[Intro]

(D) (x4) bar's


[Verse 1]

  Bm
If I could kill a word and watch it die
   D
I'd poison "never," shoot "goodbye"
  Bm                                   D
And beat "regret" when I felt I had the nerve
    Bm
Yeah, I'd pound "fear" to a pile of sand
      D
Choke "lonely" out with my bare hands
   Bm                                  D
And I'd hang "hate" so that it can't be heard
  Bm      G                   D
If I could only kill a word 

Bm
I'd take "brokeness" out back
   D
And break "heartbreak," stand there and laugh
     Bm                                      D
Right in its face while shootin' it the bird 
   Bm
I'd put "upset" down in its place
   D
I'd squeeze the life out of "disgrace"
   Bm                                  D
Lay "over" under six cold feet of dirt 
  Bm      G                  D
If I could only kill a word 


[Chorus]

              Bm
Give me sticks, give me stones
       G
Bend my body, break my bones
   D                                  A
Use staff and rod to turn me black and blue
         Bm
'Cause you can't unhear, you can't unsay
      G
But if it were up to me to change
D                                                 A
I'd turn "lies" and "hate" to "love" and "truth" 
  Bm      G                 D
If I could only kill a word 


[Verse 2]

Bm
I'd knock out "temptation"'s teeth
   D
I'd sever "evil," let it bleed
   Bm                                            D
Then light up "wicked," stand and watch it burn 
Bm
I'd take "vice" and I'd take "vile"
D
Tie 'em up there with "hostile"
Bm                                         D
Hang 'em high and leave 'em for the birds 
  Bm      G                 D
If I could only kill a word 


[Chorus]

                 Bm
So give me sticks, give me stones
       G
Bend my body, break my bones
   D                                  A
Use staff and rod to turn me black and blue
          Bm
'Cause you can't unhear, you can't unsay
      G
But if it were up to me to change
D                                                 A
I'd turn "lies" and "hate" to "love" and "truth" 
  Bm      G                  D
If I could only kill a word 
  Bm      G                      D
If I could only --- kill a word

Good tab overall, but does anyone know the walk down he does going into the last line of the chorus? Thanks!

If you slide 2nd to 4th on the D string and then back to 2nd and play the open D, sounds like his basic little breakdown riff
