D7     G7              A7
Woe is me well I been dyin'
 D7              G7            A7
Got to get that monkey off my back

 D                  G                 A
The fortune teller looked into my eyeballs
 D                   G              A
The wrinkles on her face about to crack
She said,  You best believe it
G                   A
You ain't goin' nowhere
 D                   F               E
Unless you get that monkey off your back

Well, I made believe the devil made me do it
I was the evil leader of the pack
You best believe I had it all and then I blew it
Feeling that fucking monkey on my back

        B                                   A
If you put it in a spoon man I would boot it
      B                                      A
Some king whose mental house was just a shack
Where do you draw the line when
all your friends are dyin'
     B                               A
You got to get that monkey off your back
Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uhhhhhh!

Your crystal ball is where you chase the dragon
She said, now, bring me home his head inside a sack
But now you find your crystal balls are dragging
Got to get that monkey off your back
