I figured out these chords from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSVzvBciFiU
The timing is probably a little off, just listen to the song and you should get it.
On a lot of the C's he will go from 2-0-2 on the D string, and do the same (2-0-2) on the A string for the G's,
just make sure to listen for those.

Capo 2nd fret
Fmaj7: x33210

C            Fmaj7
I woke up to shorebirds.
C                       Am      G
I must be close to the sea.
C                      Fmaj7
I walked through the parking lot,
         C                    Am        G
felt the pavement burning my bare feet.
Dm             Am
I stumble out eastward,
C                          G
pushed my way through the reeds.
C             Fmaj7      
I woke up to shorebirds.
               C             Am    G
I dreamed about drowning at sea.

C                   Fmaj7
I'm staring out at nothing.
C         Am      G
Carolina coast.
C                       Fmaj7
I'll wade through the shallows.
 C                            Am      G
It feels like I'm chasing your ghost.
Dm            Am
I think about drowning.
C                   G
I'd lay down and let go.
C                Fmaj7
I'll see you in heaven,
        C                Am    G 
everyone that left me alone.

C               Fmaj7
I reached in my pocket,
C               Am    G
to pull out a light.
C             Fmaj7             
Forgot I threw out my smokes weeks ago.
C                  Am     G
Oh I can't get it right.
Dm                 Am
But I found your lilies.
C                         G
They're dead and they're dry.
C                     Fmaj7
I'll plant them here seaside.
      C                      Am    G
I'll pray they come back to life.

        C   Am   G
You and I.
        C   Am   G
You and I.
        C   Am   G
You and I.
        C   Am   G
You and I.

C       Fmaj7
On the horizon,
C                        Am    G
there's a boat fighting tide.
C                     Fmaj7
All rust stained and pale blue,
    C                     Am     G
it's nearing the end of its life.
Dm                    Am
But somehow it keeps floating,
C                   G
all banged up but alive.
C                  Fmaj7
And I guess I feel better then.
C                    Am    G
I won't lay down and die.

C               Am         G
I'm not coming home tonight, no,
C                  Am         G
no I'm not coming home tonight, no,
C                  Am         G
no I'm not coming home tonight,
      C              Am   G
without Dianne by my side, no.

Huh, I know that's an Fmaj7 chord, but I didn't think that sounded right when I played along with the song. I may be wrong however.
