       E (022100@1)                           EWell (022100@1)I woke up this morning stumbled out of my rack
  E (022100@1)                        EI (022100@1)opened up the paper to the page in the back
   A (x02220@1)                       AIt (x02220@1)only took a moment for my finger to find
    E (022100@1)                    EMy (022100@1)daily dose of destiny, under my sign
   B (x2444x@1)                    BMy (x2444x@1)eyes just about popped out of my head
             E[stop] (022100@1)                           n.c.
It said "the stars are stacked against you girl, get back in bed"

       A (x02220@1)   A (x02220@1)     E (022100@1)     EI (022100@1)feel lucky, I feel lucky, yeah
 B (x2444x@1)                    BNo (x2444x@1)Professor Doom gonna stand in my way
E[stop] (022100@1)        n.c.            E (022100@1) E (022100@1) E (022100@1) E (022100@1)  Mmmmm, I feel lucky today    [instrumental]

Well I strolled down to the corner, gave my numbers to the clerk
The pot's eleven million so I called in sick to work
I bought a pack of Camels, a burrito and a Barq's
Crossed against the light, made a beeline for the park
The sky began to thunder, wind began to moan
I heard a voice above me saying, "girl, you better get back home"

But I feel lucky, oh oh oh, I feel lucky, yeah
No tropical depression gonna steal my sun away
Mmmmm, I feel lucky today

A (x02220@1)  A (x02220@1)  E (022100@1)  E (022100@1)    B (x2444x@1)  B (x2444x@1)  E (022100@1)  B[Guitar (x2444x@1)solo]

E [stop]
Now eleven million later, I was sitting at the bar
(D)   E [stop]
I'd bought the house a double, and the waitress a new car
       A[stop] (x02220@1)Dwight Yoakam's in the corner, trying to catch my eye
(D)  E [stop]
Lyle Lovett's right beside me with his hand upon my thigh
(A)    B[stop] (x2444x@1)                B[stop] (x2444x@1)  The moral of this story, it's simple but it's true
          E (022100@1)                    E7Hey (020130@1)the stars might lie, but the numbers never do

I feel lucky, oh oh oh, I feel lucky, yeah
Hey Dwight, hey Lyle, boys, you don't have to fight
Hot dog, I'm feeling lucky tonight

I feel lucky, brrrrr, I feel lucky, yeah
Think I'll flip a coin, I'm a winner either way
Mmmmmm, I feel lucky today
E (022100@1)E (022100@1)E (022100@1)E (022100@1)  A (x02220@1)A (x02220@1)E (022100@1)E (022100@1)  B (x2444x@1)B (x2444x@1)E (022100@1) n.c.      (F#9) (F9) E9 (020132@1)         E[piano (022100@1)solo]                      [piano break]            [crescendo]  [stop]


(Don't forget the capo on the 7th fret.)

Play the E measures     And the A measures
like this:              like this:

|----------------|      |----------------|
|----------------|      |----------------|
|----------------|      |2---2---2---2---|
|2---2---2---2---|      |2---4---2---4---|
|2---4---2---4---|      |0---0---0---0---|
|0---0---0---0---|      |----------------|
 ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .         ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .

I'm not sure about B.  It might be x244xx and x264xx (like A), or it might
just be x244xx.

For the very beginning of the song, slide into the first E with 011xxx.
