The Devil And Me

	  		CAPO I 
 
 
INTRO:  D  G  D  G 
 
D                     A            D                            A 
I'm not the kind that gets around, just another face in this little town 
   G                                  A 
An everyday man trying to live life right 
D                       A           D                   A 
You wouldn't know it to look at me, I live in silent misery 
G                   A 
Or I lead a double life 
G                             A             D 
I've battled with the bottle all alone for years 
G                               A 
I've lied a thousand lies, and cried a million tears 
 
 
CHORUS 1: 
G                               A              D 
I'm too tired to fight it, and too ashamed to pray 
   A                                     D 
I know the Lord must be bored with the promises I've made 
      G                               D 
So I sit here with my secret thinking no one else can see 
              G                    A         D 
And I'll just keep it between the devil and me 
 
 
Monday morning here I am hiding bottles in a garbage can 
I take out the trash and pray no one sees 
I keep my family in the dark 'cause Lord knows it'd break their hearts 
To see the rock be so weak 
I've had a good old Baptist raising, so I've got no good excuse 
I wish that I was stronger but here's the honest truth 
 
CHORUS 1 
 
 
BRIDGE: 
     G                      A                D 
I'm hoping for a miracle, I know that I can change 
G                        A 
No I'm not givin' up, I know there'll come a day, when 
 
 
CHORUS 2: 
 
I'm not too tired to fight it, or too ashamed to pray 
And I know the Lord won't be bored with the promises I've made 
I won't live here with my secret where no one else can see 
No I won't keep it between the devil and me 
No I won't keep it between the devil and me
