The Woodbox Gang
Band: Woodbox Gang (www.woodboxgang.com) Album: Wormwood A great band from southern Illinois playing Trashcan Americana Verse 1 G Am D G Got a pretty smile, I can smile too. Smile so big my head's in two. Am D G Am You wanna be friends, you can be mine. Keep you happy in the sunshine. D G Am D Take my hand, it's warm you can tell. Feel my heart, it's hotter than hell G Am D G I've been there and I can take you too, I can make all your bad dreams come true. (Slide Licks in G) D Em C (5 times) end on D VERSE 2 I like small towns and the people there. Easier money than welfare. What does it take to get a handout? A sucker to trust you without a doubt. But they need me and I need them, we're all red-blooded working men. Good or bad, where do I stand? Between the devil and a dollar is a confidence man. CHORUS D Em C D It's a confidence game, I'm a confidence man. Sure as I win, sure as I stand. Em C D Em Tell you what I am, honest I ain't. Stab you in the back, smiling like a saint. C D Em C Confidence man in a confidence game, I'll leave you with nothing but your shame. D Em C D Your mama warned about a confidence game, she's been taken in just the same by a D Em C D confidence man. VERSE 3 When the market dies like it always does everybody's pockets are lighter than they was. Evrybody's mad everybody's pissed They can't believe that they were taken by a scam like this Still they can't even understand, how they got swindled by an ordinary man They pay the price, that's why I came, to make em all losers in a confidence game. CHORUS SLIDE LICKS IN G D Em C (5 Times) end on D The guitar solo is done on a dobro/resonator guitar, tuned to open G.
