Neon Tombstone

Capo on 3rd fret
	  		 
.  The opening melodica solo is in G, but the chords below start from where the guitar comes in. 
The lyrics are spaced out from the left margin to indicate that the chords above them are played before the 
lyric is sung.  I've spaced the different sections differently to indicate how long it is between when the 
chord is played and the lyric is sung, relative to the other stanzas.  For the exact timing, listen to the 
song. Enjoy! 

Intro: C G C G 

verse 1: 

C                       G 
     I see the backbone of a thin man 

C                           G 
     Ribs comin' out of his chest 

C                                    G 
     He?s got the same troubles as a tin man 

C                         D 
     His heart is a rusted mess 


Build Up 1: 

Em 
   He keeps chasin' those bombshells 

A 
   With the painted on smiles 

Em                             A            D 
   But they don't give him the time of day 

       C                         Am          D7       
   And that's the fool reason he cries...     


Chorus 1: 

G                                  D 
When I die I wanna be sent back to try try again 

                                   G         G7 
When I die I wanna be sent back to try try again 

C                              G B Em 
I?m not ready to let go of the pain 

A7                          C      G           C         G   C   G 
I?m not ready for heaven so let me off of this train 


verse 2: 

C                         G 
     Says he wants a neon tombstone 

C                          G 
     When it's his time to go 

C                            G 
     Says he'd hate to be forgotten 

C                      D   
     When he's six feet below 


Build Up 2: 

Em 
   And if you try to love him 

A 
   He won't stay 

Em                       A      D 
   Likes his love from a distance 

   C                   Am       D7 
   He?ll just push you away... 


Chorus 2: 

G                                  D 
When I die I wanna be sent back to try try again 

                                   G         G7 
When I die I wanna be sent back to try try again 

C                              G B Em 
I?m not ready to let go of the pain 

A7                          C      G           Am       Em   Am   Em   Am   D7 
I?m not ready for heaven so let me off of this train 


Brief Melodica interlude 


Final Chorus: 

G                                  D 
When I die I wanna be sent back to try try again 

                                   G         G7 
When I die I wanna be sent back to try try again 

C                              G B Em 
I?m not ready to let go of the pain 

A7                          C      G           C         G 
I?m not ready for heaven so let me off of this train 

                   C        G 
Let me off of this train 

C                                                        G 
I'm not ready for heaven so let me off of this train
