This is Paul Weller's cover of a Gordon Lightfoot song.

It could have ended in tears of the very wrong kind. But no. Weller makes a marvellous job of it.

Eight great verses. Standard tuning.

The most difficult part is to get a nice lilting rhythm on it, including the 
little roll on and off the E major to Esus4 at the end of each alternate line.


Intro
=====

E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E 

Abm  Gbm E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E


verse 1
=======

                     Abm
In the early morning rain

Gbm                     E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
    With a dollar in my hand

                 Gbm
And aching in my heart

B7                        E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
   And my pockets full of sand


verse 2
=======

                    Abm
I'm a long way from home

Gbm                              E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
    And Lord I miss my loved one so

                     Gbm
In the early morning rain

B7                  E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
   With no place to go


verse 3
=======

                     Abm
Out on runway number nine

Gbm                      E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
    Seven o seven set to go

                          Gbm
But I'm stuck here on the ground

B7                     E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
   Where the cold wind blows


verse 4
=======
                      Abm
Now the liquor tasted good

Gbm                        E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
    And the women all were fast

                  Gbm
There she goes my friend

B7                          E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
   She'll be rolling now at last

Abm  Gbm E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E



verse 5
=======
                        Abm
Hear the mighty engines roar

Gbm                        E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
    See the silver bird on high

                        Gbm
She's away and westward bound

B7                             E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
   Far above the clouds she'll fly


verse 6
=======

                             Abm
Where the morning rain don't fall

Gbm                    E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
    And the sun always shines 

                         Gbm
She'll be flying over my home

B7                       E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
   In about three hours' time



Inst 2
======

Abm  Gbm E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E



verse 7
=======

                          Abm
This old airport's got me down

Gbm                         E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
    It's no earthly good to me

                          Gbm
Cos I'm stuck here on the ground

B7                         E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
   Cold and drunk as I can be


verse 8
=======

                     Abm
You can't jump a jet plane

Gbm                        E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
    Like you can a freight train

                     Gbm
So I'd best be on my way

B7            E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E-Esus4 E
   In the early morning rain

Great tab for playing along with the cd. I think you really nailed this one. Thanks!
Tip for fast E-Esus4 switch: Just add your pinky to the E-shape.
