Song:I Will Follow You Into The Dark
Band:Death Cab For Cutie
Album:Plans

To make it less confusing I have tabs for each chord for the verse and the chorus.  When 
you see the chord you play the tab.  This is the way Ben Gibbard played the song on the 
album.  Finger pluck the song for best sound but use your nail on the muted notes.

Capo 5th Fret

Am, C, E, Am, Am\G
F, Fm, C\G


Verse 1:
C/G                                   Am\E
Love of mine some day you will die
                  F
But I'll be close behind
                  C                    G
I'll follow you into the dark
C\G                                                Am\E
No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
                            F
Just our hands clasped so tight
               C                          G
Waiting for the hint of a spark


Chorus 1:
Am                            C
If Heaven and Hell decide
                  F                       C      C\B
That they both are satisfied
Am                   C                     G
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs
    Am                         C
If there's no one beside you
                     E                    Am     Am\G
When your soul embarks
          F                Fm                       C/G
Then I'll follow you into the dark


Verse 2:
    C\G                                      Am\E
In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule
                F
I got my knuckles bruised
         C                   G
by a lady in black
C\G                                             Am\E
And I held my tongue as she told me "Son
                   F
fear is the heart of love"
        C                         G
So I never went back


Chorus 2:
Am                            C
If Heaven and Hell decide
                  F                       C      C\B
That they both are satisfied
Am                   C                     G
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs
    Am                         C
If there's no one beside you
                     E                    Am     Am\G
When your soul embarks
          F                Fm                       C/G
Then I'll follow you into the dark


Verse 3:
C\G                                           Am\E
You and me have seen everything to see
                               F1
From Bangkok to Calgary
                C                              G
And the soles of your shoes
       C\G                                         Am\E
Are all worn down the time for sleep is now
                           F1
It's nothing to cry about
                     C                                  G
'cause we'll hold each other soon
                                 F2                F3
In the blackest of rooms


Chorus 3:
Am                            C
If Heaven and Hell decide
                  F                       C      C\B
That they both are satisfied
Am                   C                     G
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs
    Am                         C
If there's no one beside you
                     E                    Am     Am\G
When your soul embarks
          F                Fm                       C/G
Then I'll follow you into the dark
          F1s           Fm1s                    C/G1s
Then I'll follow you into the dark
