Murdered In The City

Not sure quite how it's picked out, but this is the chords.  I personally just play it 

Capo 2nd Fret(Live version from Youtube)
The album version uses a capo on the 3rd fret.

C         G           Am
If I get murdered in the city
F         G               C
don't go revenging in my name
C          G                 Am
One person dead from such is plenty
F          G             C
No need to go get locked away.
Am       G         C
When I leave your arms
Am      G              C
the things that I think of
Am      G        F       C
No need to get overalarmed
Am       G
I'm coming home

***Interlude goes something like***

C G Am F C G C

***Just like the beginning verse but C and G reversed.***

C        G             Am        G
I wonder which sibling is better
F       G                    C
which one our parents loved the most
C          G              Am      G
I sure did get in lots of trouble
F         G              C
They seemed to let the other go
Am             G            C
A tear fell from my fathers eye
Am            G              C
I wondered what my dad would say
***Careful here it changes up a bit***
Am          G        C                F
He'd say I love you and I'm proud of you both
C     G               C
In so many different ways

***Interlude again minus the C cause we just played one***

G Am F C G C

C        G              Am
If I get murdered in the city
F       G                 C
Go read the letter in my desk
C            G                 Am     G
Don't bother with all my belongings
F        G                 C
But pay attention to the list
Am              G           C
Make sure my sister knows I loved her
Am           G                C
Make sure my mother knows the same

Am         G                F          C     
Always remember there was nothing worth sharing
          Am                 G           C
like the love that let us share our name.

**last lines twice***

Hey, great tab, although I think the capo is on the 3rd fret instead of the second. Other than that the chords and lyrics match up perfectly. Good job

capo is on the third fret for this song. also, for the last two lines of the song, he throws in a G chord after Am and before the C.

like the love (C) that let us (brief pause - G) share our name (A)

aside from that, nice job

Actually madefortvmovie is 100% correct the capo is on third. And when the part comes ''He said I love you and Im proud of you both in so many different ways.'' It doesnt really change up. It keeps the same if you have heard the song. All he does is sing a bit louder and add a bit more flare on the strum. But over all I will give a 4/5.
