C     Am7     Em7     G7

[Verse 1]
C          Am7         Em           G7
Fred sits alone at his desk in the dark
           C             Am7         Em           G7      
There's an awkward young shadow that waits in the hall
       Am7             F               Am7         F
He has cleared all his things and he's put them in boxes
C                        G
Things that remind him: 'Life has been good'
Fmaj7                   Dm11
Twenty-five years he's worked at the paper
  C                          G      Gsus4      G
A man's here to take him downstairs
        C         F     G7   
And I'm sorry, Mr Jones it's 
C     Am7     Em7     G7      
C     Am7     Em7     G7

[Verse 2]
C            Am7    Em            G7
There was no party, there were no songs
          C           Am7           Em         G7
'Cause today's just a day like the day that he started
Am7       F              Am7             F
No one is left here that knows his first name
    C                      G
And life barrels on like a runaway train
          Fmaj7                        Dm11
Where the passengers change they don't change anything
        C                         G     Gsus4     G
You get off; someone else can get on
        C         F     G7   
And I'm sorry, Mr Jones it's
C     Am7     Em7     G7      
C     Am7     Em7     G7

Am                             Em7
Streetlight shines through the shades
        F                      C            G/B
Casting lines on the floor and lines on his face
     F             C
He reflects on the day

Am7     Em7     Am7     Em7
F       Em7     Am      Em7
F       Em  G  D   Dsus4    D

[Verse 3]
C             Am7            Em          G7
Fred gets his paints out and goes to the basement
   C            Am7    Em      G7
Projecting some slides onto a plain white
Am7        F          Am7          F
Canvas and traces it, fills in the spaces
   C                            G
He turns off the slides, and it doesn't look right 
          Fmaj7                      Dm11
Yeah, and all of these bastards have taken his place
        C                  G     Gsus4      G
He's forgotten but not yet gone

        C         F    G
And I'm sorry, Mr Jones
        C         F    G
And I'm sorry, Mr Jones
        C         F     G    Cadd9
And I'm sorry, Mr Jones it's time

Best version on here, thanks! I'd still like to suggest some corrections, which could make it even better, I think. Other than that: good job, real improvement on the other versions.

1. Two chords do not sound right. It is the Am7 and F in the "25 years he's worked at the paper" section and the respective parts in the other verses too. Here's what I hear:
Fmaj7 (1(t)-3-3-2-1-0) and Dm7/11 (x-x-0-2-1-0)

[Fmaj7]Twenty-five years, he's [Dm7/11]worked at the paper"

2. Chord (G) missing in the final turnaround of "And I'm sorry Mr Jones".
And I'm [C]sorry Mr [F]Jones [G]
And I'm [C]sorry Mr [F]Jones
And I'm [C]sorry Mr [F]Jones, [G]it's [C]time

3. It would be really helpful, if the chords were aligned properly with the lyrics.

Forgot: the time signature is 6/8.
