I'm not certain when to play a D7 instead of a D, but i don't think it matters very much...
[F] [G] [Am] [E]  
[F]( T[G]ab [Am]from: )
[Am]All the way back [E]home
I'm telling [C]you I caught the [E7]sun
Creeping [Am]up behind my [D]shoulder
[Bm]another day's be[E]gun
I was f[Am]ollowing a tr[E]ail
I'd never [C]been along be[E7]fore
Chasing d[F]arkened skies a[D7]bove me[Bm]
[E]Looking like the s[C]pring
Like the [Am]winter
And the m[F]orning[Dm7] [G] [E] [Am] [Am]
If there's a [F]place I want to [E]go
Then I'll be t[C]here with you[Am]
'Cos in my d[F]reams the things
I'm [G]wishing for
Keep [F]coming true[E] [F] [E]
[Am]Now a new day [E]comes
Clears the [C]darkness out of s[E7]ight
And the s[Am]hadows that were [D]sleeping
Come and [Bm]dance beneath the [E]light
And I'm [Am]trying hard to [E]hide
Keep the [C]sun out of my [E7]eyes
Close them [F]tight And now I'm [D7]waiting
for the [Bm]moon to [E]rise[Am] [Am]
[F] [E] [C] [Am]  
[F] [G] [F] [E] [F] [E]  
[C] [C] [F] [F] [G] [E]  
Don't t[Am]ry to say to [E]me
That this was [C]never meant to [E7]be
'Cos the [Am]days are long where [D]I come from
The n[Bm]ext few days I'm [E]free
There's a [Am]train I want to [E]catch
But it won't [C]leave here for a [E7]while
Till [F]darkness fills the [D7]eastern sky
And [Bm]streetlights stretch for [E]miles
Through the s[C]pring
And the [Am]winter
and the [F]morning[Dm7]
[C] lala [Am]lalalala
[F] lala [G]lalalala
(play 3x then end on on a C)
