On this song the band uses a variant of the C/G chord  where the C chord is.....  
It is not a true C.  While I am not sure I am 100% correct that the chord I use is right, 
I know I am pretty darn close.  Also note that I play this song on a 12 string guitar.  
It gives the song an added ambience.   ROCK ON!!!!!

The C/G Chord I use is:  OR it can be played:
E   3                    3

Fear of Falling
        - The Badlees

Last night I dreamt of flying
Over hillsides in the snow
And I dove down through the clouds
Into the valley there below
When the fields turned into parking lots
My freedom turned to dread
The ground rose up to greet me
And I jumped up out of bed

You can fly, fly, fly
Off to anywhere you choose
You can try, try, try
But eventually you'll lose
It seems there's always something
            G                C
Tryin' to bring a good man down (stretch the word when sung)
    C            G
I have no fear of falling
But I hate hitting the ground

Searchin' through my sofa
Tryin' to find some extra change
I thought that I knew everything
'Til everything changed
Now I'm standing on an island
That is sinking into the sea
And all that I can do
Is just enjoy the scenery

Well, you can fly, fly, fly
Off to anywhere you choose
You can try, try, try
But eventually you'll lose
They say a man hears sweet, soft music
Just before he drowns
I have no fear of falling
But I hate hitting the ground (repeat line)

(Insert Solo Here)
(Sorry folks, haven't figured out the rhythm part during the solo.  If I =
I'll post an update to this song.  But I can say that it appears to be =
progression in Em.)

You and I have politics
There's lines that we don't cross
And we live happily ever after
Inside this little box
But you just can't take a lion
And throw him into a cage
And expect him to be thankful
For the shelter that you gave

(repeat chorus three times and slowly fade)

You can fly, fly, fly
Off to anywhere you choose
You can try, try, try
But eventually you'll lose
The more you try to cling to me
The less I'll stick around
I have no fear of falling
But I hate hitting the ground
