This is a pretty number off Town by Town. It's fairly simple. I am going by the 
album version since I have not heard them play it live.

Em    G   C D   G

Verse 1:
My heart is like the white line
C             D             C        D    G
Divided, separated in these feelings over you
My mind, it is also like the white line      when without a bassist,
C         D            C       D     G       walk down G G/F# G/F
Endlessly searching, a man without a clue

Em                               G           D
You've got me thinking there's a fire down below
C                    G             D            G     
'Round and 'round in circles is as far as I can go
C                            G      G/f# Em
Same old repetition, feeling up and down again
G           C   D *
Sorrow is a highway
   C     D        G
It never seems to end

Verse 2:
Another day, it is ending
  C              D  
I feel my feet upon the ground
    C         D    G
And know they walk alone
What do I care now though if another day is ending
    C               D              C         D      G
The days will end until my name is carved in stone alone

Verse 3:
The time has come for leavin'
    C             D            C      D         G
The time to fall away like the pedals leave the rose
But what good does this leavin'
      C                   D
I can still hear my heart breakin'
    C        D     G
the sound it never goes

[ Chorus ]

    C                           G      G/f# Em
The same old repetition feelin' up and down again
G          C   D *
Sorry is a highway
   C     D        G
It never seems to end

Outro: Intro chords

*The riff played runs down G Aeolian starting at A on the 3rd string after the D 
chord. I just mess around with it, Adam is too fast.
