Run Devil Run  Paul McCartney



Wh[B]en he gets through, he'll be coming after you,
l[A]isten what I'm saying to you r[A-G-]u-un.[A]  Run devil run.[E]
B[E]y a swamp in Alabama in the cold in the damp.
S[E]ittin reading by the light of a kerosene lamp.
L[A]ives a holly roller with a mission on her mind.
G[E]ot to spread the word to anybody she can find.
Y[B]ou can hear her screaming any time in night or day.
Th[E]is is what she says to keep the demons away.
R[E]un devil run, the angels having fun,
m[E]aking winners out of sinners better leave before it's done.
Wh[B]en he gets through, he'll be coming after you,
l[A]isten what I'm saying to you r[A-G-]u-un.[A]  Run devil run.[E]
Her brother and her sister said that she brought them down.
Steppin on the bus that was heading to town.
There they started drinking, they got into a fight.
The sheriff introduced them to the jailhouse for a night.
When the holy roller came to town to pay the bail,
this is what she sang as she was leaving the jail.

Run devil run, the angels...

Inter:(A E A B) x2

Well, by the middle of the summer they were back in the shack.
Picking cotton for a livin keep 'em on the right track.
Visiting the nieghbours trying to spread the good news.
Singing gospel music with a hint of the blues.
All of them determined to deliver the goods,
now you hear the music coming out on the woods.

Run devil run, the angels...
Y[E]ou'ld better r[A-G-]u-un.[A]  Run devil r[E]un.
Y[E]ou'ld better r[A-G-]u-un.[A]  Run devil r[E]un.
