                I've seen several versions of this song posted around the 
internet, but wasn't satisfied with any of them, so here's 
my own work on it. 
 
 
Chords: o= open string x= not played 
 
     G   C  Dsus2 
e    3   o   o           The main problem with other tabs is 
b    3   1   3           the Dsus2 chord, which many confuse 
g    o   o   2           with simply D. But if you listen 
d    o   2   o           carefully you can hear the 
a    2   3   o           difference.  Billy uses this chord 
E    3   o   x           in Tonight, Tonight too. 
 
 
Other notes: This is played with three guitars. 
  
Guitar 1: Phaser/flanger w/delay and reverb. (Only plays the   
          changes. Phase/Flange and the delay are increased      
          after "on my own...)" 
Guitar 2: Acoustic (strums chords throughout) 
Guitar 3/piano: Clean Electric (plays small lead riff   
                                throughout) 
 
 
Intro: G x3 
 
  C              Dsus2            G      
Speak to me in a language I can hear 
  C       Dsus2           G     
Humor me before I have to go 
  C               Dsus2         G 
Deep in thought I forgive everyone 
         C               Dsus2            G 
as the cluttered streets greet me once again 
  G                C      Dsus2 
I know I can't be late 
  G                       C     Dsus2 
supper's waiting on the table 
  G                          C    Dsus2 
Tomorrow is just an excuse away 
  G                                  C    Dsus2 
So I turn my collar up and face the cold, 
(let Dsus2 ring) G (as soon as "own..") 
on my own. . . 
  C                Dsus2            G 
The earth laughs beneath my heavy feet 
  C                Dsus2            G  
at the blasphemy in my old jangly walk 
  C                Dsus2            G 
steeple guide me to my heart and home 
  C               Dsus2            C 
the sun is up and out and down again 
  C 
I know I'll make it 
  G  
love can last forever 
  C  
graceful swans of never 
Dsus2           C 
topple to the earth 
  G                    C    Dsus2 
and you could make it last forever,  
 G                 C    Dsus2 
you could make it last forever  
 C    
and for a moment I lose myself 
 Dsus2                              G 
wrapped up in the pleasure of the world 
 C                      Dsus2            G 
i've journeyed here and there and back again 
 C                           Dsus2            G 
but in the same old haunts I still find my friends 
 C            Dsus2       G 
mysteries not ready to reveal 
 C             Dsus2      C  
sympathies I'm ready to return 
 C 
I'll make the effort 
 G 
love can last forvever 
 C 
graceful swans of never 
 Dsus2          C 
topple to the earth 
 Dsus2              C 
tomorrow's just an excuse  
 Dsus2               C      G 
tomorrow's just and excuse away 
 G             C    Dsus2     
could make it last forever, 
 G                 C    Dsus2 
you could make it last forever, 
 G                 C    Dsus2 
you could make it last forever 
C    Dsus2 (let ring) 
you, 
          G  
forever  you... 
 
Outro: G x4 
 
   For the piano/Clean electric here's what is played: 
 
riff 1: 
e|-------------|       Riffs 1&2 are played whenever a G is  
b|9-8-9-11-9-8-|       played pretty much. For the intro and 
                       outro they alternate, and for the           
riff 2:                rest Riff 1 is used almost 
e|------11-8---|       exclusively. Just listen to the CD   
b|9-8-9------11|       for the timing and changes between              
                       the two.
