intro
C   Em

  C
To my aching glow
                     Em
You got a hold of me now...
         C
How you rendered slow
                 Em
But harder than hell to my ground

                               D
I'm looking for my old mans' shoes
                         C
I'm kicking off these old town blues...

C
Don't leave me here
                     Em
Cos' I just won't survive
               C
There's a raven hovering
                       Em
But a-he's keeping me alive...

                        D
I've known him all my life
                                C
He's the spirit of a young man mourning
                        D
But like the shadow of a carving knife
                                C
He's not the danger but the warning sign

And we're kicking off easy

C
Hey....
                        Em
Oh I can't seem to move
   C
I'm paralysed....
                Em
I'm chocking on my holy mood
                        D
Cos I wanna be an old man too
                C
I wanna be a role model to my kids
                        D
I wanna teach them how to love
                        C
But you gotta show me how to live
And we're kicking off easy

C                 Em
ohhhhhhhh - yheaaa
C                 Em
ohhhhhhhh - yheaaa

D              C
         - yheaaa
D              C
Oh nooooo- yheaaa

D--2--2-2---2--2-2-------------
A-3--3---3-3--3---3------------
E---0--------0-----------------

Em chord:
e------------------------------
B------------------------------
G------0--------0--------------
D--2--2-2---2--2-2-------------
A-2--2---2-2--2---2------------

@boukevdberg: I think you're close but the rhythm is a bit off, this is what I hear:

C chord (palm mute) x4:
e--------------------------
B--------------------------
G-----------0--------------
D-----2---2---2------------
A---3---3-------3----------
E-0------------------------

Em chord (palm mute) x4:
e--------------------------
B--------------------------
G-----------0--------------
D-----2---2---2------------
A---2---2-------2----------
E-0------------------------

Pre-chorus riff (not muted):
e-----------------------
B-----------------------
G--------0-----------0--
D----4-----------2------
A--5---5-------3---3----
E-----------------------
