Verse 1:
           D     C                     D     C
Was broken down,    by the side of the road, yeah
    D               C               D                 C
Was crawling in the darkness like a king snake in the woods
                      D           C
We were hiding in the tall grass
              D           C
Hiding in the tall grass

Chorus:
     D             F                 C      F  C    C  F  C
Just looking for a place to shed our skins
            C               F                    C      F  C
We're gonna summon the Holy Ghost from the battlefield
           C                F                  C   F C C F C
And in the morning this old world won't be the same

once through the lead lick

Verse 2:
Snapshot lightning, silhouette expressions,
Monumental faces in the flesh of Cypress trees
   and killing vines
Naked in the mud, girl
Let's sling a little mud, girl

(Chorus)

once through the lead lick

Bridge:
G -> A -> D -> C ->  (x2)
G -> A -> first measure of the lead lick

Verse 3:
Feeling weak in the Itta Bena hot sun
Crawling to the station we were foamin' at the mouth
Sippin' on a tall boy, sippin' on a tall boy

(Chorus)
