    D
I recall
  Bm        A      G
A schoolboy coming home
                  D
Through fields of cane
     Bm       A       G
To a house of tin and timber

           D
And in the sky
  Bm      A       G
A rain of falling cinders
     G       A
From time to time
    G
The waste, memory wastes


REPEAT MAIN RIFF  x2


    D
I recall
  Bm     A      G
A boy in bigger pants 
          D
Like everyone
     Bm      A     G
Just waiting for a chance

             D
His father's watch
   Bm      A      G
He left it in the showers
     G       A
From time to time
    G
The waste, memory wastes
        G
And the waste, memory wastes


REPEAT MAIN RIFF  x4


    D
I recall
  Bm     A        G
A bigger brighter world
           D
A world of books
     Bm    A        G
And silent times in thought

             D
And then the railroad 
    Bm       A         G
The railroad takes him home
                  D
Through fields of cattle 
Bm      A         G
Through fields of cane

     G       A
From time to time
    G
The waste, memory wastes
        G
And the waste, memory wastes

Good job. I remember figuring out/playing the main riff a bit differently, but I'll have to give it another go since I haven't played this in ages. Just a small correction: the intro is played by both guitar and bass, so the low B, A, and G notes are actually just what the bass plays and aren't part of the guitar figure.

At one time, I had quite a few songs from the first three albums figured out, like "By Chance" and "Man O' Sand to Girl O' Sea" and so forth. I'll try to submit some of that soon.
