Tuning: Standard (Capo 2) 

     G    D  Cadd9 Em7  Em    C   D/F  Dsus

e|---3----2----3----3----0----0----3----0--------------------------------------|
B|---3----3----3----3----0----1----3----3--------------------------------------|
G|---0----2----0----0----0----0----2----2--------------------------------------|
D|---0----0----2----2----2----2----0----0--------------------------------------|
A|---2----0----3----2----2----3----0----0--------------------------------------|
E|---3----0----0----0----0----0----2----0--------------------------------------|


*Note: when he plays the Em7 and the Cadd9, you can hear a slight hammer on thing
going on in the background.. All that is.. is:

e|--3-------3--3-------3-----------------------------------------------|
B|--3-------3--3-------3-----------------------------------------------|
G|--0-------0--0-------0-----------------------------------------------|
D|--2-0h2p0-0--2-0h2p0-0-----------------------------------------------|
A|--2-------2--3-------3-----------------------------------------------|
E|--0-------0--0-------0-----------------------------------------------|

So it's strum chord once, then hammer 0h2 and then pull off and strum the chord a
few times with an open D string. Listen carefully and you'll hear what i'm on
about!!! Promise!


Verse:


G         Dsus   D                     Em7     Cadd9        
There's a funeral procession on the highway,
G       Dsus  D        Em7  Cadd9
Traffic screeches to a halt.
G              Dsus D          Em7     Cadd9
There's people searching for a better way,
              G   Dsus D Em7  Cadd9
To live their lives.
G      Dsus D                    Em7       Cadd9        
Johnny lived a good life, you'll hear them say
G           Dsus D           Em7    Cadd9
As tears of sadness soak the ground.
G          Dsus D             Em7       Cadd9
The reaper crept in, took his breath away,
                     G   Dsus D Em7 Cadd9
In the middle of the night.

[Chorus:]
Em                               C
We celebrate the lives of the dead,
                       G                           D/F
It's like a man's best party, only happens when he dies.
Em                                C
We gather 'round to pay our respects,
            G                                  D/F
While their souls are still searching for the light,
                           (BACK TO VERSE CHORDS)
Searching for the light.

Verse:

G               Dsus D           Em7    Cadd9
So please don't come to me on my dying day,
G          Dsus D Em7 Cadd9
Just let me go in peace.
G            Dsus D        Em7       Cadd9
With all the things that I forgot to say,
                       G  Dsus D Em7 Cadd9
Still racing through my mind.
G           Dsus D             Em7      Cadd9
And don't you bury me six feet under ground,
G         Dsus D      Em7  Cadd9
Just burn my body in a box.
G          Dsus D Em7          Cadd9
And let my ashes blow with the wind,
             G  Dsus D Em7  Cadd9
Out into the night.... sky.


Chorus:

Em                               C
We celebrate the lives of the dead,
                       G                           D/F
It's like a man's best party, only happens when he dies.
Em                                C
We gather 'round to pay our respects,
            G                                  D/F
While their souls are still searching for the light,
                           (BACK TO VERSE CHORDS)
Searching for the light.


The End, simple.
