Sympathy for the Devil

	                A                      G
              Please allow me to introduce myself 
                    D      G       Ab   A
              I'm a man of wealth and taste 
                                     G
              I've been around for a long, long year
                    D             G  Ab     A 
              Stole many a man's soul and faith
                                     G
              And I was 'round when Jesus Christ 
                       D         G   Ab   A
              Had his moment of doubt and pain
                                     G 
              Made damn sure that Pilate
                           D          G   Ab  A 
              Washed his hands and sealed his fate 
               E                  
              Pleased to meet you 
                                 A
              Hope you guess my name
                          G 
              But what's puzzling you 
                                   A
              Is the nature of my game
                                   G 
              I stuck around St. Petersberg
                     D                        A 
              When I saw it was a time for a change
                                       G 
              Killed the Czar and his ministers
                   D                 A 
              Anastasia screamed in vain 
                          
              I rode a tank
                        G 
              Held a general's rank
                        D 
              When the Blitzkrieg raged
                      A 
              And the bodies stank 
               E                  
              Pleased to meet you 
                                 A
              Hope you guess my name,oh yeah 
                          G 
              But what's puzzling you 
                                   A
              Is the nature of my game,oh yeah 
                                 
              I watched with glee
                           G       
              While your kings and queens
                              D 
              Fought for ten decades 
                      A
              For the Gods they made
 
              I shouted out
                               G 
              "Who killed the Kennedys?"
                    D      
              When after all
                     A
              It was you and me 
                                 G
              Let me please introduce myself 
                     D                 A
              I'm a man of wealth and taste
                                    G 
              And I laid traps for troubadors 
                       D                            A
              Who get killed before they reached Bombay
               E                  
              Pleased to meet you 
                                 A
              Hope you guess my name,oh yeah 
                          G 
              But what's puzzling you 
                                   A
              Is the nature of my game,oh yeah, get down, baby 
             E
              Pleased to meet you 
                                   A
              Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
                            G 
              But what's confusing you 
                                       A
              Is just the nature of my game
             A G D A G D A
                                      G 
              Just as every cop is a criminal
                   D               A 
              And all the sinners Saints 
            
              As heads is tails
                         G 
              Just call me Lucifer 
                            D                A
              'Cause I'm in need of some restraint 
              So if you meet me 
                         G
              Have some courtesy 
                         D                  A
              Have some sympathy, and some taste
                                           G 
              Use all your well-learned politesse
                       D               A 
              Or I'll lay your soul to waste, um yeah 
               E                  
              Pleased to meet you 
                                 A
              Hope you guess my name,um yeah 
                          G 
              But what's puzzling you 
                                   A
              Is the nature of my game,um baby, get dow......
