 Devils & Dust - Bruce Springsteen
-------------------------------------------------------------
Chords/Tab transcription by Rockcru

I know there are other tab versions of this, but I believe that the tab  archive ought
to show how the artist plays the song.  In order to gain a little more perspective, I
saw the videotape of Bruce playing this song.  There is no capo on  Bruce's guitar.
As much as I could see, the chord forms below  match those in the video.

Drop D tuning on both high and low E stings.  

 Chord Forms: 

    D     Dsus   D(alt)    G   G(alt1) G(alt2)     D/F# Em7    A5
 D--0-----0-------0--------0-----0--------0---------0-----0-----x---|
 B--3-----3-------3--------0-----3--------3---------3-----0-----x---|
 G--0-----0-------2--------0-----0--------0---------2-----0-----2---|
 D--4-----5-------0--------0-----0--------0---------0-----0-----2---|
 A--5-----5-------0--------2-----5--------2---------0-----2-----0---|
 D--0-----0-------0--------0-----5--------0---------4-----2-----x---|

Play the Dsus alternating with D in the introduction and in the verse 
breaks.

[Intro]

 D and Dsus


[Verse 1]

 D                         D and Dsus
 I got my finger on the trigger
                          G
 But I don't know who to trust
                       D      A5
 I look into your eyes
                           D and Dsus
 There's just devils and dust

 D                           D and Dsus
 Long, long way from home, Bobbie
                               G
 Home's a long, long way from us
                          D      A5
 Feel a dirty wind blowin'
                 D and Dsus     
 Devils and dust


[Chorus]

                      G(alt1)
 I got God on my side
                           D/F#
 And I'm just trying to survive
                           Em7
 But if what you do to survive
                          A5
 Kills the things you love
                        G(alt2)
 Fear's a powerful thing
                                      D/F#
 Can turn your heart black you can trust
                              G         A5
 It'll take your God filled soul
                               D and Dsus 
 And fill it with devils and dust


[Verse 2]

                              D and Dsus
 Well I dreamed of you last night
                              G 
 In a field of blood and stone
                       D        A5
 The blood began to dry
                       D and Dsus
 The smell began to rise

 D                                   D and Dsus
 Well I dreamed of you last night, Bob
                           G
 In a field of mud and bone
                       D       A5
 Your blood began to dry
                       D and Dsus    
 The smell began to rise


[Chorus]

                         G(alt1)
 We've got God on our side
                          D/F#
 We're just trying to survive
                           Em7
 But if what you do to survive
                         A5
 Kills the things you love
                     G(alt2)
 Fear's a powerful thing
                                 D/F#
 Turn your heart black you can trust
                              G        A5
 It'll take your God filled soul
                           D and Dsus
 Fill it with Devils and dust
                             G         A5
 It'll take your God filled soul
                           D and Dsus
 Fill it with devils and dust


[Verse 3]

 D                          D and Dsus
 Now every woman and every man
                                 G
 They want to take a righteous stand
                          D          A5
 Find the love that God wills
                           D and Dsus
 And the faith that he commands

 D                             D and Dsus
 I've got my finger on the trigger
                               G
 Tonight faith just ain't enough
                         D         A5               
 And I look inside my heart
                            D and Dsus
 There's just devils and dust


[Chorus]

                         G(alt1)
 We've got God on our side
                          D/F#
 We're just trying to survive
                           Em7
 But if what you do to survive
                         A5
 Kills the things you love
                     G(alt2)
 Fear's a powerful thing
                                 D/F#
 Turn your heart black you can trust
                              G        A5
 It'll take your God filled soul
                           D and Dsus
 Fill it with Devils and dust
                             G         A5
 It'll take your God filled soul
                           D and Dsus
 Fill it with devils and dust


[Outro]

                           G (alt1)
 But I've got God on our side
                           D/F#
 And I'm just trying to survive
                           Em7
 But if what you do to survive
                        A5
 Kills the things you love
                       G(alt2)
 Fear's a dangerous thing
                                  D/F#
 Turn your heart black you can trust
                        G         A5
 Take your God filled soul
                           D and Dsus
 Fill it with devils and dust
                              G        A5
 It'll take your God filled soul
                           D and Dsus
 Fill it with devils and dust


 (Repeat verse 1 chord sequence twice during harmonica solo
 to end.  The video shows Bruce using the D(alt) chord form as the
 concluding chord).

What the hell are you on about, in the video from the DVD, there's clearly a capo on his guitar.

This does however work well regardless.

Springsteen actually recorded two videos to this song. One shows a capo and one doesn't. The one with the capo is on a guitar tuned down one key. The one without is my version, tuned as indicated in my tab.

Capo or not, this is an excellent tab. Spot on in my opinion
