Chords
Transpose
This is what it sounds like on the piano; I guess you could play
it on anything although I wouldn't want to attempt it myself! 
Transpose it down 1 step though and it's not too bad.

E B C#M G#M EOlder brother, restless soul, lie down
E B C#M G#M ELie for a while with your ear against the earth

E B C#M G#M ESay "your hair is long but not long enough to reach
Bhome to me
G#M but your beard
Bsomeday might be."
G#M E BAnd she'll wake up in a cold sweat on the floor
