This song is from the upcoming release, "Plans" which is coming August 30th. I have a
copy already and thought I would do those looking for the chords when it's released a
service. It's a great, sparse little folk song that emphasizes the bottom half of the
chords and strums mostly on the upbeats. The way this is done is by picking the bottom
two notes of the chord on the downbeats of the verses. 

For example, with the F chord, it's played something like this, but the upper half of
the chord is strummed more than once in the rise and fall of the strumming hand: 

e   1      1
B   1      1
G   2      2
D   3      3 
A   3      3
E

The chorus is pretty much exactly like the introduction. 

Standard Tuning

Intro:
Dm F Bb F C
Dm F C (Barchord)
Dm F A Dm C Bb Bbm (Into F with F-C note progression beginning)

Verse One:
F (F-C Root note going)
Love of mine,
                 Dm (D-A Root note going)
Someday you will die
                      Bb (strumming)
But I will be close behind
           F                  C
I will follow, you into the dark

F (F-C Root note going)
No blinding light
                        Dm (D-A Root note going)
Or tunnels to gates of white
                           Bb
Just our hands clasped so tight
         F                   C
Waiting for, the hint of a spark 

Chorus: 
   Dm                 F               Bb           F C
If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied
Dm               F                 C (bar chord)
Illuminate the "no's", on their vacancy signs
Dm                        F              A      Dm C
If there's no one beside you, when your soul embarks
Bb                 Bbm            F (Begin F-C root again)
Then I will follow you into the dark

Verse Two:
F (F-C root note going)
Catholic school
                      Dm (D-A root note)
As vicious as roman rule
            Bb
I got my knuckles bruised 
      F        C
By a lady in black

       F (F-C root note)              Dm                          Bb
And I held my tongue as she told me, "son, fear is the heart of love." 
       F         C
So I never went back

Chorus Two (Same): 
   Dm                F                Bb          F C
If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied
Dm                F                C (bar chord)
Illuminate the "no's", on their vacancy signs
Dm                        F              A      Dm C
If there's no one beside you, when your soul embarks
Bb                 Bbm            F (Begin F-C root again)
Then I will follow you into the dark

Verse Three: 
F                           Dm
You and me, have seen everything to see
                  Bb
From Bangkok to Calgary  
          F             C (barchord)
And the soles of your shoes
    F                                    Dm
Are all worn down, the time for sleep is now
                     Bb
But it's nothing to cry about
               F               C    Dm                  Bbm 
Because we'll hold each other soon, in the blackest of rooms 

Continue strumming the Bb minor an extra measure before the last chorus.

Chorus Three 
Dm                   F                Bb            F C
If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied
Dm               F                 C (bar chord)
Illuminate the "no's", on their vacancy signs
Dm                        F              A      Dm C
If there's no one beside you, when your soul embarks
Bb                 Bbm            F    run down to Dm on D string
Then I will follow you into the dark

Repeat last line, ending on F.
