About this tab version
So this is a really simple but pretty song. I'm pretty confident these are the right chords. Capo on 3 to put it in the original key, but for girls it may be difficult to sing this low, so one could play it with the chords G, D, A, Bm with no capo and place capo higher as need be. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming Is this strumming pattern correct? Yes No

[Intro]
             C               G 
I sold my own soul to the Devil 
            D                Em
Said, “You don’t need your heart”. 
          C                 G
In this world full of trouble. 
           D                Em
Where the madness won’t stop. 
        C        G
And they take advantage 
        D              Em
And they run for the hills. 
          C      G 
‘Cause a life is harder 
          D              Em
When they swallow the pills.
           C           G            D        Em
Being lonely.  

C       G     D     Em

[Verse 1] 
        C                G
Took a walk with an angel 
        D                  Em
Because she said she can’t fly. 
             C                      G
I screamed out, “Can you forgive me?” 
       D              Em
Before she said goodbye. 
       C         G
Well, go into darkness 
 D        Em
before I try. 
 C           G                 D           Em      
Is life worth living when you need to get by?
I’m still lonely.  

[Chorus]
 C          G               D           Em
I was the king but not the king of anything. 
           C         G
I'm still lonely. 
             D        Em  
I’m still lonely.
  C         G               D           Em
Call me Mr. Righteous even if I always sin. 
            C          G
I'm still lonely 
            D          Em
I’m still lonely.

[INSTRUMENTAL]   
C    G    D   Em

[Verse 2] 
       C           G
Told myself I was going 
      D            Em       C
get out of this place. 
               G   
Find running water 
      D            Em       C
And find a new space.
           G           D
But in my own time 
         Em         C
I will know 
            G
That deep inside 
          D        Em
We don’t ever let go.  

[Chorus]
C          G               D            Em
I was the king but not the king of anything.
C     G      D     Em
C           G               D            Em
Call me Mr. Righteous even if I always sin.

C     G    D     Em

[Outro]
               C             G     
I sold my own soul to the Devil 
             D                 Em
Said, “You don’t need your heart”. 
               C              G
I sold my own soul to the Devil 
             C                  G
Said, “You don’t need your heart”
