(REPEAT RIFF TWICE)

FIRST VERSE:
I'm sorry, mother
I'm sorry I let you down
Well these days I'm fine
No, these days I tend to lie

I'll take the west train
Just by the side of Amsterdam
Just by my left brain
Just by the side of the tin man

SECOND VERSE:
I'm sorry, brother
I'm sorry I let you down
Well, these days you're fine
No, these days you tend to lie

You'll take the west train
Just by the side of Amsterdam
Just by your left brain
Just by the side of the tin man

e|------------------------------------|
b|-----------12-12--------------------|
g|-------13-------13-13---------------|
d|--14-14--14-------------------------|

But I keep coming up short

Your time will come
If you wait for it, if you wait for it

But the rain won't fall for the both of us
The sun won't shine on the both of us
Believe me when I say
That I wouldn't have it any other way

e|------------------------------------|
b|-----------12-12--------------------|
g|-------13-------13-13---------------|
d|--14-14--14-------------------------| (repeat until the end of the song)

E|------------------------------------|

CHORUS:
Your time will come
If you wait for it, if you wait for it
It's hard, believe me, I've tried

But I won't wait much longer
'cause these walls they're crashing down
But I won't wait much longer
'cause these walls they're crashing down
And I keep coming up short

Not sure if my ears are playing up, but this seems to sound better for the riff (at least the first one):


e|-------11-11-14-14-11-11----11-|
B|-------------------------14----|
G|-13-13-------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|


e|-------------14-14-------------|
B|-------12-12-------12-12----12-|
G|-13-11-------------------13----|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|


e|-------------14-14-------------|
B|-------------------------------|
G|-13-11-13-13-------13-13-13-13-| x2
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|


The first note of bars 2-4 sounds slightly palm muted too.
