Intro: C, C/B, Em (x4) C, C/B


Verse 1:
D                            G
The dead girl mopes through a dead scene
D                                              C
With a cross-stitched lip she’s picking at the seams
D
She’s got bravado she says she’s been
G           G/F#    Em
Featured in a few magazines
Am    D
Ahh, Ahh


Interlude: C, C/B, Em (x2) C, C/B


Verse 2:
D                                       G
Now outside the bar Hank is straddling a police car
D                                              C
His fingers are purple and numb from circling a crowbar
D
Well twenty-four years have made it clear
    G           G/F#              Em
That things ain't ever what they appear
Am D
No no

He says


Chorus:
G         D
I won’t be going easily
Am      C/B  D      C
No I won’t be going lightly
G             D
And I won’t be going peacefully
Am        C/B D     C
No I won’t be going innocently


Interlude: C, C/B, Em (x4) C, C/B


Verse 3:
D                           G
A sweet drink spiked with a speed-ball
D                                   C
A twenty-foot ladder and a ninety-foot wall
D                             G
Dark shadows are gathering and swaggering
G/F#    Em
Down the hall
Am   D
Ahh, Ahh

And I know


Chorus:
G         D
I won’t be going easily
Am   C/B  D      C
I won’t be going lightly
G             D
And I won’t be going peacefully
Am        C/B D     C
No I won’t be going cleanly


Outro: C, C/B, Em
