[Intro]
C  Fmaj7  Am  G  Fmaj7 
(During half of the last G and Fmaj7 the 3rd fret on the e string is held)

[Verse]
       Am                              E
Well I wonder which song they're gonna play when we go
            Am                                         F 
I hope it's something quiet and minor and peaceful and slow
           Am                               E
And as we float out into the ether into the everlasting arms
          Am                                          F 
I hope we don't hear Marley's chains we forged in life
              Am               Fmaj7          C           G
'Cause these chains I've been hearin' now for most of my life
          Am               Fmaj7           C           G
And these chains I've been hearin' now for most of my life

[Chorus]
        C
Did you hear the '59 sound 
                    Fmaj7
Coming through on Grandmama's radio?
                  Am               G
Did you hear the rattlin' chains 
                       Fmaj7
In the hospital walls?
                     C
Did you hear the old gospel choir 
                           Fmaj7
When they came to carry you over?
                        Am          G
And did you hear your favorite song 
                Fmaj7
One last time?

[Verse]
         Am                             E
And I wonder, were you scared when the metal hit the glass?
            Am                                                     F 
Well I was playing a show down the road when your spirit left your body
          Am                                             E
And they told me when I was on the front lawn, and I'm sorry that I couldn't go
       Am                                                             F 
But I still know the song and the words and her name and every reason
       Am                  Fmaj7       C        G
And I know 'cause we were kids and we used to hang
       Am                  Fmaj7       C        G
And I know 'cause we were kids and we used to hang

[Chorus]
                  C
Did you hear the '59 sound 
                    Fmaj7
Coming through on Grandmama's radio?
                  Am               G
Did you hear the rattlin' chains 
                       Fmaj7
In the hospital walls?
                   C
Did you hear the old gospel choir 
                   Fmaj7
When they came to carry you over?
                     Am          G
Did you hear your favorite song 
                Fmaj7
One last time?

[Bridge]
            Am Fmaj7 C G
Young boys
            Am Fmaj7 C G
Young girls 
            Am Fmaj7 C G
Young boys
            Am Fmaj7 C G
Young girls 

[Verse]
          Am                Fmaj7     C      G
Well you ain't supposed to die on a Saturday night
Am                Fmaj7     C       G
Ain't supposed to die on a Saturday night
Am                Fmaj7     C       G
Ain't supposed to die on a Saturday night
Am                    Fmaj7 C   G
You ain't supposed to leave my life

[Chorus]
                 C
Did you hear the '59 sound 
                    Fmaj7
Coming through on Grandmama's radio?
                     Am               G
Did you hear those rattlin' chains 
                       Fmaj7
In the hospital walls?
                   C
Did you hear the old gospel choir 
                     Fmaj7
When they came to carry your body over?
                     Am          G
Did you hear your favorite song 
                Fmaj7
One last time?

[Chorus/Outro]
                  C
Did you hear the old gospel choir 
                    Fmaj7          
When they came to carry you over?
                     Am          G
Did you hear your favorite song 
                Fmaj7
One last time?
            Am Fmaj7 C G
Young boys
            Am Fmaj7 C G
Young girls 
            Am Fmaj7 C G
Young boys
            Am Fmaj7 C G C
Young girls

Correct for this version, and if you tune down to D standard and remove the capo, this is 100% accurate to the studio version as well. Awesome job
