To get the feel of the strumming and solos etc.. you should listen
to the song, I know it was released as a B-side to the My Hero single
in the UK, I don't know about releases in America though.

All chords are power chords, except during the verse, and the minor
chords. You can also try picking the Dm and Am chords at the beginning of
the chorus if you have two guitars, for a nice effect.
The chorus can also be played with Dm7 and Am7, but I don't think it
sounds right like that.

Chords used:
   EADGBe
Dm xx0231  or Dm7 : xx0211
Am x02210  or Am7 : x02010
Em 022000
G  355xxx
A  577xxx
C  x355xxx
D  x577xx

Key:
10b   - Bend note
13h   - Hammer-on
12p   - Pull-off
13/10 - Slide to next note
10~~~ - Hold note
(7)   - Ghost note, don't necessarily play it
(x12) - Play 12 times

A
Winding your way down on Baker Street
A
Light in your head, and dead on your feet
     Em                     G
Well another crazy day, you drink the night away
    D
And forget about everything

A
This city's dance makes you feel so cold, it's got
A
So many people but its got no soul
        Em                   G
And its taken you so long to find out you were wrong
         D
When you thought it held everything.

Dm                            Am
You used to think that it was so easy
Dm                          Am
You used to say that it was so easy
    C              G             D
But you're trying, you're trying now
Dm                          Am    
Another year and then you'd be happy
Dm                                Am
Just one more year and then you'd be happy
    C              G             A    G
But you're crying, you're crying now

--Repeat Solo--

A
Way down the street there's a light in his place
A
You open the door, he's got that look on his face
       Em                               G
And he asks you where you've been, you tell him who you've seen
        D
And you talk about everything


A
He's got this dream about buying some land
A
He's gonna give up the crack and the one night stands
    Em                             G
And then he'll settle down, it's a quiet little town
    D
And forget about everything

Dm                        Am
But you know he'll always keep moving
Dm                        Am 
You know he's never gonna stop moving
C                   G                D
Cause he's rolling, he's the rolling stone
Dm                          Am
And when you wake up it's a new morning
Dm                        Am
The sun is shining it's a new morning
C                 G            A     D
And you're going, you're going home

--Repeat Intro--

--Repeat Solo 1--
