This is what it sounds like on the piano; I guess you could play
it on anything although I wouldn't want to attempt it myself! 
Transpose it down 1 step though and it's not too bad.

E, B, C#M, G#M, E
E, B, C#M, G#M, E

Verse 1:
E     B        C#M      G#M       E
Older brother, restless soul, lie down
E         B               C#M  G#M        E
Lie for a while with your ear against the earth
           E         B      C#M      G#M
And you'll hear your sister sleep talking
          E       B            C#M   G#M      E
Say "your hair is long but not long enough to reach
home to me
but your beard
someday might be."

           G#M          E                 B
And she'll wake up in a cold sweat on the floor
          G#M             E                   B
Next to a family portrait drawn when you were four
    G#M             E                   B                      E
And beside a jar of two cent coins that are no good no more
She'll lay it aside

   B, C#M, G#M, E
E, B, C#M, G#M, E

Verse 2:
E     B       C#M   G#M          E
Older father, weary soul, you'll drive
E           B        C#M         G#M     E
Back to the home you made on the mountainside
          B     C#M      G#M
With that ugly, terrible thing
      E      B   C#M
Those papers for divorce
      G#M    E
And a lonely ring
A lonely ring
Sit on your porch
And pluck your strings

    G#M             E            B
And you'll find somebody you can blame
And you'll follow the creek 
          E            B         E
That runs out into the sea
And you'll find the peace of the Lord.

   B, C#M, G#M, E
E, B, C#M, G#M, E

Verse 3:
E    B       C#M    G#M          E
Grandfather, gentle soul, you'll fly
E         B         C#M    G#M      E
Over your life once more before you die
          B       C#M    G#M
Since our grandma passed away
       E      B      C#M  G#M   E
You've waited for forever and a day
Just to die
And someday soon
You will die

           G#M  E              B
It was the only woman you ever loved
         G#M                  E                  B
That got burnt by the sun too often when she was young
        G#M                  E            B            B
And the cancer spread and it ran into her body and her blood
            G#M             E           B
And there's nothing you can do about it now

E, B, C#M, G#M, E, E (x8)

E, B
E, B
G#M, E, B
