This song is played with a capo 3.
If you do not have a capo, up it 3 half steps.
This is pretty accurate (about 90%), but any corrections are welcome.
The chords in the passage part repeat all over the song, between the other parts.

Verse 1:
Bm D*Did you hear of the city on the hill?
C Em7Said one old man to the other
Bm D*It once shined bright and it would be shining still
C Em7But they all started turning on each other
Verse 2:
Bm D*You see, the poets thought the dancers were shallow
C Em7And the soldiers thought the poets were weak
Bm D*And the elders saw the young ones as foolish
C Em7And the rich man never heard the poor man speak
Chorus:
GAnd one by one
DThey ran away
CWith their made up minds
Em7To leave it all behind
G DAnd the light began to fade
CIn the city on the hill
CThe city on the hill
Verse 3:
Bm D*Each one thought that they knew better
C Em7That they were different by design
Bm D*Instead of standing strong together
C Em7They let their differences divide
Chorus:
GAnd one by one
DThey ran away
CWith their made up minds
Em7To leave it all behind
G DAnd the light began to fade
CIn the city on the hill
CThe city on the hill
Passage:
Bm D* C Em7 And the world is searching still
Bm D* C Bridge:
GBut it was the rhythm of the dancers
That gave the poets life
DIt was the spirit of the poets
CThat gave the soldiers strength to fight
GIt was the fire of the young ones
BmIt was the wisdom of the old
CIt was the story of the poor man
That needed to be told Ending:
Bm D* C Come home
Em7And the Father's calling still
Bm D* C Come home
Em7To the city on the hill
Bm D* C Come home
