CHORD REFERENCE:

    F   Bb6  F7M  
e|--0----2----4----|
B|--3----3----5----|

For the intro, mess with the F chord with a single finger by making
these shapes:

e|-0---0---0---0---|
B|-3---2---0---2---|
G|-0---0---0---3---|
D|-0---0---0---0---|
A|-0---0---0---0---|

He usually does this between the verses, as well.

VERSE

Bb6
In that dream I'm as old as the mountains


Still as starlight reflected in fountains

F
Then

Bb6
Children grown on the edge of the ocean


Bred like jewelry kept with devotion

F                                             Bb6
In that dream moving slow through the morning time

(Hammer on the Bb6 chord like this)
e|-2----2-2----2--|
B|-3----3-3----3--|
G|-1----0-0h1--0--|
D|-0----0-0----0--|
A|-2----0-0h2--0--|
E|-0----0-0----0--|

-------------

Bb6
You would come to me then without answers

                                         F
Lick my wounds and remove my demands for now

Bb6
Eucalyptus and orange trees are blooming


In that dream there's no darkness a-loomin'
F                                            Bb6 (play with it)
In that dream moving slow through the morning time

Bb6                   F7M
In that dream I could hardly contain it!

Bb6                F7M
All my life I will wait to attain it

Bb6
Iiiiiiiiitttt!

    Bb6
And I know someday the smoke will all burn off

                                              F
All these voices I'll someday have turned off then

    Bb6
And I will see you someday when I've woken


I'll be so happy just to have spoken

F
I'll have so much to tell you about it

Bb6 (hammer-ons)
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Bb6                   F7M
In that dream I could hardly contain it!

Bb6                F7M
All my life I will wait to attain it

Bb6
Iiiiiiiiitttt!

       F (play with the chord)
Oooooooh!

Wide-eyed walker
Don't betray me
I will wake one day
Don't delay me
Wide-eyed leaver
Always going

The chord labeled Fm7 here actually spells out Fmaj9. Just in case anyone wants to play this in any other tuning.

This is amazing, I would never have the ear to figure this out. It's an odd tuning, but it's made perfect in this song. Thanks so much!
