Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
Am Am | Am Am:G | F F | F F:G  - x2

Verse 1:
 Am              G/A  F/A
Day into night she's with me,
 G/A  Am              G/A F/A
How sweet is her warm embrace,
 G/A                  Am
Safe in the scent of jasmine,
 G  Fmaj7       Gsus4    F | F F:G
So safe in her gold and lace.

[Instrumental 1] = [Intro]

Verse 2:
 Am              G/A        F/A
Mornings I find,     she's left me,
 G/A Am            G/A       F/A
So  cold so alone,     but aware.
    G/A               Am
I try to escape, she finds me,
G   Fmaj7        Gsus4       F
Oh run though I may, she's there,
                       Am ->
There, there, there, there.

Instrumental 2:
Am | D F:G  - x4

Break:
 Am
Luck is a lady
        D      F   G          Am | D F:G
Whose smile is as cold as a stone.
  Am
She'll bring you things,
       D         F     G           Am | D F:G
Many things you might never have known.

      F
But when your die is cast,
G                                 Am
  She'll have the final laugh at you.
        F
She'll lock you in a duel
       G                     Am
Where you come out the fool.

Chorus:
   Am           C   F    G
Beware of the Queen of Spades,
      Am           C           D    C   D
Her black widow's curse might find you yet.
   Am        C     F   G   Am      D
Beware of a love that you will regret,
     F         Em7        D
Her love means only your death.

[Instrumental 2]

[Instrumental 1]

Verse 3:
 Am            G/A        F/A
Day into night     she's with me,
G/A  Am               G/A   F/A
    Turn of a card, she's there.
     G/A                      Am
The first time is free, you know,
 G    Fmaj7  Gsus4    F
But from now on, pay me,
             Am
Me, me, me, me.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. You lose!
