Simple version in the bottom for those who just want the chords.

First part is for people who also feel they need to know when the chords change :)


Verse 1:
  Bm             D        Bm
A kite above a graveyard grey

       F#m               G        F#m
At the end of the line far far away

  D                       A                  Bm
A child holding on to the magic of birth and awe


Interlude(This is where tin whistles has a part usually):Bm, F#m, D, A, Bm


 Bm             D        Bm
Oh, how beautiful it used to be

     F#m               G        F#m
Just you and me far beyond the sea

    D                A         Bm (Hold it for the refrain)
The waters, scarce in motion quivering still


Refrain:
                  G         A       Bm
At the end of the river the sundown beams

D                    A         Bm
All the relics of a life long lived

G           D         A         Bm
Here, weary traveller rest your wand

          E        G         Bm
Sleep the journey from your eyes


Bm, F#m, D, A, Bm

Verse 2:
Bm             D        Bm
Good journey, love, time to go

  F#m                       G        F#m
I checked your teeth and warmed your toes

  D                A              Bm
In the horizon I see them coming for you

Bm             D        Bm
The mermaid's grace, the forever call

F#m                        G        F#m
Beauty in spyglads on an old man's porch

    D                    A                     Bm
The mermaids you turned loose brought back your tears


Refrain:

                  G         A       Bm
At the end of the river the sundown beams

D                    A         Bm
All the relics of a life long lived

G           D         A         Bm
Here, weary traveller rest your wand

          E        G         Bm
Sleep the journey from your eyes


Bridge:
Bm, E, D, A, Bm, E, G, 
A, Bm

Refrain:

                  G         A       Bm
At the end of the river the sundown beams

D                    A         Bm
All the relics of a life long lived

G           D         A         Bm
Here, weary traveller rest your wand

          E        G         Bm
Sleep the journey from your eyes


And Again:

                  G         A       Bm
At the end of the river the sundown beams

D                    A         Bm
All the relics of a life long lived

G           D         A         Bm
Here, weary traveller rest your wand

          E        G         Bm
Sleep the journey from your eyes


Outro:
Bm, F#m, D, A, Bm, F#m, 
D, A, Bm

SIMPLE VERSION:

Verse: Bm-D-Bm, F#m-A-F#m, 
D-A-Bm(One stroke on the first D and A)
Interlude: Bm, F#m, D, A, Bm
Refrain: G-A-Bm,D-A-Bm, 
G-D-A-Bm, E-G-Bm
Outro: Bm, F#m, D, A, Bm, F#m, 
D, A, Bm

Chords:

Bm: 224432 OR 799777
D: 000232 OR 557775
F#m: 244222
A: 002220 OR 577655
E: 0221000 OR 779967
G: 320033(320003) OR 355433

The F#m can be tricky if you can't do bar chords yet, and it's hard to find a good 
replacement for it, however, it might be easier to do it at

-99(11)(11)(10)9- if you can.

If not, there's no real alternative than playing the song with a Capo on 2nd fret.

With capo, the chords are:

Bm = Am 002210
D = C 032010
F#m = Em 022000
A = 002220
E = D 000232
G = F 133211

Have fun :) E-mail me at Christian-cc@live.dk if you feel something should be corrected 
or you have some issue with the song, i'll be glad to help as much as i can.

Ps: I might adding some of the riffs too, at some point. Check back eventually for 
updates .p
