G
And if your heart stops beating
D
I'll be here wondering
         Em              C
Did you get what you deserve?
                    G
The ending of your life and if you get to heaven
D
I'll be here waiting, babe
         Em                   C
Did you get what you deserve?
                    Am
The end, and if your life wont wait
          C           D
Then your heart can't take this


 G                     D
Have you heard the news that you're dead?
  C
No one ever had much nice to say
       D                    D7
I think they never liked you anyway
 G                    D
Oh take me from the hospital bed
     C
Wouldn't it be grand? It ain't exactly what you planned.
      D
And wouldn't it be great
   Dsus2      G
If we were dead?
     G
Ohh dead.


G
Tongue-tied and oh so squeamish
D
You never fell in love
     Em                    C
Did you get what you deserve?


                   G
The ending of your life
               G
And if you get to heaven
     D
I'll be here waiting, babe
     Em                 C
Did you get what you deserve?
                         Am
The end, and if your life won't wait
         C            D
Then your heart can't take this


 G                 D
Have you heard the news that you're dead?
  C
No one ever had much nice to say
       D               D7
I think they never liked you anyway
 G                    D
Oh take me from the hospital bed
     C
Wouldn't it be grand to take a pistol by the hand?
          D
And wouldn't it be great
   Dsus2
If we were dead?

Bridge:
 Am                    C
And in my honest observation
              Am
During this operation
                 C   G            D
Found a complication in your heart
                 Am          C         G         D
So long, 'cause now you've got -now you've got-
          Em
Maybe just 2 weeks to live
              Em                         D
Is that the most the both of you can give?

Then why am I dead?
G

    For the final DEAD! you have to do a single down strum and mute it right after. Just something I like to do and personally I think its sounds great when you do it like that.
