This is someone else's tab just in an easier fingering.
The song is in Eb so any variation will work, but C shapes are the easiest in my opinion.

[Verse 1]

Am                         C                 G
     When the wind picked up the fire spread
                      D                 Am
And the grapevines seemed left for dead
                   C                             G
And the Northern sky looked like the end of days
                Em
The end of days


Am                    C                 G
     The wake-up call to a rented room
                  D                      Am
Sounded like an alarm of impending doom
                C                      G (hold twice as long)
To warn us it's only a matter of time


[Chorus]

              Am        C        G        D
Before we all burn
              Am        C        G        Em
Before we all burn
              Am        C        G        D
Before we all burn
              Am        C        G (hold G)
Before we all burn


[Verse 2]

Am                   C                        G
      We bought some wine and some paper cups
                    D                            Am
Near your daughters school when we picked her up
               C               G
And drove to a cemetery on a hill
       Em
On a hill

Am                         C                     G
      And we watched the plumes paint the sky gray
                    D                               Am
But she laughed and danced through the field of graves
             C                    G
And there I knew it would be alright
          D
That everything


[Chorus]

           Am         C         G         D
Would be alright
           Am         C         G         Em
Would be alright
           Am         C         G         D
Would be alright
           Am         C         G (hold G)
Would be alright


[Bridge]

B                               C
     And the news reports on the radio
            G             Am
Said it was getting worse
             C                  Em
As the ocean air fanned the flames
B
     But I couldn't think
   C                   G           Am
Of anywhere I would of rather been
            C          D
To watch it all burn away


[Chorus]

         Am        C         G         D
To burn away
Am        C          G         Em
Am        C          G         D
Am        C          G (hold G)

Am        C          G         D
Am        C          G         Em
Am        C          G         D
Am        C          G (hold G)


[Outro]

Am                      C                   G
      And the firemen worked in double shifts
                 D                Am
With prayers for rain on their lips
                     C                 G (fade)
And they knew it was only a matter of time

this is really good for the most part, but in the 2nd verse/chorus you institute a key change that shouldn't be there...it should keep along the same progressions until the bridge.

Also there's a C that should be a D the second time through the verse.
