D          F#             G              D
C’mon understanding visit me for once today
B>                 A>           G>
I’ll be grateful you don’t even have to stay
D>                      F#>         G>             D>
It must be hard for you to get over to my side of town
B>          A>            G>
I know there’s many people like me to be found
B>                   A>
If you come knockin’ at my door
G>        D>
And I am not around
B>               A>              G>
Foolishness came by and we’re downtown
B>                          A>             G>         
Please don’t leave, Please come on in and make
yourself at home
B>                      A>             G  G-F#-G  
G-F#-G   G-F#-G
I know you’re probably used to being alone
Everyone keeps telling me you’re something that you’re
But I know if I met you I’d like you a lot
What exactly does it take to bring you to my door
By the time that you arrive, I won’t live here no more
A>  G-F#
E>                        G>
What can I do? There’s no one here but me
D>       A>         G-F#
And nothin on TV
E>                      G>
Where could you be? I really wouldn’t know
D>                   A>
Where else you might go

A>   G-F#
B                     A             G
I know your probably used to being alone

Good basic chart! This song is full of "jazzy" chords with lots of 7ths and cool things, so I think a few clarifications would help:

D/F# is actually Dmaj7: xx0222 (same where says D/C#)
A#7 is actually F#7: 242322
D/A is actually Em7: 020000 (like in the chorus)
Bm/A is actually Bm7: 224232
F#m is actually F#m7: 242222 (in the bridge)
Em7/A is actually Asus: 002230 (end of bridge before resolving to A)

My voice is low so I also worked this up in the key of G and added a few more passing tones/7th chords to emphasize that feel. I can submit it if anyone's interested?
