[Intro]
G C9 G D/F# Em7 C9 G  x2

[Chorus]
G    C9    G    D/F#   Em7    C9     G
Held on to hope like a noose, like a rope
G       C9    G  D/F#    Em7   C9 G
God and medicine take no mercy on him
Em7      C9  G          Em7        C9  G
Poisoned his blood, and burned out his throat
Em7    C9 G
Enough is enough,
D       Em7 C9       G
He's a long way from home

[Break]
G C9 G D/F# Em7 C9 G  

[Chorus]
G       C9 G     D/F#   Em7  C9      G
Days of my youth wasted on a selfish fool
G       C9      G     D/F#    Em7   C9       G
Who ran for the hills from the hand you were dealt
Em7    C9  G        Em7   C9       G
I flew far away, as far as I could go
     Em7     C9      G
Your time is running out
    D     Em7  C9       G
And I'm a long way from home

[Break]
G C9 G D/F# Em7 C9 G  x2

[Chorus]
G    C9    G        D/F# Em7  C9    G
Laid up in bed, you were laid up in bed
G       C9  G    D/F#        Em7     C9   G
Holding the pain like you're holding your breath
Em7      C9        G       Em7  C9     G
I prayed you could sleep, sleep like a stone
Em7          C9      G
You're right next to me
D            Em7  C9       G
But you're a long way from home

[Break]
G C9 G D/F# Em7 C9 G  x2

[Chorus]
G     C9 G     D/F#  Em7 C9        G
Hospital gowns never fit like they should
G         C9     G      D/F#   Em7 C9  G
We yelled at the nurse, didn't do  any good
Em7  C9    G       Em7  C9        G
More morphine, the last words you moaned
Em7     C9    G
At last I was sure
D                Em7 C9        G
That you weren't far away from home

[End]
G C9 G D/F# Em7 C9 G  x2

Any chance you could add the unreleased intro to this Tab? https://youtu.be/obCDUw7D1oA

I'm very much enjoying working through the nuances of playing this song based on this tab!

Thanks! I think I've (mostly) figured it out:
Best URL for this song - https://youtu.be/WL2TsyjlS9M

IntroG C* (*slide I and M up two frets and back down) Em

G C G Em C G
If only for my time, If only for my mind

Em C G D Em C G
Find my words to speak, ramble on for a while
G C G Em C G
And it waited in his skin, buried deep within

Em C G D Em C G
It buried Lilian, and now it waits, waits for him
G C G Em C G
And the day has arrived, a civil war inside
Em C G D Em C G
The cells, they multiplied (unintelligable)
