Silver and Gold - Trampled by Turtles

Tabbed by Mud Duck.  Love the Turtles.  I also like to play around with D sus and 
A sus.  Comments or suggestions are welcome.  This is my first posting. 

[D]  [ E]   [A]   [E]  [D]  [A]  [E]  [A] 

I  [A] went down to the [D] Devil
[A] Devil gonna sell my [D] soul
[A] Gonna Come back [D] home, my 
Little love with my [E] pockets full of
Silver and [A] gold

Well you’re out of luck said the devil
I got no silver and gold
The police man he come taken all my land and 
He left me in a hole

And I’m [D] on [E]my [A] own
No [E] place to call my [D] home
[A] Ain’t no pretty gal gonna
[E]  waste her time on [A] me

Well, I’ll give you 20 women
Pretty gals for your soul
They’ll love you sweet all the good days of the week
Till your buried and your dead and your cold

Well, I already got me a woman
That’s why I look so old
If I go home she’s gonna leave me on my own
‘Cause I got no silver and gold



Well I give you  a brand new motor car
A motor car for your soul
You can drive all around with a good gal on the town
You can take her right down the road

Well, I don’t want your brand new motor car
A motor car for my soul 
I have to bust my ass just to buy a tank of gas
I can drive right down the road


Well I’m on my own
No place to call my home
Ain’t no pretty gal gonna
Waste her time on me   

Well I’m on my own
No place to call my home
Ain’t no pretty gal gonna
Waste her life on me

The chords are right on, but trampled by turtles usually plays at Capo 2 transposed down 2 steps (so the opening forms are C-D-G-... etc.)

^^ Stickasylum is right. It sounds much softer like they play it. Also it's a neat trick to slide down with the normal c major shape a whole step (2 frets) and that's a D major. Do that in the course. Sounds mellow and sad like Trampled by Turtles.
