Well they blew up the chicken man in Philly last night 
         F#m     A         D   A
Now they blew up his house too
            F#m               A             D          A
Down on the boardwalk they're gettin' ready for a fight 
      F#m           A               D  A
Gonna see what them racket boys can do
            F#m     A              D     A
Now there's trouble busin' in from outta state 
        F#m        A        D   A
And the D.A. can't get no relief
           F#m    A          D     A
Gonna be a rumble out on the promenade 
        F#m        A                            D    E
And the gamblin' commission's hangin' on by the skin of its teeth

Well now everything dies baby that's a fact
          F#m             A        E         F#m
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back
                A           D       A

       F#m   A                    D         A
Well I got a job and tried to put my money away
          F#m           A      D       A
But I got debts that no honest man can pay
     F#m         A            D       A
So I drew what I had from the Central Trust
      F#m           A               D     E
And I bought us two tickets on that Coast City bus

NOTES:

TUNING: This song is in the same tuning as Nebraska. 
It's not quite a whole semitone flat. 
The song is in 'F#minor' but the guitar need to be tuned down for it to sound right. 
There is no other key to play it in. 
If you want to tune to the record it's easier to tune to the 
Nebraska track because it's D, G and A, open strings.
