(intro riff)

(G   Dm-sus4   Cadd9 )  x 6

VERSE 1:
G
I was born my papa's son 
  Cadd9               Dm-sus4     (G   Dm-sus4   Cadd9)x2
A wanderin' eye and a smokin' gun 
    G
Now some of you would live through me
Cadd9          Dm-sus4            (G   Dm-sus4   Cadd9)x2 
Lock me up and throw away the key 
       G
Or just find a place to hide away 
Cadd9              Dm-sus4       (G   Dm-sus4   Cadd9)x2
Hope that I'll just go away

CHORUS:
        Em     Dsus4   Cadd9      (G   Dm-sus4   Cadd9)x2
I feel alright,      I feel alright tonight  
        Em     Dsus4   Cadd9      (G   Dm-sus4   Cadd9)x2
I feel alright,      I feel alright tonight 
         
(same chord pattern throughout the song)
                                     
VERSE 2:
I'll bring you precious contraband 
And ancient tales from distant lands 
Of conquerors and concubines and 
Conjurers from darker times 
Betrayal and conspiracy 
Sacrilege and heresy

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL
( G     Cadd9     Dm-sus4     Cadd9 )    x 2      (listen to get the timing right)
( G    Dm-sus4    Cadd9 )                x 4
                                             
VERSE 3:
I got every thing you wont or need 
Your darkest fear, your fondest dream 
I ask you questions, tell you lies 
Criticize and sympathize 
Be careful what you wish for friend 
Because I've been to hell and now I'm back again

CHORUS

OUTRO:
                (G   Dm-sus4   Cadd9) x2
I feel alright    
                 G   Dm-sus4   Cadd9   (G) 
I feel alright
