Retabbed by Jzeme O'cala (Billy the kid)

(Note: some of those D chords may be a D7 and he occaisonally plays a Dsus4. Just listen for it)


Intro: G Bm Am7 C     X2


G              Bm                    C                   G
 Just when the last of the smoke subsides you'll see my fingers
G            Bm        Am7              D
 Hoisting my body up atop the charred debris
G            Bm                Em                 Bm
 Who is that creature with the crazed look in his eyes?
C           G
 Don't even question your senses
C                      D
You can be sure that's me
             Em                 G        C               D
When all the pretenders to your hand lie dead across the land,

            G    Bm      C        D
I'll be the last man on earth
            G    Bm      C        D
I'll be the last man on earth
            G    Bm      C        D
I'll be the last man on earth
          G     D             G
Crawling around, down on the ground

G              Bm                C                 G         
 When the Hail Marys you've been saying lose their savor
G               Bm                  Am7                 D
 Just when your dungeon walls feel like they're closing in
G                Bm              Em                Bm
 Whose are those bloody knuckles reaching down to grab you
C            G                      C               D
 Just as the last of the light overhead is growing dim?
       Em                         G
It was their love you wanted, not mine
                C                  D
But when they deny your name three times

            G    Bm      C        D
I'll be the last man on earth
            G    Bm      C        D
I'll be the last man on earth
            G    Bm      C        D
I'll be the last man on earth
          G     D             G
Crawling around, down on the ground

Em           D                   G
 And I will throw you across my shoulders
Em           D                G
 And I will bleed and I will drool
Em         D               C             G
 And the cameras will slow pan across my face
Em          F                    D
 And I will try to say something cool

G            Bm                   C              G   
 Just as the hoardes of thirsting demons close around us
G              Bm                 Am7            D
 Raising their axes, howling like monkeys in the sun
G              Bm             Em            Bm
 Who will that guy be holding you so high above them?
C              G               C                 D 
 You know and I know, everyone knows it, I'm the one
           Em                 G
I may have failed you once before
          C                     D
But this right here, this means war

            G    Bm      C        D
I'll be the last man on earth
            G    Bm      C        D
I'll be the last man on earth
            G    Bm      C        D
I'll be the last man on earth
          G     D             G
Crawling around, down on the ground
