Gm                                             Cm          F
 I'm fixing that drink in the morning, with the way things are
    Gm                        Cm    F
 You may have stayed too lonnnnnng
       Gm                                     Cm              F
 You're splitting apart at the seams, from the heart's bitter call
     Gm                   Cm     F

Chorus 1:
   Eb                      Bb   Eb                   Bb
 If there's a god up in the air, someone looking over everyone
    Eb                         Bb        F
 At least you got something to fall back onnnnnn

Verse 2:
Gm                                      Cm                 F
 Deep in the heart of the country was a house I built from love
Gm                            Cm    F
 A raven-headed lady, aaaallllll
Gm                                      Cm                    F
 Quiet and calm through the day, see the sunburn burn thru the hall
Gm                             Cm   F
 Approaching was a yellow...dog

Chorus 2:
 Eb                         Bb   Eb                  Bb    
 If there's a god up in the air, someone looking over everyone
Eb                             Bb        F
 At least you got something to fall back onnnnnn
    Eb                       Bb   Eb               Bb
 And what are  people really for? Does anybody even care?
Eb                     Bb              F

 If there's a god up in the air, someone looking over everyone
  Eb                           Bb        F
 At least you got something to fall back onnnnnn
Eb                      Bb         Eb               Bb
 Do ya got something to say? Is it something coming over you?
Eb                   Bb                     F

To make this simpler, first tune every note on your guitar one whole step down (DGCFAD). Now play the following as if you haven't mucked with the tuning:

Verse: Am Dm G

Chorus: F C G

I think the 'heart's bitter call' should be 'hospital call'. Also, 'house I built from love' should be 'house I built from logs'. Finally, 'a raven-headed lady all' should be 'a raven and a lady haunt.' This is simply my best guess from having heard this track many many times this afternoon.

Maybe this chord is only made by the bass, but it sounds much better if you put a Dm7 at the start of the chorus (after the F, before the Eb)
