        | ~ = 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,

                                                 '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)

                                                        [Guitar Solo]

                                                      [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 
                                                                    (over and over)
