Another great song, from another great Michigan band. Transcribed by DWdrummer67. 
And, as always... enjoy!

Tuning: Standard (Capo 5th fret)
 
Intro: D, G B5, A, G, D

        D                            G
In a thousand empty bottles… in a hundred burned out cars 
      B5                 A                   G              D
In a house up in the Catskills… in all the honky-tonks and bars 
         D                                    G
All the way across the airwaves, and all the way around this land 
     B5                A      G                         D  G  B5  A  G
The ghost of Richard Manuel is… walking like a natural man

            D                                G
Well last night around the campfire… we got high on homemade wine 
     B5                 A                  G                 D
We passed around the guitar… and tried to sing “Whispering Pines” 
         D                             G
And in every sweet falsetto… that was more than I could stand 
         B5                A        G                         D  G  B5  A  G
Was the ghost of Richard Manuel just… walking like a natural man 

           D                        G
Along the keys of my piano… in the kick and in the snare 
      B5                       A                       G                     D
In getting your kicks off of parlor tricks… and in a hound dog’s hungry stare 
                    D                        G
Well He’s getting frozen up in Canada, and burned in the south land 
         B5                A         G                         D  G  B5  A  G
But the ghost of Richard Manuel still… walking like a natural man 

Short Break: D   G   B5   A   G

           D                                      G
There’s a room full of nicotine poets... three harmony guitars 
         B5          A          G   D
And a shopworn tack piano… with 32 bars                                     
            D                                   G
And the Victrola’s in the corner… spinning “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” 
         B5                A       G                        D
And the ghost of Richard Manuel is… walking like a natural man 
            G                 B5   A 
Hey, Hey Richard… Hey, Hey Richard
   G                                  A          G         D
Richard won’t you sing us… “Tears of Rage” just one more time
D   G   B5   A   G
D   G   B5   A   G   D
