No Rest For The Wicked
(Lennon & Maisy cover of the Cage the Elephant song)

[Intro]
| Am           | Am   G       | Am           | Am   G       |
  Ooh. Ooh, ooh  Ooh. Ooh, ooh, ooh. Ooh, ooh  Ooh. Ooh, ooh

[Verse 1]
      Am                                   C
I was walking down the street when out the corner of my eye
        Dm                              G  Em
I saw a pretty little thing approaching me .. 
               Am                   C
She said "I've never seen a man who looks so all alone,
             Dm                Am G
Oh you could use a little company .. 
           Am                       C
And if you pay the right price your evening will be nice,
            Dm                   G    Em
And you can go and send me on my way" ..
              Am                             C
You're such a sweet young thing, why did you do this to yourself?
    Dm               Am <>    
She looked at me and she said,

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

[Verse 2]
         Am                              C
Not even fifteen minutes later I'm still walking down the street
        Dm                           G     Em
I saw a shadow of a man creep out of sight ..
            Am                             C
And then he swept up from behind, he put a gun up to my head
           Dm                            G     Em
He made it clear he wasn't looking for a fight ..
          Am                                  C
He said, "Give me all you've got. I want your money not your life
           Dm                               G      Em
But if you try to make a move I won't think twice" ..
         Am                C 
I said, "Take my cash, but first I gotta ask
              Dm                              Am <>    
What made you live this kind of life?" And he said,

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

 | Am | Am | Am | Am | 

[Verse 3]
            Am                            C
Well, now a couple hours passed and I was sitting in my house
            Dm                            G   Em
The day was winding down and coming to an end ..
     Am                              C
So I turned on the TV and flipped it over to the news
           Dm                          G    Em
And what I saw I almost couldn't comprehend ..
        Am                          C
I saw a preacher man in cuffs taken money from the church
            Dm                                 G     Em
Stuffed his bank account with righteous dollar bills ..
      Am                      C
But I can't say much 'cause I know we're all the same
   Dm                        Am <>
We all need to satisfy those thrills. 

[Chorus]
              Am                    C      G 
No, no, there ain't no rest for the wicked .. 
Am                  C     G
Money don't grow on trees .. 
      Am                  C         G
I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
            Am                        C    G
There ain't nothing in this world for free ..
         Am                 C          G
I know I can't slow down, I can't hold back
           Am             C     G
Though you know, I wish I could .. 
          Am                    C      G
No, there ain't no rest for the wicked ..
         Am <>           
Until we close our eyes for good


Charted for my daughter by Dexex

I write chord charts to show how, as a rhythm guitarist, 
I play songs. I don't claim they are the "right" way. They're not 
intended to be taken as tabs which notate exactly how a song was played 
on a recording.
