Intro:

D  E  Gbm
D  E  Gbm

Verse:
D                    E                      Gbm  
  Its the third of October, you should come over
Gbm                             D
Best laid plans are not sober
                  E                          Gbm
And maybe not the way we thought we planned
Gbm
Both of us will take this hand
D                E                   Gbm
For a couple of days then we'll disappear
Gbm                                          D
We don't have to talk of where we go from here
    E            Gbm       
Oh, my dearly departed,
  D  E            Gbm
Mmm, my dearly departed

Pre-Chorus:
    D
One final shoulder
D                       Gbm
Here before they're none
E                    D
And then there were none

Chorus:
     Gbm              A         D
This last call could be all we can do for each other
Gbm          A          D
Embrace for a dear old friend
D
Bring wine to bed
     Gbm E A       D             Gbm
We'll  toast what could have been
E            D
My dearly departed
  Gbm E            D
To,   my dearly departed

Verse:
D                   E
I don't know how to mend it
                  Gbm
But this chapter ended
Gbm                                    D
When all of my plans have depended on you
               E                        Gbm
But at least tonight we'll still pretend
Gbm                                        D
Hold each other close like its not the end
                       E                              Gbm
And you can send me balloons, and we can laugh at the doom
Gbm                                               D
We both thought of that doesn't it say something to
   E           Gbm
Oh my dearly departed,
  D  E            Gbm
Ohh, my dearly departed

Pre-Chorus:
D
One final shoulder
D                   Gbm
Here before we're none
  E                 D 
Until -there- are none

Chorus:
     Gbm              A         D
This last call could be all we can do for each other
Gbm          A          D
Embrace for a dear old friend
D
Bring wine to bed
     Gbm E A       D             Gbm
We'll  toast what could have been
E            D
My dearly departed
  Gbm E           D
To   my dearly departed

Bridge:
      Gbm              A
Every masterpiece I'd write again
       E
You'll always be my porcelain
  Gbm                     A
I crossed my heart but I stuttered too
   E
So truth or dare was I good to you?
        Gbm                A
Haven't had enough of you all to myself
      E
Still right beside you in sickness and health
   Gbm         E              D
Forever after you will be my home
                       Gbm  E   D
And there's no place like home

Outro:
D                 E                               Gbm
We never sent the cards, they're all still on the table
                                      D
Wanna throw them out but I'm just not able
E            Gbm      D
My dearly departed
E               Gbm      A      D
   My dearly departed
D           Gbm         A          D
Toast what could what could have been
D           Gbm         A          D
Toast what could what could have been
D                Gbm
Dear old friend, 
     A          D
What could have been
D           Gbm
Old friend
A            D
My dearly departed
D           Gbm
Toast what could,
A            D
My dearly departed
D           Gbm
Toast what could,
A            D
My dearly departed
D           Gbm         A          D
Toast what could what could have been
D
Dear old friend
