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

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

george <3

isabella

yes the George Blagden version

rreekkaa12

I was waiting to see a comment, you definitely did not disappoint ;)

ukucat

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

Juliahess96

Thank you! This helped so much!

47saturn74

D – D U – U D U (repeat) is the strumming pattern I use

yakinaboat

My dog just died. This song makes me think of her

peanutbutterandjelly

I am sorry, hope the song makes you feel any better. I love this song when I just want something mellow.

Your friend

oh my god when my dog was in the trunk of the car almost dead we were listening to this song and it makes my cry every time. I relate so much. Even though it can be hard to lose somebody or a pet your lost loved ones are always with you and still love you. This song makes me think of her every time. I hope you read this and remember that it’s ok and you can always be reminded that she loves you and will never forget and the same for you.

Sniff_Snuff

I think that -5 sounds the best

WaffleLovesAri

I agree! Easy and beautiful but I don’t like the transition to Fm so I use Cbmaj instead

Doggo The Pitbull

I love death cab. They get me in the feels¬

same

no name

I changed E to Cmaj7. It doesn’t the worst and so I went with it.

Kellin

On a different page it says to play C7 after C in the “vacancy signs” part.. and it sounds a bit better to me when C7 is added sooo I thought why not telling more people. :3

AppleTurtle365

I’m playing on +4. Does anyone know an easier note for E?

Alexa

I’m playing on +4. Does anyone know an easier note for E?

Allison

Muffle the second string from the left. It’s easier than reaching that fourth finger and it sounds better, though relatively the same.

Cora Benson

My parents loved Death Cab For Cutie, I never really thought much of it until I heard this song, now I’m hooked

d4n

one of my favorites literally spot on
