        | ~ = Vibrato     |                  As I get closer, my dreams get farther
        | ^ = Bend        |                I climb the ladder, but you kick it over
        | r = Release bend|                  Thirsty for water, you give me vinegar
        | h = Hammer-on   |     When I drink your medicine, it just makes me sicker
        | p = Pull-off    |                               
        | x = Dead String |                             [Pre-chorus]
                               I dug a hole so deep, I'm gonna drown in my mistakes
                                                           Can't even sell my soul, 
                                                        
                                                        [Transition]
                                                 'cause it ain't worth shit to take
                                                       
                                                        [Full Chorus]
                                  I've got the Devil on my shoulder (over and over)
                                  And I just can't sink any lower (lower and lower)
                          The hounds of hell are getting closer (closer and closer)
                                                  I've got the Devil on my shoulder 
                                                                    (over and over)

                                                        [Full Verse]
                                                  Follow the rainbow, my lucky omen
                                     There ain't no pot of gold, just copper tokens
                                       I found the key to life, the lock was broken
                                     All my accomplishments, are best left unspoken

                                                         [Pre-chorus]
                               I dug a hole so deep, I'm gonna drown in my mistakes
                                                           Can't even sell my soul,

                                                        [Full Chorus]
                                  I've got the Devil on my shoulder (over and over)
                                  And I just can't sink any lower (lower and lower)
                          The hounds of hell are getting closer (closer and closer)

                                                      [Breakdown Part 1]
                                                    My horror story, is nearly over

                                                      [Breakdown Part 2]
                                                  I said I'm sorry, but I was sober
                                           I beg for mercy, from my infernal friend
                                      The one that drives the nails, into my coffin
                                                      
                                                        [Bass Line]
                                  I've got the Devil on my shoulder (over and over)
                                  And I just can't sink any lower (lower and lower)
                          The hounds of hell are getting closer (closer and closer)
                                                  I've got the Devil on my shoulder 
                                                                    (over and over)

                                                       [Final Chorus]
                                   I've got the Devi on my shoulder (over and over) 
                                  And I just can't sink any lower (lower and lower)
                              They've come to take me, take me over (over and over)
                                                  I've got the Devil on my shoulder

Sorry about the SUPER elaborate tab people, I'm going to come back to it in the near future and clean it up; make it more compact + simple.
