Lana Del Rey – Off To The Races chords
So this tab's a bit hard to write out exactly where the chords change. But it basically follows the same Em - Am - Em format for the verses and if you listen to the song you'll be able to hear them. For better understanding I put the parts where it stays on Em (where the chord continues) in brackets just so people know I wasn't leaving out a spot there. I figured it out on piano and haven't played it on guitar but I would think it would transpose pretty much the same, let me know any suggestions.EmMy old man is a bad man butI can't deny the way he holds my handAm EmAnd he grabs me, he has me by my heartHe doesn't mind I have a Las Vegas pastAmHe doesn't mind I have an LA crass way about meEmHe loves me with every beat of his cocaine heart(Em)Swimming pool glimmering darlingWhite bikini off with my red nail polishAmWatch me in the swimming pool bright blue ripplesEmYou sit sippin' on your black Cristal, yeah(Em)Light of my life, fire of my loinsBe a good baby, do what I wantAmLight of my life, fire of my loinsEmGive me them gold coins, gimme them coins(Em)And I'm off to the races, casesof Bacardi chasers, chasin' me all over townAmCuz he knows I'm wasted, facingTime again on Riker's Island and I won't get outDBecause I'm crazy, baby I need you to come here and save meCI'm your little scarlet, starlet singing in the gardenKiss me on my open mouthEmReady for you(Em)My old man is a tough man butHe got a soul as sweet as blood red jamAmAnd he shows me, he knows meEmEvery inch of my tar black soulHe doesn't mind I have a flat broke down lifeAmIn fact he says he thinks it's why he might like about meEmAdmires me, the way I roll like a Rolling Stone(Em)Likes to watch me in the glass room bathroom, Chateau MarmontSlippin' on my red dress, puttin' on my makeupAm EmGlass room perfume Cognac lilac fumeSays it feels like heaven to him(Em)Light of his life, fire of his loinsKeep me forever, tell me you own meAmLight of your life, fire of your loinsEmTell me you own me, gimme them coins(Em)And I'm off to the races, casesof Bacardi chasers, chasin' me all over townAmCuz he knows I'm wasted, facingTime again on Riker's Island and I won't get outDBecause I'm crazy, baby I need you to come here and save meCI'm your little scarlet, starlet singing in the gardenKiss me on my open mouthEmNow I'm off to the races, lacesLeather on my waist is tight and I am fallin' downAmI can see your face is shameless, Cipriani's basementLove you but I'm going downDGod I'm so crazy, baby, I'm sorry that I'm misbehavingCI'm your little harlot, starlet, Queen of Coney IslandRaising hell all over townEmSorry 'bout itAm EmMy old man is a thief and I'm gonna stay and pray with him 'til the endD AmBut I trust in the decision of the lord to watch over usTake him when he may, if he mayEm DI'm not afraid to say that I'd die without himAmWho else is gonna put up with me this way?I need you, I breathe you, I never leave youEm DThey would rue the day I was alone without youAmYou're lying with your gold chain on, cigar hanging from your lipsEm DI said "Hon' you never looked so beautiful as you do now, my man."EmAnd we're off to the races, placesReady, set the gate is down and now we're goin' inAmto Las Vegas pay us, Casino Oasis, honey it is time to spinDBoy you're so crazy, baby, I love you forever not maybeC Em, Am, DYou are my one true love, you are my one true loveCYou are my one true loveEm, Am, D, C
