-INTRO-

D Riff
D Riff

-VERSE-

D Riff
Parents don't be too kind to your kids
D Riff
Or else how will they grow up to be
D Riff
Louche Parisian sinners and Nashville country singers
D Riff
Singing about the terrible things their parents did

D Riff
Lovers dont be sparing with the truth
D Riff
Break their hearts if that's what you must do
D Riff
Fill them with remorse tinged with hope of course
D Riff                                      E riff
Let their baser instincts pull them through

-CHORUS-

              E7             Gsus2         E riff
And though it seems a little strange to me
                    E7        Gsus2
People never really change it seems

-VERSE-

            D      Dsus2/G
All across America
A7 riff        D             Dsus2/G  A7 riff
Waitresses and boys who play guitar
     D                Dsus2/G
They fall in love and fall out
                           A7 riff
The boys have something to sing about
        D                    Dsus2/G             A7 riff
And the girls go drown their sorrows in the bars

D                        Dsus2/G                A7 riff
While in front rooms all across the old country
D                 Dsus2/G            A7 riff
Sat spellbound in front of their TVs
D                    Dsus2/G
Younger brothers and sisters
                       A7 riff
Wonder at what they're missing
D              Dsus2/G                            A7 riff  E riff
Wonder how the air tastes when you're really free

-CHORUS-

              E7             Gsus2         E riff
And though it seems a little strange to me
             E7           Gsus2           E riff
Well you can never really change it seems
          E7              Gsus2          E riff
We're all broken boys and girls at heart
     E7             Gsus2
Come together, fall apart

-POWER VERSE-
       D5~                                     NEW RIFF
And in Battersea power station the Fisher King
D5~                                         NEW RIFF
Ponders on his ruin among many other things
   D5~
He folds his broken hands
   D5~                  NEW RIFF
Surveys his baron lands
    D5~               D5~            D5
And prays for hope to whisper in the wind

-BRIDGE-

              Gsus2
Cause we were born without reason
      A7
We'll die without meaning
        Dm             Dm/C
And the world will not shrug all that
Gsus2
Much at our passing
        G6
You can try and try and try
    A7                             D  Dsus2/G  A7 riff 2
But no one ever makes it out alive
    D           Dsus2/G            A7 riff 2
But no one ever makes it out alive

-OUTRO-

        D               Dsus2/G
All you broken boys and girls
          Em             A7 riff 2
With your tattered flags unfurled
D                 Dsus2/G        Em   A7 riff 2
Fix yourselves to fix the Fisher King

        D               Dsus2/G

With your tattered flags unfurled

Fix yourselves to fix the Fisher King

          Dsus2/G           Dsus/F#        Em    A7 riff 2
Won't you fix yourselves to fix the Fisher King?

Won't you fix yourselves to fix the Fisher King?

I'm having trouble making the connection between the riffs listed at the top and the riffs listed with the lyrics. Like I get that D Riff=Riff 1, but other than that I don't understand which riffs go where. Am I reading something wrong?

I really apologise - I remember now, I started to edit this and make it better but I was then without a computer for quite a while. I simply forgot to finish the changes. I'll quickly run up an edit! :)
