I tried to figure out the cords of this great song and I hope I did a good job. This is 
meant for the acoustic version of the song on the "Livebirds" album made with Jon Snodgrass.
It's better if you listen to the song to see how it goes.
It's my first tab so please be gentle.

Here's a song to all my friends
  F           G
I know they'd like
I remember every drunken
F                G
Night at the old dive
Driving the ol'wreck
                  F        G
Trying to make it home somehow
One more pit stop at our favorite
F        G
Watering hole

C                      Am
The ghost of christmas past
F                 G
Swallowed all our pride
C                Am
We'd open up our story books
    F              G
And water down the eyes
Our demons raised their
glasses singing
 F           G
"I propose a toast to all my friends"
C        Am           F
Who's buying the next round...

Cup half empty cup half full
F                G
Perspectives and beers
They weren't failure
                  F              G
Just the regulars of my favorite year
They come and go
Paying their toll
     F       G
Decaying old unsound minds
    F                 G
The ghost of cristmas failure

        C               Am
Dancing to the click of time
    F          G
The beating of defeat
C              Am
Shaking in his hands
F             G
A lifetime of retreat
C                    Am
And his regrets were ours
F                  G
A time to say good-bye to all my friends
I've been waiting so
F       G
long... for you to call
My old friend

Solo (C F G - just like the verses)

C  Am     F           G      C
To all my friends, to all my friends
   Am     F           G      C
To all my friends, to all my friends
