Standard tuning EADGBe

Play chord progression Em A E5add7 A in E voicings (i.e. for A and A5add7 play 
second inversions) apart from verse endings- for all others just play straight chords.

Note: E5add7 is an Em7 without the minor 3rd. You can still use Em7 but doesn't sound as good.

STRUCTURE

[Main riff parts 1 & 2] (x3)

Well the road I see before me threatens pain at every bend, yeah.

I might meet somebody I understand and hope to call him friend.

[Main riff part 2] 

(straight)  Asus2  G        A  Asus4  A             C     Csus2   C      D
Well good company, it may comfort me. But I don't want love to distract my 
heart from the way.

Em  A  E5add7  A  (x2) 

[Main riff parts 1 & 2] 

Now your love it gave me sorrow and a broken heart to mend, yeah.

So I took me to this lonely road my sweet hopes to defend.

(straight)  Asus2  G        A  Asus4  A             C          Csus2   C    D
Oh and why pretend, I won't look back. Even though the life of a happy man waits before.

Em  A  E5add7  A  (x2)

[Main riff parts 1 & 2]

So take pity on a wanderer should you pass me on the way.

[Main riff part 2] 

(straight)  Asus2  G  A  Asus4  A       C          Csus2   C      D
Oh, I'm left alone without a home. Makes a man ask why he travels on when hope is gone.
