This song is is in the key of C, but Smith tunes down a step on his guitar, so he fingers a D t play a C.  
will show the actual chord and sound first, but in () is the tuned down chord Smith actually plays.

Fm(Gm)  C(D)  Ab(Bb)  Bb add9(C add9)  Am(Bm)  D7(E7)  G(A)

      Fm(Gm)      C(D)
We're passengers aboard the train
Ab(Bb)        Bb add9(C add9)
Silent little lambs amidst the pain
Am(Bm)    D7(E7)       G(A)
That's no longer good enough
    Fm(Gm)            C(D)
And when it's time to speak our faith
   Ab(Bb)         Bb add9(C add9)
We use a language no one can explain
Am(Bm)    D7(E7)       G(A)
That's no longer good enough
    E7(F#7)          F(G)
And God knows it's a shame
'Cause if we look to pass the blame
       C(D)                          Gsus4(Asus4)   G(A)
We are not the worthy bearers of His name

For the world to know the truth
There can be no greater proof
        Bb add9(C add9) F(G)
Than to live the life,  live the life
There's no love that's quite as pure
There's no pain we can't endure
      Bb add9(C add9) F(G)
If we live the life,  live the life
     Dm(Em)           Bb add9(C add9)
Be a light for all to see
    Dm(Em)                         C(D)
For every act of love will set you free

There's something beautiful and bold
The power of a million human souls
Come together as one
And each, in turn, goes out to lead
Another by His word, His love, His deed
Now the circle is done
It all comes back to one
For it is He and He alone
Who has lived the only perfect life we've known

If you tuned down to the D formation, move everything up 2 frets
