This is a full song tab based off of the great intro tab by legends35, and it is a
little bit rough, but I think this is a pretty good version of the whole song.

Now for the next few lines it turns into the full F and Fsus4 chords, roughly starting 
like this:

G|------(2)-----------(2)-----------3-----------3--------| Repeat until end of lyric, "And

E|-------------------------------------------------------|


At "earthly design", play

B|----0---0---0---0---0---0--|

A|--2-----------2------------|
E|---------------------------|


And now, starting at, "From the Reeperbahn", play

Here's all the lyrics with the underlying chords above(chord names may be wrong):
Fadd4/G:313211
Fmaj7/E:x33211
Fmaj13/E:x23211
Fmaj11/E:x13211
G#m/B:x2110x
Dm/A:x0776x  -or-  x00231


F                 Fadd4/G
You are needing a friend
       F              Fadd4/G
For to follow, for to fend
      F             Fadd4/G
And I haven't got a clue
       Fmaj7/E            Fmaj13/E
If I'm getting through to you
   Fmaj11/E
My lighthouse


       F           Fadd4/G
In the violent moonlight
     F             Fadd4/G
I am searching the tide
     F              Fadd4/G
In a vessel, in the storm
               Fmaj7/E          Fmaj13/E
And you're the kind host in the port
   Fmaj11/E
My lighthouse


    F                 Fsus4
And we'll be there to right our wrongs
       F               Fsus4
In the time it took to write this song
          F                   Fsus4
And we'll beat the ghost with our bare hands
          F                         Fsus4
And we'll skin the corpse and we'll love and laugh
          F         Fsus4
And we'll dance all everlasting day
           F                     Fsus4
And you'll sing to me everything I meant to say
          F                        Fsus4
And we'll drink to the gentle, the meek and the kind
        F                          G#m/B(?)
And the funny little flaws in this earthly design
         Am                Dm/A
From the Reeperbahn to the Sundarban
       Am                      C
I will heed your call from the dust and sand
         G                       Bm
And I'll save all my stories for thee

Thanks so much for the tab. I wasn't sure at first if it was in an alternate tuning or something! Here are a few corrections (based on the studio recording), otherwise the tab is perfect.

"And we'll be there..."

e|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|----1-----1---1---1-----1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1--|
G|------(2)-----------(2)-----------3-----------3--------|
D|------------3-------------3-----------0-----------0----|
A|--0-------------0-------------3-----------3------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|

"Earthly design..."

e|---------------------------|
B|----0---0---0---1---1---1--|
G|------1-----------1--------|
D|----------2-----------2----|
A|---------------------------|
E|--0-----------0------------|
