        C			Dm   C
There's a solitary man crying, "Hold me"
                         Dm    C
It's only because he's a-lonely
                              Dm C
If the keeper of time runs slowly
                           Dm  C
He won't be alive for long!

      F                                          C         Dm C 	
If he only had time to tell of all of the things he planned
       G                                                             
With a card up his sleeve, what would he achieve?
         F       C/E  G/D  G
It means nothing!

       C                        Dm   C
To the opium dens and the barroom gin
                              Dm  C
In the Belmont chair playing violins
                               Dm   C
The gambler's face cracks into a grin
                                Dm  C
As he lays down the king of spades

        F     
But the dealer just stares
                                     C  Dm  C
There's something wrong here, he thinks
    G
The gambler is seized and forced to his knees
    F   C/E      G/D G
And shot.......... Dead

Link  C,  C Dm  C,   C,   C Dm  C X2

        F       
He only wanted more time
               C           Dm  C
Away from the darkest door
        G                        
But his luck it gave in, as the dawn light crept in
       F   C/E    G/D G
And he lay on the floor

C                                Dm   C
From the Hundred Year War to the Crimea
                                Dm    C
With a lance and a musket and a roman spear 
                                      Dm   C
To all of the men who have stood with no fear
                          Dm  C
In the service of the King

  F                                   
Before you met your fate be sure you
        C       Dm  C
Did not forsake
     G                 F      C/E G/D  G
Your lover, may not be around anymore

About the artist behind Card Cheat Chords:

The Clash were an English punk rock band, active from 1976 to 1986, part of the original wave of UK punk.[1][2] Along with punk rock, they experimented with reggae, funk, rap, dub, rock and roll and rockabilly among other roots musics.[3][4] For most of their recording career, The Clash consisted of Joe Strummer (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mick Jones (lead guitar), Paul Simonon (bass) and Nicky "Topper" Headon (drums, percussion).[5] The group disbanded in early 1986, owing to lack of creative control and the loss of Headon in 1982 and Jones in 1983 due to internal friction.

The Clash were a major success in the UK from the release of their debut album. Their third album, London Calling, released in the UK in December 1979, brought them popularity in the United States when it came out there the following year. It received wide critical acclaim; a decade later Rolling Stone magazine declared it the best album of the 1980s.[6]

The Clash's style and rebellious attitude, along with their music, had a far-reaching influence on rock, alternative rock in particular.[7] Their record label's A&R director dubbed them "The Only British Band That Matters," which fans picked up and transformed into "The Only Band That Matters". In January 2003 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[8] The band wanted to play at the event, but were prevented by Joe Strummer's death in December 2002. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked The Clash #30 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[9]
