'Cause I'm so far even you can't see

         You're going to pay for it, wait and see

 E      F#m  A            C#m    B   A
(Back it up, baby)
                   Before I turn you loose

 E      F#m  A        C#m           B          E
(Back it up, now)
          You'll feel good but that ain't no excuse

 E      F#m  A         C#m  B A
(Back it up, baby)
         I believe it, sure enough

 E      F#m  A         C#m       B       E

         We all need devotion to back it up
