F#                         B
   Close your eyes and you draw one more day to a close
    A
You choose to be alone
    B                            F#
You float through your life as a ghost
    F#
And everything heals given time
    B
And everything dies given time
        A                   B                          F#
And the scars run together, mixing the nerves with the blood
        B                                               F#
And the soldiers light houses on fire and they burn down
     B                                            F#
And all your belongings turn to dirt in the ground
          A
When your heart's deep and dark as a well
    B                            C#            F#
And everything that's golden and green goes to hell

          F#
And I was born to wind in the cradle
      B
And I ride on the hot southern breeze
      A                          B
and I twist in the green and the gold
                         A           B          F#
and you see and there is blood on my elbows and knees
    F#
And people want to grow old in the cradle
             B
When there's snakes all around in the reeds
        A                    B
And you ask me to fear of no evil
          A          B       F#
When your fire's all over my feet
        B                                               F#
And the soldiers light houses on fire and they burn down
    B                                             F#
And all your belongings turn to dirt in the ground
          A
When your heart's deep and dark as a well
    B                            C#
And everything that's golden and green goes to hell

       F#
I said bring out your Vivian girls
B
Bring out your cloud-covered girls
    A                      B
and bring me a cup of your tears
    A           B            F#
and give me the rest of your years
        F#
Because everything dies, given time
      B
And I know that this world could be mine
     A                         B
So I closed both my eyes and I count my heartbeats
      A            B            F#
and I know that my wings are on fire
        B                                               F#
And the soldiers light houses on fire and they burn down
    B                                             F#
And all your belongings turn to dirt in the ground
          A
When your heart's deep and dark as a well
    B                            C#
And everything that's golden and green goes to hell

*When going to the F# throughout the song ad lib hammer-ons from the E to F# bass note 
your power chords --- just listen to the song

The higher pitched instrument throughout the song is a mandolin ... just hang around F# 
your upper register to duplicate ... on the break in between vocal lines it's generally 
to F# like the bass and rhythm guitar
