Em        Em7              Em6
       My death waits like
Emb6          Em         Em7
       an old drouin (?)
	  Em6        Emb6
       So confident
       I'll go his way

Em7               Em6
       Whistle to him
Emb6          D            Dsus4  D
      and the passing time
G                    A
      My death waits like
	G            C
      a Bible truth
	     F             Am      Am\G
      at the funeral of my youth
      oh we drank for that
      and the passing time

  G#m                     F#
      My death waits like
      a witched night
	F#                     G#m
     as surely as our love is bright
	       F#              B
     let's not think about the passing time

     Em                D                C
     But whatever lies behind the door
     there is nothing much to do
     Em             D             C     C\B
     Angel or Devil I don't care 
		   Am       Am\G             B
     For in front of that door there is you
     Bb     C#  Gm 
     My death waits like 

     a beggar blind

     who sees the world through a ? mind
     throw him a dime for the passing time

      Bb            C#                  Bb
     My death waits there between your thighs
	       G#                    Cm
     Your cold fingers will close my eyes
     Let's think of that
	     Bb                            0
     And the passing time

     Bm              A
     My death waits
     to allow my friend
     a few good  times 
     before it ends
     so let's drink to that
     and the passing time

     G                 F                    Eb
     but whatever lies behind the door
			      D            G
     there is nothing much to do
		   F              Eb
     Angel or Devil I don't care 

     for in front of that door 
     there is you 

     My death waits there

     among the leaves

     in magicians mysterious sleeves

     rabbits and dogs
     and the passing time

     Bb             C#
     My death waits there
     among the flowers
	       G#              C#m
     where the blackest shadow cowers(?)
		G#             Bb
     Let's pick lilacs for the passing time

     Bm             A
     My death waits there 
     in a double bed 
     sails of oblivion
     at my head 
     so pull up your seats against 
     the passing time

      Gm               F               Eb
     But whatever lies behind the door 
		      D            Gm
     there is nothing much to do 
     Angel or Devil 
     I don't care  

     for in front of that door.......

Logical Lyric Corrections.

"My Death waits like a beggar blind
Who sees the world thru' an unlit mind"

"My Death waits there in a double bed
Sails of oblivion at my head
So pull up the sheets against the passing time"
