Apartment Story Chords

   
The National - Apartment Story

I'm not 100% sure of all the chord names. 
I've watch this a few times on acoustic on youtube. 
Its not 100% accurate with the way he plays it but these shapes and chords work perfect. 
For the B and Em in the chorus he plays it closer to the head of the guitar but 
it works fine this way too.

Standard tuning - No Capo.
