Intro: Riff

For the verse I play the chord Em then walk up to the G through the D/F# then down from 
G through D/F# to the Em

          Em              D/F#    G
There's a note underneath the front door
     D/F#Em                G     D/F#
that I wrote twenty years ago
        Em            D/F# G
Yellow paper and a faded picture
      Am            (Riff)
And a secret in an envelope



           Em         D/F#    G
There's no reasons No excuses
        D/F# Em          G    D/F#
There's no secondhand alibis
          Em             D/F# G
Just some black ink on some blue lines
       Am              (Riff)
and a shadow you won't recognize

RIFF

       Em                G
In the mean time I'll be waiting
            Em              G    D/F#
for twenty years and twenty more
        Em          G
I'll be praying for redemption
         Am                 Em   D/F#
and your note underneath my door
         Am               (Riff)
And your note underneath my door

I figured it out myself and took some parts from a YouTube tutorial. I think it sounds exactly like it. Maybe you are playing it with the wrong strumming pattern because I am 99% sure it is right.
