Sinister Kid  The Black Keys

The basic chords for this song are Am Em Dm, I'm sure you can figure that out based on
the song how the rhythm goes. I think it sounds better if you CAPO on the 5th fret
transposing into the fingerings of Em Bm Am. You can try what you like.
CAPO 5 (optional)
Intro (Em Bm Am in rhythm with the bass)
Em (palm mute) Bm (Bend down entire chord)
Well, the crooks are out
And the streets are gray
You know I wouldn't have it
Any other way, yeah
Em (palm mute) Bm (Bend down entire chord)
Your mother's words
They're, they're ringing still
But your mother
Don't pay our bills, yeah
[Em]A sinister kid, [Bm]is a [Am]kid w[Em]ho
[Em]Runs to meet his ma[Bm]ker[Am] [Em]
[Em]A drop dead sprint from the[Bm] day [Am]he's [Em]born
[Em]Straight into hi[Bm]s mak[Am]ers a[Em]rms
[Em]And that's me, tha[Bm]t's m[Am]e[Em]
[Em]The boy with the broken halo[Bm] [Am] [Em]
[Em]That's me, that's me[Bm] [Am] [Em]
[Em]The devil won't let me be[Bm] [Am] [Em]
Em (palm mute) Bm (Bend down entire chord)
I got a tortured mind
And my blade is sharp
A bad combination
In the dark
Em (palm mute) Bm (Bend down entire chord)
If I kill a man
In the first degree
Baby, would you
Would you flee with me?
(Chorus Repeated as necessary)
