Black Betty The Moon Chords

   
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Black Betty & The Moon - The Horrible Crowes - Elsie
Full Step Down (DGCFAd)
Arranged by Jack Cookson (Torn Asunder)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Brilliant tune from a brilliant long awaited new album - there's a tricky 
strumming pattern to this tune but you should get it with practice.
Sorry about the tab title - I got it wrong and now UG won't let me change it.

Verse 1:
Em7            Cadd9          Em7               Cadd9
My love, my love, you're the sting of the scorpion
    Em7             Cadd9             G         F#/D
Consider, now, the angels, a little lower than you
          Em7             Cadd9           Em7             Cadd9
And they twist and they turn, and they hold their breath 'til it's blue
         Em7          Cadd9        G               F#/D
And they can't turn away like I can't, when you're lookin' like you do


Pre-chorus:
     G
Well looky Black Betty, what they tying to you
              Em7
You did the very thing, baby, that I asked you not to do
            G
And now you got yourself caught in the silk spider web
             Em7                               F#/D
I hope the money fills the holes cause see the roof is caving in

Verse 2:
Em7           Cadd9           Em7           Cadd9
My heart, my heart, you're the moon and her shining light
Em7              Cadd9                G          F#/D
Darkness in void of form, like you were keeping me alive
               Em7                Cadd9          Em7         Cadd9
And I've been dreaming of poisonings from the venom of my enemies
Em7                   Cadd9      G         F#/D            G
Clever as the viper dear, but gentle as a stampede of stones


Pre-chorus:
 G
Looky Black Betty, what they tying to you
              Em7                      D
You did the very thing, baby, that I asked you not to do
            G
And now you got yourself caught in the silk spider web
             Em7                                F#/D
I hope the money fills the holes cause see the roof is caving in


Chorus:
Em7                  G                             Bm
And they want you to doubt every trust that you've known
                         Cadd9                 Em7
And they wanna find the holes in the armor exposed
                  G
And they come on whispering,
                        Bm
If you just do this for me...
                       Cadd9         D
And turn and show their teeth just before they're sinking in
Em7               D                      Cadd9
And better than described and deeper the descent
                   G                   F#/D
I never thought we'd have to learn to doubt our friends
Em7                D                           Cadd9
And better than described, so much deeper the descent
                  G                     F#/D
I never thought we'd have to learn to doubt our friends


Outro:
 G
Looky Black Betty, what they tying to you
              Em7                      D
You did the very thing, baby, that I asked you not to do
            G
And now you got yourself caught in the silk spider web
             Em7                               F#/D
I hope the money fills the holes cause see the roof is caving in

 G
Looky Black Betty, what they tying to you
              Em7                     D
You did the very thing, baby, that I asked you not to do
            G
And now you got yourself caught in the silk spider web
             Em7                         F#/D             G
I hope the money fills the holes in the place I used to stand
