I Will Follow You Into The Dark by Death Cab For Cutie

I Will Follow You Into The Dark chords by Death Cab For Cutie

Chords with lyrics

copy already and thought I would do those looking for the chords when it's released a
service. It's a great, sparse little folk song that emphasizes the bottom half of the
chords and strums mostly on the upbeats. The way this is done is by picking the bottom
two notes of the chord on the downbeats of the verses.

For example, with the Chord diagramFF chord, it's played something like this, but the upper half of
the chord is strummed more than once in the rise and fall of the strumming hand:

e  1   1
Chord diagramBB  1   1
Chord diagramG+G  2   2
Chord diagramD MajorD 3   3
Chord diagramA augmentedA   3   3
Chord diagramE MajorE

The chorus is pretty much exactly like the introduction.

Standard Tuning

Intro:
Chord diagramC majorC
C (Barchord)
Chord diagramC majorC note progression beginning)

Verse One:
Chord diagramFF (F-C Root note going)

      Chord diagramC majorC

Chord diagramFF (F-C Root note going)
No blinding light
            Chord diagramDmDm (D-A Root note going)
Or tunnels to gates of white
              Chord diagramBb majorBb
Just our hands clasped so tight
     Chord diagramC majorC
Waiting for, the hint of a spark

Chorus:
  Chord diagramC majorC
If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied
Chord diagramC majorC (bar chord)

Chord diagramC majorC root again)
Then I will follow you into the dark

Verse Two:
Chord diagramFF (F-C root note going)
Catholic school
           Chord diagramA augmentedA root note)
As vicious as roman rule
      Chord diagramBb majorBb
I got my knuckles bruised
   Chord diagramC majorC
By a lady in black

    Chord diagramBb majorBb
And I held my tongue as she told me, "son, fear is the heart of love."
    Chord diagramC majorC
So I never went back

Chorus Two (Same):
  Chord diagramC majorC
If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied
Chord diagramC majorC (bar chord)
Illuminate the "no's", on their vacancy signs
Chord diagramC majorC
If there's no one beside you, when your soul embarks
Chord diagramC majorC root again)
Then I will follow you into the dark

Verse Three:
Chord diagramDmDm
You and me, have seen everything to see
         Chord diagramBb majorBb
From Bangkok to Calgary
     Chord diagramC majorC (barchord)
And the soles of your shoes
  Chord diagramDmDm
Are all worn down, the time for sleep is now
           Chord diagramBb majorBb
But it's nothing to cry about
        Chord diagramBbmBbm
Because we'll hold each other soon, in the blackest of rooms

Continue strumming the Chord diagramBb majorBb minor an extra measure before the last chorus.

If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied
Chord diagramC majorC (bar chord)

Chord diagramD MajorD string
Then I will follow you into the dark

Repeat last line, ending on F.
