Am                                      Dm
I tried to kill the pain, I bought some wine and hopped a train
Am                   Em              Am
Its easier than just waitin round to die

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. the tuning is dropped one and a half steps down from standard. unless there is another version that I don't have.

On a live version on youtube the acoustic guitar has a capo on 4. What version are you referring to?
