Riding down, riding down

My hand on your seat

Asking you where you want us to go

                     Em 
It's not like I'm asking to be your wife
                F#m 
Wanna make you mine, but that's hard to say

Well, you know that I'm not a gambler 
         Bb 
But I'm being gambled on
               F C F 
They put in a nickel and I sing a little song
 
Dadn da dadn da dadn da da da
      Bb 
Dadn da dadn da da da
               F C F 
They put in a nickel and I sing a little song
 
 
 
Well I don't mind that they're lucky
        Bb 
But it seems like they always win
                   F C F 
And gambling is illegal in the state of mind I'm in
 
And if I had a nickel
          Bb 
For each time that I've been put on
                F C F 
I would be the nickel man and I'd sing a nickel song
 
 
CHORUS:
         Bb F 
They're only putting in a nickel
          C F 
And they want a dollar song
             Bb F 
Oh, they're only putting in a nickel
          C F 
And they want a dollar song
 
 
 
Well, I know I don't know so many things
       Bb 
But I know what's been going on
                         F C F 
We're only putting in a little to get rid of a lot that's wrong
 
And if we had a nickel 
          Bb 
For each time that we've been put on 
                 F C F 
We'd all be the nickel man and we'd sing a nickel song, you know
 
 
CHORUS:
         Bb F 
They're only putting in a nickel

Oh, they're only putting in a nickel
          C F 
And they want a dollar song
 
 
 
Well, you know that I'm not a gambler 
         Bb 
But I'm being gambled on

My Father chords – Melanie Safka

 Melanie Safka - My Father


## NOTE: The last verse and Outro are all on the chord G ##


CAPO: 1st Fret


INTRO:  G C G C G 


My father always promised us
 C G 
We would live in France

We'd go sailing on the Seine
     C D Em 
And I would learn to dance


              A 
We lived in Ohio then
     D Dm 
And he worked in the mines
                     G 
On his dreams, like boats, we knew 
 C Bb G 
We would sail in time___



All my sisters soon were gone
    C G 
To Denver and Cheyenne

Marrying their grownup dreams
     C D Em 
The lilacs and the man


             A D 
I stayed behind the youngest
                        Dm 
And only danced alone
                   G 
The colours of my father's dreams
 C Bb G 
Faded without a sound



And now I live in Paris
        C G 
And my children dance and dream

Hearing the story of a miner's life
    C D Em 
In words they've never seen


                 A             
I sailed my memories of old
      D Dm 
Like boats across the Seine
                   G 
And I watched the Paris sun
 C Bb G 
Set in my father's eyes again



My father always promised us

We would live in France

We'd go sailing on the Seine

And I would learn to dance

Oh, my senses have been stripped
        G C 
And my hands can't feel to grip
        G C     
And my toes too numb to step
         G C D 
Waiting only for my boot heels to be wandering

I'm ready to go anywhere

Through the foggy ruins of time

Down past the frightened leaves
         G C      
And the lifeless, frozen trees
          G C 
Way down to the windy beach
     G C D 
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
 
 
         C D            
I wanna dance beneath the diamond sky
      G C 
With one hand waving free
       G C   
Silhouetted by the sea
          G C     
With all memory and fate
        G C 
Driven deep beneath the waves
                  G C D 
Please let me forget about today until tomorrow

Marvelous Toy chords – Melanie Safka

 Melanie Safka - Marvelous Toy


CAPO: 2nd Fret


INTRO:  C G D G D            
When I was just a little girl
 G D 
Full of health and joy
     C G              
One Christmas morning I received
   A7 D 
A marvellous little toy
   G D            
A wonder to behold it was
      G C 
With many colours bright
                       G                     
And the moment I laid eyes on it
      A7 D 
It became my heart's delight


CHORUS:
          G                                        
It went "Zip" when it moved
  D                  
"Pop" when it stopped
  G C 
"Whirr" when it stood still
                   G             
I never knew just what it was
       D G C G D G 
And I guess I never will


                       D            
The first time that I picked it up 
   G D 
I had a big surprise
        C G              
'Cause right on the bottom were two big buttons
      A7 D 
That looked like big green eyes
   G D            
I first pushed one and then the other
     G C 
And then I pushed its lid
                   G                     
And when I set it down again
 A7 D 
This is what it did: 


CHORUS:
          G                                        
It went "Zip" when it moved
  D                  
"Pop" when it stopped
  G C 
"Whirr" when it stood still
                   G             
I never knew just what it was
       D G C G D G 
And I guess I never will


                            D            
It first marched left, and then marched right
     G D 
And then went under a chair
     C G              
And when I looked where it had gone
    A7 D 
It wasn't even there
   G D            
I started to cry, my daddy laughed 
    G C 
He knew that I would find
                         G                     
When I turned around my marvellous toy
   A7 D 
A-chugging from behind


CHORUS:
          G   
It went "Zip" when it moved
  D                  
"Pop" when it stopped
  G C 
"Whirr" when it stood still
                   G             
I never knew just what it was
       D G C G D G 
And I guess I never will


INSTRUMENTAL:   (## same as verse ##)
                D G D C G A7 D G D G C G A7 G D            
The years have gone by too quickly it seems
   G D 
I have my own little boy
     C G              
And yesterday I gave to him
    A7 D 
My marvellous little toy
     G D            
His eyes nearly popped right out of his head
    G C 
He gave a squeal of glee
                                  G                     
And neither one of us knows just what it is
        A7 D 
But he loves it just like me
