[EDIT: Turns out the Dm was an Am and I am completely blind for not noticing it. Thanks 
to Charlie Rubash for the correction!]
If you have any more corrections please email me at get.off.my.suit(at)gmail(dot)com, or 
submit a new version if you
are that way inclined :)

*** A Note on C ***
Charlie has also said that the C should be a C/G, i.e.

|--0--|
|--1--|
|--0--|
|--2--|
|--3--|
|--3--|

And it certainly gives the chord a fuller sound, but I don't think Matt plays the low E 
on that chord - at least not at the start.
It's down to personal choice, I think. It certainly might be useful to substitute C/G in 
the later verses where it all gets a bit loud
and exciting.

Standard Tuning
Capo 2

Thank you for the invite
   F               C
To dance on golden streets

Leave the broken skyline

And charcoal cloud debris

I would likely join you if I weren't busy

Sit back, relax, and hold my head to the sun.

C
We will sing to thunder
F                 C
Clap as the earth shakes
C
Hug under a hurricane
      F                C
As we bypass the fiery lake

Am             F                 C
I will read my scripture in Dostoevsky

Change my television to twenty three
       G                   F                         C
I will sit back, relax and wait for what's coming to me

Sit back, relax and hold my head to the sea.

We will leave our sails on trees

Lift our lamps unto the streets

May all the kings and soldiers see

              F        G                C
Our lives are lonely enough without destruction
Am                  F
Calm your cares and families
    G
And I will hold the morning for you

C                               F              C
Take the time for townships and classics to be read
C                                   F                C
Finding all the soft skin that will fit in a feather bed
Am               F                   C
Let me spread my paper and sleep for centuries
    Am                 F                  C
The door will be there if you choose to return
       G                   F                 C
I will sit back, relax and watch the mountaintops burn
G                   F                       C
Sit back, relax and wait for my voice to be heard.

We will leave our sails on trees
F     C              G      C
While chariots swing by the breeze
F        C       G      C
Lift our lamps unto the streets
    F       C         G        C
May all the kings and soldiers see

Am                F        G                C
All our lives are lonely enough without destruction
Am                  F
Calm your cares and families
    G             C
And be part of division
Am                F        G                C
All our lives are lonely enough without destruction
Am                  F
Calm your cares and families
    G
And I will hold the morning for you
    G                               C
And I will hold the morning for you
