Melodica Notes: Directly from Zach via FRs site.

First part:

Bb Eb D F G
F G F Eb

The harmony part starts and ends the same, but diverges in between:

Bb Bb D C


Verse I

C                        
Anne, lets die in some dim town
   G
My brown eyes wait to weigh us down
    Am
The candles round the tub will drown
Dm           Dm7
In our after-noons

C
Music from our evening parlor
G
Darker than the autumn hour
  Am
I gave my child twenty dollars
    Dm             Dm7
For tearing at our moons

-banjo solo-


Verse II


C
Dark damp men muddied our house
G
In my dreams to bleed your blouse
  Am 
I smiled from my sleep to douse
    Dm             Dm7
The horror of this hour


C
Our boy on dark hills blurry crawling
G
His rain-glazed shaking porches falling
    Am
The homes of all his friends just sprawling
Dm             Dm7
Withering like flowers


Verse III


C
Anne, Ive loved you from a boy
   G
No other autumn could destroy
    Am
The town our winds fused to enjoy
Dm              Dm7
Whispering dark farmlands


C
Tearing moons, these moons are tearing
G
Swearing terror inside their daring
Am
Crumbling prayers, dark autumns faring
Dm                  Dm7
Straight out of our hands



End with a couple more runs through the chords
