Verse 1:

D          C9      C9'       C9               G             D
well I'll bet my Maria's got an elbow full of lonely
C9           C9'                   C9                 G           D
now here's a little prayer so that she might get some sleep
C9          C9'             C9              G            D
don't let her face get skinned by the sun today
Am'     Am           Bm                    D
don't let it in when it comes knocking at your door

Chorus:

Em7
loneliness
C9
loneliness
G
loneliness
D
oh oh

Verse 2:

sometimes you feel you've got the emptiest arms in the whole world
try to make sense but it always comes out absurd
sleeping horses keep eating up your flowers
don't let it in when it comes kicking at your door

Chorus:

Em7
loneliness
C9
loneliness
G
loneliness
D
oh oh
C9
came kicking at my door

Verse 3:

G                  D                 Em          C       Cm7
she said I've really come to hate my body
G                       D                   Em         C       Cm7
and all the things that it requires in this world
G               D              Em                 C         Cm7
I bet you're out there getting drunk with all your friends
A                                        D
and it'll get you in the bathroom of a Texaco

Chorus:

Outro:

C9  C9' C9  G  D  repeat to fade

Riffs over outro:
e|--7-------15--14----------------------------|
B|-------------------15--17--15--12-----------|

It's also reciprocated an octave lower hence:
e|--------------------------------------------|
B|--3-------8--7--3-----5--3--0---------------|

Those are the main two riffs then it's adlibbed from thereon to fade.
