This is a remarkably simple song.  
I'm fairly astounded at how marvelously incorrect the other tabs are here.  
Listen to the song carefully and play along.  Some of the held-
out chords might sound unnatural, but that's just because you're 
listening to the solo guitar, and he's moving around.

The song is played in standard tuning, but with a capo on the 4th fret.

The chords labeled Em* can be played as follows 
(this isn't exactly how it is in the recording, but I think it sounds pretty good):

Intro:
Em     D     Em

Verse:
C                                 Em
Don't you cherish me to sleep, aahhhhh
C                       Em
Never keep your eyelids clipped
Em*                      D
Hold me for the pops and clicks
      C                       G
I was only for the father's crib

C     Em

Em          D      G
Hair, old, long along
      C                                 G
your neck onto your shoulder blades, aahhhhh
C                         Em
always keep that message taped
Em*                            D
Cross your breasts you won't erase
      C                   G
I was only for your very space

C

Em      D     G
Hip, under nothing
C                                   G
Propped up by your other one, face 'way from the sun
     C                  Em
Just have to keep a dialogue
Em*                            D
Teach our bodies: haunt the cause
      C                       G
I was only trying to spell a loss

C


Em        D        G
Joy, it's all founded
C                                G
Pincher with the skin inside, aahhhhh
    C                                Em
You pinned me with your black sphere eyes
Em*                             D
You know that all the rope's untied
      C                  G
I was only for to die beside

C

Bridge:

Em     G

(Still G)
So it's storming on the lake
                    D
Little waves our bodies break

Em      G

(Still G)
There's a fire going out
                  D
There's really nothing to the sound

Em     G

(Still G)
Swollen orange and light let through
                   D
Your one piece swimmer stuck to you

C

Back to the verse:
Em    D      G
Sold, I'm ever
C                           G
Open ears and open eyes, aahhhhh
C                           Em
Wake up to your starboard bride
    Em*                       D
Who goes in and then stays inside
        C                        G  
Oh the demons come, they can subside

C

Each verse stanza definitely starts on Bmaj (G in reference to the capo).

Also, the bridge bits start on Am, not Em.

These are all very basic chords. There's no trickery in this song.
