As far as I can tell JD only plays open chords; I've mostly just called them by the basic chord name instead of properly naming them. In order of appearance:

E: 079900
A: 0(12)(14)(14)00 or 0(12)(14)(14)(14)0
B: 799800
A2: 577600
D: 057700
C: 035500
B2: 024400

When playing E and A (really E5 and Asus2), JD sometimes does little riffs that alternate between E5 and E5maj7 (079800), and Asus2 and a weird chord (0(12)(13)(14)00).

Intro: E A E (or just E, he does it both ways)

E
snow built up around the smokehouse,
the sun shone on the snow,
                        A
and the sun's rays were blistering
           E
against my eyes.
the long night was well on its way
so i made good use of what was left of the daylight,
A
walking down toward the main street,
E
coming back home again.

             B
and sleeping up (?), i sang a short song about you
      A2
and i knew every word of that song was true.
      E            B
well, almost every word.

E A (x2)
E

E
ice froze the green stems on the daffodils.
ice formed carrots on my windowsill
          A
and i was blistering,
E
blazing away.

E D C B2

           E
and it had always been my tendency to let things slide
but i went to the window with my eyes open wide
             A
and you were taking on perspective,
E
coming toward the door.
              B
you want some more?
              A2
i've got some more for you.
         E                        B
i've got just what you're looking for.

E A (x2)
