Again i couldnt find any good live acoustic tab for this one, so i made up my own. Here 
is video of Corey Taylor playing it live:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xU2uFpyfHMg

Tuning half step down (Eb)
Chords used:
E       (022100) (002100)- on very beginning one time
C#5      (046600) actually Corey plays it like that (04x600) - your choice
C/G     (3x5500) again the original (3xx500)
Asus2   (x02200)
Asus*   (x02100)
B       (x24400)
G#      (466544) only in chorus + played with thumb wrapped over neck


E                       C#5
It's only common sense, so please don't take offense,

C/G                        Asus2  Asus*
I gotta say what's on my mind.

E                        C#5
Cuz all this bitterness, has made me second guess,

C/G                         Asus2    Asus*
and I've waited all my life.

B                    C#5
You know it's true, it isn't me, it isn't you,

C/G                  B
I can't be your man, and here's what I don't understand,

Asus2                            C#5
if I can't live without you and I can't breathe when I'm with you,

B                          C#5 fast G#  E
what am I really doing here.

Asus2
I don't want to live without you,

C#5
but God only knows what I've been through,

B                              Asus2 Asus*
cuz dying is all we're doin here,

E                     C#5
and me I'm suffering, til I can't feel a thing,

C/G                         Asus2 Asus*
it's all I got when I want more,

E                        C#5                         C/G
if I waste one more day, then they can take me away because it will be worse
         Asus2 Asus*
than it was before.

B                   C#5
You know it's true, it isn't me, it isn't you,

Thanks a lot for a live version.
That's very detailed.
If anyone has trouble, just google "Corey Taylor - Dying (acoustic live)"

Just want to say that what you have labeled as D5 is actully C#5, and it should actually be C#m, or you can even play it open on an acoustic and it sounds great. Just thought this might help people struggling with getting this to sound right.
