I think the song is originally played without a capo starting on an A# in stead of a G - 
it is, however, easier to play this way:

Ph to Em7 on the Em in the end of each verse.

Capo 3rd

G Am G CThere was a man came to our town
C D EmHe wore a suit of red
G Am G C He memorized with secret eyes
G D Em DThat he hid away in his head
C D G EmHe had a scar upon his head
C G DWhere there used to be a crown
G Am G CBut he sold his robes at the five and ten
G D Em DAnd lived on the edge of town
G Am G CThat fall he showed us a magic leaf
C D EmThat he could change to snow
G Am G C He bought it partly with his grief
G D Em DAnd partly with his soul
C D G EmHe scattered seeds in the alley way
C G DHe never seemed to rest
G Am G CAnd when you went to ask him why
G D Em DAll he ever said was yes
G Am G CHe made a swan from waving grass
C D EmBeside a crystal shore
G Am G C And a sunrise spun from broken glass
G D Em DAnd many things wondrous more
C D G EmBut then his hands began to burn
C G DWhen he heard the news from the war
G Am G CWhen we cannot find each other he said
Am D Em DThen we can't run away any more
G Am G CNext day with tears along his face
C D EmHe passed us on the hill
G Am G C No one thought to ask him to stay
G D Em DAnd he knows that we never will
G Am G CThere was a man came to our town
C D EmHe wore a suit of red
G Am G CHe memorized with secret eyes
G D Em DThat he hid away in our head
Em
