Carnival Games
[Verse 1]
       Am                         C
If you spend enough cash at the carnival games
                F
You'll have a prize in your hand when you walk away
         Am                                  C
It'll slip through your fingers and you'll never know
         F
What winning's really like, at all
   Am                            C
I stayed here too long, now it's in my soul
                 F
And when the thunder rolls, I've got nowhere to go
  Am                       C
I keep going round on this carousel
            F
Because it spins me so well

[Pre-Chorus]
          Am                           C
And I'll stay with you just a little while
          F                         G
There's so much for us to see and do
             Am
But don't mistake this for
       C                  
An adventure in paradise
  F                             G7
Just because the ride looks so good

[Chorus]
Am                     C
Carnival games are so much fun to play
          F           
Hard to just walk away from
      G
When all you want are pretty things
 Am                       C
But the price you pay is always too much
                        F
I'll never dry up these tears
                     G7                       Am     C F G    
Cried from all the years of playing carnival games

[Verse 2]
   Am                                    C
To know which way to look, all the shiny lights
           F
Sign your name on the postcard of your life
    Am                          C
And everyone will say that you came and conquered
          F
Yeah, you won the whole race

[Pre-Chorus]
            Am
But don't mistake this for
        C
An adventure in paradise
F                                  G7
Just because the ride looks so good

[Chorus]
Am                     C
Carnival games are so much fun to play
          F           
Hard to just walk away from
      G
When all you want are pretty things
 Am                       C
But the price you pay is always too much
                        F
I'll never dry up these tears
                     G7                       Am     C F G    
Cried from all the years of playing carnival games

[Bridge]
           Am               C
I wanna shed all of my skin
          F              G      Am
Feel my blood as it tastes the wind
   C                     F     G
I don't know where to begin

[Chorus]
Am                     C
Carnival games are so much fun to play
          F           
Hard to just walk away from
      G
When all you want are pretty things
 Am                       C
But the price you pay is always too much
                        F
I'll never dry up these tears
                     G7                       Am     C F G    
Cried from all the years of playing carnival games

[Outro]
Am                         C    
You'll never really know what
                       F                 G           
You'll never really know what winning's like
Am                         C    
You'll never really know what
                       F                 G           
You'll never really know what winning's like
Am                         C    
You'll never really know what
                       F                 G           
You'll never really know what winning's like
Am                         C    
You'll never really know what
                       F                 G           
You'll never really know what winning's like
