Audience - Waverly Stagecoach chords

Audience is a British art rock band. They were originally active from 
1969 to 1973, a relatively long band lifespan during that turbulent 
and highly productive era (they outlived Cream by a full year) 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audience_%28band%29 . They reformed in 2004 
and remain active http://www.audienceareback.com/ . Their self-titled 
debut album, recorded for Polydor, contained this song, Waverly 
Stagecoach. This song is notable for two reasons (besides being a 
highly infectious meme that sticks in your head): 1. It is essentially 
a short-short horror story told in lyrics, and 2. it uses the same distinctive main 
chord sequence as in Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay" without
sounding like it. Although not specifically rare, this album's reprints 
are difficult to locate. You can find bittorrent downloads so you can 
hear this song, but by all means if you intend to keep it, support the
artists by buying it.
