As opposed to diagramming the whole song, I'm going 
to just show how to play the various sections. The 
most difficult part of playing this song is the timing,
not only with singing the words but the ascending chords
in the chorus. There's little point in writing it out 
so just listen to the song to get a feel for how it all 
comes together.

Structure:
Verse
Chorus
Verse
Chorus
Bridge
Chorus

Chords:

   E   A   Abm   F#m   B
E|-7---x----11----9----7--------------------|
B|-9---14---12----10---7--------------------|
G|-9---14---13----11---8--------------------|
D|-9---14---13----11---9--------------------|
A|-x---12---11----9----9--------------------|
E|-x---x----x-----x----x--------------------|


Verse:

Hold the E

    A   Abm  F#m   B    E(hold)
oh I'm still li - ving

        A   Abm  F#m   B   E(hold)
at the old       address

        A   Abm        F#m   B   E(hold)
and I'm wai-ting on the wea-ther

        A   Abm(hold)
that i know will pass

G#m(keep holding)
i know that its true-its gonna be a...


Chorus:

 E    F#m  Abm  A   B  C#m  A(hold) B(hold)
...good year

{This is the tricky part of the song.
Those (above)are the chords written out, 
but I find the best way to play it is 
like this: }
   E  F#m Abm  A   B  C#m   A   B
E|------------------------------7-|
B|-9--10--12--14--16--17---14---7-|
G|-9--11--13--14--16--18---14---8-|
D|-x---x---x---x---x---x---14---9-|
A|-7---9--11--12--14--16---12---9-|
E|------------------------------7-|


B              E   F#m  Abm  A   B  C#m  A(hold)
   outta the  dark-ness 
                    B(hold)
and into the fire
               E   F#m  Abm  A   B  C#m  A(hold)
ill tell ya i love ya
                                B(hold)
and my hearts in the strangest place
              E   F#m  Abm  A   B  C#m  A(hold)
thats how it star-ted
                        B(struck once, let it ring)
and thats how it ends


{From that point it goes back into a Verse-Chorus till the bridge}

Verse:
and i know your with me
its a point of pride
and its louder then lighting
in this room of mine
oh im just like you i never hear the...

Chorus:
...bad news
and i never will
we won by a landslide
are troubles are over
my sisters are married
to all my friends
yeah thats how it started

               #1

             #1
and i waited by without complaint
              #1                #1   
till all the pipe dreams-made me insane
            #2

its all over anyhow
               #2
you took your sweet time

Chorus:

   E    F#m  Abm  A   B  C#m  A(hold) B(hold)
...my eyes 

{From here it stays in a long Chorus ending on an E}

my friends and my family
they are asking of me
how long will you ramble
how long will you still repeat
the snow is still falling
and I'm almost home
i see a new year
