The other tab is a half-step too high, and had a few chord changes out of place or lacking. 
You could play this with a Capo on 2: 
B = A shape
F# = E shape
E = D shape
G#m = F#m shape
	   B							       F#
That means no where I come from. I am cold, out waiting for the day to come. 
	  B				  B	   F#           E
I chew my lips, oh and I scratch my nose, feels so good to be a rose. 

Oh don't, don't you lift me up like I'm that shy, no no no no no, 
just give it up – 
  	     E 		F#	   B
There are bats all dissolving in a row
 	 E		F#		G#m 
into the wishy-washy dark that cannot let go.
I cannot let go, so I thank the lord, and I thank his sword! 
 	   F#     	               G#m
'tho it be mincing up the morning, slightly bored. 
   B	   	   E	          B	                 E
O, morning without warning like a hole,  and I watch you go.

  		    B			F#	     E
There are some mornings when the sky looks like a road.
 		     B			F#	     E 
There are some dragons who were built to have and hold.
 		B		     F#		       E 
And some machines are dropped from great heights lovingly. 
         B		   E	        B	  F#             E
and some bellies ache with many bumblebees.  (and they sting so terribly). 

I do as I please.  Now I'm on my knees. 
 		               F#       G#m
Your skin is something that I stir into my tea. 
         E	                  G#m
And I am watching you and you are starry, starry, starry
		 B	     F#	       E 
and I'm tumbling down, and I check a frown.
It's why I love this town. Well, just look around: 
to see me serenaded hourly!  celebrated sourly! 
 E		   F#		         B
dedicated dourly; waltzing with the open sea –
F#  		E		  F#	           G#m 
clam, crab, cockle, cowrie : will you just look at me?
B	D	B	F#	E  x3     (3rd time)  F#  B
Oh…						      Hmm

there is an E missing from the beginning of "tho it be mincing up the morning" and an F# in between the B and E with "and i watch you go"

with some machines are dropped from great heights lovingly it is B F# G#m
and at the end that D is supposed to be an E. Joanna is my dream woman
this are simmple corrections that most people can figure out themselves but if not this might help.

Yeah, I was going to mention the same corrections. Sounds great with capo on 2nd fret and arpeggio, though.
