Learning How to Die

So this is one of Jon Foreman's best and you can get people to cry playing this beautiful song. 
I watched videos of him playing this song to make sure I got it right. 

It's very simple so have a ton of fun playing it!

Chords used:


        D       G       Em      A7      B       B/G     C

The little bass note walkdown that makes this song special is simply:
    
    G  F#   E
e|--------------|
B|--------------|
G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|--------------|
E|--3---2---0---|


To add that last layer of finesse, make sure you hit the root of each chord before
strumming the whole chord...mmmmmmm delicious. 

CAPO 5

Intro:
D   G   (G - F# - E walkdown)   Em   A7  (x2)


Verse 1:
D          G    
I'm gonna miss you
Em         A7                   D       G (G-F#-E walkdown) Em  A7
I'm gonna miss you when you're gone
D             G
She says, "I love you
Em         A7                   D       G (G-F#-E walkdown) Em  A7
I'm gonna miss hearing your songs"


Prechorus:
                B
And I said, "Please
        B/G           B
Don't talk about the end
        B/G             B          B/G
Don't talk about how every living thing
        B
Goes away"
             A7
She said, "Friend...


Chorus:
        D
All along
                G               Em
Thought I was learning how to take
        A7              D
How to bend not how to break
        G               Em
How to live not how to cry 
            Em          A7            C
But really I've been learning how to die
             G             D    G (G-F#-E walkdown) Em  A7
I've been learning how to die"


Interlude: 
D   G  (G - F# - E walkdown)  Em   A7


Verse 2:
D         G (G-F#-E walkdown) 
Hey everyone
      A7            D   G (G-F#-E walkdown) Em  A7
I've got nowhere to go
     D          G (G-F#-E walkdown) Em 
The grave is lazy
        A7               D      G (G-F#-E walkdown) Em  A7
And he takes our bodies slow


Prechorus:
                B
And I said, "Please
        B/G           B
Don't talk about the end
        B/G             B          B/G
Don't talk about how every living thing
        B
Goes away"
             A7
She said, "Friend...


Chorus:
D
All along
                G               Em
Thought I was learning how to take
        A7              D
How to bend not how to break
        G               Em
How to live not how to cry 
            Em          A7            C
but really I've been learning how to die
             G             D    G  Em  A7
I've been learning how to die
D   G    Em 
Die
A7              C          D
I've been learning how to die"


God bless,

I should mention that the G - F# - E walkdown refers to notes, not chords.
