G                         D     C/G
I used to be an only son
G D C/G
My heart was but a stranger
G D C/G
It wallowed in the races won
G D C/G
and it craves the petty dangers.
D*
When it sat alone,
C/G
and pined and pondered
D*           C/G
On the chosen roads it had to wander.
  G         D      C/G
 Ohhhh ohh ohhhh x4

[Chorus]
G                                  D      C/G
Well I used to be an only son.
G                       D      C/G
My heart was but a gambler
G                      D           C/G
Oh heavy as a loaded gun!
G                D               C/G
It howled above the weather

[Verse 2]
D*                                   C/G
And its evil ways let me forget her
              D*                               C/G
And this dirty blood will burn forever,
C/G
in us together.
  G         D      C/G
 Ohhhh ohh ohhhh x4

[Chorus]
G                                  D      C/G
Well I used to be an only son.
G                       D      C/G
My heart was but a gambler
G                      D           C/G
Oh heavy as a loaded gun!
G                D               C/G
It howled above the weather

D*                                   C/G
And its evil ways let me forget her
              D*                               C/G
And this dirty blood will burn forever,
C/G
in us together.
  G         D      C/G
 Ohhhh ohh ohhhh x4

the "E*" chord is actually a D chord variation. It's a C chord (technically i guess) moved up a whole step (two frets in this case) which is a D. An E would be if that shape was moved up another step. great tab though! i love this song

Also a lot of the chords are in the wrong spots over the lyrics.
