The Devil Pays In Gold

	  		
VERSE
Am                                     D    
Gus checked his pocket-watch it was a quarter past nine 
Am                                            G            E 
He caught a train to Baton Rouge and bought a copy of the times. 
Am                               D 
Pulled out a faded picture of a woman with coal black hair 
         F                     E                  Am 
She had gone out east and he prayed he?d find her there. 

Am                            D 
She met a gambler who said he hailed from New Orleans 
Am                              G                E 
Gus knew he fancied her but she wanted him too it seemed  
Am                                              D 
He followed the trail of broken stories till he heard that she left town, 
        F                      E              Am 
She was packed and gone by the time he turned around 

FILL: 
C      G     Am        C     G      E 

Am                                    D 
He talked to the man a while that had tore the ticket stubs 
Am                                           G                E 
If he finds that son of a b***h he was gonna spill that Cajun blood 
Am                                      D 
There would not be a mojo man who would save him from that day 
       F                    E                  Am 
He had crossed the line and there?d be hell to pay 

Am                                     D 
Well the 10 o?clock from San Antone it departed right on time 
Am                           G               E 
He lit up a cigarette as the tracks began to whine 
Am                                    D 
The Texas heat had felt like hell without his woman there 
    F              E                   Am 
The Spanish maiden with the coal black hair 

FILL:  C  G  Am    C  G  E  

tabchorus
Am F C G You?re gonna live and die by the blade and you?ll reap what you sow Am F C G Cause life the things that happens on our way to growing old Am F C G If the truth was known to woman she could steal her lover?s soul Am E Am She knows that the devil pays in gold.

FILL: C G Am C G E Am D They pulled into the station and he packed his cap and ball Am G E He went to check the hotels if he needed to check them all Am D He knew all he needed to do was to find a game of card F E Am And he could drop the ace of spades on the queen of hearts Am D He found the downstairs card room where the high rollers stayed Am G E One chair stood empty from the last table left to play Am D He pulled a stool up to the bar but he could not see a thing F E Am Till a loud mouth Yankee bet his lady?s ring FILL C G Am C G E Am D Pulled a pistol on the desk clerk cause he would not take a bribe Am G E and then he shouted Give me their number and you might walk out alive Am D The next thing from the clerk?s lips was the number forty-four F E Am And he pointed upstairs and he ran on out the door Am D He found the room and was ready to go inside Am G E He put a boot to the door and it flung open wide Am D The gambler he reached for his gun but he would not get a shot F E Am Gus had his aim and he let that hammer drop FILL C G Am C G E

C G Am C G Am C G Am Am E Am E strum once Am D The gambler lay before him he was sprawled across that chair Am G E But where was his maiden with the coal black hair Am D He didn?t know she stood behind him, she had gone for wine and bread F E Am He hit the floor when her bullet struck his head. FILL C G Am C G E
