G
I was walkin' down the street when out the
B♭
corner of my eye I saw a
CB♭F
pretty little thing approaching me
G
She said, "I never seen a man who
B♭
looked so all alone. Oh, could you
CB♭F
use a little company?
2
G
And if you pay the right price, your
B♭
evening will be nice and you can
CB♭F
go and send me on my way."
G
I said, "You're such a sweet young thing. Why you
B♭
do this to yourself?"
CB♭F
She looked at me and this is what she said:

GB♭C
Oh, there ain't no rest for the wicked
GAB♭
Money don't grow on trees
GAB♭C
I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
GB♭C
And ain't nothing in this world for free
4
GB♭F
Oh no, I can't slow down, I can't hold back
GB♭F
Though you know I wish I could
GB♭F
Oh, no, there ain't no rest for the wicked
GAB♭C
Until we close our eyes for good
5
G
Not even fifteen minutes later I'm still
B♭
walkin' down the street when I saw the
CB♭F
shadow of a man creep out of sight
G
And then he swept up from behind, he put a
B♭
gun up to my head, he made it
CB♭F
clear he wasn't lookin' for a fight
6
G
He said, "Give me all you got. I want your
B♭
money not your life, but if you
CB♭F
try to make a move I won't think twice."
G
I told him, "You can have my cash, but first you
B♭
know I gotta ask: What made you
CG
wanna live this kind of life?". He said:

GB♭CF
There ain't no rest for the wicked
GB♭CF
Money don't grow on trees. I got
GB♭CF
bills to pay, I got mouths to feed, and ain't
GB♭CF
nothing in this world for free
8
GB♭CF
Oh no, I can't slow down, I can't hold back though
GB♭CF
you know I wish I could. Oh, no, there
GB♭CF
ain't no rest for the wicked until we
GB♭CF
close our eyes for good yeah

G
Well, now a couple hours passed and I was
B♭
sitting in my house. The day was
CB♭F
winding down and coming to an end
G
So I turned to the TV and flipped it
B♭
over to the news and what I
CB♭F
saw I almost couldn't comprehend
11
G
I saw a preacher man in cuffs. He'd taken
B♭
money from the church. He'd stuffed his
CB♭F
bank account with righteous dollar bills
G
But even still I can't say much because I
B♭
know we're all the same, oh, yes we
CG
all seek out to satisfy those thrills
12
GB♭CF
You know there ain't no rest for the wicked
GB♭CF
Money don't grow on trees. We got
GB♭CF
bills to pay, we got mouths to feed, and ain't
GB♭CF
nothing in this world for free
13
GB♭CF
Oh no, we can't slow down, we can't hold back though
GB♭CF
you know we wish we could. Oh, no, there
GB♭CF
ain't no rest for the wicked until we
G
close our eyes for good
