You gonna need a second player for the intro, one strumming and the other one doing the lead guitar melody parts.

But you can also do both, simultaneously pluck the D bass note while doing the melody.

[Intro]
Dm
......

[Verse 1]
Dm           C/E              F    G
Cody says he didn't start the fire.....
Am              G                F
...His parents know he probably did
Dm           C/E             F    G
He's always playing with a light....
Am               G                F
...He's just a different kind of kid
     Dm          C/E                F    G
And Cody says He didn't raise the dead.....
Am          G                F
...Says "religion's just a trick
Dm            C/E              F    G    
To keep hard-working folks in line.....
Am             G                 F
...He says it makes his stomach sick
[Chorus]
   Dm            C        F  
So who's gonna carry us away?
 Bb          Am            Gm 
Eagles with glory-painted wings?
C                            Bb        Am   
We keep on waiting for the miracle to come
 C              F               Bb         Am     C    F
Pour down the mountain like a heaven-fed stream...........

[Verse 2]
 Dm           C/E              F     G
Cody's always got one on the line....... 
Am              G                F  
...He likes to walk 'em by the wrist
Dm           C/E               F    G
He does his pulling with his eyes......
Am               G                F
...He does his talking with his fists
 Dm           C/E             F     G     
Bottle rockets on an August night........
Am            G              F
...Raid the coolers in the trucks
Dm        C/E             F         G  
If we're lucky we'll get loud and we'll drink
Am          G              F  
...Whiskey from a plastic jug

[Chorus]
    Dm           C        F  
So who's gonna carry us away?
 Bb          Am            Gm 
Eagles with glory-painted wings?
C                            Bb        Am   
We keep on waiting for the miracle to come
 C               F           Bb            Am   
Fall from the firmament and give us nice things

[Bridge]
C               Bb  
.....Round and round it goes
C             Bb            Gm        
....Where it stops, nobody knows
Bb           Dm 
.....nobody knows

[Guitar solo]
Dm     C     F     Bb     Am    Gm
......................................
Dm     C     F     Bb     Am    Gm
......................................

[Chorus]
    Dm           C        F  
So who's gonna carry us away?
 Bb          Am            Gm 
Eagles with glory-painted wings?
C                            Bb        Am   
We keep on waiting for the miracle to come
 C               F             Bb            Am  
Roll down the mountain to the sound of sad strings
C           F              Bb  Am   C    F      
We keep on waiting for the miracle.........
        Bb  Am  
For the miracle
C           F              Bb  Am   C    F   
We keep on waiting for the miracle..........
        Bb  Am   C    F
For the miracle..........
