A really nice song by Joe Henry. These chords are based on his 'Civilians' album and a 
video, in which he does this song acoustic.

Am      x02210
Am/G#   4x2210 (or 4x22xx *1)
Am/G    3x2210
Am/F#   2x2210
F       133211
G       320033
C/G     332010
E7      020100
Dm      xx0231

*1 The Am/G# could give you some problems to play. Use your pinky to play the G# (4), 
it!
You can also play this chord simplified like:

4x22xx

Use your ring finger for the G# (4) and your index finger , barred, for the two '2', the 
and a notes. You can mute the A string (the first x) with your ringfinger and the other 
'x' with your index finger.
If you chose this way to play it, you might want to play the Am/G and Am/F# in that 
simplified way. That makes:

Am/G  3x22xx
Am/F# 2x22xx

Use your middlefinger for the G and your thumb for the F# (2). You 
leave your index finger unchanged, like the Am/G# as shown above.
ENJOY

Introduction: Am Em Am F G

verse:
   Am           Am/G#   Am/G           Am/F#
If you fear the angels above while you sleep
     F           Am         G             Am
Then I'll be the blood, you paint on your door
     Am         Am/G#      Am/G         Am/F#
Your dream is a worry that nothing will keep, but
F         Am        G             Am
time is a story and there will be more

chorus:
     F          C/G        E7           Am    Am/G
Your dream is a worry that nothing will keep,
    F         C/G       G             Am   >  back 
intro chords
but time is a story and there will be more

chords for next verses and chorus, same as above.

and death in disgrace can seduce anyone
that needs to believe there’s judgment at hand
or God may be kind and see you like a son, but
time is a lion when you are a lamb

Or God may be kind and see you like a son, but
time is a lion when you are a lamb

The years see the best of intentions and greed
they come without shame, they'll leave you with some
men become old when their hurt becomes need, but
time is a lover and your time is young

Men become old when their hurt becomes need, but
time is a lover and your time is young

bridge:
    G                     Am
The sun is a soldier, out crawling the hills
        G             Am
setting fire to every house that’s in view
G                       Am
lighting the ruin of my hope and my will
                Dm             G
till I’m like a shadow and I’m falling on you,
crawling on you..
Oh you know how I do..   (repeat intro)

So sleep here with me and I’ll keep you close
for now while i try to live up to you
You can’t see the challenge of this I suppose, but
time is a dare and I’m trying to

You can’t see the challenge of this I suppose, but
time is a dare and I’m trying to

(repeat chorus chords for the last lines)
time is a dare and I’m trying to ( 3x )

end on Am
