Here is one Iris Dement song I have transposed for the BASS
guitar.I reckon that it should be OK for the 6 stringers.

Let The Mystery Be   (Iris DeMent) From the Infamous Angels CD.

A BASS RUN is denoted inside a [  ]

Everybody is wonderin' what and where they all come from.
  FF           Bb Bb                            CC
Everybodys a worryin' 'bout where they're gonna go
When the whole things done.
FF                     Bb Bb
But no one knows for certain
        FF               Bb Bb
And so it's all the same to me.

I think I'll just let the mystery be.

Some say once gone you're gone forever
CC                              FC
And some say you're gonna come back.
FF                        Bb Bb
Some say you rest in the arms of the savior
CC                     FC
If in sinful ways you lack.
FF                           Bb Bb
Some say that they're comin' back in a garden
CC                                FC
Bunch of carrots and little sweet peas.
FF                             CC
I think I'll just let the mystery be.


FF                           Bb Bb
Some say they're goin' to a place called glory
CC                            FC
and I aint' sayin' it aint' a fact.
FF                             Bb Bb
But I've heard that I'm on the road to purgatory 
CC                             FC
And I don't like the sound of that.

I believe in love and I live my life accordingly

But I choose to let the mystery be.
