[Intro - E, A, E, E, B, E]

            E                         A      E  
Tell me who was it told you 'bout the broken bones,
    E                   B
The broken bones in the sky,
       E                      A             E 
'Cause I've been all over the whole goddamn world,
    C#m      B        E
And over the world am I.


        E                            A          E
Now the moon it ain't nothing but an old rotten bone,
E                        B 
Hung from the ceiling so high,
     E                        A              E
It reminds kids to grow and reminds them to dream,
    C#m      B        E
But over the world am I.


      C#m               G#m
So my friends if you're worried,
      A           E
Don't worry about me,
     C#m        G#m
The grasses are green here,
    A           B
The winters are mild,
    C#m           G#m
And the hunger is passing,
     A      E
It's just a sensation,
    C#m      B        E
And over the world am I.


[Short Instrumental - E, A, E, E, B, E]


   E                A         E          
Up in the city it's panic and toil,
   E               B
In every fiber and vein,
    E                              A          E                         
All dressed up like kings in their robes of desire,
    C#m       B       E
The poets are going insane.


         E                     A             E
But I've been to the ocean her salts they do heal,
    E                     B
And washed me anew in her tides,
    E                        A         E
And now I ride easy down her cool wide waves,
    C#m      B        E
And over the world am I.


      C#m               G#m
So my friends if you're worried,
      A           E
Don't worry about me,
     C#m        G#m
The grasses are green here,
    A           B
The winters are mild,
    C#m           G#m
And the hunger is passing,
     A      E
It's just a sensation,
    C#m      B        E
And over the world am I.


[Instrumental - Repeat Chorus x2 (So my friends if you're worried...)]


      C#m               G#m
So my friends if you're worried,
      A           E
Don't worry about me,
     C#m        G#m
The grasses are green here,
    A           B
The winters are mild,
    C#m           G#m
And the hunger is passing,
     A      E
It's just a sensation,
    C#m      B        E
And over the world am I.

Hey Graham,
I've submitted another version that fits with the session here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8QcjbeL81M
It's based entirely on your version here and I've obviously given you credit. Check it out if you'd like to. I just thought you should know.
