I couldn't find the right chords to this song on here,  
so I thought I'd just post them.
I hope I didn't make any mistakes. 
I had difficulty describing the rhythm in English, 
so I tried it with symbols instead: H(down) V(up) Hx (mute).

H Hx V V H V 

I hope that is easy to understand.It's an easy rhythm for beginners, 
the strings are muted with the hand playing downwards but 
resting on the strings instead of letting them ring.

Start with Em once, let it ring.

Verse 1:
Em                     C
    Well  I'm sitting alone
D        G               C
 with my guitar slightly out of tune
    Am7     H7             Em
and it's a lovely night in june.
                     C
And I try to write a song
D      G            C
With a happy summer melody
     Am7      H7                  Em
like I have tried so many times before 

Verse2:
                   C                 D
But I can't really tell you, what is wrong
                   G                  C
but all that comes out is another sad song

              Am7                H7
maybe it's because I slept too long
           Em
and nobody called me on the phone.
               C                    D
Maybe I should hit town, have some fun
                  G                       C
do small-talk and drink, 'til the morning sun 
               Am7              H7
maybe I should buy a brand-new dress
           Em
or learn a useful game like chess. 


Interlude: C D G C Am7 H7 Em (2x)


Verse 3 (same as Verse 2):
No I can't really tell you, 
what is wrong
but all that comes out is another sad song
maybe it's because I slept too long
and nobody called me at the phone
Maybe I should hit town have some fun
do small-talk and drink, 'til the morning sun 
maybe I should buy a brand-new dress
or learn a useful game like chess.


         C          D          G
Another lonely night turns to day
             C            D        G
with another hair of mine, turning gray
                  C
No I can't really tell you
D            G         Em
just what is wrong, my dear,
                     C
but still what comes out is
D           G4(2x) G
another sad song.

The first C in the verse should be an Am. Furthermore, H7 does not have to be played as a barré chord, you can play it much simpler.. x-2-1-2-0-2 Except for that excellent tab including the strumming pattern.
