Gods Away On Business

Year: 2002 - Album: Blood Money

	  		
Bbm  
I'd sell your heart to the junkman, baby, for a buck, for a buck.  
          Ebm  
If you're looking for someone to pull you out of that ditch  

You're out of luck, you're out of luck.  
    F       Bbm          F       Bbm  
The ship is sinking, the ship is sinking,  
    F       Bbm  
The ship is sinking.  
        Bbm                       F#  
There's leak, there's leak in the boiler room.  
    Bbm                 F#7  
The poor, the lame, the blind, 
Bbm                      F#  
Who are the ones that we kept in charge,   
Bbm                   F#7  
Killers, thieves, and lawyers?  
Bbm  
God's away, God's away, God's away on business, business.  
                                                         F#7  
God's away, God's away, God's away on business, business 
Bm  
Digging up the dead with a shovel and a pick.  

It's a job, it's a job,  
Em  
Bloody moon rising with a plague and a flood.  

Jain the mob, jain the mob.  
F#       Bm    F#       Bm    F#       Bm  
It's all over, it's all over, it's all over.  

          Bm                          G  
There's a leak, there's a leak in the boiler room.  
    Bm                  G7  
The poor, the lame, the blind,  
Bm                       G  
Who are the ones that we kept in charge,  
Bm                    G7  
Killers, thieves, and lawyers?  

Bm  
God's away, God's away, God's away on business, business.  

God's away, God's away on business, business.  

Instrumental: Bm G Bm G7 Bm G Bm G7 Bm  

   Bm                        G  
God damn there's always such a big temptation  
      Bm          G7  
To be good, To be good.  
        Bm                       G  
There's always free cheddar in a mousetrap, baby,  
       Bm           G7  
It's a deal, it's a deal. 
  
Bm  
God's away, God's away, God's away on business, business.  

God's away, God's away, God's away on business, business.  

  Bm                    G  
I narrow my eyes like a coin slot, baby.   
        Bm            G7  
Let her ring, let her ring. 
  
Bm  
God's away, God's away, God's away on business.  

God's away, God's away, God's away on business
