I believe the other tab out there had pretty much everything perfect, but the chord 
progression listed can be a bit tricky for beginners.
I found that playing with a capo for this particular song is much much easier, and after 
watching a live version of it, it seems this is how it was played anyway.

Capo: 5th fret

Intro:
Am   C   Dm   F (2x)
Am   C   Dm   F (for this Am chord, I like strike it just once, and a bit harder to go 
with the guitar riff, but not necessary)
Am   C   Dm   F

Verse: Same as intro
Am   C   Dm   F

Again, you can strum harder when the riff sounds, just for a bit of variation.


Bridge between these two lines:
Don't you know they're gonna' save my soul
(simply strum Am until the verse chord progression begins on the next line)
I can't hang around with you like this my friend


Chorus:

I set out to disappear
And out there I found a new home
But listen Jack, you're on the wrong side of the tracks
At least now I don't have to walk it all alone

Am   G   F   C
Em      Dm    
Am   G   F   C
Em      E7    

If you don't want to, or can't do a barred F, you can get away with playing it as such:
F
1 (index)
1 (index)
2 (middle)
3 (ring)
