Intro: Eb, G, Cm, Bb, Ab, Bb, Eb

Verse:
Eb        G               Cm      Bb
If I get murdered in the city,
Ab        Bb               Eb
don't go revengin' in my name.
Eb          G                 Cm       Bb
One person dead from such is plenty,
Ab          Bb             Eb
no need to go get locked away
Cm     Bb          Eb
When I leave your arms,
Cm              Bb       Eb
the things that I think of
Cm         Bb   Ab           Eb
No need to get over-alarmed
Cm  Bb      Eb
I'm coming home.

Interlude: Eb, G, Cm, Bb, Ab, Bb, Eb


Eb        G                Cm      Bb
I wonder which brother is better
Ab             Bb                Eb
Which one our parents love the most.
Eb          G              Cm        Bb
I sure did get in lots of trouble,
Ab            Bb             Eb
they seem to let the other go.
Cm          Bb                Eb
a tear fell from my father's eyes,
Cm         Bb                 Eb
I wondered what my dad would say.
Cm      Bb
He Said I love you, 
        Ab            Eb
but i'm proud of you both,
Cm         Bb         Eb
In so many different ways.

Interlude: Eb, G, Cm, Bb, Ab, Bb, Eb


Eb        G               Cm     Bb
If I get murdered in the city,
Ab           Bb            Eb
go read the letter in my desk.
Eb            G           Cm           Bb
Don't bother with all my belongings,
Ab       Bb               Eb
but pay attention to my list.
Cm           Bb                   Eb
Make sure my sister knows I love her,
Cm           Bb                Eb
make sure my mother knows the same
Cm     Bb                  Ab             Eb        
Always remember there was nothing worth sharing
         Cm               Bb         Eb
like the love that let us share our name. 
Cm     Bb                  Ab            Eb        
Always remember there was nothing worth sharing
         Cm               Bb         Eb
like the love that let us share our name.
