C       F            Dm     Am              C
Live or die before I get it done will you decide?
C       F                   Dm   Am                 C
Take my words and turn them into signs they will survive
          C    F        Dm Am            C
because a long time ago I  knew not to deprive
     C        F              Dm   Am                  C
It's safe out there now your everywhere just like the sky
    C     F                     Dm    Am                C
And you I love you, you are the lucid dream you are the ride
             C    F                  Dm   Am                C
And when you hear this you know it's your jam it's your goodbye


C                        Fmaj7                     Am
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             C                        Fmaj7                 Am
and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along
C                        Fmaj7                     Am
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             C                      Fmaj7               Am
and when the boatman comes to ferry me away to where we all belong


C      F                  Dm      Am                 C
We all cross when we were feeling lost it's just the time
      C     F               Dm    Am            C
Could terry cry the day her lover died she recognized
            C    F             Dm   Am              C
Because you gave her a life of real love it's no surprise
    C          F            Dm        Am               C
The nights are long but the years are short when your alive
C        F                Dm  Am            C
Way back when we’ll never be again it was a time,
           C   F              Dm  Am              C
It's gonna get you; so glad I met you to walk the line


C                        Fmaj7                     Am
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             C                        Fmaj7                 Am
and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along
C                        Fmaj7                     Am
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             C                      Fmaj7               Am
and when the boatman comes to ferry me away to where we all belong

C                        Fmaj7                     Am
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             C                        Fmaj7                 Am
and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along
C                        Fmaj7                     Am
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             C                      Fmaj7               Am

(Lyric suggestions for next lines please)

C                        Fmaj7                Am
Let me live so when it's time to die even the reaper cries
C                       Fmaj7                Am
Let me die so when it's time to live another sun will rise


       C         Fmaj7      Am
I said Yeah  YeahYeah   YeahYeah
       C         Fmaj7      Am
I said Yeah  YeahYeah   YeahYeah  (cont. a while, fading)


C                        Fmaj7                     Am
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             C                        Fmaj7                 Am
and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along
C                        Fmaj7                     Am
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             C                      Fmaj7               Am
and when the boatman comes to ferry me away to where we all belong


C                        Fmaj7                     Am
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             C                        Fmaj7                 Am
and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along
C                        Fmaj7                     Am
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             C                      Fmaj7               Am
and when the boatman comes to ferry me away to where we all belong

C                        Fmaj7                     Am
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone

C                        Fmaj7                     Am
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
