This is Matthew Ryan's song 'Lights of the Commodore Barry', the 6th track from his 1997 
album "May Day". It's in standard tuning with capo on the 2nd fret.

Verse 1:
I saw the lights of the Commodore Barry

From the deck of the ghost of the flower street ferry
G                         A
And I felt the shock of an atom bomb
        D                  A
When the tired old city of Chester
  Em                      A
Was draped and dying in my arms
For a while I was lost under the weight of remembering

Of how the sun would warn the projects some mornings
G                                        A
When the birds were falling like winter's frozen rain
          D                          A
And I was all fingers numb holding a brown paper lunch
Em                          A
Twelve years old and already ashamed

Interlude: D, G, A, D, A, Em, A

Verse 2:
Now soon I was floating over Highland Avenue

By my side was the Red Cross, the Pope and the President too
G                          A
Yeah I had returned like I swore I would
   D                     A
To right some wrongs and sing my song
   Em                            A
And share the luck that every man should
But when the fever broke and I awoke from the dream

I was passed out beside a jukebox siphoning gasoline
G                                      A
When my brother yanked me hard from the corner bar
              D            A
And carried my drunk bones all the way home
Em                      A
Draped and heavy in his arms

End on D.
