This song is amazing. Been playing it quite a bit.
The song has been tabbed by me BY EAR. This is no book and no machine,

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


[Chorus]
G                        Cmaj7                     Em
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             G                        Cmaj7                 Em
and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along
G                        Cmaj7                     Em
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             G                      Cmaj7               Em
and when the boatman comes to ferry me away to where we all belong


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


[Chorus]
G                        Cmaj7                     Em
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             G                        Cmaj7                 Em
and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along
G                        Cmaj7                     Em
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             G                      Cmaj7               Em
and when the boatman comes to ferry me away to where we all belong

G                        Cmaj7                     Em
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             G                        Cmaj7                 Em
and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along
G                        Cmaj7                     Em
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone

Hey man, looks good! I tabbed it out by ear too and was playing a harder version up in a higher register. I like your open chord version. My suggestions in the main riff:

In the D chord bit, instead of picking the 3rd fret on the B string, I'm pretty sure he's playing an open G, and then going right into the C chord. On the Em chord bit instead of 2 0 2 on the G string I'm hearing 2 0 and then the open A string.

And yeah, that second chord in the chorus is hard to really hear. I've been playing a C/G (C chord but play the G on the low E string).

Actually your version of the Em riff part is right for the "b" ending. My correction applies to the first ending (he plays two variations of the riff).

thanks bro
my version is actually just a "lazy" version... or as i like to call it: acoustic.
im going to put up a version 2 for the verse so noone gets confused :)
ill put your name and tab on version 2, if thats fine with you.
to be honest, i saw your tab in the queue and spontanously thought: damn im lazy :)
