Could someone please post the chords?? Pretty please. This song would be perfect for my band to do.

Just sat down and tried it. As usual, most of them sound right, but I know I added some stuff that doesn't belong and am lacking certain other things. Kind of like life!

Code:
Em             Am    D             G          Em
   If you stay sober, I'll put the kettle on.

                 Am   D               G          D
And you can come over, drink tea, and watch the lawn,
   
    C            G    D 
And I'll lay you down.

C             G   
 I'll lay you down

D      C                 G         D      C D Am
As the lights come on in town when day is over.

Here's what I came up with, thanks to you Mike.... (my code-ing skills suck though trying to match up the chords and words. But you get the idea):

Code:
Code:

Em               Am    D                  G    Em
   If you stay sober,  I'll put the kettle on.

                 Am     D             G               
And you can come over, drink tea, and watch the lawn,
   
      C       G     
And I'll lay you down.

      C      G   
 I'll lay you down

        C                 G               C  D Am
As the lights come on in town when day is over.

Em         Am         D           G  Em
I wanted to die for two days in  95’ 
         
                Am                D                    G       
I stood by the lakeside and waited for the mood to be right.

              C           G
As all the leaves turned brown,

  C                  G           C               G      D  Am                             
I listened for the sounds starting to announce October.

Bridge:
Em     Am    D     G   Em  Am    D   G    Em

      C       G                         
I'll lay you down

            C            G
you can empty out your mouth

      C          G                 C                  G   D   Am
and I'll arrange the room again when everything is over.

I played this with my band last night and it was awesome! Fiddle, cello and hammer dulcimer (& two guitars). Nice.
