There are many videos of this song which require a capo on 3rd fret. HOWEVER, 
these are NOT the original. For the original song, place a capo on the 1st fret. 

Also, please check out my cover on the song, performed on saxophone and acoustic guitar :)

Intro: A - Em - G - D X2 (Wake me if you're out there!)

 
Verse:

A                       Bm             G
Through the glass in my bedroom window, 
(G)
In the bushes far below, 
A                       Bm             G
I thought I saw an unfamiliar shadow, 
(G)
Among the ones I so clearly know. 

Bridge:

Em                          G                    A
I've been sleeping with the nightlight unplugged, 
(A)
With a note on the rocking chair, 
Em                          G                   A
That says I'm dreaming of the life I once loved, 
(A)
So wake me if you're out there. 

Chorus:

G                   A
Living close to the ground, 
Bm                          E
It's seventh heaven because there are angels all around, 
G                  A
Among my frivolous thoughts, 
     D              G         Em                 A
I believe there are beautiful things seen by the astronauts.
D                    G
So wake me if you're out there! 


(Repeat intro, verse, bridge and chorus)

Bm                        A                              G               
I keep my knees black and blue 'cause they often hit the hardwood floor,
 A
(Wake me if you're out there), 
Bm                    A                          G      A
And I believe, so I'm not praying to the ceiling anymore.


(Repeat bridge, and then play the chorus TWICE) 

 
Outro:

G                     A
So if you're dying to see, 

(A)     D             G      Em          A         D.... (Hold)
I guarantee there are angels around your vicinity

I'm sorry, I think I'm wrong in saying the original has a capo on first, I believe it's actually on the second fret - sorry if I've confused anyone :(
