Verse-
Guitar 1
        Am                              E
Well, I wonder which song they're gonna play when we go
            Am                                         F
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                                      F
I hope we don't hear Marley's chains we forged in life
           Am            F               C          G
'cause the chains I been hearing now for most of my life

Chorus-
Guitar 1
                 C                             F
Did you hear the '59 Sound coming through on Grandmama's radio? 
                  Am            G                  F
Did you hear the rattling chains in the hospital walls?
                  C                                  F
Did you hear the old gospel choir when they came to carry you over?
                  Am           G         F
Did you hear your favorite song one last time?

Verse-
Guitar 1
      Am                              E
And I wonder were you scared when the metal hit the glass?
           Am            
See, I was playing a show down the road
                           F
when your spirit left your body
         Am
And they told me on the front lawn
    E
I'm sorry I couldn't go,
      Am                                                     F
but I still know the song and the words and her name and the reasons
      Am                  F        C          G
And I know 'cause we were kids and we used to hang
      Am                  F        C          G
And I know 'cause we were kids and we used to hang
