[Intro]
Bb Bbsus4 Bb Bbsus4

[Verse 1]
Bb                F
Far across the ocean
Bbsus4            Bb
In China or Japan
Bb              F
People live so differently
Bbsus4            Bb
But what I'm trying to understand

[Chorus]
Cm                          F
Is when you're struck with trouble
Bb            Bb/A          Gm
When you feel the pain of life
Cm
Oh please tell me
F               Bb    
How do you get by?
Bbsus4 Bb Bbsus4

[Verse 2]
Bb                F
Today you are not with me
Bbsus4            Bb
No, you had to go
Bb                F
But you left with him so quickly
Bbsus4            Bb
As if you wanted me to know

[Chorus]
Cm                          F
That without you I am nothing
Bb            Bb/A          Gm
That without you I would fall
Cm                          F
But now I've learned my lesson
Bb            Bb/A          Gm
So it's time for you to call
Cm
Call me up
F               Bb  
And tell me how to get by
Bbsus4 Bb Bbsus4

[Chorus]
Gm              F          Bbsus4          Bb  Bb/A
Because it raises up from underground
Gm              F          Bbsus4          Bb  Bb/A
Swallows me up pound for pound
Gm              F          Bbsus4          Bb  Bb/A
Dragging me on down to hell
Gm              F          Bbsus4          F   Bb
The way I feel I might as well

[Verse 3]
Bb                F
I've read books on mind and matter
Bbsus4            Bb
On philosophy and art
Bb                F
I've read poems, songs and fables
Bbsus4            Bb
That may tell you about the heart

[Chorus]
Cm                          F
Oh, but when you're struck with trouble
Bb            Bb/A          Gm
When you feel the pain of life
Cm                          F
There's only one thing that I can tell you
Bb            Bb/A          Gm
And you will know this when you fall
Cm                          F
That when you're tired of living
Bb            Bb/A          Gm
It's best to be afraid to die
Cm
So for now
F               Bb
That's how I'll get by
Bbsus4  Bb  Bbsus4

I think there is one chord that is possibly wrong - here:
[Chorus]
Gm !!! F Bbsus4 !!! Bb Bb/A
Dragging me on down to hell
Gm F Bbsus4 F Bb
The way I feel I might as well

not sure what else to play, so i went with the rest.
Please comment if you know what he playes there.
