This is my very first tab so be easy on me if there are some mistakes.  This is my own 
of Rest in Peace and i think it is quite accurate. Any problems, let me know.

      Em            B

I've died, so many years ago.
    D                A       C         G

But you can make me feel, like it isn't so.
     B               C             Dm              
      A7
And why you come to be with me, i think i finally know.  Mmmmmm
         Em                         B

You're scared, ashamed of what you feel.
    D                A                   C               G

You can't tell the ones you love, you know they couldn't deal.
        B                C           Dm           Em 
     A7
But a whisper in a dead mans ear, doesn't make it real. .......
       Em                      B

Thats great, but i don't wana play.
      D             A            C              G

Cos been with you touches me, more then i can say.
      B              C                Dm      Em
But since i'm only dead to you, i'm sayin stay away!
     D       G       F

And let me rest in peace.
         F       A

Let me rest in peace!
        E

Let me get some sleep!
          F               A

Let me take my love and bury it,
      E               D

in a hole six foot deep!
    F          B                     C              Em
I can lay my body down but i can't find my sweet release!
     D      G   F   A

So let me rest in peace!
      Em                      B

You know, you got a willing slave.
     D                 A

But you just love to play the thought,
  C                G

that you might misbehave.
     B                C

but til you do i'm telling you,
        Dm         Em
stop visiting my grave!
        Dm   G   F    A

And let me rest in peace!
    Em       B

I know, i should go.
           Abm             Cm     C

But i follow you, like a man possessed.
           Abm            Cm        C

Theres a traitor here, beneath my breast.
         Abm                        Cm      C

And it hurts me more, then you've ever guessed.
       Abm                         Cm        C

If my heart could beat, it would break my chest!
        Abm           Cm    C

But i can see, you're unimpressed.
      Abm
So leave me be.
            F        Am
And let me rest in peace!
        E

Let me get some sleep!
         F                Am
Let me take my love and bury it,
       E              D

in a hole six foot deep!
        F           B                 C              Em
I can lay my body down but i can't, find my sweet release!
    Dm      G   F   Am
So let me rest in peace!
Am              F      Am   E   D

Why won't you, let me rest in peace!

View Just Lyrics...

I died
Too many years ago
You can make me feel
Like it isn't so

Why you come to be with me
I think I finally know
You're scared, ashamed of what you feel
You can't tell the ones you love

You know they couldn't deal
Whisper in a dead man's ear
Doesn't make it real
That's great, but I don't want to play

Being with you touches me more than I can say
Since I'm only dead to you
I'm saying stay away
And let me rest in peace

Let me rest in peace
Let me get some sleep
Let me take my love and bury it
In a hole 6 foot deep

I lay my body down
But I can't find my sweet release
Let me rest in peace
You know you got a willing slave

And you just love to play the thought
That you might misbehave
But till you do, I'm telling you
Stop visiting my grave

And let me rest in peace
I know I should go
But I follow you like a man possessed
There's a traitor here beneath my breast

And it hurts me more than you've ever guessed
If my heart could beat it would break my chest
But I can see you're unimpressed
So leave me be

Let me rest in peace
let me get some sleep
Let me take my love and bury it

In a hole 6 foot deep
I lay my body down
But I can't find my sweet release
Let me rest in peace

Why won't you let me rest in peace?
