a-ny lower (lower and lower)
The hounds of hell are

  There ain't no pot of 
    C#            Dm
gold  just copper tokens
Am            Bb
  I found the key to life
C#             Dm
  the lock was broken
Am         Bb
  All my accomplishments
C#                 Dm7  Em-F
  are best left unspoken

(Repeat Refrain)
