G      - 300030      G9     - 200030    
Asus2  - 002200      Dsus2  - x00230

[The Intro/Verse parts follow this general picking pattern]
   G     Asus2           C7                G  

G  Asus2  C7  G x2

G                       Asus2
Where's that angel with dirty knees
           C7                           G
Who wasn't hard to please when we first met
G                      Asus2
She don't act like she needs me now
              C7                G
And she don't even seem to be upset

G             Asus2
Maybe I cover too much ground,
               C7                        G
I've been from town to town since I grew up
G                       Asus2
Could my dreams take up too much space?
           C7                        G
I'll never find a place that's big enough

G9    Em7     G          Dsus2
The chairs go up on the bar now
        Em7     G       Dsus2
And the table lights go black
     Em7    G       Dsus2
So I order one last double
And start calling people back

G                           Asus2
Marc sounds good, he's been working hard
           C7                           G
he couldn't punch a card to save his life
G                       Asus2
Say's he's glad that he quit the road
               C7                         G
He say's he's getting old and missed his wife
G                 Asus2
Little Em's been asleep since nine
               C7                     G
I'm sure she's doing fine, she always is
G                    Asus2
Dad won't answer his phone at night
             C7                           G
But I guess that's alright, the place is his

G9       Em7       G         Dsus2
And the chairs are up on the bar now
          Em7     G      Dsus2
And they're asking me to leave
      Em7      G     Dsus2
So I give the girl a bill
And start rolling down my sleeves

G                  Asus2
In my pocket, directions back
            C7                           G
Across the railroad tracks, to where I crash
G                   Asus2
Maybe I should wave down a car
            C7                      G
I won't be going far, and I've got cash
G                      Asus2
Think I blocked just a park away
            C7                           G
But I can't really say, it's been all night
G                     Asus2
How I wish you would call me here
             C7                       G
but you just disappeared, it wasn't right

G9       Em7         G      Dsus2
And the Streetlights help a little
            Em7    G    Dsus2
But they're barely half alive
       Em7        G        Dsus2
And I don't feel much like walking
I sure as hell can't drive

G                     Asus2
Close your eyes and remember this
            C7                        G
It won't be back again, it's almost gone
G                    Asus2
Even times that don't seem like much
             C7                       G
Will be your only crutch, when your alone
G                           Asus2
Time moves slow when you're seventeen
             C7                       G
And then it picks up steam at twenty-one
G                    Asus2
Pretty soon you'll remember when
            C7                         G
You could remember when, you loved someone

G9  Em7  G  Dsus2
    Em7  G  Dsus2
    Em7  G  Dsus2 Cadd9
G  Asus2  C7  G x2

thanks, especially for the picking pattern! but doesn't sound better if the G9 is played like this: G9 - 3x0030 ?

Thanks for the 5 star vote! After going back and listening to the recording, I agree that the "G9" should be played that way, except for the first time right before the "chorus." I have updated the chords above to reflect these changes.
