                 A
             I.  put on a hard hat,
                   C         G
                 inhale some lead
                           D
                 where the sky is green
                         C         G/B     A
                 and the money you earn is red.
                 A
                 run to the bank;
                      C               G
                 it's on the main artery.
                           D
                 give transfusions to
                     C      G/B  A
                 the local economy with...

                       A            G            D
        CHORUS:  blood money, blood money, blood money.
                     C         B      A
                 the vampire's on his way for
                      A            G            D
                 blood money, blood money, blood money.
                       C       B   A
                 he'll be here any day.


                 /// REPEAT INTRO RIFF ///


                 A
            II.  have a cigar,
                   C                  G
                 a trash fire in your face,
                           D
                 shrinking every vein
                 C   G/B  A
                 it  can  trace.
                 A
                 paying the toll,
                   C                G
                 Tobacco Road ain't free.
                           D
                 Senator Helms
                         C          G/B   A
                 wants a government subsidy for...


                 /// REPEAT CHORUS ///


                 /// REPEAT INTRO RIFF ///

                 A
           III.  I'm assembling guns
                     C              G
                 and earning my own pay.
                          D
                 I loaded sixteen tons
                      C          G/B    A
                 on a truck that drove away,
                 A
                 bound for barefoot
                 C             G
                 bodies in the mud.
                       D
                 blood money's easy
                           C        G/B    A
                 when it's somebody else's blood.

                 /// REPEAT INTRO RIFF ///
