Capo 6 for easier playing, I've changed a few chords for ease

Em            D               C         Em
I find the map and draw a straight line
Em            D               C         Em            
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
Em            D               C         Em
The distance from here to where you'd be
Em            D               C         Em
It's only finger-lengths that I see

Em          D  C  Em                
I touch the place
Em                  D   C  Em
where I'd find your face
Em            D     C    Em
My fingers in creases
Em              D    C   Em
Of distant dark places

Em            D               C         Em
I hang my coat up in the first bar
Em            D               C         Em
There is no peace that I've found so far
Em            D               C         Em
The laughter penetrates my silence
Em            D               C         Em
As drunken men find flaws in science

Em                  D  C  Em   
Their words mostly noises
Em               D  C  Em   
Ghosts with just voices
Em                D  C  Em   
Your words in my memory
Em              D  C  Em   
Are like music to me

Em               G        
I'm miles from where you are
  D                  C
I lay down on the cold ground
Em                       G
I, I pray that something picks me up
    D                      C
And sets me down in your warm arms

Em            D               C         Em
After I have travelled so far
Em            D               C         Em
We'd set the fire to the third bar
Em            D               C         Em
We'd share each other like an island
Em            D               C         Em
Until exhausted, close our eyelids

Em                  D  C   Em 
And dreaming, pick up from
Em                  D  C   Em 
The last place we left off
Em                  D  C   Em 
Your soft skin is weeping
Em                  D  C   Em 
A joy you can't keep in

Em               G        
I'm miles from where you are
  D                  C
I lay down on the cold ground
Em                       G
I, I pray that something picks me up
    D                      C
And sets me down in your warm arms

Em               G        
I'm miles from where you are
  D                  C
I lay down on the cold ground
Em                       G
I, I pray that something picks me up
    D                      C         Em
And sets me down in your warm arms
