			     ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES - Lenka

Tuning: Standard
Capo: 3

Taken from watching/listening to her performance in Singapore.

Chords start directly above the syllable Lenka sings them on. I hope you
can figure out what it means for chords to be between words. 

As well, there are a couple optional chords you can throw in
to keep the chords feeling fresh. X7 chords work well when you're
trying to lead the listener onward.
- Instead of D, try D7 (XX0212) or D7/F# (200212)
- Instead of Em, try Em7 (022033)


Intro: G Em G Em


G Em Roll, roll with the punches x2
GThat really hurt me
EmLike a fist to the face
GI wasn't ready
EmTo be knocked out of place
CSuddenly everything I was sure of
Am G EmIs sinking below the depths of the surface
GIt's unexpected,
Emit usually is
GWhen you're rejected
EmOr you take a hit
CSuddenly everything's thrown in a spin
AmNo time to grow a thicker skin
C DWhat kind of situation am I in now?
[Chorus]
G CWhen life tries to knock all the wind out of you
Em DYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
G C If all life offers is black and blue
Em DYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
G Em G Em
G EmLittle weapons over the phone
G EmThey like to threaten the life that I know
CThey say get over here and get into the ring
Am G EmBut I'm not really much a fighter
G EmMy mechanisms of defense are down
G EmMy resistance is out on the town
CI was alarmed by your attack
AmThis isn't a boxing match
C DBut I'll be damned if I ever let you win
[Chorus]
G CWhen life tries to knock all the wind out of you
Em DYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
G C If all life offers is black and blue
Em DYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
Bm EmWhen all I want is a little stability
Bm EmSome time without any bruises
CYou go and tell me the things that I don't want to hear
AmPutting your fist into my ears
CFilling me up with the dread and the fear
Amleaving you all in pieces
CSuddenly everything's thrown in a spin
AmNo time to grow a thicker skin
C DWhat kind of situation am I in now?
[Chorus]
G CWhen life tries to knock all the wind out of you
Em DYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
G C If all life offers is black and blue
Em DYou've got to hold, hold, hold your head up high
G CWhen life tries to knock all the wind out of you
Em DYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
G C If all life offers is black and blue
Em DYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
