"Sax Rohmer 1"
set tempo
Intro: C
C                          Em
Fog lifts from the harbor, dawn goes down to day
   Am                              F
An agent crests the shadows of the nearby alleyway
C                       Em
Piles of broken bricks, sign posts on the path
Am                              F
Every moment points towards the aftermath

Interlude: C, Dm, F X2

C                                Em
Sailors straggle back from their nights out on the town
Am                             F
Hopeless urchins from the city gather round
C                         Em
Spies from imperial China wash in with the tide
      Am                  F
Every battle heads toward surrender on both sides

                 C              Am
Chorus: And I am coming home to you
        F               C  G
With my own blood in my mouth
         C         Am
And I am coming to you
            F          C      G
If it’s the last thing that I do

C                        Em
Bells ring in the tower, wolves howl in the hills
Am                                F
Chalk marks show up on a few high windowsills
      C                                Em
And a rabbit gives up somewhere, and a dozen hawks descend
Am                            F
Every moment leads toward its own sad end


C                                Em
Ships loosed from their mornings capsize and then they’re gone
Am                             F
Sailors with no captains watch awhile and then move on
       C                              Em
And an agent crests the shadows and I head in her direction
Am                        F
All roads lead toward the same blocked intersection

             C              Am
Chorus: I am coming home to you
        F               C   G
With my own blood in my mouth
         C         Am
And I am coming to you
            F          C      G
If it’s the last thing that I do

( Do the interlude 3 or 4 times and end on C )

-When playing Em only play the top three strings like a power chord
-Number of times interlude will vary throughout the song but is still all the same 
{C, Dm, F}

Chorus: Change the F C G in the last row to F G C.

Perfekt Tab I think!

This isn't really a correction, but a contribution. Here's about what I play for the riff during the interlude. The timing may be a little rough because it is a huge hassle to really show it accurately in a tab.

C Dm F F
|1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & |1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & |1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & |1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & |

watching him play it live (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4MaXMnlXt4) and listening, i...THINK that that's an Emaj not Em in the verse. otherwise great chords though, to a great song
