This is a great song, interesting chord changes.
I've written out exactly how I play it, thus the seemingly staggering list of chords --
while there are a lot of different ones, some are repeats of the same chords on 
parts of the neck.
I'm just trying to be helpful by writing them all out, in the order they appear.

D                        G(open)
Your eyelids are made of lead
F#7                    Bm
   You can't keep them up
          C     G(barre)
Cause its sleepytime
    F1        Eb           Bb/D      C7
And that's no crime in the western world
Cause when the sun goes down
                       Eb
You’re bound to follow through
                      Bb/D
Sleeping through the afternoon
  F2         Eb      Bb/D     C7
I just can't seem to leave my room
        Eb                 Bb/D
Waiting for the moon and a love so true
           C7
It's gonna see me through
    Eb                     Bb1
You know it's gonna see me through

D    G(open)    F#7    Bm    C
G(barre)   F1      Eb    Bb/D
C7
         Cause when the sun goes down
                               Eb
I'm gonna make like a tree and bloom
                     Bb/D
Sleeping through the afternoon
  F2         Eb      Bb/D      C7
I just can’t seem to leave my room
        Eb                 Bb/D
Waiting for the moon and a love so true
           C7
It’s gonna see me through
    Eb                     Bb1
You know it’s gonna see me through

(Even though the last part ends on Bb and this part starts on Bb,
I change from Bb1 to Bb2 to get closer to the lower F,
there's a pause anyway, might as well.)

Bb2
Drifting down the sleepy river
F1
Waking like a child
C                         G barre
Never gonna know what the spirit said
           Bb2              F1
Unless you drift down for a while
Eb                        Bb/D               C7
Never gonna know what the wind is whispering now
Eb                         Bb/D              C7
Never gonna know unless you leave this world somehow
           Eb               Bb1
Unless you leave this world somehow

Bb1              A(barre)
I woke up on the street
        E(barre)          Ab
So apprehensive, feeling weak
         C#               F#
And as I finally tried to speak
                  G(open)       D       A(open)
Twelve birds flew straightways from my mouth

          Bb1            A(barre)
I circled high above the sky
         E(barre)          Ab
Began to cry with piercing sounds
         C#             F#
A crowd gathered on the ground
             G(open)   D             A(open)
All speaking strangely through their teeth

         Bb1           A(barre)
I felt alone and in my creep
             E(barre)      Ab
I spoke once more into the wind
           C#                   F#
A storm of birds contained therein
         E(open)
Began to spin, to spin

Bb1   A(barre)   E(barre)  Ab
C#    F#      E(open)

D                        G(open)
Your eyelids are made of lead
F#7                    Bm
   You can't keep them up
          C     G(barre)
Cause its sleepytime
    F1        Eb           Bb/D      C7
And that's no crime in the western world
Cause when the sun goes down
                       Eb
You’re bound to follow through
                      Bb/D
Sleeping through the afternoon
  F2         Eb      Bb/D     C7
I just can't seem to leave my room
        Eb                 Bb/D
Waiting for the moon and a love so true
           C7
It's gonna see me through
    Eb                     Bb1
You know it's gonna see me through

Outro:   D7    G barre     F1       C     Eb    Bb1
