Ace in the Hole

A7              Bm     A                    Bm   A7
Some people say Jesus that's the ace in the hole
            Bm      A7                     Bm  A7
But I never met the man so l don't really know
             Bm      A7               Bm
Maybe some Christmas if I'm sick and alone
A7                 Bm    A7
He will look up my number
Call me on the phone and say:
    G/D  Bm  F#m
    Hey, boy,   where you been so long
G#m7-5
    Don't you know me
Dm6/F                   A7   Bm A7 Bm A7 Bm A7 Bm A7
    I'm your ace in the hole

A7          Bm        A                   Bm
Two hundred dollars, that's my ace in the hole
A7                       Bm
When I'm down, dirty and desperate
A7                       Bm    A7
That's my emergency bank roll (I got...)
            Bm       A7                        Bm
Two hundred dollars, that's the price on the street
A7                    Bm   A7
If you wanna get some quality
That's the price you got to meet (and the man says...)
    G/D  Bm     F#m
    Hey, Junior,   where you been so long
G#m7-5
    Don't you know me
Dm6/F                   A7   Bm A7 Bm A7 Bm A7 Bm A7
    I'm your ace in the hole

A7         Bm    A                 Bm
Once I was crazy and my ace in the hole
    A7                     Bm
Was that I knew that I was crazy
     A7                    Bm
So I never lost my self-control
A7                         Bm     A7
I just walk in the middle of the road
                             Bm
I sleep in the middle of the bed
A7                   Bm   A7
I stop in the middle of a sentence
And the voice in the middle of my head said
    G/D  Bm     F#m
    Hey, Junior,   where you been so long
G#m7-5
    Don't you know me
Dm6/F                   A/E      D#m7-5
    I'm your ace in the hole (oh yeah)
Dmaj7

C#m5-5      A#dim
    Lean on me
Bm7
    Don't you know me
Dm6/F              A   Bm7/A A7
    I'm your guarantee

G/D            G          F#m
Riding on this rolling bus beneath a stormy sky
Bm                      E7                          A  A7
With a slow moon rising and the smokestacks driving by
G/D                  G                    F#m
In the hour when the heart is weakest and the memory is strong
Bm                    E7                      A7
When time has stopped but the bus just rolls along
              D  A
Roll on, roll on
              D  A
Roll on, roll on
              D
Roll on, roll on

Some people say music that's their ace in the hole
A7                  Bm         A7                        Bm
Just your ordinary rhythm and blues, your basic rock and roll
A7                            Bm
You can sit on the top of the beat
A7                              Bm
You can lean on the side of the beat
A7                    Bm            A7
You can hang from the bottom of the beat
But you got to admit that the music is sweet
G/D Bm F#m
         Where you been so long
G#m7-5
    Don't you know me
Dm6/F                   A/E      D#m7-5
