All credit to Pat and the gang for the song, check out their website for all the names 
and such.

This song's in 3/4 time and it's a pretty simple folky tune, any questions to

[E B A] x2


[E B A]

E          B          A
     The trains roll by my porch

E               B           A
Down here where nothing can live

              E           B
And I've been smoking too much

         C#m      A
Because I am no exception

    E           B        A
You knew that already, I think

If you want salvation
Then you ought to go see a priest
'Cause forgiveness from those that we hurt
In this world never was guaranteed


 [E C#m B A]

    E                 C#m
I'm coming home, it's late again

            B         A
I'm high as I've ever been

       E                  C#m
You're sitting up, you're in our bed

       B              A
Crying for a ghost again

   E                C#m
No room could be as dark

         B          A
Or as empty as ours is

       E               C#m
'Cause I'm at home but I'm not here

    B       A
And I never am


[E B A]

I wonder how many friends
Roll past my house in the night?
In boxcars they sleep
With hearts stashed in their backpacks
They'll make California all right
A promise from me
Is just a lie I ain't told yet
So I'm ready to die
But I'm not willing to watch
You watch me die here in our bed


 [E C#m B A]

I'm lying down, I've been nodding out
Since I don't know when
The lights are on, you're standing up
Screaming at a ghost again
Darling, I'm home; hell I ain't left
This house of ours in days
But I'm not here; I never am
So I just can't stay


[E C#m A B]

   E            C#m            A
My darling, I'm never coming back

From where I'm going

   E            C#m           A    [You can play the B here, I usually don't]
My darling, I'm never coming home

   E            C#m           A
My darling, I'm never coming back

From where I'm going

   E            C#m           A
My darling, I'm never coming home

      B             [I usually finish on E but improvising a bit is nice]
Never coming home again

According to Pat's zine the verse is actually E B7 A. Rest is correct though

On the album version it's definitely a B(no 7), and the banjo sometimes plays it E B A7. All the chords here are correct for guitar, adding 7th's is just improvisation, which Pat does a lot with his songs, and probably why he listed B7 at one time.
