One of the best songs ever, it first grabbed my attention on the film Fear and Loathing
in Las Vegas (also an amazing book!)

D                       Am        
There you stood on the edge of your feather
G            A   
Expecting to fly
D                Am  
While I laughed, I wondered whether 
G                A D 
I could wave goodbye
G                   C
Knowin' that you'd gone
Dm             G     
By the summer it was healing
C                F
We had said goodbye
Dm                   G
All the years we'd spent with feeling
C             F
Ended with a cry
Fmaj7 Cmaj7               F
Babe,       ended with a cry
Fmaj7 Cmaj7               D
Babe,       ended with a cry

D           Am
I tried so hard to stand
       G                        A 
As I stumbled and fell to the ground 
D           Am  
So hard to laugh as I fumbled
      G                     A D
And reached for the love I found
 G               C
Knowin' it was gone
Dm           G    
If I never lived without you
 C                F
Now you know I'd die
Dm           G
If I never said I loved you
 C                F
Now you know I'd try
Fmaj7 Cmaj7                   F
Babe,       now you know I'd try
Fmaj7 Cmaj7             F
Babe,       now you know I'd try
Fmaj7 Cmaj7

If you're not playing in the key of the recording, these chords seem spot on. You must have to capo it somewhere or transpose it to play along with the original. Other than than, spectacular tab.
