I've been playing this in two diffrent ways, and I settled with the easiest
way. I'ts a while since I played it, but I think I played it like this:

(Em) My days they are the (D) Highwaykind
(C) They only (D) come to (Em) leave
but the (D) leaving I don't (Em) mind
It's the (C) coming (D) that I (Em) cray
(D) pour the sun (Em) upon the ground
(D) stand to throw a (Bm) shadow
(D) watch it grow (Em) into the night
and (C) feel the (D) spinning (Em) sky

(Em) Time among the (D) pinetrees
it (C) felt like (D) breath of (Em) air
(D) usely I just walk this (Em) streets
and (C) tell (D) myself to (Em) care
(D) Sometimes I believe (Em) me
(D) sometimes I (C) don't (Bm) hear
(D)sometimes the (Em) shape I'm in
(C) won't (D) let me (Em) go

I (Em) don't know too (D) much for true
but my (C) heart knows (D) how to (Em) pine
(D) my legs know how to love (Em) someone
my (C) voice knows (D) how to (Em) sound
(D) shame that It's not (Em) enough
(D) shame that it (C) is A (Bm)
(D) follow the circle (Em) down
(C) where (D) would you (Em) be

(Em) You're the only (D) one I want
and (C) I've never (D) heard your (Em) name
(D) I hope we meet (Em) someday
if (C) we don't it's (D) all the (Em) same
(D) I'll meet the ones (Em) between us
(D) be thinking (C) about (Bm) you
(D) and all the places I have (Em) been
and (C) why you (D) where not (Em) there

I too am facinated by that song...T played it dropped down 1/2 step.(D flat)
it starts in Em, only its on the 5th position. i believe its called Em7, then
Em6,C, Em,Dm. it really threw me til i figured out the 1/2 step drop down...i
love that song?

On the Townes Tribute, JT played it with the Capo on the second fret and in
Dm...

He played the "B" chord just like an "A" on the second fret up from the Capo.
See the chords below.. From memory...(I haven't tried to play it...) I think
these chords are pretty close, thanks Gier!....db

In the part of the song where it goes from D to Bm, it sounds like should Dmajor Cmajor and then Bminor.
