Capo

1st fret
Standard tuning, capo on the first fret. 

The timing on the outro is rather tricky at first, but with practice, it's not too hard.

[Verse]

Am       Dm                  G
Up on a mountain over the plains
             C            C/B          Am
Christopher sat with his hands to his face
                 Dm                      G
This urn is her casket, this ash her remains
                 C             C/B       Am
It doesn't feel right just to throw it away
               Dm                            G
So he kept it with him everywhere that he strayed
                  C          C/B             Am
With long narrow shadows he shouldered the weight
               Dm                          G
If I keep her with me, then I'll keep her safe
                          C          C/B
He choked down the words that he wanted to say

[Chorus]

F             C            G           Am         G         F
Wish I could run from the place that poisons my passion away
              C            G
Wish I never wrote her anything
     Am          G           Am
Let this be the last song I sing

[Interlude]

Am Dm G C C/B (x2)

{Verse]

Am               Dm                             G
Grooves in his shoulders, the urn still in his clasp
                 C                C/B       Am
Christopher struggled against the river so fast
              Dm                          G
Imaginary messiahs like the world on his back
                       C                C/B            Am
pushed him under the current where he drowned with the ash
            Dm            G
There's no moral to your story
              C     C/B       Am
Yeah they're lying again my friend
            Dm            G              C   C/B
There's no moral to your story, my friend

[Chorus]

F        C          G          Am           G        F
Say goodbye to the place that poisons your passion away
                C            G
If you write a lost love anything
          Am         G             F   Fm
Don't let it be the last song you sing
