VERSE:

           E
I see them rise
     Asus2       E
From beneath the ground
         Asus2             E
Life was lost but now it's found
                Esus2/E5
The ghosts want somethin'

              E
To take their turn
   Asus2            E
To dance around the stone
         Asus2          E
Work the fingers to the bone
           Esus2/E5
Hold on to nothin'

CHORUS:

E           E
Day for the dead,
   Asus2           E
To dance among the living
E           E
Day for the dead
   Asus2           E
To dance among the living

E7  C#m6  Asus2  E
E7  C#m6  Asus2  E

        Asus2  E
We find forgiveness
        Asus2       E
For the wrong we've done
          Asus2        E
Watch the dyin' of the day
        Esus2/E5
Another settin' sun

        Asus2 E
We find redemption
       Asus2      E
In the love we've won
              Asus2 E
Just a little company
          Esus2/E5
Until our work is done

E           E
Day for the dead,
   Asus2           E
To dance among the living
E           E
Day for the dead
   Asus2           E
To dance among the living

Beatboxing/Acapella

Who says you can't go back?
Who says you can't go back,
Back to where you started from? (are you ready?)
Who says you can't go back? (are you ready?)
Who says you can't go back,
Back to where you started from? (are you ready)
Who says you can't go back? (are you ready?)

The bone falls on the river Styx
The man who makes you dead
Coins lay on his eyes
Just to pay your fare

E
Day for the dead
   Asus2           E
To dance among the living

More soloing

REPEAT INTRO RIFF

E           E
Day for the dead,
   Asus2           E
To dance among the living
E           E
Day for the dead,
   Asus2           E
To dance among the living
