I wasn't satisfied with tabs I found so far, so here's my version

Peter Gabriel, Thomas Newman - Down to Earth

Capo 1
Bb = [113331], C* = [335553], G = [355433], F = [133211], C = [332010]

Intro:
Bb C* x4  (slide your pinky to 6th fret and then back when strumming C*)

Verse 1:
          Bb             C*             Bb   C*
Did you think that your feet had been bound
          Bb       C*            Bb    C*
By what gravity brings to the ground?
         G            C*
Did you feel you were tricked
         G        C*
By the future you picked?
               Bb   C*  Bb  C
Well, come on down

           G         C*
All those rules don’t apply
            G          C*
When you’re high in the sky
             Bb      C*
So, come on down
         Bb
Come on down


Chorus 1:
              F           C
We’re coming down to the ground
             F            C
There’s no better place to go
           Bb             C
We’ve got snow up on the mountains
           F           C
We’ve got rivers down below
              F          C
We’re coming down to the ground
             F                C
We hear the birds sing in the trees
          Bb               C
And the land will be looked after
             F               C
We send the seeds out in the breeze


Bb C* x2

Verse 2:
          Bb            C*          Bb    C*
Did you think you’d escaped from routine
    Bb            C*            Bb     C*
By changing the script and the scene?
G               C* 
Despite all you made of it
        G      C*   
You’re always afraid
        Bb   C*  Bb  C*
Of the change

              G         C*
You’ve got a lot on your chest
               G        C*
Well, you can come as my guest
             Bb      C*
So come on down
          Bb  
Come on down



Chorus 1.

Bridge:
                      Bb
Like the fish in the ocean
                        C*
We felt at home in the sea
                           Bb
We learned to live off the good land
                       C*
Learned to climb up a tree
                       Bb
Then we got up on two legs
                C*
But we wanted to fly
                       Bb
When we messed up our homeland
                     C*
We set sail for the sky


Chorus 1.

Chorus 2:
              F    C
We’re coming down
                 F   C
Coming down to Earth
                F    C
Like babies at birth
                 F   C
Coming down to Earth
                    F       C
We’re gonna find new priorities
                   F       C
These are extraordinary qualities
F     C
F      C
Down to Earth

Chorus 1.
Chorus 2.


F    C to fade

Just so you don't have a any doubts that this tab is correct, I recorded the song on YouTube before posting this tab. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zd3EVicsEOM
You can also play along with the record.
So don't be greedy with "stars" when rating this tab :)
If you know how to improve the intro, please post a comment.
