[Intro]
E E Em E Am
E E Em E Am
E E Em E Am
E E Em E Am
E E Em E Am
Ohhhhhhh Ohh
E E Em E Am
Ohhhhhhh
E E Em E Am
Ohhhhhhh Ohh
E E Em E Am
Ohhhhhhh


[Verse 1]
E                                   Am       E                     Am
Yellow lines in the dead of the night, I was heading back out west.
E                                   Am     E                      Am                                  
Trying to keep my eyes open wide, I'd gone days without any rest.
E                                  Am       E               Am
Saw him lying in the road looking bad about 20 yards ahead.
E                                   Am        E                              Am
You come back from a trip to the east but you don't come back from the dead.

[Verse 2]
E                                  Am            E                           Am
Sure as hell he was dead as they come and he was already starting to smell.
E                                   Am        E                         Am
Just a kid with his hair slicked back and a knife tucked into his belt.
E                                   Am        E                             Am
Was he unforgiven or just tired of living a life that never felt like his?
E                                              Am 
Though I was was worn and weary, I thought I'd bury him
E                                   Am        E 
and lay his soul to rest out in the desert night.


[Solo]
E    G#  A   E

E    G#  A   E
E    G#  A   E


[Chorus]
E           G#         A           E
I laid him down in a grave in the sand 
E                 G#           A          E
and he grabbed my arm with his dead man's hand.
E                    G#           A          E
He said: "I know I'm dead but I don't wanna lie
E               G#             A        E
in a grave out here where the coyote's cry.

E               G#       A        E
I stared right into the endless void
E                  G#        A         E
and I ain't going back if I got any choice.
E              G#            A           E
I know how to live, I don't know how to die
E                   G#              A     E
and there ain't no thrills in the afterlife.

E           G#        A       E
So lift me up out of here my friend
E                   G#              A    E
and I'll wander the night 'til the ages end."
E           G#        A               E
Lit by the moon he walked through the sand
E                G#            A          E
and he waved goodbye with his dead man's hand.

[Outro]
E                     Am                   E    Em  E  Am
He will roam forever, haunting the desert.
E                     Am                   E    Em  E  Am  E
He will roam forever, haunting the desert.

Seems about right, the G# is very brief and not a full measure it seems to me but it's the right chord. Thanks for putting this up.
