Guitar is mixed really low in this one, but I've tried my best!

intro: hi-hat, keyboard riff x2
bass enters... play this riff twice:



E--------7---|
B------8-----|
G----9-------|
D--7---------|
A------------|
E------------|


main bass/drum rhythm kicks in, riff is as follows (play twice) - bass root notes
alternate between A and G for this section:



E--9------9------8-----8----7-----7-----6-----6-|
B----10-----10-----7----------8-----8-----5-----|
G-------9------------8----------9-----------6---|
D-----------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------|


then: A E D C

They [A]crucify you when you [E]get it wrong
When [D]things are fine they put [C]you ahead
They [A]laugh at you with your [E]trousers down
They [D]pick the stones and aim them [C]at your head
[A]When you're al[E]ive they won't [D]care what you've [C]said
[A]What you des[E]erve and all the [D]blood you've bl[C]ed

(play intro riff x2)

[A]Doesn't matter what you [E]try to hide
The [D]sun comes out and then the [C]truth is read
Your [A]fans'll love you when [E]you're alive
But the [D]wreaths are laid by the [C]rest instead
[A]When you're [E]alive they won't [D]care what you've [C]said
[A]What you [E]deserve and all the [D]blood you've [C]bled

(bass root notes appear above):

Cos everybody loves you when you're dead
[(A)] [(G)] [(E)]

E-----------7-------------------2----------|
B---------8-------------------3------------|
G-------9-------------------4--------------|
D-----7-------------------2----------------|<- play twice
A------------------------------------------|

E-------0-----------------------------------|
B-----1-----------------------1-------------|
G---2-----------------------1---------------|
D-0-----------------------3-----------------|<- play twice
A-----------------------1-------------------|

And then everybody loves you when you're dead
[(A)] [(G)] [(E)]

E---------------7-------------------2-------|
B-------------8-------------------3---------|
G-----------9-------------------4-----------|
D---------7-------------------2-------------|<- play twice

intro riff (guitar is mixed really low here, so it's going to take some time to
figure out).

A5 G5 A5 G5 (x2)

[A5]When you're a[G5]live they won't [A5]care what you've [G5]said
[A5]What you de[G5]serve and all the [A5]blood you [G5]bled
You'll [A]turn in your [E]grave at what's [D]gonna be [C]said
You'll [A]finally [E]be appre[D]cia[C]ted
Cos [A]every[E]body loves you [D]when you're [C]dead
[A]Every[E]body loves you [D]when you're [C]dead


ending (unsure of this bit):

[(A)] [(G)] [(E)] [(D)] [(C)] [(Bb)]
