Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)
Here's a kick at the can, cause none of the chords worked for me on this site so far,
this song anyway. I once doubled rhythym guitar when a band was covering this, I made it
pretty much, but it sounds alright if you play it along with The Essential B.O.C. Album. 
is my first tab so bear with me.

[Intro]

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---2-0----0----0----0---2-0----0----0------------------------------------|
D|--2------0----0----0---2------0----0-------------------------------------|
A|-0------2----3----2---0------2----3--------------------------------------|
E|-------3----1----3----------3----1---------------------------------------|
That's the main rhythym. It took me a while to figure out, not sure about the 1 3 0 0,
last 0 might be something else, but you can change that how you like. That's the little
bit. Once the drum fill comes in, hit a 'G' chord, something like.. 355433, from Bottom 
up.
Then the structure looks like this:

Am   G   F   G  Am   G     G

It's really simple from then on in. You can double the rhythym line too, but if you're 
along, it's kinda tough to keep the thing going right.


[Verse 1]

Am  G    F     G    Am   G   
  G
All our times have come
Am  G     F    G      Am   G   
  G
Here but now they're gone
F             G        Am       (Am7 if you like it better, I do :P)
Seasons don't fear the reaper
(Am)       F        G          Am                 F
Nor do the wind the sun or the rain (we can be like they are)


[Chorus]

G       Am          G        F
Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)
(F)  G       Am          G        F
Baby take my hand (don't fear the reaper)
(F)      G       Am         G        F
We'll be able to fly (don't fear the reaper)
(F)  G        Am    G   F   G
Baby I'm your man
Am G  F  G  Am  G  F  G
La-la-la-la-la
Am G  F  G  Am  G  F  G
La-la-la-la-la
Am  G   F  G  Am   G   F  


[Verse 2]

G
Valentine is done
Am  G    F     G     Am   G   
  G
Here but now they're gone
F   G    Am    Am
Romeo and Juliet
(Am) F         G      Am      G     
 (thats the F in the next line...)
Are together in eternity (Romeo and Juliet)
F      G             Am                 G          
(see above)
40,000 men and women everyday (like Romeo and Juliet)
F      G             Am        G       F
40,000 men and women everyday (redefine happiness)
F       G           Am          (Am)   G    
  F
Another 40,000 coming everyday (we can be like they are)


[Chorus]

G       Am          G        F
Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)
(F)  G       Am          G        F
Baby take my hand (don't fear the reaper)
(F)      G       Am         G        F
We'll be able to fly (don't fear the reaper)
(F)  G        Am    G    F    G
Baby I'm your man
Am G  F  G  Am  G  F  G
La-la-la-la-la
Am G  F  G  Am  G  F  G
La-la-la-la-la
Am (let ring & fade)

(OK Kids, Here's the hard part. Wicked-ass solo, Tabbed in some other section. The
background chords, are something like this when they're in)

F - G - Cm (?) - G - F - G - Cm (?) - G
(I cant find anything better than that C minor, when you've got the full distortion on,
sounds fine, but if you get a chord thats better, Please Email)

Then it fades... and you get your Rhythym Fill again..

Am  G  F  G


[Verse 3]

Am  G   F      G   Am  G  
 G
Love of two is one
Am  G    F   G       Am  G  
 G
Here but now they're gone
F             G        Am      G (Start doing all upstrokes until 'Come on')
Came the last night of sadness
(G)        F              G           Am     G
And it was clear that she couldn't go on
(G)      F        G           Am             G
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
(G) F       G            Am          G
The candles blew out and disappeared
(G) F        G             Am                  
       F
The curtains flew and then he appeared (saying don't be afraid)


[Chorus]

G       Am            G      F
Come on baby (and she had no fear)
(F)  G         Am        G                     F
       And she ran to him (then they started to fly)
(F)         G             Am            G            
      F
They looked backwards and said goodbye (she had become like they are)
(F)     G         Am            G              F
She had taken his hand (she had become like they are)
G       Am          G        F        G
Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)

Am  G  F  G  Am  G  F  G

I love that bass riff at the end.
Now, I don't know if the stupid chord things will work here on ultimate-guitar (Where
tab shall stay, if seen elsewhere, email talek_cornish@hotmail.com) Where you hover you
and the chords appear.. so heres what I used..

    Am      G          F      Am7     Cm (?)
e|--0-------3---3------1-------3-------3-----------------------------------|
B|--2-------3---3(0)---1-------2-------4-----------------------------------|
G|--2-------4-O-0------2-------2-------5-----------------------------------|
D|--2-------5-R-0------3-------2-------5-----------------------------------|
A|--0-------5---2------3-------0-------3-----------------------------------|
E|--x-------3---3------1-------x-------x-----------------------------------|

If anyone can find an error in the tabs or lyrics here, or if you see this tab on a site
than Ultimate-Guitar, Email me @ talek_Cornish@hotmail.com .

Hope you guys enjoy, and if you play it right, you can go laugh at Buck Dharma, ^_^. 
on, 7alflick out.
