Here's my chart that works 100% with the Dead Set version.
Code: Select all
A                 Bm     C        G                 D
Fare you well, my honey, fare you well my only true one.
A                       Em          C                  D
All the birds that were singing are flown, except you alone.

I fixed your post by placing in between code tags.

This particular topic has been covered ad nausea...The RUKind version is the original recording key. Some years on, the Dead changed the key, raising it 1 full step. Without having gone through your entire chart, I would suspect that there's NO DIFFERENCE between the two except the key change. Meaning you could put a capo on your guitar at fret 2 and play the version in the archive and you'd achieve exactly what you have here. Or you could really do yourself a favor and learn about transposing.

Many folks have approached this song from the Dead Set version. Having not learned it in original key of F. That's what happened to me. I even posted about it being wrong.Lol.That's why I was confused about your chart,Ed.What the hell is it doing in F? It's good to have the transposed version up here anyway.
