I think the song is originally played without a capo starting on an A# in stead of a G - 
it is, however, easier to play this way:

Ph to Em7 on the Em in the end of each verse.

Capo 3rd

      F     Dm       F      F
There was a man came to our town
F         G       Am
He wore a suit of red
F        Dm        F      F
 He memorized with secret eyes
        F    G          Am    G
That he hid away in his head

   F      G     F       Am
He had a scar upon his head
             F      F     G
Where there used to be a crown
        F        Dm          F         F
But he sold his robes at the five and ten
     F           G       Am      G
And lived on the edge of town

     F        Dm         F      F
That fall he showed us a magic leaf
F              G        Am
That he could change to snow
F             Dm     F        F
 He bought it partly with his grief
     F     G        Am    G
And partly with his soul

    F         G            F    Am
He scattered seeds in the alley way
    F     F         G
He never seemed to rest
    F        Dm      F        F
And when you went to ask him why
        F    G       Am     G
All he ever said was yes

   F       Dm        F      F
He made a swan from waving grass
F         G       Am
Beside a crystal shore
F         Dm             F       F
 And a sunrise spun from broken glass
    F           G        Am      G
And many things wondrous more

     F        G       F     Am
But then his hands began to burn
         F         F            G
When he heard the news from the war
         F      Dm        F       F
When we cannot find each other he said
         Dm         G       Am   G
Then we can't run away any more

      F        Dm     F        F
Next day with tears along his face
 F           G      Am
He passed us on the hill
F         Dm       F           F
 No one thought to ask him to stay
       F          G        Am     G
And he knows that we never will

      F     Dm       F      F
There was a man came to our town
F         G       Am
He wore a suit of red
F       Dm        F      F
He memorized with secret eyes
        F    G          Am    G
That he hid away in our head

Am
