Death Cab for Cutie
"I Will Follow You into the Dark"
from Plans

capo 5th fret
F and Fm are barred throughout
I don't barre the G.
This maybe redundant but the /'s indicate bass notes.
There's a chord diagram at the bottom now.

Intro:

Am  C  F  C  G/B
Am  C  G
Am  C  E  Am  G  F  Fm  C/G


1st Verse:

C/G
Love of mine
        Am/E
someday you will die,
            F 
but I'll be close behind;
             C            G
I'll follow you into the dark.

   C/G
No blinding light
              Am/E
or tunnels to gates of white,
               F
just our hands clasped so tight
         C                  G
waiting for the hint of a spark. 


Chorus: 
     
     Am               C              F             C    G/B      
If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied,
  Am           C              G
illuminate the noes on their vacancy signs.
     Am              C                 E      Am     G    
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
     F           Fm           C/G
then I'll follow you into the dark.


2nd Verse:(same chords)
     
   C/G
In Catholic school,
              Am/E
as vicious as Roman rule,
          F 
I got my knuckles bruised 
     C        G
by a lady in black.

      C/G
And I held my tongue 
       Am/E
as she told me "Son, 
            F
fear is the heart of love".
     C          G
So I never went back.


Chorus:(same chords)
     
     Am               C              F             C    G/B      
If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied,
  Am           C              G
illuminate the noes on their vacancy signs.
     Am              C                 E      Am     G    
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
     F           Fm           C/G
then I'll follow you into the dark.


3rd Verse:(tiny change)

C/G
You and me
                Am/E
have seen everything to see
                F
from Bangkok to Calgary, 
        C             G
and the soles of your shoes
 
    C/G
are all worn down.
             Am/E
The time for sleep is now
                    F
but it's nothing to cry about  
             C               G      
'cause we'll hold each other soon
       Am          F
in the blackest of rooms.


Chorus:
     
     Am               C              F             C    G/B      
If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied,
  Am           C              G
illuminate the noes on their vacancy signs.
     Am              C                 E      Am     G    
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
     F           Fm           C       G/B  Am 
Then I'll follow you into the dark
     F           Fm           C    
Then I'll follow you into the dark

Awesome tab man, it sounds perfect to me. Also, is there an easier way to play G/B other than 7 10 9 7 8 7?

The tabs that're displayed when you hover the mouse over the chords aren't what I had in mind. They're the right chords or course but they seem to be an overly complicated way to play them. I play the G/B x 2 0 0 0 3.

Really good tab. Yeah the slash chords are a little tricky. You can actually play the G/B x 2 0 0 3 0. Just a small correction on the previous post.
