2nd fret
Tuning: Standard - Capo 2nd
Strumming Patterns:
 Verse- down, down, up, up, down up,   up, down, up,
 Chorus- down, up, down, up,  up, down, up,  up, down, up,  up, down, up

Right after you strum Dsus4 twice (down, up) you switch to D and same with Em7 to Em

Edit: It's Cmaj, not Cadd9, so if you see a tab with Cadd9 it's wrong; it screws up the sound and the song
if you want proof then watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8HPk26gdW0

Verse:


G         Dsus4   D                   Em7 Em    Cmaj        
There's a funeral procession on the highway,
G       Dsus4  D        Em7 Em    Cmaj
Traffic screeches to a halt.
G              Dsus4 D          Em7 Em    Cmaj
There's people searching for a better way,
              G   Dsus4 D Em7  Cadd9
To live their lives.
G      Dsus4 D                   Em7 Em    Cmaj      
Johnny lived a good life, you'll hear them say
G           Dsus4 D          Em7 Em    Cmaj
As tears of sadness soak the ground.
G          Dsus4 D            Em7 Em    Cmaj
The reaper crept in, took his breath away,
                     G   Dsus4 D Em7 Em Cmaj
In the middle of the night.

[Chorus:]
Em                               Cmaj
We celebrate the lives of the dead,
                       G                           D
It's like a man's best party, only happens when he dies.
Em                                Cmaj
We gather 'round to pay our respects,
            G                                  D
While their souls are still searching for the light,
                           (BACK TO VERSE CHORDS)
Searching for the light.

Verse:

G               Dsus4 D           Em7 Em    Cmaj
So please don't come to me on my dying day,
G          Dsus4 D Em7 Cadd9
Just let me go in peace.
G            Dsus4 D        Em7 Em    Cmaj
With all the things that I forgot to say,
                       G  Dsus4 D Em7 Em Cmaj
Still racing through my mind.
G           Dsus4 D            Em7 Em    Cmaj
And don't you bury me six feet under ground,
G         Dsus4 D      Em7 Em    Cmaj
Just burn my body in a box.
G          Dsus4 D Em7 Em        Cmaj
And let my ashes blow with the wind,
             G  Dsus4 D Em7 Em Cmaj
Out into the night.... sky.


Chorus:

Em                               Cmaj
We celebrate the lives of the dead,
                       G                           D
It's like a man's best party, only happens when he dies.
Em                                Cmaj
We gather 'round to pay our respects,
            G                                  D
While their souls are still searching for the light,
                           (BACK TO VERSE CHORDS)
Searching for the light.
