third fret with transpose -3 to play in the same key with less barre chords.

[Intro]
Eb Cm Ab

[Verse 1]
Eb                Eb                     
Sunday morning,     skeleton tree
Cm                    Ab         
Oh, nothing is for free
Eb               Eb             
In the window, a candle
Cm                     Ab         
Well, maybe you can see
Eb                  Db                   
Fallen leaves         thrown across the sky
Cm        Bb            
A jittery TV 
Eb                 Eb             
Glowing white like fire
Cm              Ab            
Nothing is for free
Eb            Eb                  
I called out,   I called out
Cm                Ab            
Right across the sea
Eb                      Eb             
But the echo comes back empty
Cm                 Ab            
And nothing is for free

[Instrumental]
Eb Db Cm Bb
Eb Eb Cm Ab

[Verse 2]
Eb             Eb               
Sunday morning,    skeleton tree
Cm                  Ab           
Pressed against the sky
Eb            Eb           
The jittery TV
Cm                 Ab           
Glowing white like fire
Eb                Db              
And I called out,    I called out
Cm               Bb           
Right across the sea
Eb            Eb              
I called out,   I called out
Cm                  Ab          
That nothing is for free

[Outro] 
       Eb      Eb      Cm     Ab
And it's   al----right now
       Eb      Eb      Cm     Ab
And it's   al----right now
       Eb      Eb      Cm     Ab
And it's   al----right now
