About this tab version
This version is the only full version on the site, with actual chords for the chorus and a way to play it acoustically. Was this info helpful? Yes No
I wanted a way to play this song in a simple acoustic way, so I came up with a little riff to play over
the verses, and I play chords over the chorus.

e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|-------3---------3---------3---------3---------|
G|-----2---2-----2---2-----2---2-----2---2-------|  Dm riff
D|--0--------------------------------------------|
A|------------3---------1---------3--------------| note: you can also play an open A string on the "4" beat,
E|-----------------------------------------------| Either one works with the rhythm. 


[Intro]

Dm riff


[Verse 1]

Dm riff
Living in the night

'Neath devils torn asunder

You call on me

To solve a crooked rhyme

As I'm closing in

Imposing on your slumber

You call on me

As bells begin to chime


[Chorus]

Dm               Bb
Are you on the square?
F               C
Are you on the level?
Dm                Bb                    F
Are you ready to swear right here right now
             C
Before the devil
Dm                  Bb
That you're on the square
F                     C
That you're on the level
Dm                    Bb                     F             C
That you're ready to stand right here right now
                  Dm
Right here right now


[Verse 2]

Dm riff
Hiding from the light

Sacrificing nothing

Still you call on me

For entrance to the shrine

Hammering the nails

Into a sacred coffin

You call on me

For powers clandestine


[Chorus]

Dm               Bb
Are you on the square?
F               C
Are you on the level?
Dm                Bb                    F
Are you ready to swear right here right now
             C
Before the devil
Dm                  Bb
That you're on the square
F                     C
That you're on the level
Dm                    Bb                     F             C
That you're ready to stand right here right now
                  Dm
Right here right now


[Chorus]

Dm               Bb
Are you on the square?
F               C
Are you on the level?
Dm                Bb                    F
Are you ready to swear right here right now
             C
Before the devil
Dm                  Bb
That you're on the square
F                     C
That you're on the level
Dm                    Bb                     F             C
That you're ready to stand right here right now
                  Dm        Bb
Right here right now
                  F          C
Right here right now
                  Dm        Bb
Right here right now 
                  F          C
Right here right now
              N.C.
Right here right now

apologies, forgot to mention that for the riff to work best, i use my middle and pinky finger on the 3rd and 2nd string respectively. ends up looking like this
