This is definitely not 100% accurate but it should help and this is really how I 
play the song just by myself on guitar if I'm not playing along with the song but 
I'll update the tab once a studio version is released for a more accurate tab!

Links to where the song was learnt from:

1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfFHv7CplXc

2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SalqwHJwg6c&feature=related

If you see a G7 in the chorus then that can be played as an F (on lower strings) as seen in the 
first link when Drake plays guitar in the chorus.

Corrections would be really helpful and appreciated!

Intro (supposed to be piano only):
G**

Verse:
G5                                  (F#5)
Single room in a cheap part of town
G5
And the elevators broken down
  (B5)C5
So I walk up the stairs
         C5
No one cares about the rent
                             (A5)G5
When your playing as little as me
                                      (F#5)
Dirty dishes got a stain on my shirt
G5
I eat alone and I'm outta of work
    (B5) C5
Tell me what did you think?
C5
I'm the same, haven't change
                                Em
Just been going by a different name

Pre-chorus:
         B7
What a waste
          G            N/C
But I'm coming back to say

Chorus:
      G*              G7          (B5) 
I'm no big shot, big town, big money
Em7              
Off to buy a jet 
       C                    (A5) G*
Fly it all around the country
                   G7
Sometimes when the weather's right
(B5)Em7                         C        (Cm)
I sail it to the ocean and stay overnight
     G*
Well I went for broke
     G7
The last time we spoke
    Em7                      N/C
Now I'm coming back here to say
                        G*  G7  Em7 C
Everything is going my way
                             G* G7 Em7 C
Well everything is going my way

Verse:
G5                                (F#5)
I grab the bus from the damp hotel
G5
I grab the things that I'm ready to sell
    (B5)   C5             (B5)      
That I'll want out of time
C5
All the things that I loved
                           (A5)  G5
All the memories that use to be mine
                                         (F#5)
They're gone, yeah, I've thrown them away
G5                                (B5)C5
They're gone, and I'm gonna mess up today
                           Em
Will you ask another day?

        B7
What a waste

Well I'm coming back to say

Off to buy a jet 
        C                    (A5) G*

Sometimes when the weather's right

I sail it to the ocean stay overnight
