33 R.P.M. Soul

(C) Consecrate your soul or there’s gonna be hell to pay
You’ve (F) got them where they live (G)
Come the Judgement Day (C7)

(C7) Father, forgive our sins
Mother, forgive us too
(F) Forgive but don’t forget (G)
They never meant to hurt you (C7)

She’s doing (C7) the widow walk since her ship went down
(F)I’ve seen her with a pretty (G) boy
On the country side of town (C7)

Her (C7) captain is lost at sea
Her ship is forgotten too
(F) She’d admit she’d been singing (G)
The hellfire brimstone blues (C7)

Should (C7) never have tried to rock
Should never have tried to roll
But (F) damn I don’t regret (G)
The 33 RPM (C7) Soul
