Guitar 1 and 2 basically play the same thing throughout the verse...

D         E
I see the shapes,
G               A
I remember from maps.
D         E
I see the shoreline.
G              A
I see the whitecaps.
D          E        G                 A
A baseball diamond, nice weather down there.
D          E     G                             A
I see the school and the houses where the kids are.
D          E   G                    A
Places to park by the fac’tries and buildings.
D             E   G                A
Restaunts and bar for later in the evening.
D                   E          G                   A
Then we come to the farmlands, and the undeveloped areas.
D          E       G                     A
And I have learned how these things work together.
D         E       G                        A
I see the parkway that passes through them all.
D          E       G                    A
And I have learned how to look at these things and I say,

Here's the pattern for the Chorus:

Guitar 1 (slide)
|---------------------------------------------|
|-17-----17\12-----12\10----------------------|
|-17-----17\12-----12\10----------------------|
|-17-----17\12-----12\10----------------------|
|---------------------------------------------|

|Guitar 2

|-1---------3---------1----------------1-------|
|-0---------0---------2------------------------|
|-2---------0---------3------------------------|
|-3---------2---------3------------------------|
|-----------3---------1------------------------|

C          G                 F
I wouldn’t live there if you paid me.
C          G               F
I couldn’t live like that, no siree!
C          G                 F
I couldn’t do the things the way those people do.
C          G                 F
I couldn’t live there if you paid me to.


Outro: (While he goes Goo goo ga ga ga)

  C                  G                  F

I tabbed this listening to the live version off of The Name of This Band is Talking 
so it might be a little bit different in some parts from the album version
