                Okay - here's my version of "Suicide is Painless".  The sheet music I had 
was arranged for piano - so the chords and tab are just guesses.  The music
sounds right on piano, but I haven't tested it on guitar.

                             "Suicide is Painless"
                              Words by Mike Altman
                             Music by Johnny Mandel

                    1  &  2  & 3 & 4 &      1  &  2  & 3 &

        Em7	         A7
Through early morning fog I see
D	             Bm
Visions of the things to be
    Em                     A7sus4  A7
The pains that are withheld for me
  D            Bm7      F#m7/B  B7
I realize and I can see		 that

        Em7	       A7
Chorus: Suicide is painless
            D                 Bm7       
        It brings on many changes
            Gmaj7     D/F#     Em    A7         Bm
        And I can take or leave it if I please.

I try to find a way to make
All our little joys relate
Without that ever-present hate
But now I know that it's too late, and


The game of life is hard to play
I'm going to lose it anyway
The losing card I'll someday lay
And this is all I have to say, that


The only way to win is cheat
And lay it down before I'm beat
And to another give a seat
For that's the only painless feat, cause


The sword of time will pierce our skins
It doesn't hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger - watch it grin


A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that are key
Is it to be or not to be?
And I replied, "Oh why ask me?", cause


    Gm7     D/F#   Em7        A7     Bm
And you can do the same thing if you please.
