[Verse 1]

Em7           C,   Am, F
  My name is Jonas.
     G            C, Em7, Am
I'm carrying the wheel.
Em7                     C        Am, F
Thanks for all you've shown us.
G                 C, Em7, Am, Em7
This is how we feel.   
C         Am
Come sit next to me.
F              G
Pour yourself some tea.
C          Am
Just like Grandma made
F                 G
When we couldn't find sleep.
C            Am
Things were better then.
F         G
Once but never again.
C          Am
We've all left the den.
F                G
Let me tell you 'bout it.


C                    Am           G      G
The choo-choo train left right on time.
C               Am        G      G
A ticket costs only your mind.
C                Am                G             G
The driver said, "Hey, man, we go all the way."
C                  Am         G
Of course we were willing to pay.


C, Em7, Am, Em7, C, Em7, Am

[Verse 2]

Em7          C      Am, F
My name is Weepel.
      G                 C,   Em7, Am
Gotta box full of your toys.
Em7                   C          Am, F
They're fresh out of batteries.
            G           C        Am           F      G
But they're still makin' noise,      makin' noise.
C            Am
Tell me what to do.
F              G
Now the tank is dry.
C               Am
Now this wheel is flat.
F                      G
And you know what else?
C             Am
Guess what I received,
F       G
In the mail today.
C         Am
Words of deep concern
F        G
From my little brother.


C                  Am            G         G
The building's not goin' as he planned.
C                Am          G          G
The foreman has injured his hand.
C              Am           G        G
The dozer will not clear a path.
C               Am                G        G
The driver swears he learned his math.
C                Am     G       G
The workers are goin' home. (x4)


Strum C fast up and down until you hear the chord changes (2 min 13 sec),  then play:
C, Am, F, G   (4 times)---->This is all fast up and down strumming also

C                Am     G
The workers are goin' home. (x3)
C      Am     G
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!


C, Am, F, G   (5 times)
C, Am, [G-->(one light strum)]


And then at the plain acoustic strumming (3 min 10 second into the song) play the Intro Chords
C, Em7, Am, Em7 (2x)

My name is Jonas.

Thanks for this. While the tab(s) are good to learn the intro and how the song is preformed on an electric guitar, this type of chord progression works better for acoustic performers! Great job! 5/5.

The order of the chords is totally wrong, it could just be because I'm on an iPad or something, but the chords are not correct for me.
