    C  Cadd9  G   Am7 Am  F   E   E7  G7

My version I play, hope ya’ll like it! Fingerpicking, hybrid picking, strum it, or a mixture through the verse
and chorus.

I put Cadd9/C to represent a hammer on from Cadd9 to C. x1003x to x1023x, hammer on the 2. 
I’ve done the same thing with E7/E, you’re going from E7 to E via hammer on.  

Cadd9/C   G   Am7   G4 (x4)

C                      G
Travellin’ through the graveyard
       Am               G4
With a suitcase full of sparks
       F                   G              C   G4
Honey, I'm just trying to find my way to you
C            G
Lit up every campfire
Am               G4
Found out in the dark
      F                G          C
Oh, I cut down all the cottonwoods

Cadd9/C   G    Am7   G4 (x2)

C                 G
Picked up all the arrowheads
    Am                    G4
Off buffalo trails of the Indians
    F        G               C       G4
The Oklahoma sky was cutting through
C                         G
Along the tracks with the runaway 
    Am                  G4
He just talks and talks and talks
       F                  G              C
Honey, I'm just trying to find my way to you

Cadd9/C      E7      Am         F
And I quit counting stars at night
    Cadd9            F        E7/E   E7
In the cold, by the satellite field
    Am     G       C             F
And I quit panning gold, digging holes
     C                  G              C 
Yeah, I'm just trying to find my way to you

Cadd9/C   G    Am7   G4 (x4)

C             G
Swam across the Poncha
      Am           G4
Took a train to Cataloo
  C            G
I opened up my guitar case
   Am                 G4
And all the songs were blue
  C               G
I haunted all the alleys
       Am                 G4
Lord I drifted down the valleys
       F                  G              C
Honey, I'm just trying to find my way to you

Cadd9/C      E7      Am     F      
And I quit casting hooks, Off
    Cadd9              F        E7/E   E7
the California coast we held so dear
    Am     G        C                   F
And I quit flashing smiles, and running wild
      C                  G              C
Yeah, I'm just trying to find my way to you

Cadd9/C   G    Am7   G4 (x4)

         C             G
Threw my bottle to the ocean
   Am             G4
She never wrote me back
       F               G                C    G4
All the countless days along the sea of blue
            C               G
Learned the language of the mocking bird
 Am              G4
She took and twisted all my words
       F                  G              C
Yeah, I'm just trying to find my way to you

         E7               F
And I'll meet you in the graveyard
        F                   G      G7
With the winter trees and stars
           F            G                C
And we can open up this suitcase full of sparks

[Outro & Humming]
Cadd9/C   G    Am7   G4 (Fade Out)

I'm not entirely sure how to read chords, and I'm not very good with strumming, so is there any possible way you could get this song as a tab so that I know how to read it and can finger pick it?

Well Adrian, personally I prefer a random picking style (if it sounds good) for this song like Bob Dylan does a lot or what you hear in a lot of folk songs.

I don't know how new you are to guitar, but the chord structures are in tabbed form. Just my two cents, but you really need to learn a few basic chords. Learning just tabs or just chords limits yourself.

On fingerpicking (I'm no teacher but this may help) you can start learning with this tip I can give you on the fly: Top three strings use your thumb. Rest your other three fingers on the bottom three strings. You may or may not use your pinky as a 'stabilizer' of sorts and rest it on the pick guard. So to summarize: Thumb for top EAD and have your pointer finger on G, middle on B, and ring finger on e. PM me if you have any other questions, I'll help as best I can.
