Capo
novice
2nd fret
I've listened to it a bunch and I think this is closer to the song on the album.  
I am not positive about the Dm11, but I know it's not just a D.

Capo on 2nd fret

G       Em
Another perfect day
G         Em
They keep piling up
G     Em
I got happiness
       C                   D
that I can't maintain so beginner's luck

G     Em
I had shoes to fill
G       Em
Walkin' barefoot now
G          Em
Can't tell north from south
    C                     D
but no split hair's gonna get me down now


CHORUS
C                 Em         Em add9
Stayin' 'bove the flat line
C                G
I'm ahead of the curve
C                   G
Take a piece of the sunshine with me
     C                  D
on a red eye flight to another world

C            Em     Em add9
It isn't any trouble
C                      G
if you wanna come with me
C                      G
I know it's out of the question, honey
      C                  D
but I sure could use the company
      C        G    Em    G   Em
and a place to be


VERSE
G       Em
Now the sky is pink
G        Em
Roof top swimmin' pool
G       Em
I'm not care free, no
    C                    D
I'm free to care, I just never do


G       Em
All the bags are checked
G       Em
and the reasons why
G         Em
Yesterday lingers on
           C                           D
That's the peace you can keep when you say goodbye

CHORUS
C                    Em      Em add9
You can get what you want now
C                   G
Knock it out of the park
C              G
Bury it by the river
                C                     D
Easy, there's a search party but it's gettin' dark

C                   Em     Em add9
I won't hold you to nothin'
C                 G
I wanna make that plain
C                 G
Probably end up a stranger and crazy
        C                     D
but I'm still hoping there's another way
      C        G     Em   G    C   Dm11      
and a place to stay

BRIDGE
Em     Bm        C       D    G
What a scene has gotcha' sentimental
Em                   C                     G
when the night comes, when the night comes loose
Em      Bm            C      D      G
All the things you've put up on the mantle
       C                              D
What a shame, what a shame,  it's old news

CHORUS
    C                 Em       Em add9
I'm stayin' 'bove the flat line
C                G
I'm ahead of the curve
C                   G
Take a piece of the sunshine with me
      C                   D
on an all night drive to another world

C                    Em      Em add9
You can get what you want now
C                   G
Knock it out of the park
C                 G
Probably end up a drifter and lonely
        C                  D
but I'm still hoping for a change of heart
      C                          G         Em  G  Em  G  Em  G  Em
and a place, a place, a place to start
