I've read a lot of criticism about this song but it's one of my favorites.
Anyway, I hope it's close.

Starts out with cricket sounds, car door slams, car starts and drives away.

Intro: This is on the keyboard but sounds the same on guitar.

D---4-----------            ---4-7----------|
A---------------            ----------------|
E---------------            ----------------|

Keyboard plays behind guitar on this part, mostly repeating 1st four notes above.

F#m
I took a ride in a limosine, I took a road I've never been.
I met a stranger along the way, his coat was torn but his eyes were clear.
F#m           Bm    Bm7   Bm   Bm7       Bm    F#m
Standing in a slide zone, step-pin' in a slide zone.
F#m
He told me where a river flows, he showed me how the apple grows.
He told me of a magic street, his face was worn but his eyes were clear.
F#m           Bm    Bm7              Bm   Bm7            Bm    F#m
Standing in a slide zone, I could be step-pin' in   a    slide zone.
Standing in a slide zone, I could be step-pin' through a time zone.
F#m
He went to find a shooting star, around the bend that's where they are.
I went along just for the ride, suddenly I began to smile.
F#m           Bm    Bm7              Bm   Bm7            Bm   F#m
Standing in a slide zone, I could be step-pin' through a time zone.
F#m
The air raced by,there was no sound, we're drifting high above the ground.
And then he said "you will know this place",and then a smile lit up his face.
F#m           Bm    Bm7              Bm   Bm7       Bm    F#m
Standing in a slide zone, I could be step-pin' in a slide zone.
F#m           Bm    Bm7              Bm   Bm7            F#sus4
Standing in a slide zone, I could be step-pin' through a time zo-o-o-one.

F#m
I turned my head and I looked below, and there was something that I know.
Suddenly I began to fall, I looked around and I tried to call.F#m           Bm    Bm7

Standing in a slide zone, he had me step-pin   in  a  time zone.
Standing in a slide zone,           walking through a time zone.
F#m
Help me please I thought I said, did something happen in my head?
The music came from all around, and I knew what I had found.
