[Intro]

Em C G D (x2)


[Verse]

Em              C
I look out to a little house
G                 D
  Nearly fallen apart
Em              C
In there sits a wicked man
    D                  Em
Who tortured my simple heart
Em              C
Would it take another step 
        G                   D
Towards something that's so vile
Em                C
He gets up and he looks at me
      D           Em
and I show him my denial


[Chorus]

(Strum once, normal strumming at end of chorus)
G              D
Oh, here's the reaper man
     C              D
He's looking out to me
G              D
Oh, here's the reaper man
     C              G          Em C G D Em C D Em
He's coming to take me, da-da-dum


[Verse]

Em           C
I have spent sleepless nights
G                  D
  Dreaming of the day
Em                  C
That he'll come and take a step
    D               Em
And walk towards my way
Em                     C               G            D
But brittle bones and aching limbs is where I wanna be
Em            C          D         Em
Oh, when that wicked man comes for me


[Chorus]

G              D
Oh, here's the reaper man
     C              D
He's looking out to me
G              D
And oh, there's the reaper man
     C              G            Em C G D       Em      C D Em
He's coming to take me, da-da-daum        da-da-dum-dadadum


[Verse]

(Strum once)
Em               C
But I believe in redemption,
G                 D
  From a brighter light
Em                  C
But I ain't going with him
    D            Em
Without one last fight

(Normal strumming)

Em           C           
Oh, but that reaper man, 
G               D
How he loves me so
Em               C
And I can't hear his whispers 
       D         Em
As the cold wind blows


[Outro]

G          D
Oh, here's the reaper man
     C              D
He's looking out to me
G          D
And oh, here's the reaper man
     C              G 
He's coming to take me,
G          D
Oh, there's the reaper man
     C              D
He's looking out to me
G          D
And oh, there's that reaper man
     C              G            Em C      G    D          Em C D G (single strum G)
He's coming to take me, da-da-daup  no no, noo- no no no noo-
