Producer: Emmanuel Gilligan


Verse 1:
(Dm) I don't give a lot of thought
'Bout (G) what is now in vogue
I'd (Gm) rather be a rebel,
I'd (Dm) rather be a rogue

& (Dm) I don't loose a lot of sleep
'Bout (G) whether I fit in
I (Gm) think of where I'm going
& (Dm) forget about where I've been

Refrain 1:
You've (A#) got to loose yourself to (C) gain
A (A#) Love too good to be ex(A)plained
'Cause it's a.....

Chorus 1:
Soul thing (Dm)
(G) A (Gm) soul thing
(Dm) I want the whole thing (G)
It's a (Gm) soul thing (Dm)

Verse 2:
Now, (Dm) you can climb up ladders
'Til you're (G) all hooked on the heights
(Gm) Play with snakes & adders,
Get (Dm) addicted to the bites

But (Dm) when it comes a-crashing down
(G) All around your ears,
Who's (Gm) gonna light your way across
These (Dm) darkened coming years?

Refrain 2:
I'll (A#) put myself in Jesus' (C) hands
(A#) Even when He's contra(A)band
'Cause it's a.....

Chorus 2:
Soul thing (Dm)
(G) A (Gm) soul thing (Dm)
Now, don't you want the whole thing (G)
(I know I do)
Yeah, it's a (Gm) soul thing (Dm)


I'm not (F) talking 'bout a dead thing
It's (C) more than just a head thing
(C#) Still, it is the smart thing,
So (G#) listen to your heart strings (A#-Dm)

Verse 3:
(Dm) Now, I can hear the pompous
& the (G) pious disagree,
"It's (Gm) about keeping all of our tra(Dm)ditions
To the T"

(Dm) Holy this & holy that,
So (G) holier than thou
If that (Gm) liar is a holy man,
That (Dm) bull's a holy cow

Refrain 3:
It's (A#) enough to raise a little (C) wrath
But don't throw the (A#) baby out with the (C) bath
No, its a..........

Chorus 3:
Soul thing (Dm)
(G) A (Gm) soul thing
(Dm) I want the whole thing (G)
It's a (Gm) soul thing (Dm)
Soul thing!
