Chords

  Am   G   F  Dm  Em  Cmaj13  D9  Dm9  C
e|---|-3-|-1-|-1-|---|-------|---|---|---|
B|-1-|-3-|-1-|-3-|---|---1---|-1-|-1-|-1-|
G|-2-|-0-|-2-|-2-|-0-|---2---|-2-|-2-|-0-|
D|-2-|-0-|-3-|-0-|-2-|---0---|-0-|-0-|-2-|
A|-0-|-2-|-3-|---|-2-|---2---|-0-|-0-|-3-|

         Am                      G                     F                         Em
Well ill take two shots said the devil to the man, and laid a little book on the bar
    Am                      G                   F                           Em
The lord knows the devil he only talks shit and only drinks whisky from the jar
        Dm         Am           Em        Am
And his hands were raw, and his eyes were cold
        Dm              Am              Em
And his breath was pure alcohol and the sound of his voice never got old
       Dm            Am            Em                 Am
And he talked and he talked and he talked through the night
     Dm         Am              Em      Am
Just sippin his shine until the morning light
         Dm             Am               Em         Am
Stumbled in through the shades and as he started to go
  F         Em             Am
I put three bullets in his back

0:47

Adam uses this strumming pattern for the chords in the verse

   Am            Am         Am         Am
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-------1---------1----------1----------1---|
G|---------2---------2----------2----------2-|
D|-----2---------2----------2----------2-----|
A|-0---0-----0---0------0---0------0---0-----|
E|-------------------------------------------|


 - Verse - The (C) chords are optional, its a preference thing
       
         Am                         G                    F
Well the devil's bleeding crude oil   from a hole in his chest.
         Am                     G                         F
It keeps pangin on the bed pan,   leaking through the bed sheets.
            Am       (C)            Dm
And all the buisnessmen are putting pails benith his wounds.
  Em                       F
     Pawnin the oil at the market.

         Am                 G                   F
Well his heart aint made of nothin but piss and vinegar
        Am                  G                   F
And his boots have trampled more than you would know and,
    Am               (C)          Dm
His breath has split open the thermometer on the sill
       Em                    F         
Its so fucking cold in here, since you brought in the snow.


 - Chorus -

Am       G             F          Em
   Black heart leaking oil in the pan
           Am               G                F
   Dealing insults with his free hand in the hospital bed bleeding
Am       G     F              Em       
   Black heart   you shot the plan to hell
           Am     G             F
   And the apathy eats you up inside.


   ******************************************************************
    Alternate chorus - heres a different way to play the chorus
                       I think both sound good.

   Am       Cmaj13        D9         Dm9
      Black heart leaking oil in the pan
              Am               Cmaj13           D9           Dm9
      Dealing insults with his free hand in the hospital bed bleeding
   Am       Cmaj13    D9             Dm9      
      Black heart       you shot the plan to hell
              Am     Cmaj13        D9      Dm9
      And the apathy eats you up inside.
   ******************************************************************

Instrumental part:

Am  G  F  Em
Am  G  F  Em

Adding some fill to this part sounds good
I do something like this:

Going from G to F:

2:26

e|---------|
B|-3--1--1-|
G|-0-----2-|
D|-0-----3-|
A|-2-----3-|
E|-3-----1-|

and when you're on Em just about to return to Am:

2:32

e|--------1-0-----|
B|------0-----0-1-|
G|-0--0---------2-|
D|-2--2---------2-|
A|-2--2---------0-|
E|-0--0-----------|


Chorus
Instrumental Part - End on Am

4:06

   Am              Cmaj13         D9             Dm9
e|-------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------1---------------1--------------1--------------1-------|
G|---2------2---2----2-----2---2----2-----2---2----2-----2-----|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-0---0------0----2---2-----2---------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------2---2-----2----1---1-----1---|

Outro

Am        Cmaj13            D9            Dm9
      Someone    say a hail Mary for this house.
Am              Cmaj13      D9             Dm9
      Bless the corners and burn the devil out.

Organ outro can be played:

Am G Em F
Am G F Em
Am (Fade)
