Key: A major

	A   F#m   A   F#m

      A			F#m
	It's so easy to forgo
      A			   F#m
	It's so hard to forget

	It's so hard for to realize
      D			  Bm	E

	And all that I hoped for is
      D		   A		  E
	Long dead gone - alright


      A		     F#m
	So how can I sleep
      A		       F#m
	In this memory bed
      A			   F#m
	When I feel like a grave
      D			  Bm	    E
	With a tomb for a bed head
      A			   F#m
	With your name and my  name
      A			     D
	Carved deep in the stone

      A				   F#m
	Of the truth that we would both
      D			     Bm   E
	Would've rather kept hid
      A			      F#m
	Better to live a lie
      A				  D

Chords
~~~~~~
	As this version doesn't specify which chord fingerings should be
	used, I haven't included a chord chart.  If you want to know the
	fingerings, see the other posting of this  song  with  specified
	chords.  N.B. F#major is not written as F#  purely  to  make  it
	clear that it isn't F#m.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notes
~~~~~
     1.	Learn the song by playing along to the album track.

     2. Feel free to use different versions of the same chord or  slighlty
	different varieties of the same one to  colour  your  music.   For
	example, I use a Dsus2 to link the D and Bm chords in the 4th line
	of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th sections.

     3. If you don't want to use these linking chords (such as the Dsus2's
	all through this CRD, you needn't).

     4. If you're new to barre chords, and would rather stick to open ones
	you could transpose the tune to the key of G major, which involves
	shifting all chords done by a tone:
		  This version:	  Transposed to G major:
			A		G
			F#m		Em
			D		C
			Bm		Am
			C# & C#7	B7 should be okay
			F#major		Emajor (just plain E)
	If you want to do this and have a capo, putting it on the 2nd fret
	will get you in tune with the album track.

     6.	A big thankyou (THANKYOU) to Alan Pulliam for supplying the  lyrics
	to Long Dead Gone and Backing Out.   They made my job a lot easier.

     7. Very important this:  Have Fun.

If you don't want to use these linking chords (such as the Dsus2's all through this CRD, you needn't). 4. Don't worry too much about whether you use the open or barred versions of the various chords. I think these are the ones used on the twangy guitar in the song (right-hand speaker in stereo), but the difference between one and another is only slight, and you may find it easier to play a certain sequence. 5. If you're new to barre chords, and would rather stick to open ones you could transpose the tune to the key of G major, which involves shifting all chords done by a tone: This version: Transposed to G major: A G F#m Em D C Bm Am Dsus2 forget it, just play C C# & C#7 B7 should be okay F#major Emajor (just plain E) If you want to do this and have a capo, putting it on the 2nd fret will get you in tune with the album track. 6. A big thankyou (THANKYOU) to Alan Pulliam for supplying the lyrics to Long Dead Gone and Backing Out. They made my job a lot easier. 7.
