Only thing I didn't include is over top of "distant stations" he does a quick A chord in between the 
G and Bm chords.


D              G
I found an old rock
       D           G
In the dry dirt outside
    (G)     A  D
The door of my motel room
         (D)                        G
It was a triangle with soft rounded edges
      D                            G
And a split down the middle of one corner
       (G)                  A
It was darker than english moss
D                                G
Green like the soft frill's of a peacock's plume
  (G)        A
I waited for you
      D                      G
But I never told you where I was
       E                 A
It was you who taught me how
   D                     Bm
To write these kinds of equations
  G                       A
I waited on the steps for you
      D                            G
And I hid in the bushes whenever a car pulled into the parking lot
E             A                 Bm           G       
You taught me how to listen to these distant stations
Bm      G        
Distant stations

Bm     G   A   D


 (D)          G
I saw the sky break
          D                                        G
I threw a rock at a crow who was playing In the mulches and rose bushes by the motel
  D                     A            D                    
office. Missed him by a good yard or two
     (D)              G
I sang old songs from nowhere
    D            G
Los Angeles, Albuquerque
(G)                         A
Said a small prayer for the poor and the naked and the hungry
      D                    G
And I prayed real hard for you
 (G)         A
I waited for you
      D                      G
But I never told you where I was
       E                 A
It was you who taught me how
   D                   Bm
To write this kind of equation
  G                       A
I waited on the steps for you
      D                                  G
And I hid in the bushes whenever I saw a car pulled into the parking lot
E             A                     Bm       G             
You taught me how to listen to these distant stations
