2nd fret
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:

Using a capo just eliminates barre chords that are tough to play for some people...like me!! Lol! This still plays right along with the CD track :)

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.
