Cmaj7         Em Bm
I'm an engine driver
Cmaj7          G    D
On a long run, on a long run
Cmaj7          Em   Bm
Would I were beside her
Cmaj7             G      D
She's a long one, such a long one

Cmaj7            G       D     Cmaj7 Em Bm
And if you don't love me let me go
Cmaj7            G       D     Cmaj7 Em Bm
And if you don't love me let me go

Cmaj7        Em  Bm
I'm a county lineman
Cmaj7            G      D
On the highline, on the highline
Cmaj7         Em   Bm
So will be my grandson
Cmaj7                G      D
There are powerlines in our bloodlines

Cmaj7            G       D     Cmaj7 Em Bm
And if you don't love me let me go
Cmaj7            G       D     Cmaj7 Em Bm
And if you don't love me let me go

G          Bm                Em
And I am a writer, writer of fictions
         C                   G
I am the heart that you call home
                 Bm         Em
And I've written pages upon pages
          C               F E
Trying to rid you from my bones
   F E
My bones

My bones

(Interlude:)
Cmaj7 Em Bm Cmaj7 G D
Cmaj7 Em Bm Cmaj7 G D

Cmaj7       Em Bm
I'm a money lender
Cmaj7           G    D
I have fortunes upon fortunes
Cmaj7            Em Bm
Take my hand for tender
Cmaj7         G    D
I am tortured ever tortured

Cmaj7            G       D     Cmaj7 Em Bm
And if you don't love me let me go
Cmaj7            G       D     Cmaj7 Em Bm
And if you don't love me let me go

G          Bm                Em
And I am a writer, writer of fictions
         C                   G
I am the heart that you call home
                 Bm         Em
And I've written pages upon pages
          C               G
Trying to rid you from my bones
       Bm
I Am A writer
     Em                C     G
I am all that you have home, home
                 Bm         Em
And I've written pages upon pages
          C               F E
Trying to rid you from my bones
   F E
My bones

My bones

Cmaj7             G       D     
(And if you don't love me let me go)
Cmaj7            G       D     
And if you don't love me let me go
Cmaj7             G       D     
(And if you don't love me let me go)
Cmaj7            G       D     Cmaj7
And if you don't love me let me go

very accurate, but may i just offer 2 suggestions? before it goes into the "i am a writer" part, i think from watching live videos, the last chords before this are Em, then D major rather than Em then Bm? and in the "i am a writer" part itself, for one bar each of G, Bm, Em and rather than another bar of Em, a C major chord? an accurate tab and good to play along to, thanks :)
