I've been holding onto the gold
             C         C/B    Am7     Am7
When letting go would free my hand
              C        C/B          Am7     Am7
And I've been tying your tongue in a knot
              C        C/B          Am7     Am7
Oh! I've been tying your tongue in a knot

To wrap this death in a sheet

There were too many heavy boots

Marching through

[Outro]
        C      C/B       Am7     Am7
So I'm counting it to the sky

Oh! I'm counting it to the sky
        C      C/B       Am7     Am7
I'm counting it to the sky

Oh! I'm counting it to the sky
  Am7     Am7   Am7     Am7
Moving back, oh I'm
    Am7     Am7                 G (strum)
Moving back to face the lack of home

I think the C/B in the beginning is supposed to be a G, and she may or may not play an Am instead of the first Am7. So you'd play:

C G Am Am7
e|-----------------|
B|---1---0---1---1-|
G|-0---0---2---0---|
D|--2---0---2---2--|
A|3-------0---0----|
e|----3------------|

At least that's what I hear. The rest of the tab is spot on.
