Intro:
    Dm  F  Bb  F  C  
    Dm  F  C
    Dm  F  A  Dm  C  Bb  Bbm  F  

Verse:
F  
Love of mine
        Dm  
someday you will die,
            Bb 
but I'll be close behind;
             F            C
I'll follow you into the dark.


   F  
No blinding light
              Dm  
or tunnels to gates of white,
               Bb
just our hands clasped so tight
         F                  C
waiting for the hint of a spark. 

Chorus:      
     Dm               F              Bb             F    C        
If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied,
  Dm           F              C
illuminate the noes on their vacancy signs.
     Dm              F                 A      Dm     C    
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
     Bb           Bbm           F  
then I'll follow you into the dark.

Verse:     
   F  
In Catholic school,
              Dm  
as vicious as Roman rule,
          Bb 
I got my knuckles bruised 
     F        C
by a lady in black.


      F  
And I held my tongue 
       Dm  
as she told me "Son, 
            Bb
fear is the heart of love".
     F          C
So I never went back.

Chorus:
     Dm               F              Bb             F    C        
If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied,
  Dm           F              C
illuminate the noes on their vacancy signs.
     Dm              F                 A      Dm     C    
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
     Bb           Bbm           F  
then I'll follow you into the dark.

Verse:
F  
You and me
                Dm  
have seen everything to see
                Bb
from Bangkok to Calgary, 
        F             C
and the soles of your shoes

 
    F  
are all worn down.
             Dm  
The time for sleep is now
                    Bb
but it's nothing to cry about  
             F               C      
'cause we'll hold each other soon
       Dm          Bb
in the blackest of rooms.

Chorus:     
     Dm               F              Bb             F    C        
If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied,
  Dm           F              C
illuminate the noes on their vacancy signs.
     Dm              F                 A      Dm     C    
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
     Bb           Bbm           F       C    Dm 
Then I'll follow you into the dark
     Bb           Bbm           F    
Then I'll follow you into the dark

    My older brother introduced me to this song! I LOVE this song and can’t stop playing it on my Ukulele!♥️

  2. emileigh

    -5 with capo on the first fret works best for me!!

  3. omg this is such an awesome song!!!! I love it, and teh tabs a really simple and easy (i’m a beginner so this is great) thanks!

  4. +2 is easier for beginners and it sounds really good on a soprano uke

  5. Eliegriggs6

    In Revolutionary School
    As vicious as Musain rule
    I gouty feelings bruised
    by the leader in red
    and i propped the bar
    as he told me “R, you’re a good-for-nothing Fool,”
    and I heard every word that he said

  6. For those who are wondering, the picking pattern used in the actual song is you pluck the C string and then strum up once and down once for each chord

  7. This is great and amazingly easy! Don’t change a thing!!

  8. c am f c g
    am c f c e am c g
    am c f am dm 3111 c

    for baritone

  9. This song is one of my favorite songs, thanks

  10. !#*$!!!!!

  11. stormpilot

    if you are playing -5 (it’s the easiest) you can substitute the E for an F in the chorus. it’s almost undetectable. Just a tip if E is too hard ( I know it is for me)
