Rodriguez - Cant Get Away chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Came across that piece on sugarman.org. An awesome site when you want to know 
about Sixto Rodriguez. However, listening to the song and watching some videos I 
reckon the version with the 7 chords much more fits what he plays. Check it out

    
Em             A          Em7       A7
Born in the troubled city
Em                A     Em7   A7
In Rock and Roll, USA
Em                           A        Em7   A7
In the shadow of the tallest building
Em                  A         Em7     A7
I vowed I would break away
Em                     A       Em7    A7
Listened to the Sunday actors
    Em                     A      Em7
But all they would ever say
                             Em
That you can't get away from it
A                          Em      A
No you can't get away
                           Em                     
No you can't get away from it
A                        Em
No you can't get away
Em             A          Em7       A7
Schooled on the city sidewalks
Em             A          Em7       A7
Coldness at every turn
Em             A          Em7       A7
Knew I had to find the exits
Em             A          Em7       A7
I never, ever would return
Em             A          Em7       A7
Scoffed at the prophet's omens
Em             A          Em7       A7
That said I would live to learn
Em             A          Em7     
That you can't get away from it
Em.         A
no you can't get away
Em.       A.   
no you can't get away from it
Em.      A
no you can't get away

Em             A          Em7       A7
Going unaided (up 80?) toward the west coast
Em             A          Em7       A7
Stopped in the sleepy town
Em             A          Em7       A7
Left my change and walked out
Em             A          Em7       A7
I didn't even turn around
Em             A          Em7       A7
What they were getting next to
Em             A          Em7       A7
Was that old familiar sound
Em             A          Em7       A7
That you can't get away from it
Em.        A
no you can't get away
Em.      A
no you can't get away from it
Em.     A
no you can't get away

Em             A          Em7       A7
In a hotel room in Amsterdam
Em             A          Em7       A7
On a wild and windy August night
Em             A          Em7       A7
As a cloud passed over a cold moon
Em             A          Em7       A7
My heart was seized with terror and fright
Em             A          Em7       A7
Seeping up through the floorboards
Em             A          Em7       A7
Coming in through the walls
Em             A          Em7       A7
Coming in through the doorway
Em             A          Em7       A7
Ringing up and down the halls
Em             A          Em7      
That you can't get away from it
Em
no you can't get away
A       Em            A7
no you can't get away from it
Em      A      Em7    A7
no you can't get away
Em         A
no you can't get away
Em       A
no you can't get away
Em      A
no you can't get away...
