Chords by Theresa Davey, it should be about 98% right, let me know of any 
corrections i need to make.

No CAPO needed, although depending on your vocal range, you may find it easier to use one.

A                     Em
how long before I get in
Em                           D
before it starts, before I begin
A                     Em
how long before you decide
Em                           D
before I know what it feels like
A                    Em
where to, where do I go
Em                                 D
if you never tried then you'll never know
A                        Em
how long do I have to climb
Em                                 D
up on this side of this mountain of mine

A                        Em
look up, I look up at night
Em                                     D
planets are moving at the speed of light
A                      Em
climb up, up in the trees
Em                                           D
every chance that you get, is a chance you seize
A                 Em
how long am I gonna stand
Em                             D
with my head stuck under the sand
A                      Em
I'll start before I can stop
Em                             D
before I see things the right way up

G              A               Bm
all that noise, all that sound
G           A                Bm
all those places that i got found
G                           Bm
and birds go flying at the speed of sound
F#m                  G
to show you how it all began
G                           Bm
birds come flying from the underground
F#m                         G
if you could see it then you'd understand

A                         Em
ideas that you'll never find
Em                               D
all the inventors could never design
A                           Em
the buildings that you put up
Em                            D
Japan and China were all lit up
A                          Em
the sign that I couldn't read
Em                           D
or the light that I couldn't see
A                            Em
somethings you have to believe
Em                                D
but others are puzzles, puzzling me


G              A               B
all that noise, all that sound
G           A                Bm
all those places that i got found
G                           Bm
and birds go flying at the speed of sound
F#m                  G
to show you how it all began
G                           Bm
birds come flying from the underground
F#m                         G
if you could see it then you'd understand
D


G            A                   Bm                    E
all those signs I knew what they meant something you can't invent
G        A                 Bm          E
some get made and some get sent, ooo-oooh


G              A               Bm
all that noise, all that sound
G           A                Bm
all those places that i got found
G                           Bm
and birds go flying at the speed of sound
F#m                  G
to show you how it all began
G                           Bm
birds come flying from the underground

if you could see it then you'd understand
F#m                         G
oh if you could see it then you'd understand

quite accurate, but the Em in the verse should always be a G (for both Em's) Also the F#m in the verse should be a D the first time meaning G, Bm, D, G, G, Bm, F#m, G :)

I agree that the first F#m in the chorus should be a D, but I believe that the Em is correct. A G just sounds too bright. I believe the song to be in the key of D (not A) as it should resolve on D...one last chord which should be added. I think an Em7 could work there perhaps better...I play a standard Em but add a D on the 2nd string (022030).

While the E in the bridge would then not technically be in the key of D, the feel of that chord and that section is unlike the rest of the song.

As far as the strumming, I play DDUUDU.

Overall, nice job.
