Tip: This song isn't really a popular one from the Eraserheads but this is my
favorite. Make sure you pull off the chords precisely at the right words for
better sound. I suggest you listen to it first.

 (Check out Poorman's Grave (Intro) tab for complete Intro)

Intro: 
Am-F-G                                                                      Am-F-G#


1st Stanza
Am                          F-G
I know a man who had nothing
Am                          F-G
He was a poor man all his life
Am                          F-G
He lived in a shack by the roadside
Am                          F-G
With starving kids and a loving wife

2nd Stanza
Am                             F-G
He went to church every Sunday
Am                             F-G
He prays from morning until night, he said
Am                                 F-G
Good Lord, why have you forsaken me
Am                            F-G
When everything I did I thought was right



Refrain:
Em                    Am
Now my Life is coming to an end 
      F                            C  
There's only one thing I'm wishing for
Em                  Am
All my days I have never sinned
      F 
So I hope you won't ignore 
 G                  G..G..GGGG
What I'm asking for...



Chorus I:
C
Oh honey when I die
F                 G
Dress me up in a coat and tie
C
Give me a pair of shoes
F                        G 
That I haven't wore in a long time
C
Put me in a golden box
F                  G
Not a cross with a pile of rocks
C
Bury me where the grass is green 
          F           G   
And the gates are shining...



Chorus II:
C    G           F
Oh honey when I die
C
Give me a bed of roses 
G              F 
Where I could lie
           C               G            F
I'm gonna use up all the money that I saved
C            G              F(pause)        G-G#
Coz I dont wanna lie in a poor man's grave...


3rd stanza
Am                          F-G
I know a man who had nothing
Am                         F         G
He dreamed of satin sheets all his life
Am                            F-G
He lived and worked like a dog
Am                              F         G
Licking every boot he sees just to survive


4th stanza
Am                             F-G
He comes home drunk every night
Am                       F            G
Wakes up the kids and talks to his wife, he said
Am                       F      G
Honey you have been so good to me
Am                      F     G
I only wish we had a better life


Refrain II:
Em                       Am       
And now my life's coming to an end
          F                          C
There's only one thing I'm wishing for
Em                    Am
All my days I have lived in shame
      F                
So I hope you won't ignore
       G                 G..G..GGGG
Just what I'm asking for...



Chorus I:
C 
Oh honey when I die
F                 G
Dress me up in a coat and tie
C        
Give me a pair of shoes
F                        G
That I haven't wore in a long time
C
Put me in a golden box
F                   G
Not a cross with a pile of rocks
C     
Bury me where the grass is green 
          F           G
And the gates are shining...



Chorus III:
C    G           F
Oh honey when I die
C
Give me a bed of roses 
G              F
Where I could lie
C                         G             F
I'm gonna use up all the money that I saved
C             F               G            
'Coz I dont wanna lie in a poor man's...


C    G           F
Oh honey when I die
C
Give me a bed of roses 
G              F
Where I could lie
C                        G             F 
I'm gonna use up all the money that I saved
C             G              F(faded strumming)      then Am(softly)
'Coz I dont wanna lie in a poor man's grave...
