Action Man
Lyrics transcribed by: Scott Holcomb
Johnny Alvis
Music transcribed by: Nick Burlison
Scott Holcomb
Verse 1:
B                   D   E
Willie said "he was the mostest horse"
             F# D    B
A ??? desert ma-ma's boy
B                    D    E
Running in first, neither crowned nor cursed
                           F#    D   B
He tears away like a child takes his toy

Chorus:
B  A#      A     G#       G     A  G  A   F#
   Side by side, souls of kind, different world
B  A#        A     G#       G      A   G  A  F#
   Hearts of gold, limbs of steel, Man-Of -  War

Verse 2:
Oh, place your bets boys, get up, get in time
Burn the bolts, you ain't seen nothin' yet
Maybe back at that old Kentucky home
That it was luck, he'll catch him if he can

Chorus 2:
Fire inside, blaze of glory, space in time
Heart of gold, limbs of steel, Man-Of-War

Bridge:
A          F#
   Oh, Saratoga
A              F#
Ooo, play your favorite
G                      E        G
Odds are more than one hundred
    E             G   A
Oh, Willie said
     F#
Ooo, Saratoga

Jam over verse riff

Verse 3:
Nowhere, nowhere to run
??? gonna take the highest prize
We're hardly funnin' now, little children
He's workin' it now, never, never look back

(Chorus 2)

(Chorus)

End on one run through the verse riff
