[Verse]

D       
When I walk beside her 
Cadd9
I am the better man
G
When I look to leave her 
        D
I always stagger back again

D
Once I built an Ivory tower 
Cadd9
so I could worship from above
G
When I climb down to be set free 
        D
she took me in again


[Chorus]

D       
there's a big
                Am7
A big hard sun
                G
beaten on the big people
                D
in the big hard world


[Verse]

D
When she comes to greet me
Cadd9
She is mercy at my feet
G
When I see her pin her charm
        D
She just throws it back at me

D
Once I dug an early grave 
Cadd9
To find a better land
G
She just smile and laughed at me 
        D
And took her bruise back again


[Chorus]

D       
there's a big
                Am7
A big hard sun
                G
beaten on the big people
                D
in the big hard world

D       
there's a big
                Am7
A big hard sun
                G
beaten on the big people
                D
in the big hard world


[Verse]

D
Once I stood to lose her
Cadd9
when I saw what I had done
G
bound down and flew away the hours
        D
of her garden and her sun

D
so I tried to warn her
Cadd9
I turned to see her weep
G
40 days and 40 nights
        D
and it's still coming down on me


[Chorus]

D       
there's a big
                Am7
A big hard sun
                G
beaten on the big people
                D
in the big hard world

(Repeat and Fade)

Sounds fantastic. Just one correction though. I think the A chord in the chorus should be fingered without that F#.
Sounds better like this

A7sus4

Sorry, just played it again and it sounds even better if it's like this....

Still considered a A7sus4 chord I guess,
LOL.

Dude, if you listen to the song, the Am7 sounds spot on. The others you mention sound awkward.
