[Verse I]
F             C
 When I was a kid
          G                 Am
I used to buy and sell gravity
F              C
 I knew how to fly
            G               Am
And I would teach you for a fee
F            C
 Broke every window
      G        Am
In my hotel heart
F                C               G            Am
 When I was only 5 years old but 12 years scarred
F                 C
 And I'd hear the same voice
 G           Am
Echo in my mind
F                      C
 Said, "Son you got an angel,
             G           Am
To chase the devil at night."

Yeah

[Chorus]
F             C
 When I was a kid
        G                Am
My grandfather was a preacher
F                C
 He'd talk about God
            G                   Am
Yeah he was something like a teacher
F                   C
 He said, "God only helps those
    G                 Am
Who learn to help themselves."
         F                    C
He was a million miles from a million dollars
    G                         Am
But you could never spend his wealth
[Verse II]
F         C
 I took a little faith
    G                   Am
And put it in a parking lot
F              C
 I drove to a strange town
         G               Am
Full of "have" and "have nots"
F          C                   G         Am
 And as I walked through that storybook life
F                     C                  G            Am
 I was looking for an angel to chase the devil at night

 When I was a kid
        G                Am
My grandfather was a preacher
F                C
 He'd talk about love

Yeah he was something like a teacher
F                   C
 He said, "God only helps those
    G                 Am

         F                    C
He was a million miles from a million dollars
    G                         Am
But you could never spend his wealth

But you could never spend his wealth

    G                         Am       F     C     G    Am
But you could never spend his wealth
