Tabbed by Zach


I'm not 100% sure this is correct but it sounds alright to me.

Intro: 

C     G     Am     C G   




C
The carbonation in my drink
G
The bubbles rise while my heart sinks
Am                                    C G
And I'll I tend to do is think of you


C
Was it easier to pack your bags
G
And book that flight to paris as
Am                                     C G
The plane began to move that afternoon


Interlude:

C      G       Am       C G



C
When all the trains have pulled away
G
From local stations in decay
Am                                         C G
It's I who waits, it's you who's late again


C
And did you think of me when you made love
G
To him, was it the same as us
Am                                     C G
Or was it different, it must have been


Interlude:

C      G       Am       C G



C          G       C
And all the pretty dames
       F        Am      G
They'll hug and kiss you all the same
               F         C
And when they go, they're gone
        Am  G   E    F
They're not run-ning late
C       G      C
Oh all, all the pretty dames


C             G             C
And the kids you hold in your arms
     F     Am    G
With promises to protect them from harm
            F          C
But they grow, and they go
    Am     G  E  F
And you're all a-lone
       C              G             C
All the kids, all the kids that you hold

 
          C             G         C 
And it's a shame that it ends this way
     F       Am      G
With nothing left to say
       F           C            Am G   E F
So just sit on your hands, while I walk aw-ay
C             G             C
It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
        C     G        C
When my hands begin to shake
    F       Am           G
When bitterness is all I taste
       F         C
And may car won't stop
     Am G   E   F
Cause I cut the brakes
  C            G          C
I hold on to a hope in my fate


C     G     C
Oh oh ah ah hey hey
    F   Am        G
May you return to love one day
     F            C
Well I hope and I pray
    Am  G    E   F
You get what you gave
C     G     C
Oh oh ah ah hey hey


Outro: C       G       C

The Am in the into riff is an F I think. not the the whole chord, just the upper half.

If I may also offer a correction:

The initial verses are as follows:
C
When all the trains have pulled away
G
From local stations in decay
F C G
It's I who waits, it's you who's late again

And the second bit after the second interlude when the chord prog. changes:
C G C
And the kids you hold in your arms
F Am G
With promises to protect them from harm
F C
But they grow, and they go
Am G C F
And you're all a-lone
C G C
All the kids, all the kids that you hold

That comment looks terrible, but I hope you understand what is meant by it.

Basically the Am is an F in the first bit

And the E is a C in the second bit.
