Okay, there may be a few lyrics that don't match up with what's printed online, but HEY.  
It's The Replacements.  It's not like Paul always sings his lyrics the same way everytime, anyway.

The verses are just arpeggiated Em / Cmaj7 chords, and the strum pattern is similar to this:
e|-----------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------0------------|  
G|----------------------0-------0----------|
D|------2-----2---2---2-----2-----2--------|
A|----2-----2---2---3-----3----------------|
E|--0-----0--------------------------------|

Now here's the chords in the song:

The Ledge

Em      Cmaj7   Em      Cmaj7

[Verse 1]
Em       Cmaj7        Em                Cmaj7
All eyes look up to me  
Em      Cmaj7         Em              Cmaj7
High above frozen streets
Em      Cmaj7              Em           Cmaj7
Heed no bullhorn when it calls
Em                 Cmaj7         Em             Cmaj7
Watch me fly and die, watch me fall

[Chorus]
C
I'm the boy they can't ignore
        D               
For the first time in my life, I'm sure
C                                B
All the love sent up high to pledge
                                
Won't reach the ledge

Em      Cmaj7   Em      Cmaj7

[Verse 2]
Em          Cmaj7           Em          Cmaj7
Wind blows cold from the west
        Em              Cmaj7               Em      Cmaj7
I smell coffee, I smell doughnuts for the brass
  Em     Cmaj7             Em           Cmaj7
A girl I knew once years ago
   Em           Cmaj7             Em    
Is tryin' to be reached on the phone

[Chorus]
C
I'm the boy she can't ignore
        D
For the first time in my life, I'm sure
C                                    B
All the love sent up high to pledge
C
I'm the boy she can't ignore
        D
For the first time in my life, I'm sure
C                                  B
All the love sent up high to pledge

[Interlude]

Em      Cmaj7   Em      Cmaj7

[Solo]

Em      Cmaj7   Em      Cmaj7

Em      Cmaj7   Em      Cmaj7

C       D       C       D

Em              Cmaj7   Em              Cmaj7

[Verse 3]
Em            Cmaj7            Em       Cmaj7
Priest kneels silent, all is still
Em        Cmaj7               Em        Cmaj7
Policeman reaches from the sill
Em            Cmaj7        Em           Cmaj7
Watch him try,  try his best
         Em    Cmaj7                  Em        Cmaj7
There'll be no medal pinned to his chest

[Chorus]
C
I'm the boy they couldn't ignore
        D
For the first time in my life, I'm sure
C
I'm the boy they couldn't ignore
        D
For the first time in my life, I'm sure
C                   D
I'm the boy for the last time in my life
C
All the love that they pledge
        D                            Em         Cmaj7
For the last time will not reach the ledge

Em              Cmaj7   Em              Cmaj7
