A      F#            C#
I'm on loan, Like a christmas tree,
Emaj     Fdim               F#m      Emaj   Dmaj
   chop me down, and dress me up
        Dm                    A         F#m
what if i wind up in the gutter
 D            Emaj
        or a garbage truck

Verse progression again:

A F#m | C#m | E Fdim | F#m E | Dmaj Dm | A F#m | D E | E

A             F#m                C#m
   Turn the clocks back to a memory,
Emaj           Fdim          F#m     Emaj   Dmaj
    Turn the memory to stone
              Dm                      A               F#m    D
Skip that stone across the brandywine
       E                      EEEEEE
and go back home

play the notes                       (Amaj scale)

                 A G#  F#         E     D   C#         B      E
Cuz the    biiiiiiiiiiiiiiird    you named he left your shoulder
 a long time ago
                  A G#  F#          E     D  C#    B     E
and the baaaaaaaaaaallllll you threw it hit the ground
 (then quietly play)vvvv
   F#m
a long time ago
    E
a long time ago,
    F#m        C#m
a lo-ong time, ago

    Riff on A   then   bass line (EE C# B E EE C# B)
Ahhhh Ahhhh Ahhhh Ahhh Let me go

Then a 4 bar Interlude- Arpegios between A C#m A C#m


A       F#m             C#m
I woke up from a fairy tale
 E               Fdim            F#m    E    D
    Washing curtains in the sink
         Dm                   A   F#m
Living ever after happily
D                 E               EEEEEE build up
What would mother think?

            A (note only, on beats 1 and 3)
I say goodbye to you
            G#
You and your mother to
            F#
And when the train arrives
            G#
and everybody cries
             A
I'll ride the winded air
            G#
that blows your stormy hair
             F#
and blows your cares away
             G#
and waits for yesterday, to say,
I'm coming home

Outro
       A                                               C#m

I had this about half done, so glad someone else did it. I am just way too lazy, and quite without the time.

I want to post or [tab]
