The titular song of the Song of a Dead Man EP
It is played half-step down in the recorded version, though I know he has played regular tuning for live
performances. 
Sorry if some of the lyrics are not 100%--I tried my best!
Anyways, please rate/comment :) 

Intro: Am   D    Am    D

Am                                  D
He came to the light of the sun in ‘55
Am                                         D
The time when a man would look you in the eyes
Am
And now he lay by the lady who he gave his name 
             D
through the winds of the winter and the summer rain 
     Am                                      D
But alive in the only way it really means to be
           F                         Em             Am                          
Now come on, black rider, won’t you ride along with me

Am    D    Am    D

Am                                          D
He came to the people in the year I came to be
Am                                          D
And sang hallelujah ‘till he sank into the sea
            Am                         
And now he lay in a corner where nobody knows,
            D
where the graze is so fallow anywhere he goes
     Am                                      D
And alive in the only way it really means to be
           F                        Em             Am
Now come on, holy rider, won’t you sing along with me

                F                               Am
See there’s a hurry that don’t wait up for the fool who’s taking time
               F                              Am                
And there’s a fury that don’t let up for the ruler in the sky
                F                         Am     C
And there’s something I don’t quite understand
               F                Em            Am
Oh there’s something about the song of a dead man

Am    D     Am    D

Am                                                 D
It’s strange how the living don’t seem to live at all
Am                                             D
A ghost has a way of making all of this seem small
          Am                                    
And now I lay in the shadow of the ones who shone 
         D
like a flame in the night of a long ago
     Am                                    D
But alive with a heartbeat beating away indeed
                F                     Em               Am
And now come on, versifier, don’t you put that fire on me
            F                     Em               Am
Say come on, versifier, don’t you put that fire on me
 
                F                               Am  
See there’s a hurry that don’t wait up for the fool who’s taking time 
               F                              Am 
And there’s a fury that don’t let up for the ruler in the sky 
              F                            Am      C 
And there’s something I don’t quite understand 
              F                 Em             Am        Am
Oh there’s something about the song of a dead man 

G                    Am
Ooohhhh where did he go?
G                  F                   
Ooohhhh above or below
G                 Am
Ooohhhh maybe between
G                       F               C
Ooohhhh whatever that means

               F                                Am  
See there’s a hurry that don’t wait up for the fool who’s taking time 
               F                              Am 
And there’s a fury that don’t let up for the ruler in the sky 
               F                           Am      C 
And there’s something I don’t quite understand 
              F                 Em            Am         
Oh there’s something about the song of a dead man
              F                 Em            Am      C
Oh there’s something about the song of a dead man
              F                 Em            Am              
Oh there’s something about the song of a dead man
