This guy is the most underrated guy I've ever seen/heard.

This song sounds best tuned a whole step down (like the album).
Sounds good a half step down.
In standard it may be a bit high for us baritones to sing along.

Intro:

    G    G/E
e|---3--|-3---|
A|---0--|-0---|
G|---0--|-0---|
D|---0--|-0---|
A|---2--|-2---|
E|---3--|-0---|


G(three barrs)  G/E
G  G/E


  C/G
e|--0--|
B|--1--|
G|--0--|
D|--2--|
A|--3--|
E|--3--|

G        C/G        Em            C/G         Em 
He has a flowering spade growing out of his chest
        D         D7
full of magic and healing,
G        C/G        Em            C/G             Em
She is a flowering spade and she moves and she sways
        D        D7
you can see that she feels it.

--For the next section play very percussively It looks something like this--

   C            G            A            Bm
e|----x--x-x-x-|--5--x-x-x--|-----x-x-x--|-7-x-7-7-|
B|----5--x-x-x-|--5--x-x-x--|--7--x-x-x--|-7-x-7-7-|
G|----5--x-x-x-|--5--x-x-x--|--7--x-x-x--|-7-x-7-7-|
D|-------x-x-x-|------------|------------|---------|
A|--3----------|------------|5-----------|---------|
E|-------------|3-----------|------------|---------|

Play the bm* like this

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

C       G             A           Bm      
She's off to dance with the goat boys,
C       G             Bm*           D7
He's off to sail through your wide open ocean.
C       G             A           Bm
She learned to sing from a siren,
C       G             A           Bm*
He learned to swim from a drop in the water.

G         C/G               Em               C/G             Em
There are words, there are signs, close your eyes, there is magic
D         D7
inside you.
G         C/G          Em             C/G            Em         
Hear this box in your mind, building frames for to trace your 
D         D7
desires.


C      G          A     Bm
She learned to cook from a sailor,
C      G            Bm*         D7
He learned to cry in an elephant circus.
C     G            A        Bm
She found a recipe for flying,
C       G          Bm*          D7      
He's growing flowers to understand dying.

G  G/E
Re-Joyce...

Then if you want to for the Humming section you can do it over the verse

G G/E  C/F  Em C/F Em D D7

And the oop ba badada stuff you can do to percussive progression

C G A Bm

Hope you like it... Cheers!

During the percussive part the bass not is actually

e|------x-x-|-7-x--7
B|---7--x-x-|-7-x--7
G|---7--x-x-|-7-x--7
D|----------|-------
A|-5*-------|-------
E|----------|-------
