Verse:


G         Dsus4   D                   Em7 Em    Cadd9        
There's a funeral procession on the highway,
G       Dsus4  D        Em7 Em    Cadd9
Traffic screeches to a halt.
G              Dsus4 D          Em7 Em    Cadd9
There's people searching for a better way,
              G   Dsus4 D Em7  Cadd9
To live their lives.
G      Dsus4 D                   Em7 Em    Cadd9      
Johnny lived a good life, you'll hear them say
G           Dsus4 D          Em7 Em    Cadd9
As tears of sadness soak the ground.
G          Dsus4 D            Em7 Em    Cadd9
The reaper crept in, took his breath away,
                     G   Dsus4 D Em7 Em Cadd9
In the middle of the night.

[Chorus:]
Em                               C
We celebrate the lives of the dead,
                       G                           D/F
It's like a man's best party, only happens when he dies.
Em                                C
We gather 'round to pay our respects,
            G                                  D/F
While their souls are still searching for the light,
                           (BACK TO VERSE CHORDS)
Searching for the light.

Verse:

G               Dsus4 D           Em7 Em    Cadd9
So please don't come to me on my dying day,
G          Dsus4 D Em7 Cadd9
Just let me go in peace.
G            Dsus4 D        Em7 Em    Cadd9
With all the things that I forgot to say,
                       G  Dsus4 D Em7 Em Cadd9
Still racing through my mind.
G           Dsus4 D            Em7 Em    Cadd9
And don't you bury me six feet under ground,
G         Dsus4 D      Em7 Em    Cadd9
Just burn my body in a box.
G          Dsus4 D Em7 Em        Cadd9
And let my ashes blow with the wind,
             G  Dsus4 D Em7 Em Cadd9
Out into the night.... sky.


Chorus:

Em                               C
We celebrate the lives of the dead,
                       G                           D/F
It's like a man's best party, only happens when he dies.
Em                                C
We gather 'round to pay our respects,
            G                                  D/F
While their souls are still searching for the light,
                           (BACK TO VERSE CHORDS)
Searching for the light.
