Devil Town
Daniel Johnston
"1990" (1993), Discovered Covered (2004)

I was living in a Devil Town

Oh, Lord, it really brings me down
About the Devil Town


And all my friend were vampires
Didn't know they were vampires
Turns out I was a vampire myself
In the Devil Town

 

I was living in a Devil Town

Didn't know it was a Devil Town

Oh Lord it really brings me down

VERSION 3

Devil Town

Bright Eyes version
Thanks to Zack

 

He plays all of these as bar chords (not necessary, but gives the nice scraping sound when sliding between the F and Bb chords). ďXĒ indicates a muted (not sounding) string.

 

F        1-3-3-2-1-1

Bb      6-8-8-7-6-6

Dm     X-5-7-7-6-5

G        3-5-5-4-3-3

C        X-3-5-5-5-3

  

  F                    Bb

|  1   2   3   4  |  1   2   3   4  |  repeat throughout verse

 

I was living in a devil town

I didnít know it was a devil town

Oh Lord it really brings me down

About the devil town

 

All my friends were vampires

Didnít know they were vampires

Turns out I was a vampire myself

In the devil town

 

Instrumental section

  Dm                 F                    Dm                F

|  1   2   3   4  |  1   2   3   4  |  1   2   3   4  |  1   2   3   4  |

 

  Bb                   F                   G                  C

|  1   2   3   4  |  1   2   3   4  |  1   2   3   4  |  1   2   3   4  |

 

The next verse uses the same chords as the instrumental section

 

All my friends were vampires

Didnít know they were vampires

Turns out I was a vampire myself

In the devil town

 

This verse uses the same F Ė Bb progression as the first verse

 

I was living in a devil town

I didnít know it was a devil town

Oh Lord it really brings me down

about the devil town
