Hi there!  Great song, have fun!

**A user has pointed out that playing A#add9 [x1xx11] is what 
they play and it does sounds right! Thanks darkdoom1337!
This had good ratings for the Am/F[x0321x] that was in it's spot, 
so play that in place of the A#add9 if you still want to I guess :)

Standard Tuning
W/ capo on 2

Am G F -x2

Am           G              F            Am
  I find the map and draw a straight line
     G                  F          Am
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
             G                 F       Am
The distance from "A" to where you'd be
          G                   F    Am
It's only finger lengths that I see

            G F  Am              
I touch the place 
                    G F Am
Where I'd find your face
              G   F  Am
My fingers in creases
                G  F  Am
Of distant dark places

          G              F        Am
I hang my coat up in the first bar
            G                    F     Am
There is no peace that I've felt so far
             G             F      Am
The laughter penetrates my silence
           G                 F      Am
As drunken men find flaws in science

                   G  F  Am 
Their words mostly noises
                 G  F  Am 
Ghosts with just voices
                 G   F Am 
Your words in my memory
               G  F  Am 
Are like music to me

I'm miles from where you are,
 G                F             Am
I, lay down on the cold ground I,
I pray that something picks me up
    G                    A#add9 [x1xx11]
And, sets me down in your   warm arms

Am       G               F     Am
   After I have traveled so far
             G           F        Am
We'd set the fire to the third bar
                G             F     Am
We'd share each other like an island
        G                  F      Am
Until exhausted, close our eyelids

                  G  F   Am 
And dreaming pick up from
                  G    F  Am 
The last place we left off
                  G   F  Am 
Your soft skin is weeping
                G    F  Am 
A joy you can't keep in

I'm miles from where you are,
 G                F                 Am
I, lay down on the cold ground And I,
                      C              G
I pray that something picks me up and
                    A#add9        Am
Sets me down in your    warm arms

I'm miles from where you are
 G                F                 Am
I, lay down on the cold ground and I,
I pray that something picks me up
   G                    A#add9 ........ Am once  
and sets me down in your      warm arms

Have fun!! RATE!:)

Yes, it does sound good. However, there are no capos in the original.
Check this out and tell me if you see the guitar with a capo:

If you play x1xx11 instead of the x0321x with the capo on, you're playing it exactly like they do. It's a Cadd9 with the high G.

You say that you made sure all the lyrics were right and that your chords were in the right place in the text format, but there were still some mistakes. Everyone is usually fine with this, but I found your insistence that it is all correct when it isn't very annoying, and a bit conceited. For example "The distance from HERE to where you'd be" not "A," and in the first verse the g is on "State," not "and", and "science", not "in." Also, in the "Miles from where you are" sections the Bm becomes a Bm7. Its mostly correct, but when you say it's all perfect when it isn't is irritating.
