Intro: Gbm

Verse:
Gbm                      Db
It was the coldest night of the year,
E                         B
Snow-covered street lamps and Belvedere,
Gbm
The moon was just a sliver,
Db
The light was fading,
E
The war was on its way,
B
And we were waiting,


D             Db      
You asked me how long I'd stay by your side,
E                D
So I answered with only just one reply,

Chorus:
Gbm               D
Till the casket drops,
          B    Db
Till my dying day,
Gbm                  D
Till my heartbeat stops,
          B         Db
Till my legs just break,
Gbm            D
Whoa, oh, whoa,
       B       Db
whoa, whoa, oh,
Gbm          D
Whoa, whoa, oh,
Db
Till the casket drops,

Verse:
Gbm                        Db
A house made out of glass will surely shatter,
E                         B
So we built a fortress of red bricks and ladders,
Gbm
The ground, it started shaking,
Db
The bombs are falling,
E
We could've walked away,
B
We had a warning,


D                      Db
You asked me how long I'd stay by your side,
E                    D
So I answered with only just one reply,

Chorus:
Gbm               D
Till the casket drops,
          B    Db
Till my dying day,
Gbm                  D
Till my heartbeat stops,
          B         Db
Till my legs just break,
Gbm            D
Whoa, oh, whoa,
       B       Db
whoa, whoa, oh,
Gbm          D
Whoa, whoa, oh,
Db
Till the casket drops,


Gbm
So lay your burden down, baby,
E
Lead me out the door,
B
We can't escape this ricochet,
Db
I'm ready for this war,


Gbm
So lay your burden down, baby,
E
Lead me out the door,
B
We can't escape this ricochet,
Db
I'm ready for this war,


Gbm               D
Till the casket drops,
          B    Db
Till my dying day,
Gbm                  D
Till my heartbeat stops,
          B         Db
Till my legs just break,
Gbm               D
Till the casket drops,
          B    Db
Till my dying day,
Gbm                  D
Till my heartbeat stops,
          B         Db
Till my legs just break,
Gbm            D
Whoa, oh, whoa,
       B       Db
whoa, whoa, oh,
Gbm          D
Whoa, whoa, oh,
Db                      Gbm
Till the casket drops
