This song is mostly chords, but there is a little variation so I went
ahead and tabbed it:

The strumming pattern is approximate. You might have to listen to the
album if you want to learn it absolutely perfectly, but I play it this
way and it sounds pretty good. This pattern continues through all the
verses, or if you prefer just chords:

A chord diagramC majorC                                            A chord diagramA minorAm
All this talk of getting old it's getting me down my love

                A chord diagramE minorEm             A chord diagramFF          A chord diagramG+G        A chord diagramC majorC           A chord diagramG+G  A chord diagramC majorC
Like a cat in a bag waiting to drown this time I'm coming down

                                                 A chord diagramA minorAm
And I know you're thinking of me as you lay down on your side

                    A chord diagramE minorEm                      A chord diagramFF           A chord diagramG+G
Now the drugs don't work they just make you worse but I know I'll see

     A chord diagramC majorC            A chord diagramG+G  A chord diagramC majorC
your face  again


and similarly for the other verses.


Chorus:

        A chord diagramFF     A chord diagramE minorEm            A chord diagramA minorAm               A chord diagramG+G
So baby ooooooooh if heaven calls I'm coming too

              A chord diagramFF A chord diagramE minorEm                 A chord diagramA minorAm                  A chord diagramG+G
Just like you said if you leave my life I'm better off dead


And that's pretty much it. Enjoy!
