Awesome artist but not well known. Liked this song and couldn't find a tab so I made one.
This is the Audiotree session version. He does a no capo version as well and its the 
exact same chords.

Capo 6
The Bass line follows this pattern and you just pick the chords overtop

          Am
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----0-------------------0-------------------0--------3-----0------------0-|
E|-------------0--------3----------0---------3---------------------0-----3---|

The bass changes to follow the C chord. Anything in brackets is optional but it is in 
the song.

          C
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------(pick)-----(pick)-----(pick)----(pick)---------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------(0)--3---------------(0)--3---------------------------------|
E|--------3------------------3-----------------------------------------------|
(pick just means pick the top strings in the C chord)

The strumming pattern is pretty simple. Listen to the song to get it down.
Intro: Am
    C
Oh, I see a girl thats blue like the sea
                                              Am
when i go to sleep you know that she sees me, too
      C
yeah, just standing around like the popular kids
                                   Am
hoping saint peter will let us in, too
                         F
"well," he says " if you value your life stay off the drugs
       C
if you value the drugs stay off the map.
       G
if you value maps you better travel, son.
       F                                         C(single strum)          Am
if you dont want to travel then you better run"

ooh, yeah, mmm, oh
           C
yeah, well I knew a king in his purple throne
                                              Am
oh, and he had some trouble so he's all alone now
       C
well I used to bring him little presents from time to time
                                             Am
and hed sit me in his castle and hed pick my mind
          F
he said, "if you value your heart, oh stay on the road.
       C
if you value the road, oh stay on the top .
       G
if you value the top, oh youre gonna suffer son.
       F                                             C(single strum)      Am
and if you dont want to suffer, then you better run"

(Full strums)

       C
well i see my boss in his practical suit
                                            Am
ill toss him in the cellar wont give him no food

(Back to picking)

     C
when anybody tries to tell him what to do
                                   Am
he holds his breath until he turns blue
          F
he says, "if you value your job, stay out of crime.
       C
if you value the crime, stay out of doors.
       G
if you value them doors you better lock em son.
       F                                    G
and if you dont want to lock em, you better buy a gun"

This part speeds up. Its the same Chords but just at a different tempo. Theres a few 
riffs here. Theres no real
pattern I can distinguish. He just plays around with the high B and E strings on the 
third fret with his pinkie.
He also throws in some bends on the B string.
The new bass riff comes to this.
         Am
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------0-----3-----------------0------33--------------------|
E|-------0------3------------------0------3----------------------------------|

           C
yeah, well i saw a snake in an apple tree
                                                    Am
you know i didnt trust a word that he hissed to me, no!
                   C
yeah, he said, "it must be gettin awful lonely tryin to save the world;
                                                   Am
just buy a collared shirt and try and fuck some girls."
          F
he said, "if you value your limbs, stay in the game.
       C
if you value the game, stay in the style.
       G
if you value that style, youre a sinkin son.
       F
if you dont want to sink then you better run."

(strumming) C     Am     C     Am

Little ending rif
        C                             F

All of the chords sound bang on but I'm having so much difficulty trying to work out the bass notes and picking the chords and everything :(
