First I must say, it's sad that this song more famous than it is. I discovered it 
myself last summer, and fell in love with it. So I decided to learn it. First the 
tab, and then I wanted to play it with chords, just try to get the sound of it. 
I'm not sure if it's 100% correct, but it sounds ok in my ears.

What you need:
A guitar in standard tuning 
A capo placed on the 2nd fret

Strumming pattern: I use D-D-U-U-D 


If you listen to the song he quite often builds up from a Em to a G chord. 
So if you want to add that part, well he does is the following on your lowest E-string.
E:|0-2-3 and then play the G-chord.

Feel free to correct me, send me a pm or leave a msg in the comments section and 
I'll try to fix the wrong part(s). I know the chordsplacements aren't 100% 
accurate, but I've done it by ear from the way I remember the song, so bare with me. ;)

Oh, and FYI, I got the lyrics from a random site, and from what I've checked, he 
uses different lyrics on almost every recording I've heard. Not much I can do am I afraid : )

Intro: F-E7-Am-F-F-E7-Am

F               E7           Am                     F     
Well I used to walk along the opposite side of the road 
F         E7                 Am
and made others get out of my way
F          E7                 Am                    F
I used to think that I could sit and wait for the times 
F          E7                 Am 
but I know I should meet them halfway


Am          F            F      E7
I'm halfway home and I'm on my own
Am          F                 F             E7
I'm halfway there and I don't care, I don't mind
Am                F           F                             E7
I plan to leave here after supper time, that's when traffic is light, all I 
Am                 F                F           E7     Am
need is a sign and I'll be alright. I'll be fine

F              E7                      Am                      F
Well I used to think that i could just sleep and then I would dream
F          E7                        Am
And everything it would just come to me
F        E7          Am                  F
Until I woke one day without anything to eat 
F            E7                   Am
Lying on the opposite side of the street


Am          F             F              E7
I'm halfway home and I'm still out on my own
Am          F                 F             E7
I'm halfway there and I don't care, I don't mind
                Am              F        F
Because it ain't my time not to stay or say
             E7               Am                F        F
Well I can't say, but you can bet that i will play my heart out
            E7
I'll won't lay. 

F          E7                     Am                     F
I used to think that I could just sit and wait for the times
F                        E7    Am
But I know I gotta meet them halfway

Am           F             F                E7
I'm halfway home I tried running with the flow
Am           F               F                   E7
I'm halfway there. Ain't it funny how everybody seems to care
Am                     F                               F                
I planned to get there around supper time their serving up bread and wine
E7        Am                     F                    F
All I needed was a sign and I guess I'll be alright.
Am                   F             F              E7
I'll be fine, I'll be fine, I'll be alright, I'll be alright.

Am                         F                          F          E7
It seems to be a running theme about being fine and alright but I don't mind.

Am          F      F    E7
I'll be fine
         Am
I'll be fine
