The Coroner's Gambit
by The Mountain Goats
tabbed by Jonathan Bliss
      and Andy Moskowitz
[Note by ~ETX~ : I play an A E B F# for the bridge transition starting at "and I'm sorry I couldn't."
                 Also to play the take 1 alternate version floating around online it's just one half step up.]

 F#
 F#              B             F#
 when death came calling today,
             B                            F#
 i heard the gentle grace of his cadences.
               C#
 i couldn't say no.
               B   F#
 i couldn't say no.

 when he showed me his new silk scarves
 laid out on a shiny black plastic tray,
 couldn't say, couldn't say, couldn't say, couldn't say, couldn't say no.
 i couldn't say no.

                      A
 and i'm sorry i couldn't.
                         E
 do you know how badly i wanted to?
 B                                                                   F#
 didn't want, didn't want, didn't want, didn't want, didn't want to lose you,
 but his smile was dazzling mmmm,
 and his eyes were sparkling like moonlight on the water at midnight.
 couldn't say, couldn't say, couldn't say, couldn't say, couldn't say, couldn't say no.
 i couldn't say no.
