When Im Dead Tab

   
When I'm Dead by Stabbing Westward

Tabbed by Dave Bloom

  This song, is pretty unique to itself.  I really can't
find the right adjectives to describe it. Anyway, there 
are quite a few different chords in this song.  I must say
after tabbing almost all the songs on this album, almost
every song has a B flat chord in it, just a little observation
for you.  


Drop D tuning

The intro is the same as the outro and is the same as
the part inbetween verses...

 Play it 2x's
---------------------
---------------------
-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----
-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--3-0
-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--3-0
------------------3-0

For the verse, you play a C and then slide to a D,
then the F and D2. If you don't understand that, 
e-mail me and i'll explain in better detail...

A change that I noticed.  when I play this dong, the D2 chord 
doesn't right to me anymore, if you have been feeling the same
try playing an A chord instead, and if it doesn't sound better
than I don't know what to tell you, I believe it is an A or the
D2, so there ya go...


The lyrics and chord/chord changes


C   D        F          D2     C  D             F     D2
  I know the tears your crying in your bed at night alone

C   D                 F    D2          C    D            F   D2
  I've cried those tears a thousand times

C   D                 F    D2       C    D            F   D2
  But those shallow empty songs about suicide are patronizing

C   D               F     D2         C    D            F   D2
  You've got to learn to face your fears


             G                                 Bb   Bb A Bb
  Or do you think I'll be less lonely when I'm dead

               G                          Bb   Bb A Bb
  It can't silence all the voices in my head

              G                           Bb
  I close my eyes but I can't make it go away

           Eb  D2 Eb                      
  Do you think I'll be less lonely              LISTEN CAREFULLY
                                         FOR THOSE QUICK CHANGES!!
          C                   Ab
  God I pray that i'm less lonely
