This is a new song off of Great Big Sea's new album "Fortune's Favour".
It's my favorite from the album and I figured it out by ear.
It sounds better with power chords on an electric guitar, but here are the
acoustic chords. I will try and put up an electric tab in the future.
If you have any suggestions/comments just leave a comment in the comment
section and I'll get back to you.

Note that you can replace the C's with Cadd9, but they both sound the same, depending on 
picky you are.

Tuning: Standard

[Intro]
G
Love me now while we're alive
         C                 G
It's the best thing we can do
      C             G
We'll have no time upon cloud nine
   A                    D
So heaven on earth will have to do

      G
I can sing like a bird, and dance like a demon
      C            G
And I do it all so well
                C
'Cause I made a deal with the devil
    G      Em
And when I die
C         D           G
I'm goin' straight to hell!

[Verse]
G
Standin' at the crossroad
           C                   G
He offered wine, women and song
  C                    G
A riches, fame and fortune
      A                   D
In my hands from that day on

(Same as last paragraph)
I was granted there and then
A life of rock & roll
And it seemed like such a bargain
For just one eternal soul

[Pre-Chorus]

C
I know I'll curse this damn decision
            G
And I'll regret it 'till the moment I fall
            A
But I'll be makin' the most of a bad situation
   D
Until my number's called


[Chorus]

G
Love me now while we're alive
         C                   G
It's the best thing we can do
           C             G
Oh we'll have no time upon cloud nine
   A                    D
Heaven on earth will have to do

      G
I can sing like a bird, and dance like a demon
      C            G
And I do it all so well
                C
'Cause I made a deal with the devil
    G      Em
And when I die
C         D           G
I'm goin' straight to hell!
G  Em
Oh yeah!
C         D           G
I'm goin' straight to hell!


[Verse 2, same chords as first verse]
There's times I swear I've come out on top
In this ill conceived contract
And there's nights I say it's a small price to pay
For the life and times I've had

And I think "Here's to the gents and ladies"
And all the foolish times we spent
They cost me afterlife in paradise
And they were worth every single cent

[Pre-Chorus 2, same chords as first pre-chorus]
So have a dance with the walkin' 'dam
Before my time is done
'Cause a deal is a deal and I don't expect
Fire and brimstone'll be much fun!

[Chorus]

[Pre-bridge]
G
I said straight to hell
Go to hell!

[Bridge]
[instrumental, same chords as chorus]

[Verse 3, same as others]
I have every expectation
That my final prayer will go unheard
And my veiled deathbed confession
Will not move the mighty Lord

And I'm sure that I'll be sorry
When he slams St. Peter's gate
But I'll dive right into damnation
With a smile across my face!

[Chorus]

C
'Cause I made a deal with the devil
   G      Em
And when I die
C         D           G
I'm goin' straight to hell!
G  Em
Oh yeah!
C         D           G
I'm goin' straight to hell!
G  Em
Oh yeah!
C         D           G
I'm goin' straight to hell!
