I can't believe no one has posted this one yet. A great song by one of the best artists around.

Intro/Riff1: E-A-Ab-F#m-E
verse: E-A-B-C#m-B-{R1}-E
chorus: {R2}-A-B-C#m-B-A, B-A-{R3}-F#m-E
Riff2: E-F#m-Ab-A  (Basically riff1 inverted)
Riff3: A-Ab-E-F#m

*note: I think the F#m's might simply be F#, but it sounds more accurate to me as 
a minor chord when I play it.

Intro: E-A-Ab-F#m-E   {rpt}
E                   A
Whispers of ancients buried by dust,
B                 C#m
Echoes of ages in canyons of rust,
    B          {Riff1:    A    Ab  F#m}E  {rpt riff1}
Is heaven so lonely? I'll know soon enough
{Riff2}
E    F#m  Ab  A               B
Cold as   the clay, dark as a mine,
         C#m B                 A
Wasting away blood, sweat, and grime
            B                 A {Riff3:A Ab  E F#m}               E {Rpt R1}
Panning for gold, picking for dimes,  ly-in' & waiting for better times

{Verse} E-A-B-C#m-B-{R1}-E
The tools of the trade lie shopworn and old
The skills of the master done died with his soul
And the worklike routine is so lonely and cold

{Chorus} {R2}-A-B-C#m-B-A, B-A-{R3}-F#m-E
Cold as   the clay, dark as a mine,
Wasting away blood, sweat, and grime
Panning for gold, picking for dimes,  ly-in' & waiting for better times

{Verse} E-A-B-C#m-B-{R1}-E
The land was converted, the river was moved,
The village expanded, some say it's improved,
But the lingering feature is a grim attitude

{Chorus} {R2}-A-B-C#m-B-A, B-A-{R3}-F#m-E
Cold as   the clay, dark as a mine,
Wasting away blood, sweat, and grime
Panning for gold, picking for dimes,  ly-in' & waiting for better times
