That Western Skyline - The Dawes

This is wrong, but it works for me. Corrections are definitely welcomed if not required.
chorda A Bm D A

[A]Oh, Lou- I'd like to [Bm]let you know... [D]that I do not feel [A]welcome
All the birds, the trees, the [Bm]falling snow, [D]no they were not made for [A]me
And all this is where her heart resides... we met in California
She saw cities, promise reaching through my eyes, and she turned her self away

[D]Well how I curse that western [A]skyline
[D]And yet I thanked it for my [A]start
[D]Oh Lou, though my [A]dreams did [D]not come [Bm]true... [D]no they only came a[A]part

So I followed her here to Birmingham... where the soil is so much richer
And though my aching pride might guide my hand, she did not ask for me to come
So I wait for her all through the day, as if I wait for her surrender
And every time I get her to look my way, she says I'm not where I belong

But I watch her father preach on Sundays
And all the hymnals of my heart
But oh Lou, no my dreams did not come true; no they only came apart

[C#m]Ohhhh, [A]oh [E]oh [A]oh [D]oh
[C#m]Ohhhh, [A]oh [E]oh [A]oh [E]oh
[C#m]Ohhhh, [A]oh [E]oh [A]oh [D]oh
[C#m]Ohhhh, [A]oh [E]oh [A]oh [E]oh

All the snow fall this time of year, it's not what Birmingham is used to
I get the feeling that I brought it here, and now I'm taking it away

But let's share one more drink together
Before I go reload my car
An oh, Lou no my dreams did not come true- no they only came apart

Ohhhh, oh oh oh oh
Take me home...
Ohhhh, oh oh oh oh
Ohhhh, oh oh oh oh
Ohhhh, oh oh oh oh

I've watched quite a few videos of Taylor playing this song. Its not an easy song to play the way he plays it but it is in standard tuning.

You can see my tabbed version of the song and a few other Dawes songs that I thought were posted incorrectly online at www.thirdstringshirts.com/tab.
