Cheating At Solitaire è la title-track nonchè settima traccia dell’omonimo album solista di Mike Ness, frontman dei Social Distortion, rilasciato nel 1999 e che vede collaborazioni importanti con Bruce Springsteen e Brian Setzer.
E’ una ballata rock molto introspettiva, in cui lo stesso Mike Ness si immedesima in un rubacuori che, in vecchiaia, si scopre essere l’uomo più solo del mondo.

Mike Ness Cheating At Solitaire Guitar Chords Tab Accordi per Chitarra Testo Lyrics

        G                        C          G
You can lie to yourself, you can lie to the world
        G                  D         G
You can lie to the one you call your girl
        G                      C               G
You can humble yourself to the hearts that you stole
          G                         D        G
Wondering who's gonna love you when you grow old 

       Em                       C
With a fistful of courage and a heart full of rage
  G                     D
I realized I'd locked myself in a cage
            Em                         C
I'll be the one standing there with my watery eyes
            G                  D                       G
I'll be the fool in the mirror asking you why...asking why 

When I got to the end of my dirty rainbow
and I found that there was no pot of gold
Well, I learned that I was empty and not quite as strong
for I had robbed my heart and cheated my soul 

Look for the one with the watery eyes
I'll be the fool in the mirror asking you why
Cursing lovers in a warm tender embrace
Scoffing at the world and the whole human race 

You can run, you can hide
You can feed your foolish pride
You can use and abuse
In the end you'll always lose...at the game 

(Solo)   Em   C   G   D 

You can run, you can hide
You can feed your foolish pride
with the hearts that you stole
and an empty pot of gold
and the lover's warm embrace
and the whole damned human race
You can use and abuse
in the end you'll always lose...at the game 

      G                 C   G
For I cheated myself at solitaire

[Mike Ness]
