Special credits to e_mericana, who made the original tab upon which I based this 
version with chords.

[Intro] A   F#m   D   x2

            A
It's been a long day living with this
            F#m     E         D
It's been a long time since I felt so sick
         A       
I took a long walk straight back home
           F#m        E       D
I could've walked back to San Francisco
          A
I used to long for time alone
          F#m      E       D
I used to long for a place of my own
       A
And I'm losing faith in everything
    F#m      E         D
I'm lost, so lost, I'm lost at sea, you see

A   F#m   D   x2

          A
I used to long for broken bones
          F#m        E         D
I used to long for a casket to call my own
       A
I never had a problem facing fear
        F#m   E        D
But I'm done, over and done, my dear, and

F#m      D
Oh mercy me
    A               E
God bless catastrophe
        F#m       D
There's no way in hell
      A            E
We'll ever live to see through this so
F#m       E      D
Drive yourself insane tonight
     F#m      E     D
It's not that far away and
       F#m       E         D         A
I just filled up your tank earlier today

E   A   D
(Yeah!)

 ( C#   B   A )
[This quick progression is there on the album, but I'd skip it in an open-chord acoustic 
and just hold the D a bit longer or something.]

            A
It's been a long day living with this
            F#m       E       D
It's been a long time since I felt so sick
        A
I took a long walk straight back home
           F#m         E  D
I could've walked back to Chicago
          A
I used to long for time alone
          F#m      E       D
I used to long for a place of my own
        A
And I've lost faith in everything
    F#m      E         D
I'm lost, so lost, I'm lost without you

F#m      D
Oh mercy me
    A               E
God bless catastrophe
        F#m       D
There's no way in hell
      A            E
We'll ever live to see through this so
F#m       E      D
Drive yourself insane tonight
     F#m      E     D
It's not that far away and
       F#m       E         D         A

E   A   D

 ( C#   B   A )

A   F#m   D   x2

   F#m       E      D
So drive yourself insane tonight
     F#m      E     D
It's not that far away and
       F#m       E         D         A
I just filled up your tank earlier today

E   A    E   A   D
(Yeah! Yeah!)

My first submission and I forget to include my name? >_<

Anyhoo, it seems some words are missing ("this version chords"?); sorry about that, but 'twas not my fault. Must have something to do with UG's formatting.

Yes, UG does that for some reason or other. It's happened on all of my submitted tabs recently.
