Track 7

This really easy to play-it consists of only two chords:

  Dm				A
e ---5---           e ---5---|
B ---6---           B ---5---|	   Rhythm = Straight up and down
G ---7---           G ---6---|			strum, emphasizing
D ---7---           D ---7---|			first of every four
A ---5---           A ---7---|		      downstrokes
E ---5---           E ---5---|		      3 measures Dm
						      3 measures A
							1 measure  Dm
[Dm]In the afterlife
You could be headed for the [A]serious strife
Now you make the scene all day		       < Chorus
But tomorrow there'll be [Dm]Hell to pay

Intro       Dm      A

Chorus x 2

People listen attentively
I mean about future calamity[A]
I used to think the idea was obsolete
Until I heard the old man stamping his [Dm]feet

Chorus						     |-------------|
						           |             |
Instrumental					     |   Hi        |
							     |      Mom    |
This is a [Dm]place where eternally		     |             |
Fire is applied to the body[A]		     |-------------|
Teeth are extruded and bones are ground
Then baked into cakes which are passed around[Dm]



[Dm]Beauty, talent, fame, money, refinement
Top skill and [A]brain
But all the things you try to hide
Will be revealed on the [Dm]other side.



[Dm]Now the D and the A and the M and the N
and the A and the T and the [A]I-O-N		X2
Lose your face, lose your name
Then get fitted for a [Dm]suit of flame

This tab is an octave too low. It's in the key of Em, not Dm.

Em B
e ---7--- e ---7---|
B ---8--- B ---7---|
G ---9--- G ---8---|
D ---9--- D ---9---|
A ---7--- A ---9---|
E ---7--- E ---7---|
