Intro.: | E | Emaj7 | E7 | Bdim | F#m | A | E |

            E
This is the dinner prepared
            Emaj7
This is the dress that I made
             E7
This is the child I brought up
Bdim               F#m
  And this is the woman you laid
A               E
  This is the woman you laid


            E
This is the perfume I wore
            Emaj7
This is the hotel we stayed
            E7
This is the way that I lay
Bdim               F#m
  And this is the woman you laid
A              E
  This is the woman you laid


B                                             G#m      C
  We promised ourselves this is no one-night stand
B                                                G#m      C
  Let us draw all the curtains and strike up the band
B                                                G#m      C
  And I'm thrilled by the gentlest touch of your hand
      B7      F#m     G#m      F#m 
We pretend

          E               Emaj7
There's a tear, there's a tear
E7                            Bdim   F#m         Am     E
Not through confusion through fe. . .ar, through fe. . .ar

             E
This is the smile that I wore
            Emaj7
This is the song that we played
            E7
This is the way that I lay
Bdim               F#m
  And this is the woman you laid
A              E
  This is the woman you laid


B                                             G#m      C
   Next morning our eyes filled with sleepy regret
B                                     G#m      C
   A kiss and good-bye and a long cigarette
B                                           G#m      C
   But the pillow I lay on is cold and it's wet
         B7      F#m     G#m      F#m 
Can't pretend


       E            Emaj7
It's a tear, it's a tear
E7                            Bdim   F#m         Am     E
Not through confusion through fe. . .ar, through fe. . .ar
Bm                                       E      G
  And knowing at least that love came so ne. . .ar
Bm                                              A      E
  Just adds to the weight of this bell bottomed te. . .ar


Instr.: | Emaj7 | E7 | Bdim | F#m | A | E |


B                                         G#m       C
  Roll out the red carpets and unplug the phone
B                                    G#m       C
  Root out the photos you've already shown
B                                     G#m       C
 'Cos this one night you won't sleep alone
    B7   F#m      G#m    F#m
Just one ni. . . . . . . ight


       E            Emaj7
It's a tear, it's a tear
E7                            Bdim   F#m         Am     E
Not through confusion through fe. . .ar, through fe. . .ar
Bm                                       E       G
  And knowing at least that love came so near
Bm                                              A      E
  Just adds to the weight of this bell bottomed te. . .ar


          Emaj7             E7
There's a tear, there's a tear
Bbim                          F#m
Not through confusion through fear
Am                            E
Not through confusion through fear.

This is very good - the Bdim should be a C#7 though.

Also, I'm pretty sure the original is played with a Capo on Fret 4 using C shapes (e.g. C, Cmaj7, C7, A7, etc.)
