 Am      C      Am    E    Am      C      Am     E7
Help me get my feet...    back to solid ground,
               Am             C      Am     E
'Cause we're walking to the Devil's beat,
           Am        C       Am    E7
And it's trying to bring us down!


           Am               C      Am          E
Well, the Devil's got us rolling a six-sided dice,
           Am            C         Am             E7
And it's burning up the oil, and melting down the ice,
         Am               C            Am      E
And the bank tills are ringing to the tune of war!
        Am          C                  Am     E7
Do you ever wonder what it is we're fighting for?


Dm7           G             C                     F
 Oh, oh - oh, oh! It don't feel so good when the sun don't shine,
Dm7           G              C                         F
 Oh, oh - oh, oh! We gotta leave this place, leave it all behind,
Dm7           G              C                    E       E7
 Oh, oh - oh, oh, before I loose my head, and I loose my mind!


 Am      C      Am    E    Am       C     Am     E7
Help me get my feet...    back to solid ground,
               Am             C      Am     E
'Cause we're walking to the Devil's beat,
           Am        C       Am    E7
And it's trying to bring us down!


      Am            C              Am     E
Oo, sweet Mother Nature's such a lonely girl,
  Am              C          Am        E7
What's she gonna do when we sell the world?
 Am             C             Am        E
Time will only tell, if the prophecy's true,
          Am           C                Am      E7
Has the Devil got the beat, or has the beat got you?


Dm7           G             C                     F
 Oh, oh - oh, oh! It don't feel so good when the sun don't shine,
Dm7           G              C                         F
 Oh, oh - oh, oh! We gotta leave this place, leave it all behind,
Dm7           G              C                    E       E7
 Oh, oh - oh, oh, before I loose my head, and I loose my mind!


[No chords - muffle strings and scrub rhythm]
Help me get my feet...back to solid ground,
'Cause we're walking to the Devil's beat,
And it's trying to bring us down!

Come on, help me get my feet...back to solid ground,
'Cause we're walking to the Devil's beat,
And it's trying to bring us down!


Dm7           G             C                     F
 Oh, oh - oh, oh! It don't feel so good when the sun don't shine,
Dm7           G              C                         F
 Oh, oh - oh, oh! We gotta leave this place, leave it all behind,
Dm7           G              C                    E       E7
 Oh, oh - oh, oh, before I loose my head, and I loose my mind!


 Am      C      Am    E    Am       C     Am     E7
Help me get my feet...    back to solid ground,
               Am             C      Am     E
'Cause we're walking to the Devil's beat,
           Am        C
And it's trying to bring us...

...down!
