The intro pattern pretty much repeats throughout the song. Standard tuning, unlike 
almost every other Tallest Man song. I'm not quite sure about the lyrics, but I 
think the rest is pretty accurate.

Verse:

Dm                G          C        F
   I'm just a dreamer but I'm hanging on
Dm             G              C       F
   Though I am nothing big to offer
Dm              G              C            F
   I watch the birds, how they dive in then gone
          E                F            Gsus4   G
It's like nothing in this world's ever still

Dm                G          C               F
   And I'm just a shadow of your thoughts in me
Dm               G             C         F
   But sun is setting, shadows growing
Dm             G             C       F
   A long cast figure will turn into night
          E                F          Gsus4   G
It's like nothing in this world ever sleeps


Chorus:

   C             F              G        C     (C/B)
Oh sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
    Am             F        Gsus4   G
And why can't that always be
C       F              G        C     (C/B)
Tossing aside from your birches crown
Am          F         Gsus4   G
Just enough dark to see
N.C.
How you're the light over me

Dm G C F x2

Verse:
And by your side, girl, where the acres grow
Into the strong and stunning meadow
A cowboy stumbling in the finest field
And nothing good out there won't be old

Chorus:
Oh sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
And why can't that always be
Tossing aside from your birches crown
Just enough dark to see
How you're the light over me

(same as chorus)
C F G C (C/B)
Am F Gsus4 G

Chorus:
Sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
And why can't that always be
Tossing aside from your birches crown
Just enough dark to see
How you're the light over me

(same as the intro)
Dm G C F x6

In a live performance on youtube the F is played as a Fmaj7 (003210), and the Dm and G are barre chords (xx7765)(x55433) but other than that this is perfect.

if you're going to do fmaj7 you still need to hit that F base note with your thumb don't you? (133210)?
