Intro : E F# A (x3)
          E F# A A

Verse 1 : 
E        F#            A
Bad luck comes in from Tampa
E        F#            A
Bad luck comes in from Tampa
                 E
On the back of a truck
                    B
Doing ninety up the interstate
        E              F#             A
We have bad dreams the night he rolls in
        E              F#             A
We have bad dreams the night he rolls in
       E                      B
And we try to keep our sprits high

Chorus : 
         E              A
But they flag and they wane
                     F#      A
When the truck pulls up out front
                    B
In the light spring rain
                         A
And they sag like withering flowers
                   F#   A
Let the good times roll on
                                  B
Through these first few desperate hours

Instrumental : E F# A (x3)
                     E F# A A

Verse 2 : 
E               F#                     A
Yeah the driver drops his cargo at the curb
E          F#                     A   
The driver drops his cargo at the curb
                  E  
And the sun peeks in
                          B
Like a killer through the curtain
E                    F#                         A
And when cloven hoof prints turn up in the garden
E                    F#                         A
Yeah when cloven hoof prints turn up in the garden
                    E
We keep up the good fight
                    B
We keep our spirits light

Chorus : 
         E         A
But they draw like flies
                               F#   A   
And there's a stomach-churning shift
                    B
In the way the land lies
         E         A
And they lean like towers
     F#                     A 
On a hillside struggling to stand
                                  B
Through these first few desperate hours yeah

Outro : E F# A (x3)
           E F# A A A E
