About this tab version
You can use a capo anywhere that works for you, I know that Grant-Lee Phillips uses it on the third. Also you can play around with different d cords as he does in the song. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Verse 1]
A            E    D    A
Feathers and furs nightbirds
D         A         E
Only come out after dark
A            E       D    A
Hear 'em all singin' nightbirds
D           A        E
Crying like no meadowlark
 
[Verse 2]
A          E      D         A
Velvet and pearls mausoleum girls
D        A        E
Leathery jacketed boys
A        E           D          A
Out on a limb at the end of the bar
D                A         E
Shunned from the island of joy
 
[Chorus]
G
Waiting for the silver moon to come
           A
And set ya free
G                                    A
Waiting for the silver door to swing wide
A
Like a jailbird's dream, dream
 
[Verse 3]
A          E      D     A
Powder and gloves night doves
D         A         E
Only come out after hours
A          E              D            A
Thick with perfume by the light of the tomb
D          A       E
Fresh as a funeral flower
 
[Chorus]
G                                              A
Waiting for the silver moon to come and set ya free
G                                    A
Waiting for the silver door to swing wide
A
Like a jailbird's dream
 
[Outro]
A            E    D    A
Feathers and furs nightbirds
D         A         E
Only come out after dark
A            E       D    A
Hear 'em all singin' nightbirds
D           A        E
Crying like no meadowlark
