Noticed that the other tabs for this song are a little.... incomplete. 
The difficult thing about the song is she has done many different versions with 
many different variations on the lyrics, 
but the chords stay the same.

I am using the latest version off "I speak because I can"

Capo on 2nd

Intro -
Am C G x2

    Am         C
Well I own this feel 
    Am        C
And I rode the sky 
    Am        C         E           F
And I have no reason to reason with you 

       Am                         C
I'd be sad that I never held your hand as you lowered, 
      G                                 Am
but I understand that I'd never let it go 
                                  C
I'd be sad that I never held your hand as you were lowered,
      G                                 Am
But I understand the world does what it does 

    F             C            G
You never did learn to let the little things go, 
        F            C            G
And you never did learn to let me be. 
        F            C          G
And you never did learn to let little people grow, 
    F            C         G
You never did learn how to see. 

      Am                           C
But I whisper that I love this man now and for forever, 
        G                             Am
To your soul as it floats out of the window. 
       F              C           G
To the world that you turned your back on, 
       F              C               G
To the world that never really let you be. 

     Am             C
I am lower now, and lower still, 
            F               C               G
And you did always say that one day I would suffer, 
        F               C                G
You did always say that people get their pay, 
        F               C             G
You did always say that I was going places, 
             F                C         G
And that you wouldn't have it any other way. 

      Am                         C
But I couldn't turn my back on a world, 
                         G
For what I like wouldn't let me, 
      Am                         C
But i couldn't turn my back on a world,
                   G 
For what I like anyday 

Instrumental break (not here in every version) - Carry on same chords

      Am                         C
And I couldn't turn my back on a world,
                         G 
for what I like wouldn't let me
      Am                         C 
And I couldn't turn my back on a world, 
                 G
for what I like I needed 
      Am                  
And I shouldn't turn my back,
     C                        G       C     G
on a sweet smelling Blackberry Stone.
