Tabbed by Sam Kurcab

Ok I saw another version of this song on this site and didn't like it as much as my own,
I decided to post what i think is the correct version. Can be played with a capo on 2nd
and the chords transposed down a whole step for ease of playing, but i think it sounds 
when played in all barre chords. I also play both E and F# at their highest frets
for the E and 9th for the F#.) Anyways great song, enjoy.

Intro: D5, C5, D5, C5, Bb5

I've tabbed out a bit of the electric too but i'm not so sure about the accuracy of it.
think the little riff in the intro is something like:

e--6-8---------------|
B-------4h6----------|
G-------------6------|
D-----------------7--|
A--------------------|
E--------------------|

 B
Green world loves the chloroform
C#m
Front porch in the thunderstorm
 E               F#            B
Controlled chaos, confused energy
 B
Stop reading the weather charts
 C#m
Stop counting the playing cards
 E               F#             B
There's no system, there's no guarantee
           E                       F#
That the love you feel you carry inside
         B
Can be passed
         E                          F#
But you try and all you do is just talk
        G#m
To your past
                  C#m         F# (play this one at 2nd fret)
Ask how are you getting on, alone?

 B
Some wander the wilderness
 C#m
Some drink cosmopolitans
 E                 F#                 B
Some quote science, some glean astroplanes
 B
I can't tell where the canvas stops
 C#m
Homesick as an astronaut
 E            F#               B
Keep drifting, still can't explain
         E                      F#
How the love we feel we carry inside
         B
Can be passed
        E                        F#
See a brother in the gutter you reach
         G#m
Out your hand
                  C#m         F# (at 2nd)
Ask how are you getting on, alone?

Solo: still working on this part i think it starts like:

e--4-4-8------------|
B---------5-------6-|
G------------6h8----|
D-------------------|
A-------------------|
E-------------------|

(End with intro)

 B
What gauge measures miracles?
 C#m
And whose heart beats electrical?
 E               F#                 B
We feign sickness, with all modern joy
 B
But even western medicine
 C#m
It couldn't save Danny Callahan
     E          F#              B
Bad bone marrow, a bald little boy
         E                         F#
But the love he feels he carries inside
          B
Can be passed
         E                            F#
He lay still, his mother kissed him goodbye
         G#m
Said "come back!"
            C#m           F#
Where are you going to, alone?
              C#m          F#
Where are you going, all alone?

The F# in the verse I would replace with a C#m
Pretty good though. =)
