Dm Dm F F Bb Bb F F C C - Dm Dm F F C C -Dm Dm F F A A Dm Dm C C Bb Bb Bbm Bbm

Verse
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

Chorus:
Dm Dm F F Bb Bb F F C C
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 C C
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

Verse
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

Chorus
Dm Dm F F Bb Bb F F C C
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 C C
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

Verse
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



Chorus
Dm Dm F F Bb Bb F F C C
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 C C
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

Some of the chords are a little out of place, and there's also already a tab almost exactly like this on the site

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.
