Am              C                       Am
   Four in the morning the sidewalk's asleep
            C         [Riff 2]       G
Dogs on the porch and spiders on the leaf
[Riff 1]       Dm     [Riff 3]        Am 
Shipwrecked by night, sailing through days
[Riff 4] E       E7            Am
Nobody   noticed that slipping away

Csus2/D  Am     Repeat
Am C Am C

Am                C                       Am
   Connecting the dots with thorns in his side
               C            [Riff 2]      G
Boarded up the windows with pain and with pride
[Riff 1]      Dm                       Am 
The music box broken that once was his soul
    [Riff 4]    E        E7             Am
It's sad little song spinning out of control

G [Riff 1]

G               C/G                         G 
  Then came the storm that washed the roads out
                C/G                       G 
Closed both his eyes and pointed straight south
[Riff 1]      Dm                   Am
Second line drums marched into the sea
                     E              Am
While the clouds overhead cried mutiny
                E                    Am
They parted for Cathy and her bitter news
             Dm                   Am
As her words failed, the sky grew dim
             E                       Am
Recalled how close to that exit I've been

Am   C/G   x3
G [Riff 1] Dm
Am E E7

C/G               Am   C/G                Am
    Ours not to reply,     ours not to reason why
C                      G
  Well, the news about William
    F          C         C              F
The lifeline resist, the desire for the breeze
The thorns in his side

Thanks, exactly the version I was hoping to find here. I think you are missing Riff 4 though
