I don't think these are the exact picking patterns, but they gets to job done I suppose. 
Gavin also occasionally adds an 0h2 hammer-on on the A string for G chords and on 
the D string for C chords.

Verse 1:

      F                                F                F
Well, I woke up this morning with dead leaves inside my bed.
                 F                                     G
You said "You're better off just where you are than to be stuck in my head.
              F                                    F          F
You've got to leave it all behind you and give yourself up to chance."
   Am     G         F
So I gave myself to chance.

Verse 2:

      F                                    F                   F
And I packed a little suitcase, brushed my teeth and washed my hands.
          F                                            G
I've been bluffing here for years and now I think it's time I showed my hand.
             F                         F              Fmaj7
I'm going to move to New York City and set the sky on fire.
              Am            G                 F
Oh, don't the night look so alive with it's desire

Chorus 1:

   F                  F
To cross the River Jordan?
       G                   F
But it just don't feel the same.
       F                   F
When I came home Friday morning
     Am           G       F      F
With no one but myself to blame.
     Am           G       F

Verse 3:

    F                               F                 F
See I have trouble with numbers and paying the ones I owe.
      F                          G
And I put what I had left in the pocket of my coat.
       F                                     F                 F
I went out to find a liquor store and make a home there in the snow,
       Am            G                F
Give myself a little shelter from the cold.

Chorus 2:

           F                F
See, I was bound here by my choices.
      G                  F
Oh my god how I felt so ashamed.
        F                    F
Still I hoped that you might join us
              Am              G             F
And take this little light of ours out on parade

Melodica Section (played twice):

Am    G    F    F
Am    G    F    F

Verse 4:

  F                                 F             F
I used to look at others and try to find a way to grow.
        F                                   G
And now I just look around and I'm going to reap the seeds I've sown.
             F                          F                 Fmaj7
And I try to picture myself in Oslo but lord help me if I go.
          Am                     G                      F
I've been running around and I believe it's starting to show.

Chorus 3:

            F                  F
And so I'll cross the River Jordan
          G                   F
And if it just don't feel the same.
        F               F
And I'm not home Friday morning
          Am           G       F      F
I'll have no one but myself to blame.
