[Verse 1] 

D           A              G      Bm        G
  I found a picture of you,       ohh oh oh ohh ohhh
D          A                      G        Bm     G

D                   A                    G       Bm     G
To a place in the past we've been cast out of, ohh oh oh 
D    A                       G       Bm     G
Oh,    now we're back in the fight

Oh,  oh, back on the chain gang

Circumstance beyond our control, ohh oh oh ohh ohhh
D          A                      G        Bm     G
Oh, the phone, the TV, and the news of the world
D                   A                 G         Bm      G
Got in the house like a pigeon from hell, ohh oh oh ohh ohh
D    A                       G       Bm     G
Threw sand in our eyes, and descended like flies


[Chorus]

Em                    A           Em     A
   Put us back on the train, yeah

Dm    A             Dm      A                          Dm
  The powers that be   that force us to live like we do
Dm    A                                  Dm                 A
  Bring me to my knees when I see what they've done to you
Dm           A                               Dm                  A
And I'll die as I stand here today,knowing that deep in my heart
Dm    A                     Dm          A               A
      They'll fall to ruin one day, for making us part

  Like a break in the battle was your part, ohh oh oh ohh ohhh
E        B                           A       C#m     A
Oh, in the wretched life of a lonely heart

   Now we're back on the train, yeah

Oh,   oh, back on the chain gang

Instead of the G you should have an E, so it goes D, A, E, Bm.

Lack of accuracy. The chord progression here has been way oversimplified. The verse is D, Asus4, Em7, G/B then G, and the next section is Em, A, Em7, A, Em, A then back to D. Try it and see :)

Chrissie Hynde plays it like this.
D {X X 0 11 10 0}
A {X 0 0 6 5 0}
Em {0 2 2 0 0 0}
Em7 {0 2 2 0 3 0}
Em7* {0 2 2 0 3 3)

D A Em Em7 Em7*
