Bright light city gonna set my soul                     w/ d eb e  d d eb e
Gonna set my soul on fire
Got a whole lot of money that's ready to burn
So get those stakes up higher                    
 
(g     f#)Em
There's a thousand pretty women waitin' out there
And they're all livin' devil may care              
And I'm just the devil with love to spare so            (ooooh ooooh)

How I wish that there were more
Than the twenty-four hours in the day
'Cause even if there were forty more
I wouldn't sleep a minute away
 
Oh there's black jack and poker and the roulette wheel
A fortune won and lost on ev'ry deal
All you need's a strong heart and a nerve of steel      (ooooh ooooh)

    Viva Las Vegas with you neon flashin'
    And your one armbandits crashin'
    G
    All those hopes down the drain

    Viva Las Vegas turnin' day into nighttime
    Turnin' night into daytime
           A(/E)
    If you see it once
                              D! D! D! D! DD D D D D D D D
    You'll never be the same again
 
I'm gonna keep on the run I'm gonna have me some fun
If it costs me my very last dime
If I wind up broke up well I'll always remember 
That I had a swingin' time
 
I'm gonna give it ev'rything I've got
Lady luck please let the dice stay hot
Let me shoot a seven with ev'ry shot ehh                (ooooh ooooh)
