    {Intro}
    DmDmDmDmGmGmDmDmAmGmDmDm
     
    {Verse}
    Dm
    I saw some people starving 
    Dm
    There was murder, there was rape 
    Dm
    Their villages were burning 
    Dm
    They were trying to escape 
    Gm
    I couldn't meet their glances 
    Gm
    I was staring at my shoes 
    Dm
    It was acid, it was tragic 
    Dm
    It was almost like the blues 
    AmGmDmDm
    {Woo-oo-ooo} It was almost like the blues 
    {Verse}
    Dm
    I have to die a little 
    Dm
    Between each murderous thought 
    Dm
    And when I'm finished thinking 
    Dm
    I have to die a lot 
    Gm
    There's torture and there's killing 
    Gm
    And there's all my bad reviews 
    Dm
    The war, the children missing 
    Dm
    Lord, it's almost like the blues 
    AmGmDmDm
    {Woo-ooo} It's almost like the blues 
    {Verse}
    Dm
    So I let my heart get frozen 
    Dm
    To keep away the rot 
    Dm
    My father says I'm chosen 
    Dm
    My mother says I'm not 
    Gm
    I listened to their story 
    Gm
    Of the Gypsies and the Jews 
    Dm
    It was good, it wasn't boring 
    Dm
    It was almost like the blues 
    AmGmDmDm
    { Woo-oo-oo-ooo} It was almost like the blues 
    {Verse}
    Dm
    There is no G-d in Heaven 
    Dm
    And there is no Hell below 
    Dm
    So says the great professor 
    Dm
    Of all there is to know 
    Gm
    But I've had the invitation 
    Gm
    That a sinner can't refuse 
    Dm
    And it's almost like salvation 
    Dm
    It's almost like the blues 
    AmGmDmDm
    {Wooo-oo-oo-ooo} It's almost like the blues 
    AmGmDmDm
    {Wooo-oo-oo-ooo} Almost like the blues 
    AmGmDmDmDmDm
    { Woo-oo-oo-ooo, Almost like the blues}
