House of Heroes - Ghost 

(C)             G
Fell in love in high school
       C                        G
With a brown haired, green eyed girl
                       Em7
I walked her home most everyday
         C                  
Held her hand, I held the world
                    G
We made our plan to run away
           C                 G
I couldn't wait to share her life
                   Em7
We started countin down the days
             C                 G
She couldn't wait to be my wife
           
I got a job and bought a car
         C       G
I turned 18 that spring
                 Em7
By summer had my own place
       C               
And I bought my baby's ring
                 G
Fell in with the wrong crowd
         C                G
Breakin laws, I broke her heart
                 Em7
By autumn was in handcuffs
       C                          G
Baby's cryin out in her front yard
     D                    
And that's what hurt the most
  Em7                C
I saw it in her green eyes
               G
She had seen a ghost

               G
My mama saw me every week
           C             G
Tried her hardest not to cry
                     Em7
She told me that she loved me
      C               
Disappointment in her eyes
                 G
I said, "Mama, I love you too
              C                  G
And I'm gonna make you proud one day"
                 Em7
A month before I got out
             C               G
They told me mama passed away
     D           
And that's what hurt the most
  Em7          C                    G 
I saw it in her eyes, her son was a ghost
  Dsus              D
I hate this life I chose
Em7             C                  G
Long before she died her son was a ghost

            G
Now I got my freedom
       C                G
But it feels like emptiness
                Em7
In front of the apartment
           C               
Where your sister says you live
               G              C             G
And there's another man, who fills my empty shoes
                     Em7
And darlin you don't see me
         C                            G
But you know that I see you, I drift off...

          G
I'm gonna fade away
    C           G
Beyond the city lights
           Em7
I'm gonna fade away
C             
Through the emty night
           G
I'm gonna fade away
C                 G
Drifting out your life
        Em7
I wanna fade away
C                       G
Through the empty night

it sounds better with the capo on the 2nd fret, when you use these chords

I'd say this is right. It's right in the same place for me vocally as the album version is.
