Notes: Words in brackets are what I hear her actually singing as opposed to
       how she's presented the written lyrics.

       Here are the box annoted chords in the first position.

                            F (barred)
             Am             I              C              G
           E O---+---+---+  +-X-+---+---+  O---+---+---+  +---+---+-X-+
           B +-X-+---+---+  +-X-+---+---+  +-X-+---+---+  O---+---+---+
           G +---+-X-+---+  +-X-+-X-+---+  O---+---+---+  O---+---+---+
           D +---+-X-+---+  +-X-+---+-X-+  +---+-X-+---+  O---+---+---+
           A O---+---+---+  +-X-+---+-X-+  +---+---+-X-+  +---+-X-+---+
           E O---+---+---+  +-X-+---+---+  O---+---+---+  +---+---+-X-+

       Here are the exact same chords but played closer to how I
       think Thea's playing them, barred at the I'st, III'rd, and
       V'th positions.

             Am             F              C              G
             V              I              III            III
           E +-X-+---+---+  +-X-+---+---+  X---+---+---+  X---+---+---+
           B +-X-+---+---+  +-X-+---+---+  X---+---+-X-+  X---+---+---+
           G +-X-+---+---+  +-X-+-X-+---+  X---+---+-X-+  X---+-X-+---+
           D +-X-+---+-X-+  +-X-+---+-X-+  X---+---+-X-+  X---+---+-X-+
           A +-X-+---+-X-+  +-X-+---+-X-+  X---+---+---+  X---+---+-X-+
           E +-X-+---+---+  +-X-+---+---+  X---+---+---+  X---+---+---+


    Am  F  C  G (2 times)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/thea_gilmore/avalanche_crd.html ]
            Am
    Three PM
              F
    Blue as a roadsign
                        C
    With a bag and some cheap wine
        G
    The suns in my eyes
      Am
    Between
                        F
    The smoke trails of aircraft
                   C
    The kite tails and light shafts
              G
    There's a language in the sky
              Am
    There are bones
                              F
    Living [Hiding] under the viaduct
                                    C
    Sleeping [Sweeping] down by the railway line
           G
    Making wagers with the day
              Am
    There's a rumour
               F
    Dirty as a chimney stack
             C
    Quiet as roadkill
           G
    On the northbound carriageway
        F
    And who's gonna raise a hand
                                      G
    When all we were taught to do was dance
    F
    Who'll be able to stand after this avalanche

    Am  F  C  G (2 times)

              Am
    Well they sold you
              F
    Back your outrage
                     C
    In a neat little shrink-wrap
          G
    And a beautiful face
            Am
    And you think
                           F
    That you've found your purpose
                                    C
    While they've been trailing the breadcrumbs
         G
    Of a watertight case
              Am
    So you're shouting
                        F
    But you're shouting softly
                  C
    So no-one can hear you
                G
    And get the wrong idea
          Am
    But behind
                           F
    The closing eye of the tabloids
               C
    We will be waiting
        G
    And we'll say it clear
        F
    Cos who's gonna raise a hand
                                      G
    When all we were taught to do was dance
    F
    Who'll be able to stand after this avalanche

    Am  F  C  G (2 times)

           Am
    Three PM
              F
    Blue as a roadsign
                        C
    With a bag and some cheap wine
        G
    The suns in my eyes
      Am
    Between
                        F
    The smoke trails of aircraft
                       C
    The kite tails and light shafts
              G
    There's a language in the sky

    Am  F  C
              G
    There's a language in the sky
    Am  F  C
              G
    There's a language in the sky
