This is a depressing, yet great song. really  fun to sing and play.
I didn't see a correct tab anywhere, so here it is.
I was nice enough to include the exact times when the parts come in too.

INTRO:

(00:18)
F#m D#5 D

(00:31)
A F#m D A

(00:50)
A
My father had dementia
C#m
He lied in bed for months
F#m
Once in a while he'd call me
        Dm
And ask me to fly down
Bm
I told him that I'd love to
      D
But I had things to do
                   A              A/Ab    F#m
And so he died without his son
  Bm                                             D
I heard about it drunk after a show


(1:14)

A
My mother battled cancer
C#m
For over seven years
F#m
I nursed her and I held her
          Dm
When time was running out
       Bm
The night before she left me
              D
I drank scotch all night
                                     A       A/Ab            F#m
And thanked her for everything she'd done
Bm                                                D
Raising me alone wasn't much fun


(1:37)

A
So Dad I can forgive you, 
       E
But I'll never forget, 
Bm                                                  D
Months I wouldn't see you and when I did You'd be 
A
out with your friends all night
E
Alone and only nine
  Bm
I watched the outer limits
           D
While scared out of my mind
A
I wonder if you felt the same
                                              A/Ab
The days before you died
F#m
I wonder if you even knew

Why I wouldn't come around
Bm
I bet if you had been there, 
                                                  
There wouldn't be this song

A       A/Ab
2006 
F#m
goodbye parents
                       D
For once sincere
                               A
2006 my orphan year


(2:32)
