Get Thee Behind Me Satan
Billy Joe Shaver
Album: Everybody's Brother (2007)

Chorus

A
Get thee behind me Satan 
         D               A                       E
For I command it in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, of Nazareth
A
Get thee behind me Satan 
         D               A           E           A
For I command it in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ

A                                D
I looked into the mirror and I couldn't see myself
      A                          E
The demons that were in me had turned me wrong side out
   A                          D
I knew inside my soul I was headed straight for hell
        A                          E             A
But I couldn't for my life figure how to help myself

(Repeat Chorus)

A                                        D
The moon and stars were hidden by the shroud that clouded 'round
         A                                  E
I could see my loved ones weeping as they lowered me in the ground
    A                          D
No word was spoken over me I almost thought I died
        A                             E       A 
Then I knew I wasn't dead I had been buried alive

(Repeat Chorus)

A                           D
I couldn't see my hand in front of my face
    A                             E
I knew that I was buried in the deepest darkest place
      A                           D
The deeds that I had done put me in this awful place
         A                               E                   A
Then I felt the stir inside me and the smoke came 'cross my face

(Repeat Chorus)
