UG messed up the synch between the chords and the lyrics, but you'll figure it out, 
you're smart.

The intro is just E and B.
Turn away,
B                     C#m
If you could get me a drink
Of water 'cause my lips are chapped and faded
Call my aunt Marie
B                       C#m
Help her gather all my things
And bury me in all my favorite colors,
       A             A#halfdim B
My sisters and my brothers, still,
  Cdim      C#m         Am
I will not kiss you,
                    F#m                    B                       E
'Cause the hardest part of this is leaving you.

Now turn away,
B                                        C#m
'Cause I'm awful just to see
'Cause all my hairs abandoned all my body,
Oh, my agony,
B                                      C#m
Know that I will never marry,
Baby, I'm just soggy from the chemo
        A                               A#halfdim B
But counting down the days to go
    Cdim       C#m
It just ain't living
And I just hope you know
That if you say (if you say)
Goodbye today (goodbye today)
     C#m                  C#*
I'd ask you to be true (cause I'd ask you to be true)
                    F#m                    B                      C#m**
'Cause the hardest part of this is leaving you
                    F#m                    B                      E
'Cause the hardest part of this is leaving you

*The guitar/piano stays on C#, but the bass plays C# B A G#. It's possible to play the 
bass note under the C# triad, but it's not necessary.

**Same idea. The guitar/piano stays on the C#m, but the bass plays C# C B A#.

Here's how to play the chords on guitar. (going from low E to high E)

E - 022100
B - X2444X
C#m- X46654
Am - X02210
A - X02220
A#halfdim - X12120
Cdim - X3424X
F#m - 244222
Eaug - 032110
C# - X4666X

Hope this helps!
