Hey people...due to lack of Elbow tabs out there...I thought I'd give it a shot.
Bear with me, and if you have any corrections...just email me: lord.luke@jamoria.co.uk

Alternatively you could play chords, which basically uses the same finger positions, just strum:

Chords used
C-332010
Fmaj7-x33210

      C
Been climbing trees I've skinned my knees

                                      Fmaj7
my hands are black the sun is going down

      C
She scruffs my hair in the kitchen steam

                                         Fmaj7
She's listening to the dream I weaved today

C
Crosswords through the bathroom door

                                              Fmaj7
while someone sings the theme-tune to the news

         C
and my sister buzzes through the room leaving perfume in the air

      Fmaj7
and that's what triggered this.

                        C
I come back here from time to time

	           Fmaj7
I shelter here some days.

C-Fmaj7

    C
A high-back chair. He sits and stares

                                          Fmaj7
A thousand yards and whistle's marching-band

C
Kneeling by and speaking up

                                      Fmaj7
He reaches out and I take a massive hand.

C
Disjointed tales that flit between

                                     Fmaj7
short trousers and a full dress uniform


         C
And he talks of people ten years gone  like I've known them all my life

       Fmaj7
Like scattered black 'n' whites....

                         C
I come back here from time to time

	         Fmaj7
I shelter here some days.

                        C
I come back here from time to time

	    Fmaj7
I shelter here some days.

C-Fmaj7 TO END

Ok, enjoy, and get picking...
Lol, this is an endurance song- your hand is very tired after this...
