intro: C F

Gm        C     Am              F
Jack and Edie lying across my bed
Gm       C             Am             F
Flying high like the spirits of the dead
    C              F
The living and the dead
    C              F
The living and the dead

            C               Am        F
Our Lady of Sorrows and the long dark night
Gm         C
How many candles could I light
        C              F
For the living and the dead
    C              F        G
The living and the dead

                        C
What's that black smoke rising Jack
       Am       F     G
Is the world on fire
                    C
What's that distant singing
        F
Is it a heavenly choir
    C              F
The living and the dead
    C              F
The living and the dead

        C               Am           F
I think about you Jack, watching the tv
G              C
And drinking booze
         F
Shame on you, shame on me
G                C
But how can we help it
          F
There was no where else to go
G                                    F
I sent Julie and Billy out on that long hard road
        C         F
on that long hard road
        C         F
on that long hard road

F                         C
I'm just back from Mexico city
                     Am
I came back north to Texas
F
To rest my weary head
                               C
My true love is fresh from the battle field

F             C         Am
Sewing up the dying and carting off the dead
                        C
My baby don't stand for no fighting
            Am              F
Amongst the living and the dead

F C Am F G C Am F

F                       C
What's that black smoke rising Jack
       Am       F
Is the world on fire
G                   C
What's that distant singing
        Am       F
Is it a heavenly choir
    C              F
The living and the dead (repeat)
    C


optional: When switching from C to F  and F to C on "living and the dead" take the 
on the first fret off for a beat before switching

I just watched a couple live performances of the song, and I believe the Gm chord should be a G7. Just my two cents!
