How To Play

VERSE 1
              G
Well he could almost taste the money
           C                   G
But he was sitting in a den of thieves
D               G     C
Looking for the great awakening
C                G      D
Trying to find a way to leave
    G              Am     G
But that's when he got religion
        C
And the light went on inside
        G        C        G
He said somebody up there likes me
         C                    G
Now he's working for the holy guide
       G
He got drunk but he don't remember
               C                     G
That he'd been drinking in a bar downtown
        D                  G        C
When he thought he heard a choir of angels
               G    D
Singing in the Tiki Lounge
    G              Am     G
And that's when he got religion
        C
From no salesman on TV
       G          C               G
Just a tap on the shoulder in the parking lot
         C                     G
He still drinks but he does believe
 
 
CHORUS 1
   C
Religion
        G      F        E
Oh, you do the best you can
C               G
We all make the same mistakes
            D                G
We're gonna wind up with the man

VERSE 2
              G
Well, she was silent as he paid her
        C                          G
But the thanks she got was next to none
           D          G          C
And as her car pulled out of the motel
             G               D
She felt the presence of someone
 
    G               Am     G
And that's when she got religion
       C
In the front of a compact Ford
       G      C            G
Just a gentle voice on the stereo (stereo)
            C                          G
Now she's a working girl who loves the lord
 
 
CHORUS 2

We're gonna wind up with the man
 
C
Religion
        G      F        E

            D                G
We're gonna wind up with the man
