Valentino got a booky shop 
C#m         E        Abm       Abm    
And what he takes he gives for what he's got 
C#m           E      Abm         B 
And what he's got he says he has not 
C#m   E          Abm Abm 
Stole from anyone 

Bridge 
C#m                    Abm 
It's not that he don't tell the truth 
C#m             F#m 
Or even that he misspent his youth 
C#m          Abm 
It's just he holds the proof

But you know something's wrong

E                     E                     Abm      A B

C#m  E           Abm       B 
Valentino's in a cold sweat 
C#m            E             Abm       Abm    
Placed all his money on that last bet 
C#m            E        Abm            B 
Against all the odds he smokes another cigarette 
C#m     E                Abm       Abm 
Says it helps him to forget he's a nervous wreck 

Bridge 
C#m              Abm 
It's not that he misses much 
C#m             F#m 
Or even that he lost his lucky touch 
C#m               Abm 
It's just that he gambles so much 
A                      B 
And you know that it's wrong 

Chorus

E                     E

Try to say I told you I told you

Waiting just to catch your eye

Waiting for an alibi (Waiting for an alibi) 

Verse  3 
C#m  E        Abm       B 
Valentino got nowhere to go 
C#m    E        Abm       Abm    
On his own like Romeo 
C#m     E       Abm         B 
Blow by blow he watches his money go  
C#m      E          Abm Abm 
Now he's oh so low  

Bridge 
C#m              Abm 
It's not that he misses her  
C#m             F#m 
Or even that he can't resist her

He feels so strong

Waiting for an alibi (Waiting for an alibi) 
Abm                   A B 
Try to say I told you 

E                     E      Abm      A B 
Waiting for an alibi 
E                     E      Abm      A B
