F#/ D is played like so (it's technically a D):

Otherwise, it's pretty self explanatory... Have fun, remember Capo 2nd. And, one thing
Sam Beam does a lot that isn't absolutely necessary but sounds nice: On the C and G
hit the harmony of the 3rd with a hammer on from the 2nd on the "3" beat (i.e. play a C, 
the third string open and hammer on the second fret on the 3 count- same with G but
a string). I realize that I'm not good at explaining this in type but if you know what
saying, it's actually very common and very easy.

               C                             F#/D
     G            C
There are times that walk from you Like some passing afternoon
G                            F#D                    C              D
Summer warmed the open window Of her honeymoon
                C                             F#/D
      G           C
And she chose a yard to burn But the ground remembers her
A                            F#/D
             D
Wooden spoons, her children stir her Bougainvillea blooms
               C                             F#/D
     G            C
There are things that drift away Like our endless numbered days
  G                         F#/D
             D
Autumn blew the quilt right off the Perfect bed she made
               C                             F#/D
     G            C
And she's chosen to believe In the hymns her mother sings
G                            F#/D
             D
Sunday pulls it's children from the Piles of fallen leaves
               C                             F#/D
     G            C
There are sailing ships that pass All our bodies in the grass
G                            F#/D
             D
Springtime calls her children 'til she Let's 'em go at last
               C                             F#/D
     G            C
And she's chosen where to be Though she's lost her wedding ring
G                            F#/D
             D
Somewhere near her misplaced jar of Bougainvillea seeds
               C                             F#/D
     G            C
There are things we can't recall Blind as night that finds us all
G                           F#/D
             D
Winter tucks her children in her Fragile china dolls
               C                             F#/D
     G            C
But my hands remember hers Rolling around the shady ferns
G                            F#/D
             D
Naked arms are secrets still like Songs I'd never learned
               C                             F#/D
     G            C
There are names across the sea Only now I do believe
G                           F#/D
             D
Sometimes with the window closed She'll sit and think of me
               C                             F#/D
     G            C
But she'll mend his tattered clothes And they'll kiss as if they know
G                            F#/D
             D
A baby sleeps in all our bones So scared to be alone

It isn't correct because the chord progression doesn't follow the meter of the song. Unfortunately, I'm just a beginner so I have no idea what the chords should actually be.
