WHEN I'M GONE by Phil Ochs

C                                           Am
There's no place in this world where I'll belong when I'm gone
    Dm                              G
And I won't know the right from the wrong when I'm gone
    C                 G                Am
And you won't find me singin' on this song when I'm gone
     Dm                 G               C
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here


    C                               Am
And I won't feel the flowing of the time when I'm gone
        Dm                            G
All the pleasures of love will not be mine when I'm gone
   C         G                 Am
My pen won't pour a lyric line when I'm gone
     Dm                 G               C
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here


    C                           Am
And I won't breathe the bracing air when I'm gone
    Dm                          G
And I can't even worry 'bout my cares when I'm gone
C        G              Am
Won't be asked to do my share when I'm gone
     Dm                 G               C
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here


    C                           Am
And I won't be running from the rain when I'm gone
    Dm                           G
And I can't even suffer from the pain when I'm gone
   C               G                   Am
Can't say who's to praise and who's to blame when I'm gone
     Dm                 G               C
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here


    C                       Am
Won't see the golden of the sun when I'm gone
        Dm                                G
And the evenings and the mornings will be one when I'm gone
 C               G               Am
Can't be singing louder than the guns when I'm gone
     Dm                 G               C
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here


       C                         Am
All my days won't be dances of delight when I'm gone
        Dm                              G
And the sands will be shifting from my sight when I'm gone
C            G             Am
Can't add my name into the fight when I'm gone
     Dm                 G               C
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here


    C                          Am
And I won't be laughing at the lies when I'm gone
    Dm                              G
And I can't question how or when or why when I'm gone
C          G               Am
Can't live proud enough to die when I'm gone
     Dm                 G               C
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here



[Outro]

C                                           Am
There's no place in this world where I'll belong when I'm gone
    Dm                              G
And I won't know the right from the wrong when I'm gone
    C                 G                Am
And you won't find me singin' on this song when I'm gone
     Dm                 G               Am          G      Dm                 G               C
So I guess I'll have to do it, I guess I'll have to do it, guess I'll have to do it while I'm here

Love this song and what you have done with it. Just wish you guys would help out the older guys like me and put the chords on all the verses for us. Some of us like me don't learn or remember them as easily as we did when we were younger so having them through all the song makes it easier for us and more enjoyable without the stress of trying to remember the chords so we can sing the entire song. Thanks again for your efforts and your consideration.

Great tab, sounds slightly more accurate if you put a G in between the C and A minor on singin'
