There are two ways of playing this song, with a capo on 5, or without a capo. 
Kate plays it live with the capo, and that version is easier to play, but I think 
the version without the capo sounds closer to the album version, and has the advantage 
that you don’t need to have a capo to play it, although the chords are a little harder. 
So I tabbed the whole song with the chords for the capo version. If you want to play 
it without the capo you have to play a C instead of a G, a F instead of Cadd9/C, 
A G instead of D, etc.
At Live shows Kate sometimes play a Cadd9 and others play a C, but they sound pretty 
much the same, so you can choose which one you prefer to play.

G Cadd9 D G Cadd9 D
Cadd9                  G
I got this ticket in my hand
   Cadd9    D              G
And I got a long, long day ahead
     Em7                     Am
And I got a hell of a lot of reasons to be sad
               C                 D             G
But I've got a hundred more that keep me coming back

Cadd9                         G
I got these worn out red boots on
  Cadd9     D                 G
And I got a brand new favorite song
   Em7                                    Am
And I can name some people who'd say that I got it all wrong
          C                  D              G
But I know plenty more who've been there all along

                G
I'd rather make sandcastles
                  D          Em7
Instead of these wide-world decisions
  Cadd9                    D
I knew, I knew it all was catching up to me, yeah
                   G
And I don't have a plan at all
               D          Em7
But I got this six-string religion
    Cadd9                       Am
And I do, I do believe a song can heal me
D                G
 It's enough for me, yeah

Cadd9 D G

Cadd9                    G
I had this picture in my head
Cadd9      D             G
Of where I oughta be and when
Em7                                     Am
But it's just like the good advice that John gave when he said,
          C                   D            G
"Life, it happens while you're busy making plans"

                G
I'd rather make sandcastles
                  D          Em7
Instead of these wide-world decisions
  Cadd9                    D
I knew, I knew it all was catching up to me, yeah
                   G
And I don't have a plan at all
               D          Em7
But I got this six-string religion
    Cadd9                       Am
And I do, I do believe a song can heal me
D                G
 It's enough for me, yeah

Cadd9 D 


Cadd9                          G
Where I'm laughing is where I'm home
Cadd9            D                      G
But you know how fast it makes the time go
Em7                                           Am
And there was nothing like the first time that I saw open road
           C            D             G
And wasn't terrified to ride it on my own

Cadd9                       G
I got my heart in the right place
Cadd9             D                 G
But that place is millions of miles away
Em7                                 Am
And I suppose I never will know the perfect words to say
              C                   D                G
But I'll keep searching till they find me one fine day


                G
I'd rather make sandcastles
                  D          Em7
Instead of these wide-world decisions
  Cadd9                    D
I knew, I knew it all was catching up to me, yeah
                   G
And I don't have a plan at all
               D          Em7
But I got this six-string religion
    Cadd9                       Am
And I do, I do believe a song can heal me
D                G         Cadd9
 It's enough for me, yeah
D               G         Cadd9
 It's enough for me, yeah  Oooh
D                G        
 It's enough for me, yeah
