Em               D                  C          D 
He sticks to his guns, he takes the road as it comes 
             C 
He takes the shine off his shoes 
Em             D                  C        D 
He says it's a shame, you know it may be a game 
         C

                                --------------------------------- 
 
He's burning the grass, he takes up a glass 
 
He swallows it neat     --------------------------------- 
                        --------------------------------- 
                        -9(10)~~~9---7(9)7-7(9)7-7(9)~~~-

                        --------------------------------- 
 
He crosses the floor, he opens the door 
 
He takes a sniff at the street
