Right. Two things.
First, put a Capo on the 1st Fret.
Second, there's a chord used in this song that goes 010220. I have no idea what 
this chord is called, but it sounds right. I saw someone else call it a Em/Cmaj7. 
So if it says that, that's what I mean. 
Now that's out of the way, here are your chords for this amazing song!
[Verse 1]
                         (G)  (C)  (G)
You are a splendid butterfly
                              (Em)       (Em/Cmaj7)  (Em)
It is your wings that make you beautiful
                     (D)       (C)
And I could make you fly away
                       (G)      (C)  (G)
But I could never make you stay
                        (G)        (C)  (G)
You said you were in love with me
                               (Em)    (Em/Cmaj7) (Em)
Both of us know that that's impossible
                      (D)         (C)       
And I could make you rue the day
                        (G)       (C)  (G)
But I could never make you stay
                        (D)   (C)
Not for all the tea in China
Not if I could sing like a bird
                      (D)   (C)    
Not for all North Carolina
Not for all my little words
                         (D)   (C)
Not if I could write for you
The sweetest song you ever heard
                       (D)      (C)
It doesn't matter what I'll do
                      (G)    (C)  (G)
Not for all my little words

[VERSE 2] (tablature the same as verse 1)
Now that you've made me want to die
You tell me that you're unboyfriendable
And I could make you pay and pay
But I could never make you stay

And that's the song! Have fun with it!

Nice tab!
The chord you mentioned (010220) doesn't exist like that and an Em/Cmaj7 doesn't exist either. I understand your confusion but the chord that comes closest to that chord is an (x1x220) which is an A/A#, you can as well play it like (x12220).
When I listen to the song I think he plays just an Em but seek for yourself what you like. Hope this helps. Great tab though!

no the chord is 022010 so is basically a cmaj7 inversion. the thing u r doin throughout the whole song is that u hammeron the b string (the c note). so that's y (G) (C) (G) is put there bc u will play 32001x on the "(C) chord". and do sus4 and sus2 on the d chord for a little melody line
