3rd fret
This is a beautiful song. The chords are simple and the picking/strumming rhythm is easy 
to pick up.


Capo: 3rd fret

C: X3201X
D: X0321X
G: 32000X


Intro: C D G C


C                        D
There's rumbling in the head again
G                       C
Inside the head there lived a brain
C                        D
Inside the brain there lived a dream
      G                  C
That shot round like a laser beam
C                    D
Along nerve endings and synapses
G                   C
Past the room for memory lapses
C               D
Bought about by alcohol
      G              C
That causes all the cell collapses


C D G C


C                         D
Now, that dream's not the only one
      G                C
I had plenty more when I was young
C                D
But I grew up in a big hurry
     G               C
And then one day I start to worry that
          D               G                  C
I'm gonna be a goner before I read all the books I wanna
C                           D
If I plant a tree now it'll be fully grown
      G              C
Long after I'm just dust and bone and
C       D              C         G
Now I can't sleep, it's already 3 AM
       C            D               G                  C
And Im lying here dividing sheep by the square root of ten


C D G C


C                  D
So I gave away my clothes to charity
    G            C
I turned off my TV for clarity
C                    D
And somedays I still envy those
    G              C
Walking around wearing my clothes


              G                 D         C
So I'll just plant a tree I'll never see grow
      G                        D           C
Put a seed in the ground where no one'll know
       G                     D       C
Gonna make my plan when the morning breaks
       G                   D          C
But I just don't know how long it'll take


C D G C


C                           D
I keep hearing voices and ringing phones
          G                     C
But Im staring down a highway all alone
C                            D
With just the company of my stomach rumble
       G           C
And I feel OK, it makes me humble
C                   D
Without a load that I must carry
      G                   C
Or a bump in the road to make to tarry
C                              D                      G       
        C
Just a pile of ashes from the miles I've burned and everything Ive learned

C
What have I learned?

               C                 D
Don't walk in front of cars or behind horses
      G                       C
Cats don't drink milk out of flying saucers
C
Green means go
D
Yellow: go faster
G                 C
Red means stop or financial disaster
C                    D                         G          C
And don't ever underestimate the fitness of a determined Jehovahs witness
C                    D                     G               C
And don't ever ever take for granted what grew from every kiss you planted
C                           D
If a heart can break then a heart can feel
       G                  C
It's to know that you're alive and real
C                           D
Like the rattlin, bouncin little white ball
       G          C
Not a number on a roulette wheel
C            D              C                G
And hair it turns grey and skin it turns to leather
         C               D                 G          C
But the best thing about growing old is we all do it together


              G                 D         C
So I'll just plant a tree I'll never see grow
      G                        D           C
Put a seed in the ground where no one'll know
       G                     D       C
Gonna make my plan when the morning breaks
       G                   D          C
But I just don't know how long it'll take


C D G C


C                                       D
They say that a love that's shared is a love that's carried
        G                        C
All the way to the church where you'll be married
C                                 D                G          
          C
And it's a long old way down the aisle to alter and you don't have the time to falter
C                 D
Love will always come and go I hope
      G                 C
But sometimes love goes up in smoke
C                               D
And you're left there with the greedy ghost
     G             C
And just when you need them most
C                          D
Some of your friends have disappeared
     G               C
And others started acting weird
            C                        D
And you’re left on your bed with an awful feeling
              G                        C
Till you've learned by heart all the cracks in the ceiling
C                      D                      G               
  C
And you think Oh god I just related to that awful love song I always hated
C                    D                     G                C
And the past it all becomes distorted like it was broke before you bought it
C                    D
Remember, you're the one who paid
           G              C
Pulled the pin out of the hand grenade
C                  D
It's up to you to leave your room
     G              C
But don't forget to bring your spade


           G                   D         C
So you can plant a tree you'll never see grow
      G                        D         C
Put a seed in the ground where no one'll know
      G             D          C
Gonna make my plan forever to roam
      G                   D      C
Gonna feed my nan in the nursing home
      G                        D       C
Gonna make that plan when the morning breaks
      G                   D           C
But I just don't know how long It'll take
