F                 Dm
Saw an eagle on a pole,
F                 Dm
I think it was an eagle.
F            Am     D#             Dm
Watched its' shadow fly 'cross the cement.
F                    Dm
And I woke up in the snow,
F                              Dm
all the trees, and crowds, and people.
F            Am        D#              C
No shirt, no shoes, no idea where they went.

F                        Dm
I followed the fenceline thin,
F                     Dm
back where the yard begins
F         Am        D#            C
My woman, she stood crying like a man.
      Am#            C
Said, where have you been?
Am#            C
Where have you been?
F             Am        D#              Dm
I thought you said that all of that was done.
F        Am   D#
El Cielo es azul,
              Am#         F
Just don't go telling everyone

F                        Dm
Thought the kettle was a train.
F                          Dm
Thought that Monday was a doorframe.
F        Am      D#             Dm
Tried so hard to finally settle down.
F                      Dm
Heard the fire pop and snap.
F                 Dm
Like a tack piano rag.
F       Am        D#            C
I never could get used to happy sounds.

F                          Dm
Yeah, I hope the world's exposed.
F                     Dm
A cruel and elaborate hoax.
F            Am    D#             C
It convinces me to walk without a cane.

    Am#          C
But what can you do?
Am#                 C
Child, what can you do?
F        Am         D#              Dm
I always heard that what is done is done.
F        Am   D#
El Cielo es azul,
              Am#          F
Just don't go telling everyone

F                   Dm
The past don't ever quit.
F                      Dm
There's boxes in the attic.
F    Am        D#        Dm
Baby shoes and taxidermy dream.
F                      Dm
While the ashes of the dead, 
F                Dm
like a dandelion head,
F           Am       D#               C
explode and then are scattered by the breeze.
F                     Dm
We're such a long way back,
F                     Dm
to all the fun that we had.
F            Am   D#               C
When nothing ever seemed to bother me.
Am#              C
But what can you do?
Am#                   C
Brother, what can you do?
F     Am       D#                     Dm
Sleep with the stars, and toil in the sun.
F  Am       D#
El Cielo es azul,
               Am#        F
Just don't go telling everyone
F  Am       D#
El Cielo es azul,
               Am#        F
Just don't go telling everyone

it sounds better to play an Adim chord instead of the D# you suggested

Adim

e| |---|---|---|---|---|
B| |-x-|---|---|---|---|
G| |---|-x-|---|---|---|
D| |-x-|---|---|---|---|
A|x|---|---|---|---|---|
E|x|---|---|---|---|---|

Also, for the intro, when it's just guitar, try playing a

Fmaj7
e| |---|---|---|---|---|
B| |-x-|---|---|---|---|
G| |---|-x-|---|---|---|
D| |---|---|-x-|---|---|
A|x|---|---|---|---|---|
E|x|---|---|---|---|---|

chord then switch to an ordinary F chord once the instruments come back in

Sounds great :)

It's wrong. In quite a few places. At least you're better than the other version. I'm making a guitar pro of the entire song with all the guitars, bass, etc.

Btw, the chord is Asus2/Eb

e|-0-|
b|-0-|
G|-2-|
D|-1-|

Quite an odd choice of chord, but resolves to Dm/C7/Bbm nicely.

Oh yeah, and it's Bbm not A#m.
