Verse 1:
Em                                                        G
Margaret arrayed the rocks around the hull before it was sinking 
Em                                                             G [or play Riff 1]
A million stones, a million bones, a million holes within the chinking
Am                             C                                          
And painting rings around your eyes these peppered holes
                 G [or play Riff 2]
So filled with crying
Am                          C                                  G
A whisper weighed upon the tattered down where you and I were lying

Em                                                    G
Tell me now, tell me this, A forest's son, a river's daughter 
Em                                                              G [or play Riff 1]
A willow on the willow wisp, our ghosts will wander all of the water
Am                        C                                     G [or play Riff 2]
So let's be married here today these rushing waves to bare our witness 
Am                          C                             G       Em  D
And we will lie like river stones rolling only where it takes us 

    C                Am           G         Em              D
But I pulled you and I called you here   (Didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I?)
    Am               C             G       Em
And I caught you and I brought you here  (Didn’t I......
       D         Am   C/B   C       D                 G
These hazards of love,        never more will trouble us

Verse 3: (use verse 2 chords)
Oh Margaret the lapping waves are licking quietly at our ankles 
another bow another breath this brilliant chills come for the shackle
With this long last rush of air we speak our vows and sorry whispers
when the waves came crashing down, he closed his eyes and softly kissed her

Chorus: (use above chorus chords)
But I pulled you and I called you here, 
And I caught you and I brought you here 
These hazards of love, never more will trouble us. 
And these hazards of love, never more will trouble us.

Pretty much every time you move from Am to C you should play a Cmaj9 (x20010) or something like that (with the B in the bass) to transition.

Also the outro riff is the same as your riff 1, with the strum at the end instead of the walk up to the A.
