              G                 Am              D                G
Got a pretty smile, I can smile too.   Smile so big my headís in two.
               Am                D               G                Am

(Slide Licks in G)

D Em C (5 times) end on D

I like small towns and the people there. Easier money than welfare.
What does it take to get a handout? A sucker to trust you without a doubt.
But they need me and I need them, weíre all red-blooded working men.
Good or bad, where do I stand? Between the devil and a dollar is a confidence man.
[ Tab from: ]
                   D                      Em             C              D  
Itís a confidence game, Iím a confidence man. Sure as I win, sure as I stand.
                Em             C                     D                    Em
Tell you what I am, honest I ainít. Stab you in the back, smiling like a saint.
            C                   D                         Em               C
Confidence man in a confidence game, Iíll leave you with nothing but your shame.
           D                         Em                C                D
Your mama warned about a confidence game, sheís been taken in just the same Ė by a 
            D      Em     C    D
confidence man.


When the market dies like it always does everybodyís pockets are lighter than they was.
Evrybodyís mad everybodyís pissed They canít believe that they were taken by a scam like this
Still they canít even understand, how they got swindled by an ordinary man
They pay the price, thatís why I came, to make Ďem all losers in a confidence game.
