I played along with the song and found these chords to be a nice fit. Thanks to

-Verse 1-
Am                        C/G                 G
     When the wind picked up the fire spread
                      Dsus4/F#          Am
And the grapevines seemed left for dead
                   C/G                           G
And the Northern sky looked like the end of days
The end of days

Am                    C/G                G
     The wake-up call to a rented room
                   Dsus4/F#               Am
Sounded like an alarm of impending doom
                C/G                     G (hold twice as long)
To warn us it's only a matter of time

              Am        C/G      G        Dsus4/F#
Before we all burn
              Am        C/G      G        Em
Before we all burn
              Am        C        G        Dsus4/F#
Before we all burn
              Am        C/G      G (hold G)
Before we all burn

-Verse 2-
Am                   C/G                       G
      We bought some wine and some paper cups
              Dsus4/F#                            Am
Near your daughters school when we picked her up
               C/G             G
And drove to a cemetery on a hill
On a hill

Am                         C/G                   G
      And we watched the plumes paint the sky gray
                 Dsus4/F#                             Am
But she laughed and danced through the field of graves
             C/G                  G
And there I knew it would be alright
That everything

           Am         C/G       G         Dsus4/F#
Would be alright
           Am         C/G       G         Em
Would be alright
           Am         C/G       G         Dsus4/F#
Would be alright
           Am         C/G       G (hold G)
Would be alright

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
     But I couldn't think
   C                   G           Am
Of anywhere I would of rather been
            C          Dsus4/F#
To watch it all burn away

         Am        C/G        G         Dsus4/F#
To burn away
Am        C/G        G         Em
Am        C/G        G         D
Am        C/G        G (hold G)

Am        C/G        G         Dsus4/F#
Am        C/G        G         Em
Am        C/G        G         Dsus4/F#
Am        C/G        G (hold G)

Am                      C/G                  G
      And the firemen worked in double shifts
            Dsus4/F#                Am
With prayers for rain on their lips
                     C/G               G (fade)
And they knew it was only a matter of time

B7 on the bridge sounds better than B, or it's just me?
