Alien Casinos by Jack Johnson

Tabbed by Brian Noy

This is one great Jack song that doesn't get any attention. I've only
found it on the JOAT CD so make sure you pick it up. It's a real
easy song to play to with 3 chords and an easy rhythm to pick up on.

It goes:

   A   D              G   A
e--5---10----5----8---3---5--
B--5---10----7----7---3---5--
G--6---11-or-7-or-7---4---6--
D--7---12----7----0---5---7--
A--7---12----5----0---5---7--
E--5---10----5--------3---5--

After the first verse there's a little lick something like this:

e------------------
B------------------
G------------------
D------------------
A--------2-4-2---2-
E--0-0-4-------4---

And then back into the A-D-G-A progression. At the end when he's
singing one part he throws in an E major chord

Now for the lyrics!!

The risings been defeated
By the pirates of the new age
Alien casinos, well maybe it’s just time to say
Things can go bad, little kids will run away
But as they grow older, the trouble just seem to stay

There’s a phosphorescent secret in the strings between the cans
No prints can come from fingers, when machines become our hands
And our feet become the wheels, and then our wheels become the cars
And the rigs begin to drill until the drillings gone to…..far

Things can go bad, and make you wanna run away
But as we grow older, the fall line begins to fade…fade…fade
