Dr. Dog  "Im Standing In the Light"

A chord pattern that works for both his live version 
and album or "piano song" version as the other guy put it. 
It's a simple early Dylan like chord pattern. 
The Passed Away album I think is done mostly from old 2 track recordings.
 This particular song has like a muffled mellotron on it that I really love, 
and I like the overall, lo-fi,  almost child like, feeling to it. And I love the 
words just as much. 

 the rest of the chords are straight forward, these are just the variations
 I use to play this song:

C  F   C F   C Em Am   F G C   

C         F                C           F
Well I set fire to an apple tree
     C       Em                 Am
And put it back out like a bad memory
      F                 G                  C
And I washed my hands in the flood

C            F                  C             F
Well I took a sip of the trouble Ive stirred
    F               Em               Am
And I spit it back out like a four letter word
       F          G           C                       
And I lost my head in the fire

 C             F              C            F
Well I sat up high on the walls we built
        Em                Am  
And I felt just like a fool on stilts
  F       G          C          C7
But I just can't get down

  F                    Em
Olives, and a pair of eyes 
     Am                 F
Are floating in my glass
        C                        Em
And nothing has ever seemed so strange
    F                G    Gm
But this I know will pass

Well Ive seen as far as the eye can see
And I blew my mind in the lottery
But I lost my chance
Well Ive been told about the fiery skies
And Ive told my fair share of lies
But I believe in mine
Well Ive known folks as smarts as dogs
And Ive known folks like bumps on logs
And theyre all fine by me

Blue skies and my share of love 
Are somewhere in the past
And nothing worth anything
Is strong enough to last

Well Ive done my time for the ills Ive caused
And Ive paid my dues in the bets Ive lost
And Ive got room enough to die
Well Ive seen as far as my eyes can see
And Ive tried my hand at the mystery
Yet I walk in the land of the blind
Yeah I made my bed in which I lie
And Ive burnt the bridge to the other side
And Im standing in the light
