this is based off a video on youtube of them playing this song
live. Everything should be right, I've been fixing it for 3 days.
hopefully this is easy to follow, that was my goal.

[Verse]
A#           Dm
Shake me down,
A#           Dm
Not a lot of people left around,
A#           Dm
Who knows now,
A#           Dm
Softly laying on the ground, ooooh
A#           Dm
Not a lot people left around, ooooh. ooooh

   This next part is played like this:
   A#         Dm         Gm         Cm
e|------6---|-----5----|-----3----|-----3----|
B|----6---6-|---6---6--|---3---3--|---4---4--| (It's the top 3 strings 
G|-/7-------|-7--------|-3--------|-5--------|  of the Barre chords, 
D|----------|----------|----------|----------|   But you don't need to
A|----------|----------|----------|----------|   use the barre chords just 
E|----------|----------|----------|----------|    yet)

A#      Dm           Gm
  In my life, I have seen,
         Cm            A#
  People walk into the sea,
          Dm        Gm
  Just to find memories,
             Cm         A#
  Plagued by constant misery,
        Dm        Gm
  Their eyes cast down,
  Cm             A#
  Fixed upon the ground,
        Dm        Gm    Cm
  Their eyes cast down


[Chorus]
F F  F  F  F  F  F  F  F  F  F  (just hit the F barre chord 
I'll keep my eyes fixed on the       a bunch of times)
A# Dm  (intro)
sun


[Verse]
A#          Dm
Shake me down,
A#          Dm
Cut my hair on a silver cloud,  (intro/first verse again)
A#          Dm
Broken sound,
A#          Dm
Softly laying on the 
A#          Dm
ground, ooooh
A#          Dm
Not a lot people left 
A#          Dm
around, ooooh, ooooh


This time play the Barre chords and strum 4x each

A#      Dm        Gm                 (use A# bare chord at 6th fret
In my past, bittersweet,                    not at the 1st)
           Cm               A#
There's no love between the sheets,
          Dm            Gm
Taste the blood, broken dreams,
Cm           A#
Lonely times indeed,
        Dm        Gm
With eyes cast down,
  Cm             A#
Fixed upon the ground,
Dm    Gm       Cm
Eyes cast down


[Chorus]
F   F   F   F   F   F   F   F 
I'll keep my eyes fixed on the

[Bridge]
F (x4)          G (x4)
Walk around the corner, (barre chords, the () is how many times
A# (x8)                                      to strum)
Never saw it coming still,
F               G
I try to make a move,
A#
It almost stopped me from belief,
F               G
I don't wanna know the future,
A#
But I'm like rolling thunder,


D#               Bb  
Even on a cloudy day,
F                G
Even on a cloudy day,
D#               Bb
Even on a cloudy day,   (Barre Chords)
F                G        remember to use the corresponding barre chords 
Even on a cloudy day,                     at the 6th fret
D#               Bb
Even on a cloudy day,
F                G
Even on a cloudy day,
D#               Bb
Even on a cloudy day,
