2nd Verse:
Dm One town's very like another
When your head's down over your pieces, brother It's a drag, it's a bore, it's really such a pity To be looking at the board, not looking at the city

Gm C DmI can feel the devil walking next to me

Gm7 And thank God I'm only watching the game -- controlling it --
Dm I don't see you guys rating
The kind of mate I'm contemplating I'd let you watch, I would invite you
Gm7But the queens we use would not excite you
So you better go back to your bars, your temples, your massage A7b9 parlours 3rd Chorus:
