==Verse 1==

C
Rats they run across the field, crows rest in the tree

G                                      C
Barking madly at each other

C
Standing from the rooftop, I scream 'Won't you bark for me?'

G                                                  C
As you turn your back and fly away

Riff 1                                                 C
Caught on the fence you've left behind

Riff 1                                                   C
Dive into an empty blue (?), I've tried

G                                               Intro (first half)
Oh I've tried, oh I've tried writing

F
With nothing in return



==Verse 2==

C
When the wind that freed me from the roots that tied me down

G                                                        C
Now I need them back for comforting

C
Carvings that we left up, scarred up on this tree

G                                                          C
Lingering of thoughts you left with me

Riff 1                                            C
Calling the phone that you ignore

Riff 1                                                         C
Slowly walking backwards from your door

G                                                     Intro Riff (first half)
Oh I've tried, now we're done fighting

F
It's time that you return



==Bridge==

Riff 1, C
Riff 1, C, G

==Verse 3==

C
Candlelit, small light inside your window that I see

G                                                           C
Hoping that the light still shines for me

C
Standing from the curbside, I scream 'Please come back'

G                                                    C
As you turn your back and fly away

Riff 1                                                  C
Groundhogs digging with their claws

Riff 1                                            C
Buying their loves with dirty paws

G                                             Intro riff (first half)
Oh I've tried, there's no igniting

My head is in the dirt

Good tab, just three suggestions:
The first hammer-on in the intro is from the 2nd to 3rd fret on the d string.
The song uses an Fm
and the chorus riff can be played in an F chord, making it easier to strum/pick out the line
