Am I Still Alive? Where Did I Collapse? In Edmonton Alberta, Home In Halifax
Float Me Down The River, To The Mosquidobit Harbour, Cause I'm Gettin Nowhere

______________________________________________________________________________

Then you repeat the entire thing again except the intro  under these lyrics:

I Met My Love Down At The Khyber, And We Drifted Through The Crowd, And When I Finally 
Beside Her, You Can hear My Heart Out Loud

And When I'm Gone, She'll Never Leave me, Oh No She'll Never be Untrue, And Buddy If You 
Believe Me You Don't Believe The Sky Is blue.

Am I Still Alive? Where Did I Collapse? In Edmonton Alberta, At Home In Halifax. Float 
Down The River, To The Mosquidobit Harbour, Cause I'm Getting Nowhere

Then There Is A Drum Break and another verse of bass

And If It Feels, Just Like A Toss Up, perhaps It IS, Perhaps it Ain't,
Do you Remember   e|---------------------|

---7---3---3p2p0---------------------------
---5---3---3p2p0---------------------------
-3---3---3-----------------------------

i think this is the main riff for intro and verse:


D|x--12-x--x--x--x--x--|
A|10-10-10-13-10-12-10-|
E|8--8--8--8--8--8--8--|
