Verse1:
C
All this talk of growin' old
              Am
is gettin' me down my love
                Em
like a cat in a bag
           F/A
waiting to drown
  Gsus4    C          Gsus4  C
I know I'm coming down


Verse2:
      C
And I hope you're thinking of me
           Am
as you lay down inside
                    Em
now the drugs don't work
                  F/A
they just make me worse
    Gsus4                C         Gsus4   C
but I know I'll see your face again


Chorus:
           F/A  Em
cause baby ooohhhh
          Am               G
if heaven calls I'm coming too

and baby ooohhhh
          Am                    G
if heaven calls I'm coming with you


Verse3:
      C
But I know I'm on a losing streak
              Am
I passed down my old street
                 Em
and if you wanna stop
               F/A
then give me a shout
              Gsus4
and I'll come running down
    C          Gsus4   C
you know I will
                    Em
But the drugs don't work
                  F/A
they just make me worse

Chorus:
           F/A  Em
cause baby ooohhhh
          Am               G
if heaven calls I'm coming too
         F/A  Em
and baby ooohhhH
          Am               G
if heaven calls I'm coming too
              F/A Em
Just like you said
           Am                     G
I'm better dead, when I ain't got you
              F/A Em
Just like you said
           Am                     G
I'm better dead, when I ain't got you
                 Em

                 F/A
then just let me know
         Gsus4        C        Gsus4   C
and I'll sing in your ear again
                    Em
but the drugs don't work
                  F/A
they just make me worse
    Gsus4                C         Gsus4   C
but I know I'll see your face again
                Em
like a cat in a bag

your Gsus4 sounds right, good on you. however your F/A chord sounds out of place to me, its just too bright for this song. i think an Fmaj7 is much more appropriate personally, good tab never the less, well done!

the lyrics are crap! i think that you need to sort them out, and the Fmaj7 sounds good to me. Thats what i have been using until i found a better tab with the rite lyrics

are these the lyrics for the demo version, cause you couldnt get them wrong on the album version they're quite easy to hear
