Haven't seen the chords for this song anywhere so I decided to do it on my own. It 
was kinda hard to get the chords right, but just listen to the song while you play 
it the first times and you will get it. By the way, I wasn't good enough to find 
out the chords for the outro. Sorry for that. 

Any questions? Email alexnvl@hotmail.com

Intro (this might look tricky but you simply play each chord for each note):

Cm Bb/D Bb Cm Ab Ab Bb Gm Ab Cm Cm Bb/D Bb Cm Ab Ab Bb Gm Ab Eb 



Eb
Leaves are fallin' down on the beautiful ground
          Cm
I heard a story from the man in red

He said "The leaves are fallin' down

Such a beautiful sound
       Cm
Son, I think you'd better go ahead
        Eb
But you always hold your head up high
              Cm
'Cause it's a long, long, long way down
              Eb
This town was meant for passing through
       
Boy it ain't nothin' new
           Cm
Now go and show 'em that the world stayed round
            Ab                  Gm    Fm   Eb  Eb  Ab  Gm Bb          
But it's a long, long, long way down
           Eb
You better run for the hills

Before they burn
              Cm
Listen to the sound of the world

Don't watch it turn
               Fm            Gm
I just want to show you what I know
                       Ab
And catch you when the current
        Bb
Lets you go
                 Eb             
Or should I just get along with myself
            Cm
I never did get along with everybody else
                 Eb
I've been tryin' hard to do what's right
             Cm                            Ab
But you know I could stay here, all night
                                   Fm

Sometimes I'm nervous when I talk

I shake a little

Sometimes I hate the line I walk

Or should I just get along with myself
            Cm
I never did get along with everybody else

I've been tryin' hard to do what's right

Eb
Now Adam's taking bombs and he's stuck on his mom
             Cm
Because that bitch keeps tryin' to make him pray
              Eb
He's with the hippie in the park combing over the dark
               Cm
Just tryin' to get some of that little-girl play
            Ab                Gm 
You better run for the hills before they burn
              Fm    
Listen to the sound of the world
       Eb
Don't watch it turn
               Fm            Gm
I just want to show you what I know
                       Ab

        Bb
Lets you go

            Eb
Or should I get along with myself
            Ab                  Gm
I never did get along with everybody else
                 Bb                 Cm
I've been tryin' hard to do what's right
             Eb               Ab
But you know I could stay here

All night
Ab                                 Fm   Bb
And watch the clouds fall from the sky
Ab                         Bb
This pain is hell in me tonight

                       Cm Bb/D Bb Cm Ab
Because this river is wild
             Ab Bb Gm Ab Cm
Godspeed ya, boy
              Cm Bb/D Bb Cm Ab Ab Bb Gm Ab 
This river is wild
                       Cm Bb/D Bb Cm Ab

              Cm Bb/D Bb Cm Ab Ab Bb Gm Ab Eb
This river is wild



And cars are everywhere
Raisin' dust at the fairground
I don't think I ever seen so many headlights
But there's somethin' pullin' me
The circus and the crew
Well they're just passin' through
Makin' sure the merry still goes 'round
But it's a long, long, long way down

Transpose it down 1/2 a step and put capo on the first fret. Much easier to play, in my opinion

Or transpose down 3 and put capo on 3, excellent tab otherwise, I think I've figured out the outro (chords as played with capo on 3):

C
And cars are everywhere
Raisin' dust at the fairground
F C

G Am
But there's somethin' pullin' me
C
The circus and the crew
Em

Makin' sure the merry still goes 'round
C G C
