Verse
[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
