I play the main pattern through the verses (obviously).
Riff 1 is during the long pauses between lines, repeated twice.
Then back to the main verse.  A la Storytellers

[Main]                              [Riff 1]
Come out, come out, no use in hiding
[Main]                              [Riff 1]
Come out, come out, can you not see?
[Main]                                       [Riff 1]
Theres no place here what were you expecting?
[Main]                            [Riff 1]
No room for both, just room for me

G?                             [Riff 1]
So you will lay your arms down
G?                         [Riff 1]
Yes I will call this home

Away away
You have been banished
Your land is gone and given me
And here I will spread my wings
Yes I will call this home

 Bm
Whats this you say?
                    G?
You feel a right to remain? Then stay
                    [Riff1]
And I will bury you
 Bm
Whats this you say?
                           G?
Your fathers spirit still lives in this place?
                        [Riff 1]
Well, I will silence you

Here's the hitch, your horse is leaving
Don't miss your boat its leaving now
And as you go I will spread my wings
Yes I will call this home

I have no time
To justify to you. Fool you're blind
Now move aside for me
All I can say
To you my new neighbor is you must move on
Or I will bury you

          G?                  D5
Now as I rest my feet by this fire
                   G?                             D5
Those hands once warmed here, well I have retired them
                     G?                           D5
And I can breathe my own air and I can sleep more soundly
  Bm
Upon these poor souls
            G?                       [Main]
I'll build Heaven and call it home
Cause your all dead now

Bb/D                    D5
And I live with my justice
And I live with my greedy need
I'm gonna live with no mercy
And I'll live with my frenzied feeding
I live with my hatred
And I'll live with my jealousy
I'm gonna live with the notion
That I don't need anyone but me....

Don't drink the water
Don't drink the water
There's blood in the water
Don't drink the water

Almost spot on man, just missing a few of the embellishments Dave throws in there, nothing major tho.
