Verse (Am F C  F  C  G Em  Am)
Am                    F         C
Washed my face in the rivers of empire
        F            C         G
Made my bed from the cardboard crate
     Em             Am
Down in the city of courts

Verse (Am F C  F  C  G Em  Am)
Am          F     C
No news, no new regrets
         F       C       G
Tossed a susan b over my shoulder
    F               Em       Dm
And prayed it would rain and rain
   F         Em            Dm
Submerge the whole western state

Chorus (C F C F Em Am) 
         C         F
Called a last fair deal 
        C        F
With an american zeal
    Em            Am
and corporate handshake

Verse (Am F C  F  C  G Em  Am)
Am                F         C
take the story of carpenter mike
                F             C        G
Who dropped his tools and his keys and left
    F             Em        Dm
And headed out as far as he could
         F        Em              Dm
Past the city and gayday neighbourhoods
       C                F
And he slept 'neath the stars
      C            F
Wrote down what he dreamt
       C         F         Em        Am
And he built a machine for no-one to see
         G            F            C
and took flight first light of new morning

The lyrics are wrong. This set of lyrics actually *reverses* the sentiment of the song.

The actual lyrics are: (differences are boxed in asterisks)

Washed my face in the rivers of empire
Made my bed from *a* cardboard crate
Down in the city of *quartz*
No news, no new regrets
Tossed a susan b. over my shoulder
And prayed it would rain and rain
Submerge the whole western *states*
*Call it* a last fair deal
With an american *seal*
And corporate hand shake
Take the story of carpenter mike
Dropped his tools and his keys and left
And headed out as far as he could
Past the cities and *gated* neighborhoods
He slept 'neath the stars
Wrote down what he dreamt
And he built a machine
For no one to see
Then took flight, first light, of new morning

The lyrics correction is right on. Otherwise, the tab is okay, I think. The Em doesn't always sound right to me, but the rest seems about right.

I want to post or [tab]
