This is pretty easy if you want to play it in open G tuning (DADGAD), since the 
song is based around D5 If you want to play it in normal tuning you can use the following chords:
D5: xx023x / x577xx
G: 320033
F#m: 244222
F: 133211

The chords for the chorus are: D5 / G / D5 / F#m / D5 / F

If you play it in open G you can do the following:

    D5      G       D5      F#m     D5       F      D5            

*If you want you can leave the two top strings open all the time.

With a hammer and nails and a fear of failure we
are building a shed

Between here and heaven between the wait and the
wedding for as long as we both shall be dead
to the world beyond the boys and the girls trying
to keep us calm

We can practice our lines 'til we're deaf and blind
to ourselves to each other where it's

G        D5     F#m        D5     F        D5
Fall not winter spring not summer cool not cold

G                  D5          F#m    D5
And it's warm not hot have we   all   forgotten that

       F            D5
we're      getting old

With an arrow and bow and some seeds left to sow
we are staking our claim
On ground so fertile we forget who we've hurt along
the way and reach out for a strange hand
to hold someone strong but not bold enough to
tear down the wall
'Cause we're not lost enough to find the stars aren't
crossed why align them why fall hard
not soft into
Fall not winter spring not summer cool not cold
Where it's warm not hot have we all forgotten that
we're getting old
