Em   G   C   G


[Verse 1]

         Em          G              
Well they blew up the chicken man in 
C           G
Philly last night
Em       G                 C   G
and they blew up his house too
Em          G                  C        
Down on the boardwalk, they're ready for
  G
a fight
      Em            G               D
gonna see what them racket boys can do


Em                  G               
Now there's trouble busing in, from 
C     G
outta state
        Em         G        C   G
and the D.A. can't get no relief
Em       G                  C     G
Gonna be a rumble out on the promenade
       Em                G            
and the gambling commissioners hanging 
          D
on, by the skin of his teeth


[Chorus]

Em         G         C        G
Everything dies baby that's a fact
   Em               G             C   
But maybe everything that dies someday 
     G
comes back
        Em     G            C       
Put your makeup on, fix your hair up 
G
pretty and
Em        G           C      G
Meet me tonight, in Atlantic City

[Verse 2]

      Em            G               
Well I got a job and tried to put my 
C      G
money away
     Em              G       C         
But I got the kind of debt no honest man
      G
could pay
    Em          G            C       
So I drew what I had from the Central 
G
Trust
     Em            G               
And I bought us two tickets on that 
D
Coast City bus


[Chorus]

Em         G         C        G
Everything dies baby that's a fact
   Em               G             C   
But maybe everything that dies someday 
     G
comes back
        Em     G            C       
Put your makeup on, fix your hair up 
G
pretty and
Em        G           C      G
Meet me tonight, in Atlantic City

[Bridge]

       C                           Em
Now our luck may have died, and our love
may be cold
         C       D         Em
but with you, forever I'll stay
          C                    Em
Yeah we're going out where, the sand 
turns to gold
D
so put your stockings on, cause it might
get cold


[Chorus]

Em         G         C        G
Everything dies baby that's a fact
   Em               G             C   
But maybe everything that dies someday

comes back

Put your makeup on, fix your hair up

[Verse 3]

          Em            G            
Now I been looking for a job but it's 
C       G
hard to find
       Em                  G          
There's winners and there's losers and 
   C             G
I'm south of that line
        Em              G          
Well I'm tired of coming out on the 
C      G
losing end
     Em                   G           
But I talked to a man last night gonna 
           D
do a little favor for him


[Chorus]

Em         G         C        G
Everything dies baby that's a fact
   Em               G             C   
But maybe everything that dies someday 
     G
comes back
        Em     G            C       
Put your makeup on, fix your hair up 
G
pretty and
Em        G           C      G
Meet me tonight, in Atlantic City
