Gibbard plays the song as I've transcribed here- in G with no capo.  Farrar plays it in 
with the capo on the 5th fret.  To play the Farrar part just pop the capo on the 5th 
and transpose the chords to D.  Fun for you and a friend!

Intro: Open strumming in G

G
Up the Hudson Valley across NY State
     C
To Chicago then the plains
         D
All so easy and dream like
                  C               G
Crashing the salt flat day break
I hear "I'll take you home again Kathleen"
         C
Said in fogwinds out there that blow
               D
Across the rooftops of eerie old hangover
                G
San Francisco

Chorus 2X
                           D
Now I'm transcontinental
                Am
3000 miles from my home
                            C
I'm on the California Zephyr
                         G
Watching America roll by

                   G
I've hit the end of the trail
                                                C
Can't even drag my body I've been driven mad
For three years
D
Too much fame keeps a body busy
         C                             G
And a mind full of white port tears
Terrified by that sad song
                                C
Across rooftops mingled with the lachrymose cries
         D
Of the Salvation Army meeting on the corner
                                          G
Saying Satan is the cause of it all

Chorus 2X
                           D
Now I'm transcontinental
                Am
3000 miles from my home
                            C
I'm on the California Zephyr
                         G
Watching America roll by
Terrified by that sad song
                                C
Across rooftops mingled with the lachrymose cries
         D
Of the Salvation Army meeting on the corner
                                          G
Saying Satan is the cause of it all

Chorus 2X
                           D
Now I'm transcontinental
                Am
3000 miles from my home
                            C
I'm on the California Zephyr
                         G
Watching America roll by
