Lyrics:

Gm  F  D   C
Ah  Ah Ah  Ah

Gm  F  D   C   A7
Ah  Ah Ah  Ah  Ah

     D         G/C             G/B    Bb C            D     G/C G/B Bb C
In a white room    with black curtains     near the stations

            D    G/C           G/B      Bb C         D      G/C G/B Bb C
Blackroof country   , no gold pavements,     tired starlings,

        D    G/C          G/B     Bb C            D       G/C G/B Bb C
Silver horses   run down moonbeams      in your dark eyes.

           D    G/C          G/B    Bb C         D      G/C G/B Bb C
Dawnlight smiles   on your leaving,       my contentment.

      C             G             Bb          A
I'll wait in this place where the sun never shines.

 C            G                Bb     C         C     D
Wait in this place where the shadows run from themselves.


You said no strings could secure you at the stations.
Platform ticket, restless diesels, goodbye windows.
I walked into such a sad time at the station.
As I walked out felt my own need just beginning.
I'll wait in the queue when the trains come back
I'll wait for you where the shadows run from themselves


Gm  F  D   C
Ah  Ah Ah  Ah

Gm  F  D   C   A7
Ah  Ah Ah  Ah  Ah

At the party she was kindness in the hard crowd
Consolation from the old wound now forgotten
Yellow tigers crouched in jungles in her dark eyes
She's just dressing goodbye windows, tired starlings
I'll sleep in this place with the lonely crowd,
Lie in the dark where the shadows run from themselves

Gm  F  D   C
Ah  Ah Ah  Ah

Gm  F  D   C   A7
Ah  Ah Ah  Ah  Ah

I've seen better transcription of the intro. You may have it the way Eric Clapton plays it, but by yourself you need to complete chords to get a fuller sound.
