Verse-
Well, I [Am]wonder which song they're gonna [Em]play when we go.
I hope it's [Am]something quiet and minor and peaceful and [F]slow.
when we [Am]float out into the ether, into the [Em]Everlasting Arms,
I hope we [Am]don't hear Marley's chains we forged in [F]life.
'cause the chains I been hearing now for most of my life.
Chorus-
Did you hear the [C]'59 Sound coming through on Gr[F]andmama's radio?
Did you hear the r[Am]attling chains[G] in the hospital wa[F]lls?
Did you hear the o[C]ld gospel choir when they came to c[F]arry you over?
Did you hear your [Am]favorite song[G] one last [F]time?
Verse-
And I wonder were you scared when the metal hit the glass?
See, I was playing a show down the road
when your spirit left your body.
And they told me on the front lawn.
I'm sorry I couldn't go,
but I still know the song and the words and her name and the reasons.
And I know 'cause we were kids and we used to hang.
(Chorus)
Young boys, young girls, ain't supposed to die on a Saturday night.
(Chorus)
