Vital signs - Frank Tuner
Tabbed by Sean O'Reilly
This may not be 100% but seeing as there's no other tab available for this song,
it'll have to do. It'll give you a rough guide to it anyway.

Standard Tuning
EADGBe

The main riff is based around a B5 chord I think
e |--------------------|
B |--------------------|
G |--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-|
D |--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-2-|
A |--2-2-0-2-2-2-2-0-2-|
E |--------------------|

The high e and b strings are left open for the F#, G#m and A, this is done by playing 
route of the chord with your thumb.
     F#   G#m   A
e |--0----0----0---|
B |--0----0----0---|
G |--3----4----6---|
D |--4----6----7---|
A |--4----6----7---|
E |--2----4----5---|


Intro: B5(Main Riff)


Verse 1:
B5
This country is my canvas
I leave paint trails as I go.
               E
I'm painting a picture
                  F#                   B5
That you can only see from outer space.

B5
My bedroom is your sofa,
I take my breakfast on the train.
                  E                F#                   
Riff) G#m
I'm tired and I'm dirty, and not a second goes to waste.

Chorus:
                       A                            E
I'll be dead but never dying, and I say that with a smile
                    G#m               F#
It's just my way of trying to be aliive.


Verse 3:
B5
Well I'll never get to grey hair
And I'll never be in the black,
               E            F#                    B5(Main Riff)
But I can tell stories that most can hardly dream.

B5
Dreaming is a luxury,
Like stopping-staring and beauty sleep.
                   E
I'll stop when I'm finished,
    F#                     B5(Main Riff) G#m
And sleep is for the weak.


Chorus:
                       A                            E
I'll be dead but never dying, and I say that with a smile
                    G#m               F#
It's just my way of trying to be aliive.
                 A                             E
Heaven's in the half light, and that's where I reside,
         G#m
I got a whiskey and a wry smile
                B
I check my vital signs.

Bridge:
             F#
And when I'm gone,
                                   A
The world revolves, and life goes on,
So mark no grave,
A     G#m  F#    A
Forget my name.
A       G#m  F#(Let Ring)
If the song remains

And everybody's got a drink and a smile,
                                F#
Well, that's just fine by me yeah.

Chorus:
                 A                             E
Heaven's in the half-light, and that's where I reside,
         G#m
I got a whiskey and a wry smile
                F#
I check my vital signs.

                       A                            E
I'll be dead but never dying, and I say that with a smile
                    G#m               B5(Back to main riff)
It's just my way of trying to be aliive.
