This tab is based on this live performance of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZ-zpI3xCCk.

[Intro]

E Asus2 A
E Asus2 A

[Verse]

Esus
The way your smell lingers on my clothes
Asus2 *
Creeps up, eats me inside out
Esus                     Asus2 *
I couldn't make you stay
C#m7
Shoot up in the trailer
                    Bsus4
I couldn't make you stay here

[Verse]

Esus
Pebbles fall from under your toes
Asus2 *
Jumped up, fucked up always

Esus                  Asus2 *                  
Like you were seeing something
                            C#m7
Like you saw something beautiful
                  Bsus4
Couldn't make you stay here

[Chorus]

E
Dead skin, piercing light
Asus2
      Through my eyes, through my spine
E                            Asus2
Catch a glimpse of a flicker and I try
Bsus4           Asus2      C#m7
And you are not here in my bed tonight
          Asus2
You never will be
          Bsus4
You never will be, Tommy

E Asus2 A
E Asus2 A

[Bridge]

Asus2
And I forgot your eyes
Amaj9sus/G#
And I forgot your hair
Asus2            Bsus4
And I forgot you entirely
Asus2
The fall from Diamond Gap
Amaj9sus/G#
The ravages of time
E                              Bsus4
If you don't jump then I'll be fine

[Chorus]

Esus
Dead skin, piercing light
Asus2 *
Through my eyes, through my spine
Esus                              Asus2 *
     Catch a glimpse of a flicker and I try
E
Dead skin, piercing light
Asus2
Through my eyes, through my spine
C#m7                          Bsus4
Catch a glimpse of a flicker and I try
Asus2           Bsus4             C#m7
And you are not here in my bed tonight
Asus2
You never will be
Amaj9sus/G#
You never will be
Asus2
You never will be
Amaj9sus/G#
You never will be

[Outro]

Asus2
And you won't work in the factory
          Bsus4
I'll stop stripping
Asus2
And I won't leave if you won't leave
             Bsus4
If you don't leave, Tommy
E
