These chords are basically the cheater version of this song.  Capo it to the key 
you prefer to sing in (or transpose it) as it is NOT in the same key that IGirls 
do it in.  That being said, played correctly, this version can be used to great 
success in front of most any crowd of bar patrons.  


INTRO:  C  G  F  G7  -  C  G  F  G7


C       G            F       G7     C         G               F   G7
  Galileo's head was on the block, crime was looking up the truth   
C              G                F             G         
  And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
          Am        Em      F   G7
I try to trace them to my youth

C               G               F        G            C        G
  And then you had to bring up reincarnation over a couple of beers
           F    G7
the other night
     C           G           F     G       Am          Em         F   G
Now I'm serving time for mistakes made by another in another lifetime


CHORUS:

          C            G             F          G
     How long till my soul gets it right?   Can any Human
      C           G                  F      G
     Being ever reach that kind of light?  I call on the
      Am      Em        D                 F          G         C
     Resting soul  of  Galileo, king of night vision, king of insight

 F  G
 
C                G               F    G7  C             G              F   G7
  Then I think about my fear of motion      of which I never could explain
C              G             F            G              Am         Em
  Some other fool across the ocean years ago must have crashed his little 
     F   G
airplane

To CHORUS
Than BRIDGE:

Am                 F            
I'm not making a joke, you know me
       Am               F
I take everything  so  seriously
      Am                          F            
If we wait for the time till all souls get it right
          G                   F         G          F
Than at least I know there'll be no nuclear annihilation
       C       G                 F    G
in my lifetime - I'm still not right


SOLO:  
C  G  F  G7  Am  Em  D - D  F  G  C


C          G                F    G7  C               G      F   G7
I offer thanks to those before me.  That's all I've got to say
        C          G            F             G          Am    Em      F   G
Cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime.  Now I have to pay

            C                  G                F    G7  
But then again it feels like some sort of inspiration
             C        G        F   G7
To let the next life off the hook
               C          G          F             G 
She'll say, "look what I had to overcome from my last life
Am              Em      F   G
  I think I'll write a book"


FINAL CHORUS:

          C            G             F          G
     How long till my soul gets it right?   Can any Human
      C           G                  F      G
     Being ever reach the highest light?  Except for the
      Am      Em     D                 F          G         C     G F G
     Resting soul - Galileo, king of night vision, king of insight
           C           G             F   G
     How long till my soul gets it right
           C           G                 F   G
     How long till I meet that highest light...
           C   G  F  G  C
     How lo-o-ong?

Yup. Capo on five puts it where Indigo Girls are singing.

A couple of simple corrections (adding spelled-out second chorus, correcting chord sequence for solo part, and correcting second Am in bridge to Amsus4):
