[Intro]
G  C  Am  D  G  4x


[Verse]
     C               Am
Life springs eternal
           D           G
On a gaudy neon street
    C                  Am     D     G
Not that I care at all
            C               Am
I spent the best part of my losing streak
      D         G
In an Army Jeep
    C                 Am    D    G
For what I can't recall
       C          Am        D    G
Oh I'm banging on my TV set
      C             Am
And I check the odds
      D           G
And I place my bet
  C           Am
I pour a drink
      D               G
And I pull the blinds
      C                     Am
And I wonder what I'll find


[Chorus]
    D           G     C  Am  D
I'm Leaving Las Vegas
       G         C
Lights so bright
            Am
Palm sweat, blackjack
     D
On a Saturday night
G                C  Am  D  G
Leaving Las Vegas
        C        Am         D
Leaving for good, for good
            G         C  Am  D  G
I'm leaving for good
            G         C  Am  D  G
I'm leaving for good


[Verse]
C                  Am
Used to be I could drive up to
D                    G
Barstow for the night
C                   Am
Find some crossroad trucker
   D               G
To demonstrate his might
C                 Am
But these days it seems
D                     G     C
Nowhere is far enough away
       Am          D
So I'm leaving Las Vegas today


[Chorus]
                G        C     Am    D
I'm Leaving Las Vegas
       G         C
Lights so bright
            Am
Palm sweat, blackjack
     D
On a Saturday night
            G    C    Am    D
Leaving Las Vegas
        G        C        Am       D
Leaving for good, Leaving for good


[Bridge]
    Em
For good

I'm standing in the middle of the desert
        G                       Em
Waiting for my ship to come in
                                    C
But now no joker, no jack, no king
                          D
Can take this loser hand

And make it win


[Interlude]
                G        C     Am    D
I'm Leaving Las Vegas
G   C  Am  D
                G        C     Am    D
I'm Leaving Las Vegas
    G   C     Am    D
For good, for good


[Verse]
C                      Am
I quit my job as a dancer
D                    G
at the Lido des Girls
C            Am
Dealing blackjack
D               G
until one or two
C              Am
Such a muddly line
D                       G
between the things you want
C              Am          D         G
And the things you have to do


[Chorus]
                        C     Am    D
I'm Leaving Las Vegas
       G         C
Lights so bright
            Am
Palm sweat, blackjack
     D
On a Saturday night
            G    C    Am    D
Leaving Las Vegas
        G        C        Am       D
Leaving for good, Leaving for good


[Outro]
            G    C    Am    D
Leaving Las Vegas
       G         C
Lights so bright
            Am
Palm sweat, blackjack
     D
On a Saturday night
            G    C    Am    D
Leaving Las Vegas
        G        C        Am       D
Leaving for good, Leaving for good
            G    C    Am    D
Leaving Las Vegas
       G         C
Lights so bright
     Am             D
On a Saturday night

Leaving Las Vegas

And I won't be back

No I won't be back

Not this time
