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

Em                  G               C     G
Now there's trouble busing in, from 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                       D
and the gambling commissioners hanging on, by the skin of his teeth
[ Tab from: ]
Em         G         C        G
Everything dies baby that's a fact
    Em               G             C         G
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back
         Em     G            C       G
Put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty and
Em        G           C      G
Meet me tonight, in Atlantic City

Em - G - C - G - Em - G - C - G

Well I got a job and tried to put my money away
But I got in too deep and I could not pay
So I drew what I had from the Central Trust
And I bought us two tickets on that Coast City bus


        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
so put your stockings on, cause it might get cold


Now I been looking for a job but it's hard to find
Down here it's just winners and losers and
Don't get caught on the wrong side of that line
Well I'm tired of coming out on the losing end
So honey last night I met this guy and I'm gonna do a little favor for him

Em        G           C      G
Meet me tonight, in Atlantic City
