       D               Dsus4    D5                          G
You'll recall from the sagas I hope Grettir's last stand at Drangey
        A/C#                        G/B                D  Dsus2 D Dsus2
How his grip on the sword made his enemies cut off his hand
        D           Dsus4          D5                     G
If he'd fled here instead, and had tasted this terrible coffee
                A/C#                   G/B
Or read these letters you sent he'd surrender
                   D Dsus2 D Dsus2
and lay the blade down

         G(open)    A7/4
And it's Hall - o - ween
       D/F#                           G
Skinny ghosts dress like cowboys and rest
       A       Bmadd2    Bm  Bmadd2 Bm
at the railing by my door
         G             A             D   Dsus2  D   Dsus2
On their way from the children's ward
     D            Dsus4          D5                 G
Bev Monroe and his Pembina Valley boys play at the party
      A/C#                   G/B                      D  Dsus2  D Dsus2
And I practice my English on nurses, "Oh, that's a nice name."
         D           Dsus4          D5                         G
And they may ask for mine, but the burns on my back from the x-rays
        A/C#                G/B             D Dsus2 D Dsus2
Say I shouldn't show anyone anything ever again

   G(open)   A7/4
In another year
         D/F#                G
I'll be buried or shivering here.
         A      Bmadd2 Bm  Bmadd2 Bm
Coughing at the grey spittoon
         G            A         D Dsus2 D Dsus2
Painted orange by the harvest moon

D - Dsus4 - D5      G
A/C# - G/B - D - Dsus2 - D - Dsus2
D - Dsus4 - D5      G
A/C# - G/B - D - Dsus2 - D - Dsus2

         G(open)  A7/4
Pack up mother's clothes
          D/F#                  G
Drive her down to the new Betel Home
         A       Bmadd2 Bm Bmadd2 Bm
Sell the boat to Arnison

And then go...

         G               A            Bmadd2 Bm Bmadd2 Bm
stand up straight in the place you're longing for
          G          A
And don't write to me anymore

Holy crap I really wish you would have tabbed out the chords. Some of us are total noobs and have no idea what an A/C#, or A7/4, or D/F# or etc.... Or maybe it's just me. I imagine it sounds great though.
