C                      D              G
So there's hundreds of auburn alabama acres
             C          D                G
with rows of red roofs over warm farmers daughters
               C               D          Em
who've got no intention of inviting me in
                        C             D             G
space shines all above me so i settle myself under it.
      C                             D            G
when i wake up i'm back in my crowded city apartment
            C           D                 G
some random men doing work off in the kitchen
                    C                D                    Em  
stacking mattresses up now to the ceiling and down to the floor.
                        C                    D                 G
my fathers sick in the hallway i hear him whistlin under the door.
            C                           D                              G
i rush to lift him but you all know i am weak and you know that he is heavy.
                           C                 D                G
there's no blood in his cheeks but he's smiling straight at me.
                      C                          D                     
I ask the thickest of the workers "would you please come and help me out?"
                   C                      D                            G
he comes ambling over and says "sir, i love how your whistling sounds"
          C                                      D
so now i drag him through the kitchen to the living room and down on the
                    C                   D                G
he says, "son i'm embarassed, but the sides of my head hurt.
                      C                  D              Em    
i just know that i'm tired and i could surely use some rest."
                       C                   D                           
i tear a mattress down for him and i say, "here dad sleep some on this."
             C             G
i wake for real and it's over.
     C  C/B   Am                       Em   G
i'm alone in acres and my dad is still dead.
                C      D            G                       
but if you underneath one of those rooftops, look out your window and invite
me on in.
                           C                   D             
'cause it's cold and i'm lonely and i could sure use a friend
                          C                  D               
yeah it's cold and i'm lonely and i could sure use a friend.
                    C                      D                G
it's cold and i'm lonely and i could sure use a friend yeah

These are the basic chords. The intro posted is pretty close so you can work with that. 
are lots of walking bass parts and such but I am far too lazy to figure out and tab all
