The 59 Sound

	  		
Intro:  
C - C - Fmaj7 - Fmaj7 - Am - G - Fmaj7 - Fmaj7 
x2 

          Am                             Em 
Well, I wonder which song they're gonna play when we go. 
                Am                                     Fmaj7 
I hope it's something quiet and minor and peaceful and slow. 
         Am                                 Em 
When we float out into the ether, into the Everlasting Arms, 
            Am                                    Fmaj7 
I hope we don't hear Marley's chains we forged in life. 

            Am             F              C          G 
'Cause the chains I been hearing now for most of my life, 
      Am             F              C          G 
The chains I been hearing now for most of my life. 

                  C                           Fmaj7 
Did you hear the '59 Sound coming through on grandmother's radio? 
                 Am               G                  Fmaj7 
Did you hear the rattling chains.... in the hospital walls? 
                  C                                 Fmaj7 
Did you hear the old gospel choir when they came to carry you over? 
                 Am             G        Fmaj7 
Did you hear your favorite song one last time? 

         Am                            Em  
And I wonder were you scared when the metal hit the glass? 
             Am                                                    Fmaj7 
See, I was playing a show down the road when your spirit left your body. 
          Am                              Em 
And they told me on the front lawn. I'm sorry I couldn't go, 
        Am                                                     Fmaj7 
But I still know the song and the words and her name and the reasons. 


       Am                  F           C       G 
And I know 'cause we were kids and we used to hang 
   Am                  F           C       G 
I know 'cause we were kids and we used to hang 

                  C                           Fmaj7 
Did you hear the '59 Sound coming through on grandmother's radio? 
                 Am               G                   Fmaj7 
Did you hear the rattling chains..... in the hospital walls? 
                  C                                 Fmaj7 
Did you hear the old gospel choir when they came to carry you over? 
                     Am          G           Fmaj7 
Did you hear your favorite song.... one last time? 

      Am    F    C    G 
Young boys,  
       Am    F    C    G 
Young girls,             x4 

 Am                F        C        G 
Ain't supposed to die on a Saturday night, 
 Am                F        C        G 
Ain't supposed to die on a Saturday night, 
 Am                F        C        G 
Ain't supposed to die on a Saturday night, 
 Am                F        C        G 
Ain't supposed to die on a Saturday night, 

                  C                           Fmaj7 
Did you hear the '59 Sound coming through on grandmother's radio? 
                 Am               G                   Fmaj7 
Did you hear the rattling chains..... in the hospital walls? 
                  C                                 Fmaj7 
Did you hear the old gospel choir when they came to carry you over? 
                     Am          G           Fmaj7 
Did you hear your favorite song.... one last time? 


       Am    F    C    G 
Young boys,  
       Am    F    C    G 
Young girls,              

       Am    F    C    G 
Young boys,  
       Am    F    C    G 
Young girls. 

Outro:

Seeing as almost all of Gaslight's songs from this album are in D tuning, I  
was pretty sure I could make it work for this song too. I took a look at a  
few live videos, and this is definitely what he's playing, especially in the  
intro. Hope you all enjoy it!
