Tuning: Standard

Here's a version with what I think are the words he sings in the
middle of the song. 

INTRO:  G - - - | - - D  (x4)

VERSE 1:
(D)    G
In the days when we were swinging from the trees
 CG
I was a monkey stealing honey from a swarm of bees
G
I could taste, I could taste you even then
      CG
And I would chase you down the wind 

CHORUS      
Em    Am            G            D
  You could go there if you please, wild honey
Em           Am               G        D
  And if you go there, go with me, wild honey

INTRO progression x2

VERSE 2:
      G
Did I know you? Did I know you even then?
           C                            G
Before the clocks kept time, before the world was made 
G
From the cruel sun. 
            C                    G
You were my shelter, you were my shelter and my shade 

CHORUS:
Em       Am               G        D
  If you go there go with me, wild honey
Em        Am               G            D
  You can do just what you please, wild honey
Em           Am             G            D
  Yeah, just blowing in the breeze, Wild honey
Em    Am    G D   G
Wild, wild, wild 

INTRO progression x2

VERSE 3:
          G
I'm still standing, I'm still standing where you left me
              C                            G
Are you still growing wild with everything tame around you? 
           G
I send you flowers, cut flowers for your hall
            C                            G
I know your garden is full, but is there sweetness at all

BRIDGE:
Em        C     C C/B Am                 C    G G/F
  What is soul?         Love me, give me soul

CHORUS:
Em       Am            G        D
  If you go there with me, Wild honey
Em          Am               G            D
  Won't you take me, take me please, Wild honey
Em      Am                   G           D
  Yeah, swinging through the trees, Wild honey
Em      Am    G D   G (Intro progression x4, end on G)
  Wild, wild, wild

I strum the chords like this:

1 & 2 &(3)& 4 & (1)& 2 &(3)& 4 &
D U X U   U X U |  U X U   U D U

The X's are a rake across muted strings.
