Death Cab for Cutie
"I Will Follow You into the Dark"
from Plans



    

capo 5th fret
F and Fm are barred throughout
I don't barre the G.
This maybe redundant but the /'s indicate bass notes.
There's a chord diagram at the bottom now.

Intro:

Am  C  F  C  G/B

Am  C  G

Am  C  E  Am  G  F  Fm  C/G




    


1st Verse:

C/G
Love of mine
        Am/E

someday you will die,
            F 
but I'll be close behind;
             C            G

I'll follow you into the dark.

   C/G
No blinding light
              Am/E

or tunnels to gates of white,
               F

just our hands clasped so tight
         C                  G

waiting for the hint of a spark. 


Chorus: 
     
     Am               C              F             C    G/B      
If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied,
  Am           C              G

illuminate the noes on their vacancy signs.
     Am              C                 E      Am     G    
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
     F           Fm           C/G

then I'll follow you into the dark.


2nd Verse:(same chords)
     
   C/G
In Catholic school,
              Am/E

as vicious as Roman rule,
          F 
I got my knuckles bruised 
     C        G

by a lady in black.

      C/G
And I held my tongue 
       Am/E

as she told me "Son, 
            F

fear is the heart of love".
     C          G

So I never went back.


Chorus:(same chords)
     
     Am               C              F             C    G/B      
If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied,
  Am           C              G

illuminate the noes on their vacancy signs.
     Am              C                 E      Am     G    
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
     F           Fm           C/G

then I'll follow you into the dark.


3rd Verse:(tiny change)

C/G
You and me
                Am/E

have seen everything to see
                F

from Bangkok to Calgary, 
        C             G

and the soles of your shoes
 
    C/G
are all worn down.
             Am/E

The time for sleep is now
                    F

but it's nothing to cry about  
             C               G      
'cause we'll hold each other soon
       Am          F

in the blackest of rooms.


Chorus:
     
     Am               C              F             C    G/B      
If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied,
  Am           C              G

illuminate the noes on their vacancy signs.
     Am              C                 E      Am     G    
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
     F           Fm           C       G/B  Am 
Then I'll follow you into the dark
     F           Fm           C    
Then I'll follow you into the dark

Love of mine
Someday you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark

No blinding light
Or tunnels, to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark

[Chorus]
If Heaven and Hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

Catholic school, as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
I held my tongue as she told me, son
Fear is the heart of love, so I never went back

[Chorus]

You and me have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
The soles of your shoes are all worn down
The time for sleep is now
It's nothing to cry about
Cause we'll hold each other soon
The blackest of rooms

[Chorus]

I'll follow you into the dark
