This is perfect, i was able to watch a video of John playing a solo version of the song 
i'm positive this is the way he plays it.  enjoy.

capo 5


C   Am   G   F   C   Am   
  F   F

C			   Am
So you don’t get to be a saint
G			  F
Martyrs never last this long
C			 Am
Guess I'll never be the one
G                    F
To defeat desire in song
Here's a marker
G		 C
Here's my naked skin
Our 'exhibit A'
F            G                 C
Put a small x where I lost my way

C      		            Am
All the actors broke their legs
G 		        F
And it’s to late to postpone
C		        Am
The producer’s getting high
G		        F
And the audience went home
C			      Am
Smile and take your awkward bow
G		             F
Turn and stumble off the stage
C		      Am
Let the rain be your applause
G		         F
Every encore sooth your rage
Squint with one eye
G	          C
Hum a show-tune wait
For your right to say
F                    G                   C
oh that’s where you must have lost your way

C   Am   G   F
C   Am   G   F

F             G              C	              F
Megaphones in helicopters squeal “hey are you okay?”
F                   G                    C
Searchlights circle, where we lost our way

C        Am             G		     F
All our accidents were purposeful and felt
C             Am           G                F
Stripped of providence or any way to tell
C          Am             G                  F
But our intentions were intangible and sweet
C           Am              G
Sick with simple math and shy discoveries
F			          G
Piled up against our impending defeat.
