I've seen Special Patrol play live a few times so I'm fairly sure that this tab is 
correct but I'm open to suggestions and corrections.

P.S. Hopefully some more Special Patrol tabs coming...

NOTE - THE C/B CHORD REALLY INVOLVES WALKING DOWN YOUR 3RD FINGER FROM THE C TO THE Am

G D

C
They've been asking,
                  C/B  Am     C/B
What you've been doing lately,
C
Where have you been?

G                                                    C
So you were standing there all alone on the corner in your coat,
                        C/B    Am
I only ever took you with some salt,
                          C/B              C
The jacket keeps you warm but you're still cold,
                                    G
I know there's no point in changing Emily.

I finally found you washed up in your boat,
With streams of tears and bruises round your throat,
No longer self-assured and over-bored,
The blinkers never fitted wide-eyed Emily.

They've been asking,
What you've been doing lately,
Where have you been?

I know you think you've seen everything they sent us here to see,
I hate to see you lose hope for meaning,
There's a line to tread without getting too deep,
There's a lot of water to tread in the open sea, you'll find,

We lose our way so we can find it back,
When we return we return to a clearer path,
The lessons in the soil that's on the track,
And you know that we'd always love to have you back.

They've been asking,
What you've been doing lately,
Where have you been?
Where are you hiding?

So come with me,
And always try to keep your head held high,
And treat the ones you love like you might die,
Like it might be the last day you're alive,
'Cause there are no second chances 'round here and you'll see

The skeletons in the closet where they hang,
The ghosts that walk your hallways in their gangs,
The clowns that laughed at you when you first sang,
No longer hold no relevance around here.

They've been asking,
What you've been doing lately,
Where have you been?
Where are you hiding?

So much promise,
Thrown upon us this year,
I need you here,
Emily.

When I play it, I do it like this:

|--0--0--0--|
|--1--1--1--|
|--0--0--2--|
|--2--0--2--|
|--3--2--0--|
|--0--0--0--|

I've tried your method and I don't think there's a big difference.
