Verse:

A        D   
We were above
G                 D            A 
You were standing underneath us
        D       G      [Figure 1]
We were not yet lovers
A            D     
Dragons were smoked
G          D               
Bumblebees were stinging us
A    D           G     [Figure 1]
I was soon to be crazy

Bridge:

     D          A     [Figure 2]
Eat drink and be merry
    D        A     [Figure 2]
For tomorrow we die
     D          A     [Figure 2]
Eat drink and be merry
    D        A     [Figure 2]
For tomorrow we die
Cause of tripping Billies

Boyd Solo: Like Verse

Verse II:

We're wearing nothing
Nothing but our shadows
Shadows falling down on the beach sand
Remembering once, out on the beaches
We wore pineapple grass bracelets

Chorus:

So why would you care
To get out of this place
You and me and all our friends
Such a happy human race
Cause of tripping Billies

Intro

Bridge:

     D          A      [Figure 2]
Eat drink and be merry
    D        A      [Figure 2]
For tomorrow we die
     D          A      [Figure 2]
Eat drink and be merry
    D        A      [Figure 2]
For tomorrow we die
Cause of tripping Billies

Boyd Solo: Like verse.

Verse III:

We are all sitting
Legs crossed around a fire
My yellow flame she dances
Tequila drinking, oh, our minds will wander
To wondrous places

Chorus:

So why would you care
To get out of this place
You and me and all our friends
Such a happy human race

Bridge:

Eat drink and be merry
For tomorrow we'll die
Eat drink and be merry
For tomorrow we'll die
(Check it out, Boyd)

This verse of this song is quite complicated and cannot be described by simple chords.

This is sort of a "Fake" version. Sure, the chords are right, but it ain't how Dave Matthews plays it, no sir.
