I believe you have to tune the guitar in Eb.. I'm not too sure, try to play along with 
the song!

C, D, G, C

      C                       D        G   C
Oh, light a candle's fire, it carries our good name
                           C               D
What would you ask a campfire?
      G                          C
It scares me just the same
            C                            D
And you, you've had it all along
      G                         C
An endless need for games
                     C                    D        G          
Just don't forget, a candle's fire is only just a flame

C, D, G, C

(same as the first verse)
I hit certain from afar, failed to pull my weight
But you were light, we traveled through the fall
To arrive at our front gate
Tonight, we rest beside the fire
A smile upon your face
Just don't forget, a candle's fire is only just a flame

then the verse ends on C, it keeps it going for a while, then G.. and then the kick-ass 
epic brasses part should be something like this:

Am              D                   G                 C
  If I had known, that to carry on that way
Am                    D                 G                   C
  It wouldn't show in the creases on your face
Am                     D                     G               C
  If you should go, would you carry on my name?
Am                 D                   G                      
  Just let it blow, and the blah blah blah blah blaaah(what does he say??)

then Am, D, G, C till the end (note: if the second part doesn't sound right to your ear, 
play C chords instead of Am chords)

I hope you'll find this useful!

I believe both this song and Santa Fe are tuned down just shy of half a step, something like 40 cents.

the last line (written as blah blah blah...) is:
just let it blow like the fog on Bishop's lane

when i first heard this song, i messed around with my guitar and found that Am Dm G Em works really well with the melody
