   The initial transcription was done by Patrick M Ryan and with out his help 
would not be possible. I made some changes in the chords and those I could not 
name are in Tab form. I think this is pretty darn accurate. This is hoping you 
already know the song. ;) If any one has any suggestion please contact Pat or myself:

G G  C C C
A hot and windy August afternoon
                                G G G C C CB C D
Has the trees in constant motion
E      E               A
With a flash of silver leaves
           E              A
As they're rocking in the breeze

riff [A] (twice)
    A                    D  
The boy lies in the grass with one blade
A                      D 
Stuck between his teeth
  A                       D
A vague sensation quickens
       A                     D
In his young and restless heart
      G                        C   
And a bright and nameless vision
        G                C 
Has him longing to depart

{Riff A}

F F F F F G   G G G G F
You move me --
You move me --
With your buildings and your eyes
Autumn woods and winter skies
You move me --
You move me --
Open sea and city lights
Busy streets and dizzy heights
ou call me --
ou call me --                                                                    
    G                       C
The fawn-eyed girl with sun-browned legs
G                 C
Dances on the edge of his dream
        E                      A
And her voice rings in his ears
         E                  A
Like the music of the spheres

    A                      D                                                   
The boy lies in the grass, unmoving
A                 D
Staring at the sky
    A                     D
His mother starts to call him
     A                   D
As a hawk goes soaring by
    G                  C    
The boy pulls down his baseball cap
    G                C
And covers up his eyes
{Riff A}                                           Hold G form like this:
                                     Am    G       *move pinky off chord
 Am Am  Am Am  G G * *               5-----3------------3------------
 Am Am  Am Am  G G * *               5-----3------------3------------
Too many hands on my time            7-----5-----*------3------------
Too many feelings                    7-----5------------5------------
Too many things on my mind           5-----3------------3------------

When I leave I don't know
What I'm hoping to find
When I leave I don't know
What I'm leaving behind...

[impossible solo]  ;-)

 It's better to make up your own solo anyway.  :)

I don't think that Alex plays just regular chords in this, doesn't sound right, please help!
