C
