I used this performance for guidance - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xH8KG09xYsQ

I grabbed these lyrics from www.joshritter.com and in the video the second chorus 
he sings "Tell her I was barely there" and I've left the original "Tell her I was 
on the move" but find myself using the video lyrics often.

On the extra Gsus4 he'll sometimes remove his first finger for a measure and the 
outro might not be the chords I have listed. 

Good luck and enjoy.

        cosmos and wild rose bud
Em                      Dm
        And thunder the unknowns
Em                         Dm
        In the phosphorous white glow
F                      C/G          Gsus4
        Of saber-tooth bones in the dusk

Gsus4

F                             C/G       Em             Am

        Whatever is hunting
            Gsus4
        For me...

*Note the last C/G -> Gsus4 on the outro might not be what he plays in the video 
and it could be a C (032013) -> G thing (320013).
