Way Down in the Hole  The Blind Boys of Alabama

Way Down In The Hole - The Blind Boys Of Alabama
This was the theme to 'The Wire' season 1
Original by Tom Waits?
I use the Bbm and Eb chords up on 6th fret, then slide down for the F7
and I think it's 16 bar blues not 12 so watch the timing/phrasing
I got the chords off Ukulele Hunt... so thanks!
Intro same as verse chords
( Tab from: )
If you walk through the ga[Bbm]rden, you gotta watch your back
Well I beg your pa[Eb]rdon, walk the straight and narrow [Bbm]track
If you walk with jesus, he?s gonna save your s[Eb]oul
You gotta keep the d[Bbm]evil
[F7]Way down in the h[Bbm]ole
He?s got the fire and the fury, at his command
Well you don?t have to worry, if you hold on to jesus hand
We?ll all be safe from satan
When the thunder rolls
Just gotta help me keep the devil
Way down in the hole
Instrumental break
All the angels sing about jesus? mighty sword
And they?ll shield you with their wings, n' keep you close to the lord
Don?t pay heed to temptation
For his hands are so cold
You gotta help me keep the devil
Way down in the hole
