I don't know if it's all 100% accurate, and some chords sound a little weird, but these are close.

G                         D
Did you give it away
G                      D             Em
Did you give it away for free
                               D              Em
Don't you give it away
Let's try to keep it in the family
Em                               G
I know you know desolation
Em                                 G            D         Em
Coming home with your pockets full of sand
I know it's no vacation
Em                                   G    D           C
Now you're plowing your tiny patch of land
C                          D       G
In a nation under your command
G                       D
Did you give it away (Yeah I gave it away)
G                       D          Em
Did you give it away for free
Em                                  D
What would you have us pay?
                                                   D                      Em
I didn't know that your love was a commodity
Em                   G
What about appreciation
Em                               G              D   Em
That depends on your depth and density
Em                    G
What about inflation
Em                                          G          D          C
Your charts and graphs don't mean a thing to me
                 C                   D              G
In your nation with its worthless currency

G                                  D
Would you hide in the hay
G                                  D           Em
Would you hide in the hay with me
Em                              D
Won't you hide in the hay
Em                                D
Where it's dark and we can scarcely breathe or see
Em                     G
Assured asphyxiation
Em                              G              D              Em
Where the foxes and field mice make their dens
Em                     G
Death by association
Em                              G          D        C
I swore I'd never take anyone there again
To this nation
C                        D         G
A nation under your command

a few things I noticed: in the third part of the verses (I know you know desolation), it goes to C instead of Em, and then it's C instead of Em for the rest of the verse. Also the chorus is A# Ab G (would you give it away, give it away for free), same as the intro, cool tab!
