\__  = lick   _____/


also note: the CD recording is in the key of F#, but I hate using so many 
barre chords.
It hurts the back of my  hand! So, I transcribed it to G. 

G                                       
I use to have a nice life.    (the  lick, shown in the intro above, is 
repeated here and after all other lines.)                                     
      
And I used to live by the right. 
But I strayed from the good side of the lord. 
D                                                                          G
And I flirted with the devil, and he delt me a card. 

chorus:
                       C                                      G
And he told me, that you will never win.
                      D                                     G
And he told me that I was his best friend.
                C                                          G
I had no friend (faith?) to go home to.
          D                                                        G         
So, I sold my sole to the devil; now  I'm blue.

G                                       
Never thought it could be this bad.
Hurtin' like this oh it's killin' me bad.
                C                          G
Now I'm stuck in a life of pain.
           D                                     G
And I got the devil takin' me away.

Repeat chorus:
note: sing "only friend" this time.                                           
                                                  
                                                                              
                                                                      
Authors note: There you have it, friends. My first song submitted. It's also 
my first attempt at tabulator. While not 100% accurate, you should be able to 
play it after listening to the CD a couple of times. I welcome any and all
