The first tuning is the original one. They use it for breaking the chords in the intro, 
first verse and some other parts of the song (into the picking pattern which is btw a little tricky). 
So, who wants to play the song like the band does, first tuning and the set of chords are 
the right ones (see for yourselves in the video), and more fun to play. But, who doesn’t want to 
change the tuning, the standard tuning is just fine and sounds the same.

D   G     D   G     

D            G      D          G
   I wish I met you, further along
    D          G           D             G
   Gave you my older heart, still and strong
          Bm              G                D
   But I wouldn't have a fire like I do today
G                 D                 
   Oooh it burns for you babe

   A              Bm                           G
   Oooh, you got nothing on my tendency to be led astray
   A                 Bm         D                G
   Oooh, it took a blindside hit to show me the right of way

              Bm        G             D
   When your footsteps conquer the streets
             Bm           G             D
   From your eyes to the soles of your feet
           Bm       G            D A Bm 
   May my body and heart remain wi____ld
       G      A    D         G     
   For I'm a wandering child

D   G     D   G     D   G

D                  G           D            G
   I could keep an arms length, so I don't fall
D           G                        D                G
   I never learned to punch with my back against the wall
       Bm  G               D   G     
   Oh no,  I gotta let it go

D               G      D            G
   And I got a feeling, deep in my bones
D                G                    D              G
   I can't sit still when there's a space up in the road
              Bm         G               D
   There's a fire coming on you in your lane
G          D
   And it burns for you babe

   A              Bm                           G
   Oooh, you got nothing on my tendency to be led astray
   A                 Bm         D                G
   Oooh, it took a blindside hit to show me the right of way

              Bm        G             D
   When your footsteps conquer the streets
             Bm           G             D
   From your eyes to the soles of your feet
           Bm       G            D A Bm 
   May my body and heart remain wi____ld
       G      A    D         G     
   For I'm a wandering child

D   G     D   G     D   G

                  D       G
   And I hope to God the time ain't wrong
                  D       G
   And I hope to God the time ain't wrong
            Bm              G                 D   G
   Cause I can't be hanging on like this for long

                  D       G
   And I hope to God the time ain't wrong
                  D       G
   And I hope to God the time ain't wrong
            Bm              G                 D   G
   Cause I can't be hanging on like this for long

                  D       G
   And I hope to God the time ain't wrong
                  D       G
   And I hope to God the time ain't wrong
            Bm              G                 D   G
   Cause I can't be hanging on like this for long
            Bm              G                 D   
   Cause I can't be hanging on like this for long

And for those who want to try breaking the chords, a little help - my attempt 
on the intro and beginning of the verse (didn’t have time for the whole thing):
                                          D           G
d|----|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|

D|----|-0-----0---------0-----0---------|-0-----0---------0-----0---------|

                                        |----------    repeat   ----------|
