[VERSE]

Dm
When I hear that trumpet sound
          Dsus2                   Dm
I'm gonna rise right out of the ground
           G
Ain't no grave
     Am           Dm
Can hold my body down


[VERSE]

Dm                      Dsus2
Well, look way down the river
    Dm                 Dsus2
And what do you think I see
   Dm           Dsus2
I see a band of angels
             Dm         Dsus2
And they're coming after me


[CHORUS]

Ain't no grave

There ain't no grave

Well, look down yonder, Gabriel

Put your feet on the land and sea
     Dm                Dsus2
But Gabriel, don't you blow your trumpet
  Dm               Dsus2
Until you hear from me

There ain't no grave

Excellent job on the tab, but I think that the C-chord is actually a Am...I played this tab along to the song and Am sounds better. Anyway, its a good tab!!!

I WAS IN A QUANDRY AS WELL ABOUT THE C CHORD AND Am... I WENT WITH THE C CHORD... IT WAS A TOUGH DECISION BUT YOU MAY BE RIGHT ..THAT WAS MY FIRST INSTINCT...MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE STAYED WITH IT... BY THE WAY, I ALSO SUBMITTED I CORINTHIANS 15:55..... SO BE ON THE WATCH FOR IT..IT SHOULD BE UP IN A FEW DAYS

I MADE THE CHANGE TO THE TAB FROM A C CHORD TO THE Am AS YOU STATED AND AS I BELIEVED TO BE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME.. I DON'T KNOW WHY I CHANGED IT.. MAYBE WHEN I PLAYED IT AND SANG IT WITHOUT THE CD IT FELT BETTER... LOL..THANKS FOR SETTING ME STRAIGHT... AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF I CORINTHIANS WHEN IT SHOWS UP...
