Body In A Box  City and Colour

[A]There's a funeral [E]procession on the hig[F#m]hway,     [D]

[A]Traffic screech[E]es to a halt.           [F#m]          [D]

[A]There's people sea[E]rching for a better w[F#m]ay,       [D]
To live their live[A]s.         [E]          [F#m]          [D]
[A]Johnny lived a goo[E]d life, you'll hear t[F#m]hem say   [D]
[A]As tears of sadnes[E]s soak the ground.   [F#m]          [D]
[A]The reaper crept i[E]n, took his breath aw[F#m]ay,       [D]
In the middle of the [A]night    [E]         [F#m]          [D]
(Chorus:)

[F#m]We celebrate the lives of the dead[D],

It's like a man's best [A]party, only happens when he [E]dies.
[F#m]We gather 'round to pay our respect[D]s,
While their [A]souls are still searching for the l[E]ight,
Searching for the light. -> back to verse chords

Verse:

[A]So please don't co[E]me to me on my dying [F#m]day,      [D]

[A]Just let me go in [E]peace.               [F#m]          [D]
[A]With all the thing[E]s that I forgot to sa[F#m]y,        [D]
Still racing through my[A] mind.   [E]       [F#m]          [D]
[A]And don't you bury[E] me six feet under gr[F#m]ound,     [D]
[A]Just burn my body [E]in a box.            [F#m]          [D]
[A]And let my ashes b[E]low with the wind,   [F#m]          [D]
Out into the night.... [A]sky.     [E]       [F#m]          [D]
Chorus:

[F#m]We celebrate the lives of the dead[D],

It's like a man's best [A]party, only happens when he [E]dies.
[F#m]We gather 'round to pay our respect[D]s,
While their [A]souls are still searching for the l[E]ight,
Searching for the light. -> back to verse chords then finish
