This is what I took from the Conan vid on youtube.


Capo 7th.

   C  G G/C D Dsus9

 C    G          G/C G D
Yeah, when I was only 17, 
        C               G/C G  D
I could hear the angels whispering
      C              G
So I droned into the woods and 
          G/C  G    D
wondered aimlessly about till
      C         G     G/C   G         D
I heard my mother shouting through the fog
     ...and so on... it looks like he throws in some Dsus9s after D too    
      C          G    G/C G      D
It turned out to be the howling of a dog
       C         G 
or a wolf to be exact
              G/C  G        D               
The sound sent shivers down my back
           G              G/C 
but I was drawn into the pack
     G     D           G
And before long, they allowed me 
      G/C        G          D
to join in and sing their song
             C                 G 
So from the cliffs and highest hill, yeah
         G/C    G       D
we would gladly get our fill,
             G         G/C  G        D
howling endlessly and shrilly at the dawn. 
       G                  G/C   G              D
And I lost the taste for judging right from wrong. 
        C                   G
For my flesh had turned to fur, yeah 
       G/C                G    D
And my thoughts, they surely were turned to 
  G           G/C    G     D
instinct and obedience to God.

         C         G
You can wear your fur
          G/C  G  D
like the river on fire.
       C         G
But you better be sure
        G/C    G       D 
if your makin' God a liar. 
     C            G             
I'm a rattlesnake, babe,
          G/C  G  D 
I'm like fuel on fire.
             C            G
So if you're gonna' get made,
           G/C  G  C   G         D        G    G/C G D
don't be afraid of what you've learned.        

C       G       G/C  G  D  
On the day that I turned 23, 
         G          G/C      G        D   Dsus9 D
I was curled up underneath a dogwood tree. 
       C         G
When suddenly a girl 
              G/C G      D    
with skin the color of a pearl, 
wandered aimlessly, 
        G              D   
but she didn't seem to see. 
         G                G/C  G       D  
She was listenin' for the angels just like me. 
         C                G
So I stood and looked about.
                G/C      G      D   
I brushed the leaves off of my snout. 
            C               G                    D
And then I heard my mother shouting through the trees. 
                  G                G/C     G      D    
You should have seen that girl go shaky at the knees. 
         C             G
So I took her by the arm
           G/C     G      D    
we settled down upon a farm. 
And raised our children up as 
G                  D         
gently as you pleased.

G    G/C    D    X2
           C                    G
And now my fur has turned to skin.
               G/C      G      D   
And I've been quickly ushered in 
        G          G/C       G      D
to a world that I confess I do not know.
            G                  G/C   G             D 
But I still dream of running careless through the snow.
                 C                   G 
An' through the howlin' winds that blow,
             G/C      G      D 
across the ancient distant flow,
              G               G/C   G     D
it fill our bodies up like water till we know.
G    G/C  G   D    X2
