This is 'Irrelevant', the 3rd track from Matthew Ryan's 1997 album "May Day".  

Standard tuning with capo on the 1st fret.

Chord Key: 
E - 022100
E/A - x02100
E/F# - 202100


Intro: E, E/A, E/F# (x2)


Verse 1:
            E
There’s only one light on in the house 
             E/A
And that’s the light up in the hall 
       E/F#
And it’s shining on the back of my head 
       E                        E/A
And I’m concentrating hard on the cigarette 
                       E/F#
To the ashtray from the ashtray back to my lips 


Chorus:
    E
So I lean up from my easy chair 
 E/A
I rub my three-day beard 
E/F#
And give that thousand yard stare 
       E                   E/A      E/F#
As I recall all the time and money we spent 
                    E
Before I became irrelevant 


Interlude: E/A, E/F#, E, E/A, E/F#


Verse 2:
       E
So the straw-dog threw rock-salt 
       E/A
And the precious girl took a bow and walked 
E/F#
As I ran my finger over the screen door 
     E
Yeah every kiss has reeked of betrayal 
       E/A
Since my heroine jumped the guardrail 
   E/F#
And decided who she wanted to be once more 


Chorus: 
   E
Now every night I’m paralyzed 
      E/A
By the fear of rope burns and morning light 
E/F#
And the smell of wet cement 
                    E
Since I became irrelevant 


Interlude: E/A, E/F#, E, E/A, E/F#


Verse 3:
    E
Now memory is just a flash flood 
 E/A
A thick and black sticky mud 
   E/F#
And heartache it’s like a breaking bone 


Verse 4:
             E
It was always twelve hours on a missionary line 
E/A
I think I would've spared some time 
           E/F#
But I didn't I never went home 


Chorus:
        E
Now it occurs to me like blinds un-drawn 
    E/A
Or a bullet from a shotgun 
E/F#
That she knew long ago what it meant 
            E       E/A  E/F#
To feel irrelevant  


Last Verse:
        E            E/A
Now I’m always smiling crying 

And hiding my intent 
                    E
Since I became irrelevant 


Outro: E, E/A, E/F# (x3) E
