Capo
novice
1st fret
I've only found this song on YouTube, she hasn't released it on an album yet.
Still, it's a great song, and pretty simple to play. She plays it on banjo, 
but the chords translate for guitar.

Capo 1

[Intro]
G - C x2

[Verse 1]
G
Too young, too thoughtless," I said to myself
        C 
with idealistic visions all perched on the shelf
                D                              C
'cause I'm still hoping, waiting for you to come home.

    G
May your snow capped mountains carry you far.
        C
May they stand as protectors wherever you are.
        D                               C             
May you stay safe and happy all of your days.

[Chorus]
  G
Oh James
  C
Oh James

[Verse 2]
   G
Maybe you're in love or hung up on another
     C
And maybe you found a far prettier lover
     D                                         C
And maybe you'll paint her a picture like you did for me

     G
You color your world with that Neverland smile
        C
but it goes dark in pieces every once in a while
          D                                            C
and on my birthday I told you, "Dont worry, there'll be other days."

[Chorus]
  G
Oh James
  C
Oh James
x2

[Bridge]
G
Oooooooooo-ooooh-ooh
C
Oooooooooo-ooooh-ooh
Emi
Oooooooooo-ooooh-ooh
C           
Oooooooooo-ooooh-ooh  oooh
x 2

[Verse 3]
         G
And I'll always be happy if you choose to call
   C
or write me a letter saying all that you saw and
D                                                        C
how things have changed since our days there on Noxontown Pond

    G
No don't be a stranger, no don't go too far
                C
and though you love places that have lots of stars
      D                                             C
just know in the city, you'll always have a place to stay

[Final Chorus]
  G
Oh James
  C
Oh James
x2

  G
Oh James (Oooooooooo-ooooh-ooh)
  C
Oh James (Oooooooooo-ooooh-ooh)
  Emi
Oh James (Oooooooooo-ooooh-ooh)
  C
Oh James (Oooooooooo-ooooh-ooh)

x2

[Outro]
(ritardando)
G
Oooooooooo-ooooh-ooh
C
Oooooooooo-ooooh-ooh
Emi
Oooooooooo-ooooh-ooh
C
Oooh
