 VERSE 1:
 D                              F/G G/A  D
 I just don't fit in this place
                                    F/G G/A  D

 Their thoughts cast me out of here
                                 F/G G/A  D
 Their home has run out of space
                               F/G G/A A/F
 My mind's already out of here
                             /G
 Won't you come along, dear?
          /A           D
 Won't you come along?

 VERSE 2:
 Words that are spoke alone
 Phrases you will never hear
 Empty rooms and a telephone
 That I will never use, never fear
 I am all alone, dear
 I am all alone

 VERSE 3:
 My dogs come sit next to me
 A pack of dogs and cigarettes
 My only friends speak no words to me
 But they look at me and they don't forget
 That a boy's best friend
           /D N.C.
 Is his mother or whatever has become his pet


All of the other tabs are somewhat inaccurate, I thought I'd host this one, I didn't tab this. Here it is . . .

Just to let you now, i was playing along with the track and it appears to be in open Eb, not E. Or at least i think i sounds better this way
