The Devil Is My Running Mate  Jason Isbell

The devil is my [Em]running mate[Am] [Em]
[Em]And this here is his [Am]favourite [Em]state
[Am]Sorry you folks had to wait.
[Em]He always likes to [Am]show up [Em]late
[Em]No that ain't a [Am]rainbow, [Em]son
[Em]Streetlamps on [Am]petrole[Em]um
[Am]Let's pull in here and get us some
[Em]Supplies are runn[Am]ing out [Em]now
[Em]It ain't the reason [Am]for the [Em]war
[Em]That's meanness boy and [Am]nothing [Em]more
[Am]They tried to do this all before
[Em]But daddy would[Am]n't let [Em]them
[D]Sometimes [Am]I don't [C]know what I got in[Em]to
[D]Sometimes [Am]I can't [C]stand to read my [Em]name
[D]Sometimes [Am]I can [C]only hear their voi[Em]ces
[D]Casting [Am]me back [C]from where I [Em]came
[Em]The devil is my [Am]running [Em]mate
[Em]Confusion is his [Am]favourite [Em]state
[Am]Surely you folks can relate
[Em]I know we've gathered [Am]here to [Em]hate
[Em]It doesn't matter [Am]who we [Em]blame
[Em]As long as you all [Am]hear a [Em]name
[Am]All them bastards look the same
[Em]Everyone is [Am]guilty[Em]
[Em]Everybody [Am]look a[Em]way
[Em]Look away, [Am]look a[Em]way
[Am]It doesn't matter what I say
[Em]It's what I do [Am]that's shi[Em]fty
[D]Sometimes [Am]I don't [C]know what we got in[Em]to
[D]Sometimes [Am]I don't [C]think I know a [Em]thing
[D]Sometimes [Am]I can't [C]even see the trees [Em]now
[D]For the [Am]flames, [C]for the [Em]flames
[Em]The devil is my [Am]running [Em]mate
[Em]And this here is his [Am]favourite [Em]state
[Am]There ain't no other candidate
[Em]It wouldn't matter [Am]any[Em]way
[Em]The devil is my [Am]running [Em]mate
[Em]The devil is my [Am]running [Em]mate
[Em]The devil is my [Am]running [Em]mate
