Like the Devil’s Chasing Me - Dan Johnson

                E                                                                              A                                                             E

Well it’s 6 am, wishing I could sleep in, but ain’t no way it’s happening today

            E                                                                                  A                      E

There’s a whole lot of loving laying next to me here, and lord I hate to walk away

            E                                                                      A                                  E         

But the bills keep coming and the time flies by…gotta keep on pushin til the day I die

            E                                  A                                                               B           E   

Put on my game face, and I jump in the race, running like the devil is chasing me

A                                      B           E

Running like the devil is chasing me.

E                                                                                                                                                                              E

Most the time you fake it, hell sometimes you even make it, bend as far as I can go hoping I don’t break it.

                E                                                                              A                                                             E

Just a doin’ my best wishing I could rest burning up my candle don’t know how long I can take it

                E                                                                                                              A                                            

Cause the man makes the rules, I’m just playing his game. The odds are stacked against

                   E

me but I’ll win just the same.

            E                                  A                                                               B           E   

So I’ll steal another base, praying for grace, and running like the devil is chasing me,

A                                      B           E

Running like the devil is chasing me.

(Solo...A.....E......A......B)

Guess it must be satan, feel the heat on my tail, but I ain’t looking back cause I got no room to fail

Jesus won’t you help me, I can’t make it alone.

In this world I’m bound to struggle til the day I’m gone.

But when that role is called up yonder one of these days,

I’m gonna punch that clock gonna take my place

But it won’t be today, so I ain’t changing this pace, running like the devil is chasing me

Running like the devil is chasing me.
