C C                 Am Am
Love of mine, someday you will die
F F
But i will be close behind
C C G G
I'll follow you into the dark


C C Am Am
No blinding light, or tunnels to gates of white
F F
Just our hands clasped so tight
C C G G
Waiting for the hint of a spark


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


C C Am Am
Catholic school, as vicious as roman rule
F F C C G G
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
C C Am Am Fm Fm
I held my tongue and she told me Son fear is the heart of love
C C G G
So i never went back


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

C C Am Am
You and me have seen everything to see
F F C C G G
from Bangkok to Calgary And the soles of your shoes
C C Am Am
Are all worn down the time for sleep is now
F F
But there's nothing to cry about
C C G G Am Am F F
Cause we'll hold each other soon in the blackest of rooms


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

awesome! this is really great c: but in the second verse "in catholic schools..."
I think the Fm over 'heart' should be just an F.

you should say that this isn't in the key of the song. and I'm not sure Am fits there... maybe some more chord hunting :)

About this song

"I Will Follow You Into the Dark" is the third single from Death Cab for Cutie's album Plans. It's an acoustic ballad performed solo, by frontman Ben Gibbard. It was recorded with a single microphone, and there is no overdubbing in the song. It was released as a single in the UK as a two-part 7" single (one on green vinyl, the other on "mustard" colored vinyl) and as a CD single. The I Follow You Into The Dark Songfacts states that Gibbard told VH1's Storytellers that Gibbard penned the song in a burst of creativity in 15 miniutes at a Seattle studio, which he kept solely for songwriting.
