Who Will Save Your Soul | Jewel


<< Go Back

This is a great song from Jewel. We play this song in the key of “Am”, and the guitar chart and lyric sheet we use for open mic night and live performances are available below for your reference. If you prefer to use different guitar tabs or chord charts, we can accomodate any variations.


Am                                C
People livin' their lives for you on TV.
                 G                   D
They say they're better than you, and you agree.
Am                              C
 He says, "Hold my calls," from behind those cold brick walls, says
      G                           D
   "Come here boy, there ain't nothin' for free."
Am                        C                                  G
 Another doctor's bill, a lawyer's bill, another cute, cheap thrill.
                             D
You know you love him if you put him in your will.

    Am          C             G             D
But    who will save your souls when it comes to the flowers, now?
Am C                    G                D
Who will save your souls after those lies that you told, boy?
Am             C        G                  D
  And who will save your souls if you won't save your own?
Am                          C                    G  D
La, da, di, da, di, da, di, da, da, da, yeah, da.

Am                                C
  We try to hustle them, try to bustle them, try to cuss them.
    G                                 D
The cops want someone to bust down on Orleans Avenue.
Am                     C                             G
  Another day, another dollar, another war, another tower went up where the
    D
homeless had their homes.
Am                      C                           G
  So we pray to as many different gods as there are flowers.
               D
But we call religion our friend.
Am                         C                             G
  We're so worried about a-saving our souls, afraid that God will take his
                 D
toll, that we forget to begin.

    Am          C             G             D
But    who will save your souls when it comes to the flowers, now?
Am C                    G                D
Who will save your souls after those lies that you told, boy?
Am             C        G                  D
  And who will save your souls if you won't save your own?
Am                          C                    G  D
La, da, di, da, di, da, di, da, da, da, yeah, da.

*4 bar drum & bass interlude, in the last two beats of the 4th bar play:

Am                              C
  Some are walking, some are talking, some are stalking their kill.
G                            D
 Got social security, but it doesn't pay your bills.
            Am                             C
There are addictions to feed, and there are mouths to pay.
          G                                 D
So you bargain with the devil, but you're O.K. for today, say
   Am                             C
  that you love me; take their money and run.
               G                             D                  Am
Say, it's been swell, sweet-heart, but it was just one of those things.
                               C
Those flings, those strings you got to cut.
          G                           D         Am
So get out on the streets, girls, and bust your butts.

         C     G     D  Am C  G       D
Who will save, save your    soul when it comes to the flowers?
Am   C                    G           D
  Who will save your souls, those lies that you told, boy?
Am             C     G                   D
  And who will save, save your souls when you won't save your own?

La da da, la da da, scatting through outro
