E B B   F# (x2)
E B G#m F# (x2)

[Verse 1]
All these kinds of places
Make it seem like it's been ages
   G#m                                    F#
Tomorrow's sun with buildings scrape the sky
I love this country dearly
I can feel the lighter clearly
     G#m                            F#
But never thought I'd be alone to try

Once I was outside that station
Selling red and white carnations
G#m                               F#
You were still alone, my wife and I
Before we marry, save my money
Brought my dear wife over
       G#m                            F#
Now I want to bring my family state side

[Chorus 1]
E                      B
To rock the boat they sail a while
Then scatter cross the course
E                  B             F#
Once a year I'll see them for a week or so at most
          E       B       G#m       F#
I took a walk

[Verse 2]
Practice isn't perfect
With the market cuts and loss
     G#m                                  F#
I remind myself that times could be much worse
My wife won't ask me questions
It was not so much to ask
            G#m                           F#
And she'll never flaunt around an empty purse

Once my money lacking
Just to stay a couple nights
        G#m                                 F#
In the silence she will stay the rest of her life
   E                                    B
I watch my little children, play some board game in the kitchen
       G#m                              F#
And I sit and pray they never feel my strife.

[Chorus 2]
     E               B                 F#
But then my partner called to say the pension funds were gone
    E                B
He made some bad investments
Now the counts are overdrawn
          E       B       G#m       F#
I took a walk

[Verse 3]
C#m              D#m            E
Honey it's this loan I think I borrowed just to much
        C#m          D#m          
We had taxes we had bills
We had a lifestyle of fun
       C#m               D#m        
And tonight I swear I'll come home
               E                 F#
And we'll make love like we're young
       C#m               D#m
And tomorrow you'll cook dinner
        E                 F#
For the neighbors and the kids
         C#m              D#m
We could rent the part of socialists
     E                F#
And all their damn taxes
       C#m          D#m
You'll see I am no criminal

[Chorus 3]
    E                F#
I'm down on both bad ends
    C#m             D#m
I'm just too much a coward
     E               F#
To admit when I'm in need
          E       B       G#m       F#
I took a walk

End on E

Excellent tab, with B barre on the seventh it sounds awesome

Transpose the chords down a major third and use a capo at 4. B - G, it sounds much better and uses more of the strings, hence resonance.

Almost but not quite

Verse chords are

E, E, G#m, F#

As in, the 2nd chord isn't a B major - this chord is hinted at by the bass moving down to a B note, but you can also still hear the root and third of the E major chord (the E and G# notes, but there's no D# or F# of the B major.

That resolution to the 1st(the B major) only comes in the chorus.

Great writing.
