"The Beach"
set tempo
2nd fret
This is based off another chord tab, modified because the chord diagrams this site 
gives are weird.

Em is ok 022000
E is 022300
B7 should be x3230x
A7 x02020
D7 xx0212

capo 2nd fret

There's a hole in the roof, and the rain's comin' down 
The roads are all flooded, there's no way back to town
            Em                      G            A7
And this ship we came in on, has just run aground
                Em                                  B7           Em
You know fate has a funny way of comin' around

The memories we've buried, have now taken seed
When spring time comes they'll turn into weeds
And they'll creep through your window to smother your dreams
you know fate has a funny way of comin' around

EM to E

              Am                        G
Oh they'll carve our names like scripture
To the souls of their feet
        G                      B7
Every footprint that they take
        Em          Em*
It will tell of our deed
            Em                   G          Am
Drowning lies, oh they're following me
Till the flow tide comes to swallow
the beach

Your chords are spot on, but I haven't seen anyone here post the third verse so here it is:

This bottle of bourbon's now dry as a bone,
It drank us all up and left us alone.
Now we've sensed what's to come*, but we can't choke it down
You know that fate has a funny way of comin' 'round.

I have also seen that third line as "Now we've since switched to skull pot"

I have also seen versions where he sings "Until the rain on the following night" instead of "Drowning lies..."

You may want to rate the tab now too:
