Trying to tab "Setting Sail, Coming Home", halp!

First of all this is the song (or at least someone covering the song) that I'm trying to tab out.

I can't see the guitar super great but here's what I've got so far

capo on 3rd fret (all chords listed relative to capo)

The beginning is just her hitting parts of the chords listed below, I haven't taken the time to tell exactly what strings shes hitting or not hitting yet.

Note: Everywhere I say "E" chord is most likely not an E chord. I can't tell what it is from the angle of the camera and how her hand is.

Lie on my back...
Am-Dm-C-E-

I see your star...
B7-E-B7-E

Then it does this all on the high E string (This is sort of the general idea, I'm fairly sure these notes are wrong, I have a terrible ear.)
8-8-8-7-5-----10-10-8-10-12-10-10-8-----8-7-7-7-8-7

b7-E-b7-E

I dig my hole...
Am-Dm-C-E

I build my city on a hill..
Am-Dm-C-E

Build that wall..
B7-E-B7-E

Lie on my back...
Am-Dm-C-E

Any help you guys can give me is greatly appreciated. I love this song and would like to have the proper chords/notes to play if possible XD.

I've already sort of pieced together what I could see from the video, unfortunately I doubt I have the skill to tab the actual song or at least by ear and not by looking at someones hands.

Sorry I wish I could be more help :(
