NOTES:

- Zac plays a nylon in this song

VERSE:

            E 
I see them rise
      Asus2 E 
From beneath the ground
          Asus2 E 
Life was lost but now it's found
                 Esus2 / E5 
The ghosts want somethin'

               E 
To take their turn
    Asus2 E 
To dance around the stone
          Asus2 E 
Work the fingers to the bone
            Esus2 / E5 
Hold on to nothin'

CHORUS:

 E E 
Day for the dead,
    Asus2 E 
To dance among the living
 E E 
Day for the dead
    Asus2 E 
To dance among the living

 E7 C#m6 Asus2 E E7 C#m6 Asus2 E Asus2 E 
We find forgiveness
         Asus2 E 
For the wrong we've done
           Asus2 E 
Watch the dyin' of the day
         Esus2 / E5 
Another settin' sun

         Asus2 E 
We find redemption
        Asus2 E 
In the love we've won
               Asus2 E 
Just a little company
           Esus2 / E5 
Until our work is done

 E E 
Day for the dead,
    Asus2 E 
To dance among the living
 E E 
Day for the dead
    Asus2 E 
To dance among the living

 E7 C#m6 Asus2 E E7 C#m6 Asus2 E 

Solos

Beatboxing/Acapella

Who says you can't go back?
Who says you can't go back,
Back to where you started from? (are you ready?)
Who says you can't go back? (are you ready?)
Who says you can't go back,
Back to where you started from? (are you ready)
Who says you can't go back? (are you ready?)

The bone falls on the river Styx
The man who makes you dead
Coins lay on his eyes
Just to pay your fare

 E 
Day for the dead
    Asus2 E 
To dance among the living

More soloing
