About this tab version
I have been playing it this way for years, less chord variations. When going from G to Em move index finger to 2nd fret then to A string. Was this info helpful? Yes No
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
G                         G                             G
Sweet and wasted on a sidewalk in his jacket and his jeans
        C                                  G
Wearing yesterday's misfortunes like a smile.
C                                 G            Em
Once he had a future, full of money,love, and dreams, 
C                                             D
Which he spent,like they were going out of style.
G                                G                        G
And he keeps right on a changin for the better or the worse,
C                                           G
Alway searchin for the shrine he's never found.
C                                  G            Em
Never knowin if believein was a blessing or a curse,
C                        D                  G
And if the going up was worth the coming down.

 C               (speak)              G       (speak)                     
He's a poet, "he's a picker", He's a prophet "he's a pusher"
C                                 G                       Em
He's a pilgrim and a preacher, and a problem when he's stoned.
C                                  G                      Em
He's a walkin contradiction, partly truth but mostly fiction,
C                                    D                 G
takin every wrong direction, on his lonely way back home.
G                             G                           G
G                             G                          G
He has tasted good and evil, in your bedroom and your bar,
C                                   G
And he's traded in tomorrow for today.
C                                G                  Em
Running from his devils lord and reachin for the stars,
C                                 D
and losin all he loves along the way.
G                                      G                        G
But this world keeps right on turnin, for the better or the worse
C                                     G             C
And all he ever gets is older and around. From the rockin of the cradle to 
    G                  Em       C           D                 G
the rollin of your hearse, the goin up is worth the coming down.

            D                                              G
There's a lot of wrong direction on your lonely way back home
