This is the way I play it on acousitic guitar. It is somewhat simplified. INTRO rhythm (chords): INTRO lead: chord, hammer on/off with the third finger, i.e.: e-|-2-2-2-2---2-2-2----| B-|-3-3-2-3---3-2-3----| etc.. and end with G-|-2-2-2-2---2-2-2----| D-|-0-0-0-0---0-0-0----| A-|--------------------| E-|--------------------| VERSE lead: e-|-------------------| B-|--1-1-0-1---1-0-1--| G-|--2-2-0-2---2-0-2--| etc.. D-|--2-2-0-2---2-0-2--| A-|--0-0-0-0---0-0-0--| E-|-------------------| VERSE rhythm: CHORUS lead: e-|-1-0-1-------------------------------| B-|-1-0-1---1-0-1---1-1-1---------------| G-|-2-0-2---2-0-2---0-0-0---0-0-0-------| D-|-3-3-3---2-0-2---2-0-2---0-0-0-------| A-|-3-3-3---0-0-0---3-3-3---2-0-2-------| E-|-------------------------3-3-3-------| CHORUS rhythm: BRIDGE: LYRICS: let's begin, I am ready let's begin sell my soul to him shed my skin, I just wanna shed my skin I don't wanna sell my soul to him mechanize, city bursts and farmers die they cry, sell my soul to him sleep face down in a goods train heading south in the rain sell my soul to him in this world I often think you'd understand me in these words I often think you'd recognize me 'cause I just wanna swim with the fish in the sea and I want faith to heal so that I can be clean {solo} {insert Peter's rant here} I just wanna celebrate I'm not going to sell my soul to him when you look right in sell my soul to him you're gonna come on done sell my soul to him sell my soul to him
