The Devil Is My Running Mate
Album: Sirens of the Ditch

    Em          Am      Em
The Devil is my running mate
                     Am       Em
And this here is his favorite state
    Am
I'm sorry you folks had to wait
   Em              Am      Em
He always likes to show up late


No that ain't a rainbow, son
Street lamps on petrolium
Let's pull in here and get us some
Supplies are runnin' out now

It ain't the reason for the war
That's meanness, boy and nothing more
They tried to do this all before
But Daddy wouldn't let them


CHORUS:
D         Am      C               Em
Sometimes I don't know what I got into
    D         Am      C                Em
And sometimes I can't stand to read my name
    D         Am    C               Em
And sometimes I can only hear their voices
D          Am                C
Casting me back from where I came


The Devil is my running mate
Confusion is his favorite state
Surely you folks can relate
I know we've gathered here to hate

It doesn't matter who we blame
As long as you all hear a name
All them bastards look the same
Everyone is guilty

Everybody look away
Look away, look away
It doesn't matter what I say
It's what I do that's shifty


CHORUS:
And sometimes I don't know what we got into
And sometimes I don't think I know a thing
And sometimes I can't even see the trees now
For the flames, for the flames


The Devil is my runnin' mate
And this here is his favorite state
There ain't no other candidate
It wouldn't matter anyway

    Em          Am      Em
The Devil is my runnin' mate
    Em          Am      Em
The Devil is my runnin' mate
    Em          Am      Em
The Devil is my runnin' mate
