First start by tuning your 6th string to a D.
Then tune the whole guitar down 1/2 step

(*not exact, but I think it's pretty close*)

D6                           Esus/B   Gmaj7
On the bank of the Tennesse River
In a small Kentucky town
Bm                         Gmaj7              
I drew my first breath one cold November morning
       D                             F#m
And before my feet even touched the ground
             D                             F#sus
With the doctors and the nurses gathered 'round
F#m           Bm
I started to dance
I started to dance

Verse 1:

D6                              Esus/B   Gmaj7
A little boy full of wide-eyed wonder
Footloose and fancy free
Bm                         Gmaj7
But it would happen, as it does for every dancer
             D                         F#m
That I'd stumble on a truth I couldn't see
      D                           F#m
And find a longing deep inside of me, it said


I am the heart, I need the heartbeat
I am the eyes, I need the sight
Esus/B                   Gmaj7
I realize that I am just a body
I need the life
Bm                                       Gmaj7
I move my feet, I go through the motions

But who'll give purpose to chance
I am the dancer
  Gmaj7     A           Bm
I need the Lord of the dance

Verse 2:
The world beneath us spins in circles
And this makes us twist and turn and sway
But we were made for more than rhythm with no reason
By the one who moves with passion and with grace
As He dances over all that He has made
