         Am                      F          E
i was born from an angel, she raised me properly
       Am                               F            E
i knew what i wasn't to do, i knew what i wasn't to see
             Am                            F                E
but when you reach a certain age, your destiny it comes to life
           Am                                         F                E
so don't you bite the hand that feeds you, or it may cut you with its knife

         Am           
it permeates all through my bones
          F              E
i let it live, i help it grow
             Am                     F                 E
i said my cup it runeth over, well I'm gonna let it flow
         Am                 F                 E
so I shot a man in muncie, just to watch him die
          Am                               
my mother asked me if it pleased me
       F               E
and i couldn't tell a lie
      
      Dm   Am       E          Am
now jesus died for them, it's true
     Dm      Am        E
but what's a devil to doooooooo?

         Am                 F
when the saints go marching in
          C                       E
i won't be there, 'cause i love my sin
        Am                F
am i so bad that you hate me
            C                  E
there was a time when i could see
            Am                 F
my hopes and dreams, they are no more
            C                          E
i'm not a rich man, but blessed are the poor
            Am                F
old man, forgive me, i turned away
             C                  E
i won't come back, so i have to pay

Am, E, Am, E, F, E
[na, na, na...]

              Am
and there is rules to life, I know,
             F                E
and if you follow them you'll go
           Am
up to the mountains and the clouds
              F              E
and where the golden rivers flow
          Am                      F                E
but i've always been so good at breaking all the rules
          Am
i wasn't made to be their robot
       F               E
and i ain't nobody's fool

          Am
i am the goat that got away
        F                     E
but i know there will come a day
             Am   
when i'll be punished for my mind
          F          E
'cause i led myself astray
        Am
i am a work of art, i know
       F                E
i was created but down below
             Am
and if it's evil that you're planting
          F                E
then it's evil that will grow

      Dm   Am       E          Am
now jesus died for them, it's true
     Dm      Am        E
but what's a devil to doooooooo?

         Am                 F
when the saints go marching in
          C                       E
i won't be there, 'cause i love my sin
        Am                F
am i so bad that you hate me
            C                  E
there was a time when i could see
            Am                 F
my hopes and dreams, they are no more
            C                          E
i'm not a rich man, but blessed are the poor
            Am                F
old man, forgive me, i turned away
             C                  E
i won't come back, so i have to pay

Am, E, Am, E, F, E
