(I've no idea how Mary Chapin Carpenter plays this song.  In concert, it
 looked like she was playing with a capo on the 7th fret.  Since the song
 is in B, that would mean she was playing the chords in E.  The only way I
 can picture that is if she was using chords like x46600 for C#m, a la "The
 End of My Pirate Days."  I do know for sure that she wasn't using nice,
 normal chords.  Maybe her capo was at 6 or 9, or maybe she had her guitar
 tuned funny.  If anyone finds out, please let me know.)
(I'm going to write these chords down in the key of G, since I know that's
 where John Jennings played them, with a capo on the 4th fret.)

n.c.
In this world there's a whole lot of trouble, baby
n.c.
In this world there's a whole lot of pain
n.c.
In this world there's a whole lot of trouble
n.c.
But a whole lot of ground to gain
n.c.
Why take when you could be giving, why watch as the world goes by
n.c.
It's a hard enough life to be living, why walk when you can fly

In this world there's a whole lot of cold

In this world there's a whole lot of blame
D       G              C          C
In this world you've a soul for a compass
      Em          Em      C     C
And a heart for a pair of wings

There's a star on the far horizon, rising bright in an azure sky
        D           G                C      C   Em        Em      C    C
For the rest of the time that you're given, why walk when you can fly
