Some days I think           it's all a dream
Cm                   F                      D/F#
The things I've done, the places that I've been
Gm                 Gm/F  Eb
This life of mine       seems surreal at times
   Cm                     D/F#                Gm
Wasted days and nights in someone else's mind
Gm Cm Cm7/Bb
Could it be I'm not for real
I slap my face to check out how I feel
It's hostages to prove it's true
Who lives behind a mask was never proved.
F               Bb         F                Bb          
Come on Robert Johnson, though we're worlds apart

You sold your soul at the crossroads
      Cm                   Gm
Kept a little of mine on hand
  Eb       G7 5th/E   Dm/F   F#m 5th
I'm wadin' out this            muddy water
     Gm      Dm/A  Gm/Bb Gm/A Gm
Been stranded in the wa---------steland
Rattlin' chains all around my bed
Ghosts can laugh but they're already dead
I'm not dyin' and I'm far from gone
The bluesman spent his candle, but his pain lives on
Outro: A lib Gm
