G  Gsus4  G  Gsus4  (x2)


Verse 1:
    C
I'm closer to the golden dawn,
I can't believe the wagon's gone,
     G      Gsus4     G     Gsus4
It's history
    C
I'm living in a callous realm,
Where others seem to dig it
         G           Gsus4     G     Gsus4
Just too much reality
    B
I'm frightened by the total goal,
    C
I'm drawing to the ragged hole,
      G             Em         Cmaj7
And I ain't got the wagon anymore,
     C             Am        G    Gsus4    
   Gsus4
No I ain't got the wagon anymore

Verse 2:
       C
I'm the twisted name on Uma's eyes,
I'm living proof of Cindy's lies,
   G      Gsus4     G     Gsus4
Of destiny
    C
I'm drawing between the light and dark,
Where others see their targets,
            G       Gsus4     G     Gsus4
I can't see anything
B
Should I leave the engine on,
   C
To listen to that mountain song,
    G              Em              Cmaj7
I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought,
      C             Am        G
And I ain't got the wagon anymore


Chorus:
G        D            Em
Don't believe in yourself
         A            D
Don't deceive with belief
              Em                    C
The knowledge comes with death's release
     D      G     Em     A
Ahh oh....

Verse 3:
C
Not too stable hanging by a string
Can't face the thoughts no wheels will bring
  G       Gsus4    G     Gsus4
I gotta go
     C
It's bad enough being at home
Without a way to leave the damage
   G         Gsus4     G      Gsus4
Is gonna show
      B
If I don't explain what you oughta know
        C
You can tell me all about it at the next ball show
    G              Em              Cmaj7
I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought
      C             Am    G
And I ain't got the power anymore...


Chorus: (x3)
G        D            Em
Don't believe in yourself
         A            D
Don't deceive with belief
              Em                    C
The knowledge comes with death's release
     D     G     Em     A
Ahh oh....

Very nice - love the song. I think the B should be a Bb7 but everything else sounds great.

intro is wrong.

should be this, i think:

E-||----------------------------|
B-||----------------------------|
G-||----------------------------|
D-||-----------2-4-5------------|
A-||-------0-2-------3-3-2------|
E-||-0-2-3-----------------3-2-0|

actually this is both closer to how he plays it and easier to land on the C chord:

E-||----------------------------|
B-||----------------------------|
G-||---------------0------------|
D-||-----------2-4--------------|
A-||-------0-2-------3-2-0------|
E-||-0-2-3-----------------3-2-0|
Em C
