Beautiful song. This is for the album version. I think it's quite right.
This is my first tab, I hope you understand everything ;)
It's best if you try to listen to the song to get the timing right. 

Standard tuning
Capo on 2

CHORDS:
       EADGBe
    Em:033000
     C:x32010
     G:320003
  G/F#:2x0003

This is the general riff for the verse:
He varies it a bit throughout the song, sometimes he just plays a 
normal C chord without the variation. Listen to the song to get a bit of a feeling of it.
You can of course just strum the basic chords if you want.

LYRICS

[Intro] Em C G  Em C G

[Verse]
          Em             C
Children, Broadripple is burning
        G
And the girls are gettin' sick
           Em             C
Of huffin' glue up in the bathroom
           G
While your boyfriends pick up chicks
                Em
And darling I'm lost
            C               G
I heard you whispering that night in fountain square
                 Em              C                    G
The trash filled streets made me wish we were heading home.

              Em              C
And there was love inside the basement
           G
Where that woman used to lie
     Em              C
In a sleeping bag we shared
         G
Upon the floor almost every night
                Em
And darling I'm drunk
     C                 G
everything that I have loved is turned to stone
             Em      C         G
So pack your bag and come back home.

[Chorus]
        Em
And I'm wasted
        C
You can taste it
      G       G/F#    Em
Don't look at me that way
               C         Em
'cause I'll be hanging from a rope
       C         G/F#   Em    
I will haunt you like a ghost.

[Instrumental]
(Em) C G
 Em  C G

[Verse]
      Em          C
If my woman was a fire
           G
She'd burn out before I wake
         Em                 C
And be replaced by pints of whiskey
    G
Cigarettes, and outer space
            Em
If somebody moves
     C                     G
everything you thought you had will go to shit
            Em         C       G
We've got a lot, don't ever forget that.

      Em               C
And I wrote this on an airplane
          G
Where the people looked like eggs
           Em             C
And when a woman that you loved was gone
        G
She was bombing east Japan
                  Em
And don't fucking move
            C                     G
'cause everything you thought you have will go to shit
            Em         C              G
We've got a lot, don't you dare to forget that.

[Chorus]
        Em
And I'm wasted
        C
You can taste it
      G       G/F#    Em
Don't look at me that way
               C         Em
'cause I'll be hanging from a rope
       C         G/F#   Em    
I will haunt you like a ghost.

[Outro]
        Em
And I'm wasted
        C
You can taste it.
      G       G/F#    Em
Don't look at me that way
               C         Em
'cause I'll be hanging from a rope
       C         G/F#   Em    
I will haunt you like a ghost.
