Guitar chords with lyrics

This  is one of my favorite songs right now.  You can fingerpick through the whole intro


(Intro)

                        A chord diagramEb MajorEb
Well, my father put his shame on me.
Said he wouldn't put his name on me.
                        A chord diagramBb majorBb
Said he wouldn't be the first in his family
Whose son cried when he was born.
                         A chord diagramEb MajorEb
Well, he died the day I got a gun.
Said that he was proud that I's his son.
               A chord diagramBb majorBb
That was right there in his plan,
I'd grow up and be a man,
        A chord diagramAbAb
Aaaand there was a tear,
I saw it in his eye.
    A chord diagramBb majorBb
He said he couldn't think
Of a better way to die.......

   (enter face-melting rock and roll and repeat the rest of the way)

(1st verse)
                      A chord diagramEb MajorEb
And the Lord came down
And put a spoon in my mouth.
              A chord diagramBb majorBb
It tasted so bitter,
But I couldn't spit it out.
                  A chord diagramEb MajorEb
It tasted like the money
That my poor momma made
                  A chord diagramBb majorBb
Well, I went an' stole it
'cause she took it to the grave.
     A chord diagramAbAb
And there was a note
Clenched in her right hand.
       A chord diagramBb majorBb
Said, "Boy, if you wanna live,
"Better die like a brave man."

(Chorus)
      A chord diagramEb MajorEb
Well, I don't wanna die in the middle of the night.
I want a brave man's death.
A chord diagramBb majorBb
I don't wanna die in the middle of the night.
I want a brave man's death.
A chord diagramAbAb
Spittin' gasoline, burnin' my teeth,
Gettin' salt on the fields of my past,
       A chord diagramBb majorBb
And a sword'll come down with a milky white flash;
I'll get my brave man's death at last.

(2nd verse)

I had a woman.
She had some kids.
She said she loved them.
I never did.

Just the way that they feed
And take away what was young.
My wife's muscle
Could do what needed to be done.

That day that she died,
Her cup was fully drained.
She said, "Take hope, my love.
"That life was worth the pain."

(Chorus)

(Bridge )
A chord diagramEb MajorEb
Had a heart that's willing,
But a back without a bone,
And a body'd go to war,
But my head would come home,
A chord diagramBb majorBb
And I always had a knife
In case a real man came along.
He'd turn his head
And his life was gone.
A chord diagramEb MajorEb
So, I hold it in my heart.
Yes, I hold it in my heart.
No, I hide it my heart
'cause it's tearin' me apart,
A chord diagramBb majorBb
Last thing that he said to me
Was blood was on my hands.
God, I wanna die like a man.
YEAH!

I don't wanna die. (I don't wanna die.)
I want a brave man's death.
I don't wanna die. (I don't wanna die.)
I want a brave man's death.

Pray the Lord my soul to keep,
Keep it in his right hand,
And with his left, to send me death,
The death of a brave man.

I don't wanna die. (I don't wanna die.)
