Six Sixty Six (L. Norman) From the album In Another Land Submitted by W.G. Hulbert (firstname.lastname@example.org) Intro: G (2 measures) Special chords: D/F#: play a D with an E in the 6th string (the 6th being the thinnest) and F# in the bass (use your index finger) G In the midst of the war he offered us peace, D/F# G He came like a lover from out of the east. G With the face of an angel and the heart of a beast, D/F# C G His intentions were six sixty six. G He walked up to the temple with gold in his hand D/F# G And he bought off the priests and propositioned the land. G The world was his harlot and laid in the sand D/F# C G While the band played six sixty six. Instrumental break (equivalent to one verse) G We served at his table and slept on the floor, D/F# G But he starved us and beat us and nailed us to the door. G Well I'm ready to die I can't take any more, D/F# C G And I'm sick of his lies and his tricks. G He told us he loved us but that was a lie, D/F# G There was blood in his pockets and death in his eyes. G Well my number is up and I'm willing to die, D/F C If the band will play six . . . D/F# C If the band will play six sixty . . . D/F# C G If the band will play six sixty six.
