          Am                             Em
Well, I wonder which song they're gonna play when we go.
                Am                                     Fmaj7
I hope it's something quiet and minor and peaceful and slow.
         Am                                 Em
When we float out into the ether, into the Everlasting Arms,
            Am                                    Fmaj7
I hope we don't hear Marley's chains we forged in life.

            Am             F              C          G
'Cause the chains I been hearing now for most of my life,
      Am             F              C          G
The chains I been hearing now for most of my life.

                  C                           Fmaj7
Did you hear the '59 Sound coming through on grandmother's radio?
                 Am               G                  Fmaj7
Did you hear the rattling chains.... in the hospital walls?
                  C                                 Fmaj7
Did you hear the old gospel choir when they came to carry you over?
                 Am             G        Fmaj7
Did you hear your favorite song one last time?

         Am                            Em 
And I wonder were you scared when the metal hit the glass?
             Am                                                    Fmaj7
See, I was playing a show down the road when your spirit left your body.
          Am                              Em
And they told me on the front lawn. I'm sorry I couldn't go,
        Am                                                     Fmaj7
But I still know the song and the words and her name and the reasons.


       Am                  F           C       G
And I know 'cause we were kids and we used to hang
   Am                  F           C       G
I know 'cause we were kids and we used to hang

Seeing as almost all of Gaslight's songs from this album are in D tuning, I 
was pretty sure I could make it work for this song too. I took a look at a 
few live videos, and this is definitely what he's playing, especially in the 
intro. Hope you all enjoy it!
