!NOTICE!
So I'm going to a do a 2 in one shot. I Am You and Carry Me Down!
I'll do Fading Away too and all the rest here soon.

Oh and there is a lot of notes to this song just because of so many 
of the additional guitar parts they added. But just remember!!!
If you get lost at all, just listen to the song and you'll know what I 
am talking about!
Good luck!

Additional Song Notes: 

-There's acoustic guitar in this as well as quite a few additional
guitar parts during some parts of the song. 

-Ethan = Right Channel
-Don = Left Channel

-Like the Lead Us Home tab, I can gladly add in the vocal melodies
and harmonies but do you guys really want it? For right now I'll leave it
out but I'll possibly update the tab and put the vocal stuff in.

-Song is in E Minor just like Fading Away. It's at least based in 
E minor with a B Mixolydian feel to it. 


Tab Legend:
/ = slide up
\ = slide down

Acoustic #3 - Strumming these Chords:
This guitar is very faintly heard and is burried underneath
all the layers of instruments and such but it's there.
(Not sure if these are the exact chord shapes
their playing but it really does not matter too much.
Their the chords their playing though)
-Strum the chords. Not just once, This is just to show you
what to strum. Follow the rhythm of the song to get a pattern.

Lyrics:
And if you see me losing ground
Don't be afraid to lie
I know the pain inside my heart cant break the fear inside of yours
And if you see me losing faith
In what it means to die
Don't let me leave before I know what lies behind the stained glass doors

Save sorrow for the souls in doubt
Bleed every care out

[Chorus:]
Will you carry me down the aisle that final day
With your tears and cold hands shaking from the weight
When you lower me down beneath that sky of gray
Let the rain fall down and wash away your pain

For every word we never spoke
We have a tear to cry
For every silence like a wall between a better you and I
So if you see me losing sight
Of all the death in life
You'll find the peace in every time I failed to see the death in mine

Let all the fear inside you drown
Tear out the blade and lay it down
Save sorrow for the souls in doubt
Bleed every care out

[Chorus]

Oh, the blood is rushing out
Oh, I'm better off without
Oh, the walls are closing in
Oh, sing for me again

[Chorus]
(Rain down, oh rain down, no care for the flood)

Thanks for tabbing it but dude, its so ****ing complicated....you could've just put it in a simple way that shitty guitar players like me can understand.... I don't need to know what every single guitar does. I just need to know what the main one does.
