[Verse]                         

                    D  Dsus2  D
Where in hell can you go
C                        G
Far from the things you know
C                         G 
Far from the sprawl of concrete
                       D Dsus2 D                     Em 
That keeps crawling its way    about a 1,000 miles a day
                    D Dsus2 D
Take one last look behind
C                          G
Commit this to memory and mind
C                                G
Don't miss this wasteland, this terrible place
          D  Dsus2 D                         Em
When you leave    keep your heart off your sleeve


[Chorus]

   G           D  Dsus2 D             
Motherland  cradle me
          C
Close my eyes
               G
Lullaby me to sleep
     C
Keep me safe
            G 
Lie with me

Stay beside me
      D Dsus2 D 
Don't go
           Em
Don't you go


[Verse]

Em                    D   Dsus2 D
Oh, my five and dime queen
C                      G
Tell me what have you seen
     C     
The lust and the avarice
     G                           D  Dsus2 D
The bottomless, the cavernous greed
                  Em
Is that what you see?


[Chorus]

   G           D  Dsus2 D             
Motherland  cradle me
          C
Close my eyes
               G
Lullaby me to sleep
     C
Keep me safe
            G 
Lie with me

Stay beside me
      D Dsus2 D 
Don't go
           Em
Don't you go


[Bridge]

           C
It's your happiness
        G
I want most of all
         C           A           D  
And for that I'd do anything at all
   Dsus2   D
Oh, mercy me!
                 C
If you want the best of it
        G
Or the most of all
            C       A            D  Dsus2 D
If there's anything I can do at all
 C G C A D Dsus2 D  Em

Em                    D Dsus2 D
Now come on shot gun bride
C                        G
What makes me envy your life
C
Faceless, nameless
G
Innocent, blameless
     D   Dsus2 D
And free
                  Em
What's it like to be?


[Chorus]

   G           D  Dsus2 D             
Motherland  cradle me
          C
Close my eyes
               G
Lullaby me to sleep
     C
Keep me safe
            G 
Lie with me

Stay beside me
      D Dsus2 D 
Don't go
      D Dsus2 D     Em
Don't go

The D/Dsus2/D on the first line of every verse is wrong, it should be a Bm. (Just watch the YouTube video of her playing this song at Celtic Connections if you are not convinced.

It is definitely Bm there. Moreover, in the instrumental part after the bridge, she plays the verse chords, not the bridge chords.
