  C/G      C          C/G
Untie me , I've set no bounds

C    C/G       C
The train is getting way too loud

           F
I've gotta leave here, my girl,

                      C         C/G  C
(To) Get on with my lonely life

               G ...

I've spent twelve long months on the lam

For the fear of breaking down

Leading into Chorus:
C Cadd9/B

Am       C                 C
I find a fatal flaw in the logic of love
       C        Cadd9/B
And go outta my head
Am           C
You know the sinking stone
        F
That'll never elope
       C           G
So get used to the lonesome, girl
C        G
You must atone some, girl
C           G            F
Leave me no phone number there
              C C/G
la-de-dum etc. 
solo

----------------
Similar for the rest, here are the rest of the words.
----------------

It took me all of a year
To put the poison pill to your ear
But now I stand on honest ground, on honest ground

You wanna fight for this love,
But honey you cannot wrestle a dove
So baby it's clear 

You wanna jump and dance
But you sat on your hands
And I'll still ruin you chance
Go back to your hometown
Get your feet on the ground
And stop floating around

I find a fatal flaw in the logic of love
And go outta my head
You know the sinking stone
That'll never elope
So get used to the lonesome, girl
You must atone some, don't
Leave me no phone number there

la-de-dum (The sun is way too clear?)

End C

for transcribing most of the words and writing the capoed version
my corrections are to reflect the right key of the album version
and to add some chords that I think are played. I also fixed up
some of the lyrics.
