Johnny Cash
The Devil to Pay
Capo 1st Fret
Key of C



      C               Am
Go on, girl, take your chances
        D                              G
See how long you can go on from man to man
      Em                                 Am
I can read the lines between your stolen glances
      D                                 G
And I know its time to fold this losing hand
            C            G
cause youre drawn to the flame
       C              G
By the thrill and the shame
       C                  F                 G
Of the cheating game they taught you how to play
          C          Em            Am         F
You've got nothing to lose but your soul girl
          C         G        Am (strum once and pick the intro or play Am)
And you've only the devil to pay

           G                                                                       G
You've been flying so high you don't know, that you're blind to the writin' on the wall
        D                                                            G
But some day you'll look down and you'll find you've got no place to fall
        C                  G
When the bright lights are gone 
         C         G
you'll be standing alone
   C            F              G
Forsaken in the naked light of day
            C                  Em           Am     F
Then you'll know that it's all over but the dying
           C             G        Am (strum once and pick the intro or play Am)
And you've still got the devil to pay

VERSE 2 (same pattern as VERSE 1)

Join your friends while you got 'em
Cause you know they're gettin' fewer every day
You can't wait to let them take you to the bottom
And I'm gettin' tired of standin' in your way
But when you hit the ground don't come looking around
For the pieces of the love you threw away
That's the price of the high life you're livin'
And you still got the devil to pay
