Riff (I call this "Walk" in the tab...it's basically a bass note walk, but should
be done with strumming):

So here we go...

[Intro]G

G
 We took a weekend, drove to Provo
C                               -Walk- G
 The snow was white and fluffy
G
 But a weekend in Utah won't fix what's wrong with us
C
 And the grey sky was vast and real cryptic above me

[Chorus]
    D             C                        C  -Walk- G
 I wanted you, to love me like you used to do

G
 We took 2 weeks in the Bahamas
C
 Went out dancing every night
G
 Tried to fight the creeping sense of dread with temporal things
C                                D
 Most of the time I guess I felt alright

[Chorus]
D      C        D     C                           -Walk- G
 But I wanted you, to love me like you used to do

G                   C
 But you cannot run, And you cannot hide
G                                       C                D       G
 From the wreck we've made of our house, And the mess inside

G
 We went down to New Orleans
C
 One weekend in the Spring
G
 Looked hard for what we'd lost
        C                           D
 It was painful to admit it, but we couldn't find a thing

[Chorus]
D      C        D     C                           -Walk- G
 And I wanted you, to love me like you used to do

G
 Went to New York City in September
        C
 Took a train out of Manhattan, to the Grand Army stop
            G
 Found that bench we'd sat together on a thousand years ago
        C                                   D
 When I felt such love for you I thought my heart was gonna pop

[Chorus]
D      C        D     C                           -Walk- G   D   G
 And I wanted you, to love me like you used to do

G                 C
 But I cannot run, And I can't hide
G                                       C                D      G
 From the wreck we've made of our house, And the mess inside

[Outro]
G C G C G C D G C D G

believe the chord progression for the chorus is
C D G C
And I wanted you to love me like you used to do

At least that's what it sounds like on the record. John plays it differently live it seems.

Wow, can you really only edit a comment once? Jesus, okay, look: Go by the tab which has it
D C D C
Do that but replace the final C which is over "love me" with a G and add a C over "do" and do the "walk" progression into the verse.

The very first chorus is correct, it's only D C D
