Intro: E  G   A x4   

         E        
I was walking down the street,
               G
When out the corner of my eye
          A                   G      D
I saw a pretty little thing approaching me.
                E
She said "I've never seen a man
      G
Who looks so all alone,
            A          G    D
Could you use a little company?
        E
If you pay the right price
       G
Your evening will be nice,
            A                 G     D
And you can go and send me on my way."
                 E
I said "You're such a sweet young thing
        G           
Why you do this to yourself?"
      A               G                D     
She looked at me and this is what she said,

 E                                 G A D                     
"Oh, there ain't no rest for the wicked,
 E                  G A D
Money don't grow on trees.
   E
I got bills to pay,
       G A D
I got mouths to feed,
             E                       G A D
There ain't nothing in this world for free.
         E
I know I can't slow down,
   G A D
I can't hold back,
            E                  G A D
Though you know, I wish I could.
          E                      G A D
No there ain't no rest for the wicked,
         E                    G A D
Until we close our eyes for good".

          E        
Not even fifteen minutes later
               G
I'm still walking down the street,
          A                   G      D
When I saw a shadow of a man creep out of sight.
         E
Then he walks up from behind
            G
And puts a gun up to my head,
        A                    G         D
He made it clear he wasn't looking for a fight.
          E
He said "Give me all you've got
              G
I want your money not your life,
           A                            G      D
But if you try to make a move I won't think twice."
         E
I said "You can have my cash
                G
But first you know I got to ask
              A                        G     D
What made you want to live this kind of life?"


 E                                 G A D                     
"Oh, there ain't no rest for the wicked,
 E                  G A D
Money don't grow on trees.
   E
I got bills to pay,
       G A D
I got mouths to feed,
             E                       G A D
There ain't nothing in this world for free.
         E
I know I can't slow down,
   G A D
I can't hold back,
            E                  G A D
Though you know, I wish I could.
          E                      G A D
No there ain't no rest for the wicked,
         E                    G A D
Until we close our eyes for good".


        E
Now a couple hours passed
             G
And I was sitting at my house,
                 A              G          D
The day was winding down and coming to an end.
       E
So I turned on the TV
                G
And flipped it over to the news,
          A               G          D
And what I saw I almost couldn't comprehend.
         E                                G
I saw a preacher man in cuffs he'd taken money from the church,
              A                   G              D
He's got this bank account with righteous dollar bills.
            E
But even still I can't say much
           G
Because I know we're all the same,
              A            G            D
Oh yes we've all got to satisfy those thrills.


 E                                 G A D                     
"Oh, there ain't no rest for the wicked,
 E                  G A D
Money don't grow on trees.
   E
I got bills to pay,
       G A D
I got mouths to feed,
             E                       G A D
There ain't nothing in this world for free.
         E
I know I can't slow down,
   G A D
I can't hold back,
            E                  G A D
Though you know, I wish I could.
          E                      G A D
No there ain't no rest for the wicked,
         E                    Em
Until we close our eyes for good
