This is the solo acoustic version of the Opening Act of Spring.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-xycD0xxG8  see here.

For the studio acoustic version, (and I believe the full band version)  you'll want a capo on 2nd fret.

I hope it's clear enough, it's my first tab

      G                 C/G                    G
Oh the birds are ringing in the opening act of spring
           Em                  Am                      C/G-D-G 
And I have fallen down and I'm so much worse than I have ever been
       G               C/G                                      G
Oh the season's acting strange and I know that something has to change
         Em                 Am                      C/G-D-G
But there is no path I can choose that will not bring somebody pain

[chorus]

D/F# D/E  D/F#   G          Am                G                 D/F#
Oh   oh   oh-oh  oh Please forgive me for the things that I must do
D/F# D/E  D/F#   G          Am                G                 D/F# 
Oh   oh   oh-oh  oh I have hurt so many people it was never my intention to hurt you

[verse]
       G                    C/G                            G
Oh the clouds have gathered thick and in my stomach I feel sick
           Em                 Am                 C/G-D-G    
And I have all this drive and no idea what I should do with  it
    G                   C/G                           G         
But they say there is a calm after the passing of the storm
         Em             Am                         C/G-D-G        
So I can dream of going back outside when the rain and thunder's done

[chorus]

D/F# D/E  D/F#   G          Am                G                 D/F#
Oh   oh   oh-oh  oh Please forgive me for the things that I must do
D/F# D/E  D/F#   G          Am                G                 D/F# 
Oh   oh   oh-oh  oh I have hurt so many people it was never my intention to hurt you

[bridge]
        G                                D
And you know the old folks say, they can tell which way the rivers flowing
Am                                   C/G
Tell which way the wind is blow—ing, by watching careful for the...
G                              Am
Signs among the little things: The barking dogs, the birds on wing 
    G                       D    
And I am deaf and blind and I can't say if I can change
Am                                      C/G
the patterns that have caused you pain, for I was raised in suburbs 
G                               Am
Sheltered from the sun and rain far away from subtle season's change

   G           C/G                           G
Oh baby I will read about the buzzing of the bees
      Em                       Am                            C/G-D-G  
About the grass and snakes and spawning lakes and the different types of trees
    G             C/G                                  G
And I will find a way that leads from cruel April into May
Em                 Am                      C/G-D-G
And someday soon it will be June and you'll decide to stay

[chorus]

D/F# D/E  D/F#   G          Am                G                 D/F#
Oh   oh   oh-oh  oh please forgive me for the things that I have done
D/F# D/E  D/F#   G          Am        G                 
Oh   oh   oh-oh  oh I will carry your umbrella in the summer
                            D/F#
And I'll shade you from the sun

You're right, I didn't even think of that! I was just going from the one video. I'll add that to the description.
