                [Intro]
|D  |D  |Fadd9 |C/G | x2

[Verse 1]
G
  Lost man sining for his  soul
Dm            Fadd9
  I saw it on Rio Bravo
G
  He held the notes like rock and roll
Dm                     Fadd9
  And told his tale to Colorado
G
  I gave up my only twin
Dm                        Fadd9
  I turned my face to the world of shadows
G
  Sometimes the righteous win
Dm                   Fadd9
  Most times, it's a losing battle

[Instrumental]
|D  |D  |Fadd9 |C/G | x2

[Verse 2]
G
  Swam naked in the mythic lake
Dm                       Fadd9
  Spent the night on the face of the earth
G
  From the apple tree, I ripped a snake
Dm                      Fadd9
  It was a poison but I knew of its worth
G
  Kept it in a box of wood
Dm              Fadd9
  Fed it all my sins and apples
G
  Tried to do the things I should
Dm                  Fadd9
  Till then, it's a losing battle

[Instrumental]
|D  |D  |Fadd9 |C/G | x2

[Chorus]
Em                        A        C/G    G
  It's always been in my nature to be the beast
Am          C/G       G         D
  Blame the maker but stay with me

[Verse 3]
G
  Drifted down to Tennessee
Dm                   Fadd9
  Lost my heart to a girl of silver
G
  She was trying to be free
Dm                  Fadd9
  There was nothing to forgive her
G
  By the time the fever broke
Dm           Fadd9
  And I had enough of trouble
G
  That's when trouble spoke
Dm                 Fadd9
  Sometimes it's a losing battle

[Instrumental]
|D  |D  |Fadd9 |C/G | x6

[Chorus]
Em                        A        C/G    G
  It's always been in my nature to be the beast
Am          C/G       G         D
  Blame the maker but stay with me

[Verse 4]
G
  Fell into a den of thieves
Dm                Fadd9
  Got lost in the caves of virtue
G
  Born again and lost belief
Dm                          Fadd9
  Without a friend till the day I met you
G
  Now I'm trying to mend my ways
Dm                Fadd9
  I had enough of pain and bad will
G
  Good enough for you someday
Dm                  Fadd9
  Till then, it's a losing battle

[Outro]
