Tuned Half-Step Down

Intro: Am, Fmaj7/C, Am, G, Fmaj7/C  x2

        Am                              E
Well, I wonder which song they're gonna play when we go.
            Am                                          Fmaj7/C
I hope it's something quiet and minor and peaceful and slow.
        Am                                 E
When we float out into the ether, into the Everlasting Arms,
        Am                                        Fmaj7/C
I hope we don't hear Marley's chains we forged in life.
    
          Am            Fmaj7/C          C          G
See these chains I been hearing now for most of my life,
      Am            Fmaj7/C          C          G
These chains I been hearing now for most of my life.

                 C                           Fmaj7/C
Did you hear the '59 Sound coming through on grandmama's radio?
                 Am             G                 Fmaj7/C 
Did you hear the rattling chains in the hospital walls?
                 C                                  Fmaj7/C
Did you hear the old gospel choir when they came to carry you over?
                  Am           G          Fmaj7/C
Did you hear your favorite song one last time?

      Am                              E
And I wonder were you scared when the metal hit the glass?
           Am                                                       Fmaj7/C
See, I was playing a show down the road when your spirit left your body.
         Am                             E
And they told me on the front lawn. I'm sorry I couldn't go,
      Am                                                     Fmaj7/C
But I still know the song and the words and her name and the reasons.
      Am                  Fmaj7/C     C         G
And I know 'cause we were kids and we used to hang
  Am                  Fmaj7/C      C         G
I know 'cause we were kids and we used to hang

                 C                           Fmaj7/C

Great tab and a great song. Sounds spot on to me, though the acoustic version I heard was played with a cappo on the 2nd fret. Thanks for posting it.
