Chords  654321
--------------
Em      022000
Dm      000231 or (I usually play it 000230)
F       133211
C/G     332010
Gsus4   320013
Am      002210

I used this performance for guidance - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xH8KG09xYsQ

I grabbed these lyrics from www.joshritter.com and in the video the second chorus 
he sings "Tell her I was barely there" and I've left the original "Tell her I was 
on the move" but find myself using the video lyrics often.

On the extra Gsus4 he'll sometimes remove his first finger for a measure and the 
outro might not be the chords I have listed. 

Good luck and enjoy.

Em               Dm
        Southern Pacific
Em                     Dm
        Red, white and blue
F                    C/G     Gsus4      
        Where are we running to?
        
Gsus4   
        
Em               Dm
        Over the wide plains
Em               Dm
        Over the wide plains
F                    C/G     Gsus4      
        Take me to someplace new

Gsus4   
        
F                      C/G
        Remember me to Roxy Anne
                 Gsus4
        You know she's still lovely
F                             C/G
        Tell her I was on the move
                 Gsus4
        The last time you saw me
F                             C/G       E7             Am
        That you only saw the back               of my head

Am
        
Em                        Dm
        Climb through the timbers
Em                          Dm
        And I'll breath the dust Of
F                  C/G       Gsus4
        cosmos and wild rose bud
Em                      Dm
        And thunder the unknowns
Em                         Dm
        In the phosphorous white glow
F                      C/G          Gsus4
        Of saber-tooth bones in the dusk

Gsus4
        
F                      C/G
        Remember me to Roxy Anne
                 Gsus4
        You know she's still lovely
F                             C/G
        Tell her I was on the move
                 Gsus4
        The last time you saw me                                
F                             C/G       E7             Am
        That you only saw the back               of my head

Am

Em               Dm
        Southern Pacific
Em                 Dm
        Take me to meet
F                   C/G
        Whatever is hunting
            Gsus4
        For me...

*Note the last C/G -> Gsus4 on the outro might not be what he plays in the video 
and it could be a C (032013) -> G thing (320013).

On the line "That you only saw the back of my head" the Em should be an E7.
