This is my favorite song off of Pearl Jam's latest album Binaural.  
I've
only had the album for a week, since it was released, but when I heard
this song I had to know how to play it.  I think it is correct, it 
sounds
like it to me :) I havn't yet tabbed the solos but I'll get to it when
I can.

Disclaimer
This is my interpretation of the song and all work has been done by me.

[Verse]
D         Bm                  C
I've used hammers made out of wood.
              A                     D
I have played games with pieces and rules.
       Bm                     C
I've deciphered tricks at the bar,
               A                         D
but now you're gone I havn't figured out why.
                  Bm                      C
I've come up with riddles and jokes about war.
                 A                        D
I've figured out numbers and what they're for.
                Bm                           C
I've understood feelings and I've understood words,
                     A
but how could you be taken away.


[Chorus]

Dmaj7 D   Dmaj7 Dsus2  D
And   wherever  you've gone,
Dmaj7 D   Dmaj7 D  Dmaj7 Bm
and   wherever  we might go.
              A
It don't seem fair,
                D
todays just disappear.
Dmaj7 D       Dmaj7 Dsus2 D
Your  light's reflected   now,
Dmaj7 D Dmaj7 D   Dmaj7 Bm
        Reflected from afar.
            A
We were but stones,
                   D
your light made us stars.


[Bridge]
A C D A


[Verse]
D          Bm
With heavy breath,
           C
awakened regrets,
              A                               D
backpages and days alone that could have been spent,
              Bm            C
together, but we were miles apart,
              A                           D
every inch between us becomes light years now.
              Bm
No time to be void,
                 C
or to save up on life,
                 A
ah you've got to spend it all...


[Chorus]

Dmaj7 D   Dmaj7 Dsus2  D
And   wherever  you've gone,
Dmaj7 D   Dmaj7 D  Dmaj7 Bm
and   wherever  we might go.
              A
It don't seem fair,
                      D
you seemed to like it here.
Dmaj7 D       Dmaj7 Dsus2 D
Your  light's reflected   now,
Dmaj7 D Dmaj7 D   Dmaj7 Bm
        Reflected from afar.
            A
We were but stones,
                   D
your light made us stars.

It don't seem fair,
                D
todays just disappear.

Carlson is correct about the Bb, and the brigde should be changed to:

Bridge:

e---2-3-2-0---------------0-----------------
B---3-------3-------3-------3---------------
G---2---------2---0---0-------0-------------
D-0-0---------------------------------------
A---0-----------1-------3-------------------
E-------------------------------------------
