                                                               We left...
                            C    Bb
We left the toys out in the yard
                            A                      Dm
I took my wife and kids and left my home unguarded
                                 C   Bb
We packed what we could into the car
                  A              Dm
No one here knows how it started

Suddenly everything was just so out of control
      Am
Now I want some answers, mister, I need to know
  Bb
I hear all the talk but I don't know what you're sayin'

But I think I got a good idea of the game that you're playin'

C             Dm
Roulette, that's the name
C             Bb
Roulette, that's the game now
C                 Dm
Roulette, I don't know what they're sayin'
C             Bb                 | F C | Dm
Roulette, and everybody's playin'

                       C                                  Bb
I grew up here on this street where nothin' moves, just a strange breeze
                   A                Dm
In a town full of worthless memories
                           C
There's a shadow in my backyard
           Bb
I've got a house full of things that I can't touch
                               A
Well all those things won't do me much good now
Dm
I was a fireman out at Riker's, I did my job
Am
Mister, I've been cheated, I feel like I've been robbed
Bb
I'm the big expendable, my life's just cancelled, null and void

But what are you gonna do about your new boy

C             Dm
Roulette, you're playin' with my life
C              Bb
Roulette, with my children and my wife
C                Dm
Roulette, every day the stakes get bigger
C              Bb                          | F C |
Roulette, a different finger on the trigger

Am             Em             G                 D              F

Dm                     C           Bb
Down by the river that talks the night speaks in searchlights
     A                     Dm
And shortwave radios squawk,
                        C
The police patrol the streets
          Bb
But I've left behind the man I used to be,
                              A
Everything he believed in and all that belonged to me
Dm
I tried to find my way out to somewhere where I thought it'd be safe
      Am
They stopped me at the roadblock they put up on the interstate
  Bb
They put me in detention but I broke loose and then I ran
  Gm                                                                          Bb
They said they want to ask me a few questions but I think they had other plans
                                                                 A4
Now I don't know who to trust and I don't know what I can believe

They say they want to help me but with the stuff they keep on sayin'

I think those guys just wanna keep on playin'


C           Dm
Roulette, with my life
C           Bb
Roulette, with my kids and my wife
C               Dm
Roulette, the bullet's in the chamber
C                Bb
Roulette, who's the unlucky stranger
C              Dm
Roulette, surprise, you're dead
C              Bb
Roulette, the gun's to your head
C                      Dm
Roulette, the bullet's spinning in the chamber
C                   Bb
Roulette, pull the trigger, feel the click
F            C
No further danger

About the artist behind Roulette Tab:

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. His eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including eighteen Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, along with a notoriously dedicated and devoted global fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S.[1]

Springsteen's lyrics often concern men and women struggling to make ends meet. He has gradually become identified with progressive politics. Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his iconic status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which Springsteen intersperses long, whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to hate but now seems to have come to terms with, as he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage. The nickname originated when a young Springsteen, playing club gigs with a band in the 1960s, took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates.[2]
