3/4 time, smoothly played.

C       Am7    Em     G
Fred sits alone at his desk in the dark
C       Am7    Em     G
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'
Am7             F 
Twenty-five years he's worked at the paper
C               G Gsus4 G
A man's here to take him downstairs
C       F      G   C
And I'm sorry, Mr Jones it's time

C       Am7    Em     G
There was no party, there were no songs
C       Am7    Em     G
'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 nAm7e
C               G
And life barrels on like a runaway train
Am7             F
Where the passengers change they don't change anything
C               G Gsus4 G
You get off; someone else can get on
C       F       G  C
And I'm sorry, Mr Jones it's time

Am7             Em
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     Em     Am7    Em
F       Em     Am7    Em
F       Em      G     D    Dsus4    D

C       Am7    Em     G
Fred gets his paints out and goes to the basement
C       Am7    Em     G
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
Am7             F
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   C
And I'm sorry, Mr Jones it's time


I've put the chords all the way through 'cos it bugs me when you only get them for 
the first verse and have to keep checking back. I've also added the chords for the 
piano solo in the middle for those who want them - these haven't been included on 
any of the previous submissions. Enjoy!

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.
