F# and A notes are emphasised during fingerpicking over E chords in verses,
'A' chords in the verses also feature a sus4 frequently, in fact many of the
chords have other 'colourings' over the top of them, I'll (bracket) chords
that I suggest work for the first verse and chorus, but here's as good as I
can get without getting hugely confusing trying to write out exactly which 
notes feature in which chords, because the variations change frequently. 
Best to just listen along with the recording and make your own conclusions 
on what to emphasise, this should be good enough though (hopefully...) 
the song's just as good with the root chords played, so enjoy! 

Intro: Bm C#m D E Bm C#m D E

Verse 1:

  A (sus4)
I went to a party with my girl in the city
     E 
On election night
      A (sus4) 
I was hoping that we gonna make a move to the left
       D               D/E           D/F#  
But we gone and made a swing to the right
        D/G#        D              Bmsus4
Now I'm singing the blues for the country
     F#m#5                   E (E7)
As we move into another long night

Chorus:

Dsus2   A                   E (E7)       Bm         C#m        Dsus2
 gonna catch that plane and fly by  (Catch that plane and fly)
      A                     E (E7)      
Gonna sail on the next high tide
Bm           C#m           Dsus2       A
Just to get away from that cocksucking motherfucker
E            A (A sus2) A
Darkening my mind

Verse 2:

   A
I stood in the corner throwing glances at the TV
           E7
ripped the label off a bottle or nine
     A
Some sucker rolled up in a beemer trailing streamers
       D         D/E    D/F#
And I nearly got into a fight
              D/G#     D           Bmsus4
I said you're making a fool of the country 
         F#m#5                     E          
holding hands with the Christian right,
                                  Dsus2
And I turned to my girl and I cried

Chorus:

Dsus2    A                   E7      Bm         C#m         Dsus2
 Gonna jump that train and ride by  (Jump that train and ride)  
A                     E7
Sail on the next high tide
  Bm         C#m           D  Dsus2    A
Just to get away from that cocksucking motherfucker
E             Bm       C#m     E     A   
Playing on my mind and darkening our times



C#m     E     A      C#m     E       A
          Cocksucker,          motherfucker
C#m     E     A            C#m     E     A
          Cocksucker motherfucker

Bridge:

E                          A 
Well all of a sudden I got something to say
  Dsus2/F#                   A/E
I buried my head but it wouldn't go away
  E                        A
I sat around waiting for a brighter day
        Dsus2                       C#m                   Bmsus4    E 
But the bad stuff's coming when the good do nothing it's true
                   Dsus2
So what am I gonna do?

Chorus:

Dsus2     A              E      Bm        C#m       Dsus2
Gonna backpack through Peru  (Backpack through peru)
      A                    E                Bm        C#m
Gonna work for a time on a farm in Timbuctoo, To get away from those
Dsus2       A 
Cocksucking motherfuckers
E              Bm         C#m
Playing on my mind To get away from those 
Dsus2       A
Cocksucking motherfuckers
E             A
Darkening our times.


C#m     E     A      C#m     E       A
          Cocksucker,          motherfucker
C#m     E     A            C#m     E     A
          Cocksucker motherfucker
