Intro:
D Am7 Em G (x2)

Verse 1:
D       Am7                 Em              G
Live or die before I get it done will you decide? 
D       Am7                      Em              G
Take my words and turn them into signs they will survive 
          D    Am7       Em            G
Because a long time ago I knew not to deprive, 

Verse 2:
     D        Am7                       Em                  G
It's safe out there and now you’re everywhere just like the sky
    D     Am7                          Em                G
And you I love you, you are the love supreme you are the ride 
            D    Am7                     Em                G
And when you hear this you know it's your jam it's your goodbye

Chorus:
G
Like I said 
             C
You know I'm almost dead
              Em
You know I'm almost gone 
             G             
And when the drummer drums
           C
He's gonna play my song 
         Em
To carry me along 

G
Like I said 
             C
You know I'm almost dead
              Em
You know I'm almost gone 
             G             
And when the moment comes
         C
To ferry me away 
           Em
To where we all belong

Verse 3:
D      Am7                      Em                 G
We all cross when we’re feeling lost it's just the time 
      D     Am7                  Em            G
Could Terry cry the day her lover died she recognized 
            D    Am7               Em               G
Because you gave her a life of real love it's no surprise 
    D          Am7                    Em                 G
The nights are long but the years are short when you’re alive
D        Am7                 Em            G
Way back when will never be again it was a time
           D     Am7               Em               G
It's gonna catch you so glad I met you to walk the line

Chorus:
G
Like I said 
             C
You know I'm almost dead
              Em
You know I'm almost gone 
             G             
And when the drummer drums
           C
He's gonna play my song 
         Em
To carry me along 

G
Like I said 
             C
You know I'm almost dead
              Em
You know I'm almost gone 
             G             
And when the moment comes
         C
To ferry me away 
           Em
To where we all belong

             G             
And when the drummer drums
           C
He's gonna play my song 
         Em
To carry me along

Like I said 
             C
You know I'm almost dead
              Em

To ferry me away 
           Em
To where we all belong

Outro:
G                        C                    Em
Let me live so when it’s time to die even the reaper cries
G                       C                     Em
Let me die so when it's time to leave another sun will rise
