Wayne Watson - Watercolor Ponies chords

Watercolour Ponies
Wayne Watson

*The Am9 and Fmmaj7/E should be played as follows to emulate Wayne's concert version of 
this song:

Am9
E:0
B:0
G:5
D:5
A:0
E:x

Fmmaj7/E
E:0
B:6
G:5
D:6
A:x
E:0

I think this is the exact way he plays these two chords in concerts, not on the original 
album.  He finishes the song with a progression that sounds a lot like "Wishing You 
Were Here" by Chicago and adds these two chords:

B11/E
E:0
B:4
G:4
D:4
A:0
E:x

A#maj13/A
E:0
B:3
G:3
D:3
A:0
E:x

(Capo 4)

Am9  Fmmaj7/E  Am9  Fmmaj7/E

          Am9            FmMaj7/E
There are watercolour ponies
        Am9         Gm  C
On my refrigerator door
       F         Em         Bm7           E7      Am9  Fmmaj7/E
In the shape of something I don't really recognize
             Am9               Fmmaj7/E
Brushed with careful little fingers
        Am9             Gm  C
And put proudly on display
     F      Em     Bm7  E7      Am9  Fmmaj7/E
A reminder to us all of how time flies
         Am9                  Fmmaj7/E
Seems an endless mound of laundry
      Am9                  Gm  C
And a stairway laced with toys
        F         Em    Bm7   E7       Am9  Fmmaj7/E
Gives a blow by blow reminder of the war
        Am9                    Fmmaj7/E
That we fight for their well-being
          Am9            Gm    C
For their greater understanding
      F      Em   Bm7         E7    A
To impart a holy reverence for the Lord
    A                   E
But baby, what will we do
        F#m                   C#m
When it comes back to me and you
     D              A/C#     Bm7         E      A   E
They look a little less like little ones every day
       A                          E
Oh the pleasure of watchin' the children growin'
   F#m                  C#m
Is mixed with a bitter cup
               D      A/C#  Bm7
Of knowin' the watercolour ponies
      E             A
Will one day ride away
        Fmaj7       G      Fmaj7  G
And the vision can get so narrow
       C                          G - C
As you view through your tiny world
           Gsus                                G - C  G - C
And little victories can go by with no applause
           Am
But in the greater evaluation
        Em
As they fly from your nest of love
         F              Em       Bm7         E7  Esus  E  Esus  E
May they mount up with wings as eagles for His cause
               A                   E
Still I wonder baby, what will we do
         F#m                  C#m
When it comes back to me and you
     D              A/C#      Bm7        E7     A  E
They look a little less like little ones every day
       A                          E
Oh the pleasure of watchin' the children growin'
   F#m                  C#m
Is mixed with a bitter cup
                D     A/C#  Bm7
Of knowin' the watercolour ponies
      E
Will one day
Bm7     E      Am9   [ch]B11/A[/ch]
One day ride away
       Am9  [ch]B11/E[/ch]
Ride Away
