Sympathy For The Devil

Sympathy For The Devil Guitar Chords & Lyrics
 
E                       D
Please allow me to introduce myself
      A                 E
I'm a man of wealth and taste
E                      D
I've been around for a long, long year
A                           E
Stole many a man's soul and faith
 
E                     D
And I was 'round when Jesus Christ
        A                   E
Had his moment of doubt and pain
                    D
Made damn sure that Pilate
           A                    E
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
 
B
Pleased to meet you
                  E
Hope you guess my name
           B
But what's puzzling you
       A            E
Is the nature of my game
 
E                  D
I stuck around St. Petersburg
       A                       E
When I saw it was a time for a change
                        D
Killed the Czar and his ministers
    A                 E
Anastasia screamed in vain
 
  E
I rode a tank
       D
Held a general's rank
         A
When the Blitzkrieg raged
        E
And the bodies stank
 
B
Pleased to meet you
                  E
Hope you guess my name
           B
But what's puzzling you
       A            E
Is the nature of my game
  E
I watched with glee
           D
While your kings and queens
           A
Fought for ten decades
        E
For the Gods they made
 
  E
I shouted out
                D
"Who killed the Kennedys?"
     A
When after all
       E
It was you and me
 
E                  D
Let me please introduce myself
      A                 E
I'm a man of wealth and taste
                     D
And I laid traps for troubadours
        A                             E
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
 
B
Pleased to meet you
                  E
Hope you guess my name
           B
But what's puzzling you
       A            E
Is the nature of my game
oh yeah, get down, baby
 
solo
 
B
Pleased to meet you
                  E
Hope you guess my name
           B
But what's puzzling you
       A            E
Is the nature of my game
 
        E              D
Just as every cop is a criminal
    A               E
And all the sinners saints
 
As heads is tails
             D
Just call me Lucifer
              A              E
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint
 
E
So if you meet me
          D
Have some courtesy
          A                  E
Have some sympathy, and some taste
                             D
Use all your well-learned politesse
        A                E
Or I'll lay your soul to waste, um yeah
 
B
Pleased to meet you
                  E
Hope you guess my name
           B
But what's puzzling you
       A            E
Is the nature of my game
um baby, get down
 
Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!

Tell me honey, baby guess my name
Tell me baby, what's my name

[Verse]
 
 C                        G
 Saw you stretched out in Room Ten O Nine
        Am                       G
 With a smile on your face and a tear right in your eye
 F                     C          G    F               C   G
 Couldn't see to get a line on you, my sweet honey love
 
 Berber jew'lry jangling down the street
 Make you shut your eyes at ev'ry woman that you meet
 Could not seem to get a high on you, my sweet honey love

  Make every song you sing your favorite tune
  May the good Lord shine a light on you
  Warm like the evening sun
 
 
[Verse]
 
 Well, you're in the alley, baby, with your clothes all torn
 And your late night friends leave you in the cold gray dawn
 Just seemed too many flies on you, I can't brush them off
 Angels beating all their wings in time
 With smiles on their faces and a gleam right in their eyes
 Thought I heard on sigh for you
 Come on up, come on up, now, come on up now
 
 
[Chorus]
 
  C                         G
  May the good Lord shine a light on you
  Am         F            C              G
  Make every song you sing your favorite tune
  May the good Lord shine a light on you

[Verse 1]
Em                       B
  I see a red door and I want it painted black.
Em                     B
  No colours anymore I want them to turn black.
Em  D       G          D          Em
  I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes.
Em  D       G       D       A               B
  I have to turn my head until my darkness goes.
 
[Verse 2]
Em                         B
  I see a line of cars and they're all painted black.
Em                              B
  With flowers and my love both never to come back.
Em  D          G          D         Em
  I see people turn their heads and quickly look away.
Em       D       G    D       A             B
  Like a newborn baby it just happens every day.
 
[Verse 3]

  I look inside myself and see my heart is black.
Em                          B
  I see my red door, I must have it painted black
Em      D         G     D       Em
  Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts.
Em         D    G      D       A                   B
  It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black.
 
[Verse 4]
Em                             B
  No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue.
Em                              B
  I could not forsee this thing happening to you.
Em   D      G      D      Em
  If I look hard enough into the setting sun
Em   D         G          D     A                B
  My love will laugh with me before the morning comes.

Em                       B
  I see a red door and I want it painted black.
