[Intro]

Em7  G  Em7  G  Em7  A7sus4  Em7  A7sus4  G       x2

[Verse 1]

C                         D/F#
So, so you think you can tell,

             Am/E                   G
Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.

                     D/F#                      C                    Am
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail, a smile from a veil,

                      G
Do you think you can tell?


[Verse 2]

                      C                   D/F#
Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts,

                Am/E                  G                             D/F#
Hot ashes for trees, hot air for a cool breeze, cold comfort for change,

                  C                        Am                         G
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?


[Instrumental]

Em7  G  Em7  G  Em7  A7sus4  Em7  A7sus4  G


[Verse 3]

C                               D/F#
How I wish, how I wish you were here.

           Am/E                                    G                D/F#
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,

                                  C
Running over the same old ground. What have we found?

             Am                         G
The same old fears. Wish you were here!


[Instrumental]

Em7  G  Em7  G  Em7  A7sus4  Em7  A7sus4  G

During the solo when you play
Em G Em G Em A Em A before he switchs to C he plays a G so that part would go
Em G Em G Em A Em A G like at the end.
Exellent tab though. Good Job

korn kid's right, and also, I think that the A chord during the solo is an inversion of A7 with g on the high e string, but other than that, good job.
