Hi everyone! Submitting my first tab here because this is one of my favorite songs off 
of Remedy and I couldn't
find chords for it anywhere so I decided to figure it out myself. I was listening and 
playing along with the
track while I wrote it down so it should be pretty accurate, you'll just have to figure 
out the tempo. Hope you
enjoy it as much as I do!

No Capo, standard tuning
Walk down the E string when you go from G to Em


Intro
G D Em C D

G                   C
Living on bread and wine was easy
     D                  G
for John and James and Mother Mary
            Em        C                  D
and I'm no saint and that's my ball and chain

 G                          C
Cause when I'm passed that silver challis
   D               G
I always drink my fill until it
 Em                 C             D
knocks me down and tangles up my brain

                    G                  D
Yeah buddy, it's a short life, it's a hell of a life
        G                           C
it's a mean old world, when you're kicked to the gutter
         G                D                        G
and the firewater is the one thing to put out the flame

Instrumental
G D Em C D

 G                                   C
Walking through the graveyards and sleeping in alleys
  D                  G
telling myself the same old stories
  Em                     C               D
Drinking that blood and calling it holy wine

 G                      C
Looking in windows and seeing a stranger
 D                         G
going through hell like a fallen angel
 Em                       C                     D
Feeling my bones getting old long before their time

                     G                 D
Yeah buddy, it's a short life, it's a hell of a life
        G                            C
it's a mean old world, when you're kicked to the gutter
          G                                   D
and the firewater gotcha talking in circles again

         G              D
It's an empty bottle passing around
            G                    C
when your hopes and dreams have all burned down
         G                D                        G
and the firewater is the one thing to put out the flame

         D             G-C
Take me home, take me home
 G                                         D
Gather me up in your arms Lord have mercy divine


Instrumental
G D Em C G D G
             D            G
So take me home, take me home
         D             C-D
Take me home, take me home

               G                 D
Cause it's a short life, it's a hell of a life,
        G                         C
it's a mean old world when your kicked to the gutter
          G               D                         Em
and the firewater is the one thing to put out the flame
 C          G               D                         G
Yeah, the firewater is the one thing to put out the flame
