LYRICS:


let's begin, I am ready let's begin

F    Am   C   G         Am
sell my soul    to him

Am
shed my skin, I just wanna shed my skin

               F   Am  C   G
I don't wanna sell my soul   to him

Am        G  Am                  Am          G  Am
mechanize,       city bursts and farmers die

          F    Am  C   G
they cry, sell my soul   to him

Am             G  Am                            Am               G  Am
sleep face down       in a goods train heading south in the rain

F    Am  C   G
sell my soul   to him

Em         F#m     D       A          Bm     G
   in this world I often think you'd understand me

Em          F#m     D       A          Bm    G
   in these words I often think you'd recognize me

           D                       F#m
'cause I just wanna swim with the fish in the sea

       Bm                        D9
and I want faith to heal so that I can be clean


[solo]

[insert Peter's rant here]

Am
I just wanna celebrate

                 F    Am  C   G         Am
I'm not going to sell my soul   to him


when you look right in

F    Am  C   G       Am
sell my soul   to him


you're gonna come on done

F    Am  C   G         Am
sell my soul   to him

F    Am  C   G         Am
sell my soul   to him


End.
