Although I've a funny feeling she plays it in a different tuning, I reckon this 
sounds about right. It may be completely wrong, in which case I'm sorry.

D Bm G D

            D
You were so smart then,
                   Bm
In your jacket and coat,
               A
My softest red scarf was,
             D
Warming your throat.
              D
Winter was on us,
                 Bm
At the end of my nose,
                 G       (A?)                      D
And I never love England more than when covered in snow.


       Bm                       A
Well a friend of mine says it's good to hear,
    G                       D
You believe in love even if set in fear,
                   Bm                A
Well I'll hold you there brother and set you straight,
     G              D                            A
I only believe true love is frail and willing to break.


            D
I will come back here,
                       Bm
Bring me back when I'm old,
          A
I want to lay here,
               D
Forever in the cold,
           D
I might be cold but,
                  Bm
I'm just skin and bone,
                 G       (A?)                      D
And I never love England more than when covered in snow.


D                             Bm
I wrote my name in your book, only God knows why,
      A
And I bet you that he cracked a smile,
        G                                D
And I'm clearing all the stuff out of my room,
D
Trying desperately to figure out,
A
What it is that makes me blue,
      G                        D
And I wrote an epic letter to you,

And it's 22 pages front and back,
         A
And it's too good to be used,
      G                                  D
And I tried to be a girl who likes to be used,
        D
I'm too good for that,
          G
There's a mind under this hat and I,
Bm                                        D
Called them all and told them i've got to move.


D                Bm
I'm out of love, it's too hard,
Bm              Bm
I'm all alone, it's too hard,
D         Bm       D        Bm
Feel like running, feel like running,
A
Running off.


D           Bm        D       Bm       A
And we will keep you, we will keep you little one
G               A
Safe from harm, like an extra arm
                D
You are part of us.


            D
You were so smart then,
                   Bm
In your jacket and coat,
               A
My softest red scarf was,
             D
Warming your throat.
              D
Winter will us,
                    Bm
Left the end of my nose,
                 G       (A?)                      D
And I never love England more than when covered in snow.

Love it. You definitely need those A's that are in brackets though. :)
