Don’t Let Us Get Sick – WARREN ZEVON – “LIFE’LL KILL YA” – 1999


The weird “Cmajsus2” chord is played x2001x

I pluck the strings individually like he does, rather than strum, it definitely sounds
better that way. Also, when it comes to the Am chord at the end of the third line of the
verse/chorus (i.e “all right?” “the line” and “in time”), he does a little decoration 
phrase where he plucks the last three strings of the Am chord kinda quickly, listen out for
it in the song, it’s a nice touch.

I’m pretty sure it’s all correct here, maybe not exactly how he plays it but it sounds
good, that’s for sure. Another classic by Warren Zevon, enjoy and please leave comments
if you find any mistakes.

[Chorus]
         C
Don't let us get sick
         F              C
Don't let us get old
        C          Cmaj7sus2     Am
Don't let us get stupid, all right?
      F           C
Just make us be brave
      G                  Am
And make us play nice
     F                  G         C
And let us be together tonight


[Verse]
     C
The sky was on fire
            F                   C
When I walked to the mill
     C        Cmaj7sus2         Am
To take up the slack in the line
   F                    C
I thought of my friends
              G                     Am
And the troubles they've had
     F                    G                C
To keep me from thinking of mine


[Chorus]
      C
Don't let us get sick
         F              C
Don't let us get old
        C          Cmaj7sus2     Am
Don't let us get stupid, all right?
       F                 C
Just make us be brave
       G                   Am
And make us play nice
        F                 G         C
And let us be together tonight


[Verse]
     C
The moon has a face
         F                     C
And it smiles on the lake
      C        Cmaj7sus2      Am
And causes the ripples in time
      F          C
I'm lucky to be here
        G             Am
With someone I like
         F                 G         C
Who maketh my spirit to shine


[Chorus]
         C
Don't let us get sick
          F             C
Don't let us get old
        C          Cmaj7sus2     Am
Don't let us get stupid, all right?
       F                C
Just make us be brave
       G                   Am
And make us play nice
       F               G            C
And let us be together tonight
