As you see you play the Barre? chords with open BE- strings. I don?t know if the chords have other name.
It?s a little bit difficult to play the E and ESUS4 chords like Shawn do. Listen to the song and you 
it out.
This way to play the song is close to the original.

INTRO:
Play E /ESUS4   B

E /ESUS4
on a mantle made of oakwood
E /ESUS4
there's a photograph from my childhood
E			  B
it was taken in the desert early light
E /ESUS4

E /ESUS4
with a mexican vest and a red hippie hat on
              B 		               D    B
maracas in my left hand, stick in my right
   E     	F#		     D	  E /ESUS4

            C#m    B     ASUS2          E   E /ESUS4    B
i am held captive by the big blue sky above me

she naps with the tv on
E /ESUS4
i smell the june cut grass from my pappy's lawn
E /ESUS4                      B
i play alone in the little room upstairs
E /ESUS4
there are lincoln logs and cookie tins
E /ESUS4
colored blocks and wars to win
E /ESUS4                       B              D   B
i draw and i dream and beat my drums up there
           E     F#             D           E /ESUS4

E               F#             D    B
there are daffodils and dogwood trees
              C#m   B    ASUS2          E
i am held captive by the big blue sky above me


Between here play the following chords (fingerplay):

EADGBE		EADGBE		EADGBE
4xx400		5xx400		7xx800   2X   and play B at last

E /ESUS4
now the coffee's strong
E /ESUS4

E /ESUS4			 B
and my wakeup call's for somebody else
E /ESUS4

                 B
always keep my laughing at myself
       D                        B
and i laugh a lot that's what i do
       D                       B
and i learn the things i never knew
 E            F#           D   E /ESUS4
and i see canyons i see caverns
      E       F#         D        B
i see border roadside taverns
              C#m      B     ASUS2         E
and i am held captive by the big blue sky above me
   E           B              ASUS2      E
i am held captive only by the big blue sky
  E            B          ASUS2          E     ASUS2   B      E  and fade out
i am held captive by the big blue sky above me
