     Am                                                 Dm                         Am

Verse I:
Am               Dm
If I should go before you
G                      Dm
  When that long night comes
      Am               Dm
We’ll meet in the ever-after
             G                  Am
Please don’t follow me into the sun
Am                      Dm
If you should cross the white light
G                           Dm
   And find yourself in the black
     Am                Dm
I’ll be right there, behind you
         G                    Am
You will have no need to look back

Chorus:
              Dm                   G
And when that night cries itself, awake
Dm                     G
Dying, in the light of day
    Dm                  G
Our endless love will remain
  Dm     C     Am (see riff below*)
Until we meet again

*Chorus riff (single notes):
    “Un-til we  meet  a----gain”  
        Dm      C          Am

Instrumental:
Am (four bars)

Verse II:
Am               Dm
If I should go before you
G                  Dm
  Into the great unknown
     Am                     Dm
I’ll leave my ghost right beside you
          G            Am
You won’t have to wait alone—

Chorus:
              Dm                   G
And when that night cries itself, awake
Dm                     G
Dying, in the light of day
Dm                      G
Our endless love will remain
     (riff)
Until we meet …

Final Chorus:
Dm                G
Crying ourselves awake
Dm                     G
Dying, in the light of day
Dm                      G
Our endless love will remain
(riff)         Am (fade out)
Until we meet again

I'd like to get an idea of the picking in between chords during the song, any ideas on what the pattern might be?
