               Don't Play Cards With Satan - Daniel Johnston
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Christian Demmings
Email: cdemmings@hotmail.com

Tuning: Daniel Johnston signature tuning; or some crazy, off-version of Standard. If
like to replicate the live version off the 1990 album, turn all your keys a 1/4 turn in
directions and punch your guitar, rather than strumming it. He seems to play it 
every performance.

This tab is how I play it. On the G and C chords I'm really only strumming the E, A, and
strings, and picking the G string each time. Satan!

G
Don't play cards with Satan
      C                 G
He'll deal you an awful hand
G
Don't play cards with Satan
      C                 G
He'll deal you an awful hand
      A                        G    C         G
Did I ever stop and tell you I am a desperate man?
  G                        C            G
I thought I saw a bluebird sitting on a post
A
Shiver down my spine
G                    C    G
I thought it was the Holy Ghost
G
I heard the word before
      C                G
And I knew that it was good

Somebody oughta do like the Good Book should
  G                        C             G
I heard the voice of Satan crying in the woods
  A                       G     C    G
I saw my own heart laying black with blood

G
Don't play cards with Satan
      C                 G
He'll deal you an awful hand

Please believe me
A                              G     C        G
Did I ever stop and tell you I am a desperate man?
G C         G
A desperate man

Satan!
