The beat of this is song is very strange, the drums appear to be in or 6/8, but 
the guitar over the top is almost in 4/4. I'll try and show this on the tab, with 
v showing on the beat, and ^ showing off the beat.

This is repeated over most of the song.

Lets call "056400" G7, and "034200" Cm6

Intro G7 Cm6 G7 Cm6 G7 Cm6 G7 Cm6 

       G7
So I'm there
Cm6                    G7
Charging around with a juggernaut brow
Cm6                     G7
Overdraft, speeches and deadlines to make
Cm6                       G7
Cramming commitments like cats in a sack
Cm6                  G7
Telephone burn and a purposeful gait
     Cm6                  G7
When out of a doorway the tentacles stretch
     Cm6            
Of a song that I know
        G7             Cm6
And the world moves in slow-mo
G7       
Straight to my head 
         Cm6                    G7
like the first cigarette of the day

         Cm6           G7
And it's you, and it's May
          Cm6                  G7
And we're sleeping through the day
        Cm6        G7
And I'm five years ago
          Cm6            (G7)
And three thousand miles away

G7 Cm6 G7 Cm6

     G7
Do I have
        Cm6 
time? A man of my calibre
G7                         Cm6
Stood in the street like a sleepwalking teenager
G7
No.
      Cm6 
And I dealt with this years ago
G7                 Cm6 
I took a hammer to every memento
    G7                  Cm6
But image on image like beads on a rosary
G7                     Cm6
pulled through my head as the music takes hold
        G7                   Cm6
and the sickener hits; I can work till I break
      G7
but I love the bones of you
Cm6                  G7
That, I will never escape

         Cm6           G7
And it's you, and it's May
          Cm6                  G7
And we're sleeping through the day
        Cm6        G7
And I'm five years ago
          Cm6            G7
And three thousand miles away
      Cm6           G7
And I can't move my arm
            Cm6                G7
Through the fear that you will wake
        Cm6        G7
And I'm five years ago
          Cm6
And three thousand miles away

(3:29)
Now it returns to the chorus, with chords G7 and Cm6

G7        Cm6        G7
And I'm five years ago
          Cm6             G7
And three thousand miles away
        Cm6        G7
And I'm five years ago
          Cm6             G7
And three thousand miles away
         Cm6           G7
And it's you, and it's May
          Cm6                  G7
And we're sleeping through the day
        Cm6        G7
And I'm five years ago
          Cm6            G7
And three thousand miles away

Hope you like it, took a while to get the Bridge right, but i'm pretty sure it is right.
