Intro

Dm Dm F F Bb Bb F F Am Am
Dm Dm F F C C
Dm Dm F F A A Dm Dm Am Am Bb Bb Bbm Bbm



F F
Love of mine,
Dm Dm
Someday you will die
Bb Bb
But I will be close behind
F F C C
I will follow, you into the dark
F F
No blinding light
Dm Dm
Or tunnels to gates of white
Bb Bb
Just our hands clasped so tight
F F C C
Waiting for, the hint of a spark



Dm Dm F F Bb Bb F F Am Am
If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied
Dm Dm F F C C
Illuminate the "no"s, on their vacancy signs
Dm Dm F F A A Dm Dm Am Am
If there's no one beside you, when your soul embarks
Bb Bb Bbm Bbm F F
Then I will follow you into the dark



F F
Catholic school
Dm Dm
As vicious as roman rule
Bb Bb
I got my knuckles bruised
F F C C
By a lady in black
F F Dm Dm Bb Bb
And I held my tongue as she told me, "Son, fear is the heart of love."
F F C C
So I never went back



Dm Dm F F Bb Bb F F Am Am
If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied
Dm Dm F F C C
Illuminate the "no"s, on their vacancy signs
Dm Dm F F A A Dm Dm Am Am
If there's no one beside you, when your soul embarks
Bb Bb Bbm Bbm F F
Then I will follow you into the dark



F F Dm Dm
You and me, have seen everything to see
Bb Bb
From Bangkok to Calgary
F F C C
And the soles of your shoes
F F Dm Dm
Are all worn down, the time for sleep is now
Bb Bb
But it's nothing to cry about
F F C C Dm Dm Bbm Bbm
Because we'll hold each other soon, in the blackest of rooms



Dm Dm F F Bb Bb F F Am Am
If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied
Dm Dm F F C C
Illuminate the "no"s, on their vacancy signs
Dm Dm F F A A Dm Dm Am Am
If there's no one beside you, when your soul embarks
Bb Bb Bbm Bbm F F Am Am
Then I will follow you into the dark

Bb Bb Bbm Bbm F F
Then I will follow you into the dark.

It sounds much better on the "vacancy signs" line if you add a Csus4 before the C. Also, I recommend the D-DU strumming pattern for this one.

Thanks.

Strumming pattern us DDUUDU except for the quick changes at the end of two lines in the chorus which is two down strums on each chord (on 'satisfied' and 'embarks'. The F Am should be F C and the Dm Am shoudl be Dm F.

C instead of Am sounds much better.

I dont' use a strum pattern for this song. Use fingerpicking (one finger per string) to play 1(top)-2-3-4-pause-2-3-4-etc.It's a little more challenging to play but it's worth it.

I love this song and I play it all the time. Tip: if you add a C7 at the "signs" lyric it sounds better

Chords are spot on for sure! Small issue where the chord changes don't line up with the words. Listen to the song for where to switch

Love this tab. Just started playing the uke and this was a great beginner song that was incredibly easy to play and figure out. I used D-DU-UDU strumming pattern; that sounds best to me.
