N.C. at the very end means, no chord!
Capo on 2nd fret, means 2nd fret is now fret 0!

First, this sequence is going to be played a lot, inclusive on intro:

A, E4(7M), E4, E4(7M), A

and it should be played like this:

       A,       AA,      E4,  E4(7M),
       Taaaaa, tada, ta daaa, ta daaa 
                     E4(7M)       A 

The E4(daaa) will be played and let fade a little bit, and when the second E4(7M)(ta) comes,
is when you start singing the next verse.

The chord fingering of intro is:
F#m 244222
D/F# x54232
B x24442
G 3x5433
A x02220
E4(7M) x02240
E4 x02250

[Intro]
F#m D/F# B G
A E4(7M) E4 E4(7M) A
A E4(7M) E4 E4(7M) A
A E4(7M) E4 E4(7M) A

This is how intro should be played:

e|--2---|---2---|---2--|---3--|---0---0-0-0-0--0-0-|
B|--2---|---3---|---4--|---3--|---2---2-2-4-5--4-2-|
G|--2---|---2---|---4--|---4--|---2---2-2-2-2--2-2-|
D|--4---|---4---|---4--|---5--|---2---2-2-2-2--2-2-|
A|--4---|--5----|--2---|------|--0----0-0-0-0--0-0-|
E|--2---|-------|------|--3---|--------------------|

[Verse 1]

        A     A         E4(7M)  E4    E4(7M)  A     A  E4(7M)  E4
Did you think that your feet    had   been    bound

E4(7M)  A          E4(7M) E4 E4(7M)  A        A E4(7M) E4 E4(7M)
By what gravity brings       to the  ground?

        F#m           D/F#             F#m        D/F#
Did you feel you were tricked   By the future you picked?

              A   E4(7M) E4 E4(7M)
Well, come on down

          F#m          D/F#              F#m          D/F#
All those rules don't apply  When you're high in the sky

            A   E4(7M) E4 E4(7M)  A   
So, come on down          Come on down


[Chorus]
             E           B                  F#m           B
We're coming down to the ground  There's no better place to go
          F#m            B                    F#m         B
We've got snow up on the mountains  We've got rivers down below
             E           B                   F#m           B
We're coming down to the ground  We hear the birds sing in the trees
        F#m                 B                  F#m              B
And the land will be looked after  We send the seeds out in the breeze


[Verse 2]
A  E4(7M) E4   E4(7M)  A E4(7M) E4

E4(7M)  A           E4(7M)  E4  E4(7M)  A     A E4(7M) E4
Did you think you'd escaped from rou     tine

E4(7M)  A             E4(7M)  E4   E4(7M)  A      A E4(7M) E4 E4(7M)
By      changing the script        and the scene?

   F#m          D/F#               F#m      D/F#
Despite all you made of it  You're always afraid

       A   E4(7M) E4 E4(7M) A
Of the change

A   E4(7M) E4 E4(7M)       F#m          D/F#                F#m        D/F#
              You've got a lot on your chest  Well, you can come as my guest

        A E4(7M) E4E4(7M) A
So, come on down          Come on down


[Chorus]
             E           B                  F#m           B
We're coming down to the ground  There's no better place to go
          F#m            B                    F#m         B
We've got snow up on the mountains  We've got rivers down below
             E           B                   F#m           B
We're coming down to the ground  We hear the birds sing in the trees
        F#m                 B                  F#m              B
And the land will be looked after  We send the seeds out in the breeze


[Verse 3]
B                      A                             B
  Like the fish in the ocean  We felt at home in the sea
                           A                                   B
We learned to live off the good land  We learned to climb up a tree
                      A                      B
Then we got up on two legs  But we wanted to fly
                      A                             B
When we messed up our homeland  We set sail for the sky


[Chorus]
             E           B                  F#m           B
We're coming down to the ground  There's no better place to go
          F#m            B                    F#m         B
We've got snow up on the mountains  We've got rivers down below
             E           B                   F#m           B
We're coming down to the ground  We hear the birds sing in the trees
        F#m                 B                  F#m              B
And the land will be looked after  We send the seeds out in the breeze


[Verse 4]
             F#m  B                    F#m     B
We're coming down(down)  Coming down to Earth (down)
               F#m    B                     F#m                B
Like babies at birth (down)  Coming down to Earth (down to the earth)
                 F#m             B                       F#m               B
We're gonna find new priorities (down)  These are extraordinary qualities (down)
B    F#m     B
Down down to earth


[Chorus]
             E           B                  F#m           B
We're coming down to the ground  There's no better place to go
          F#m            B                    F#m         B
We've got snow up on the mountains  We've got rivers down below
             E           B                   F#m           B
We're coming down to the ground  We hear the birds sing in the trees
        F#m                 B                  F#m              B
And the land will be looked after  We send the seeds out in the breeze 

[Chorus]
             E           B                  F#m           B
We're coming down to the ground  There's no better place to go
          F#m            B                    F#m         B
We've got snow up on the mountains  We've got rivers down below
             E           B                   F#m           B
We're coming down to the ground  We hear the birds sing in the trees
        F#m                 B                  F#m              B
And the land will be looked after  We send the seeds out in the breeze 

[Ending]
             F#m                B                     F#m            B     
We're gonna find new priorities    These are extraordinary qualities
           F#m     B
To find on earth
