My first tab
I couldn't find any chords or tabs on the song so I went ahead and figured out how to 
play it with chords
Might not be completely accurate but it still sounds great to play

Standard Tuning
CAPO : 4th Fret

Not sure what the chord names are so I'll just call them by what they would be if they 
were played without a capo

CHORDS:
    E  | Gm? |  Am |  C  |  Em |  ?  |  P  |
e|--0--|--2--|--0--|--0--|--0--|--0--|--x--|
B|--0--|--2--|--1--|--1--|--0--|--0--|--x--|
G|--1--|--2--|--2--|--0--|--0--|--2--|--x--|
D|--2--|--4--|--2--|--2--|--2--|--1--|--x--|
A|--2--|--4--|--0--|--3--|--2--|--2--|--x--|
E|--0--|--2--|--0--|--3--|--0--|--0--|--x--|

Intro:
It sounds best if you just play the low E string to imitate the bass then as the song 
progresses start playing the A as well then the D and just keep adding in the next strings 
until you're playing the full chords

E
   I can explain why I cannot give my heart back
Gm                   E
   I left it with my Lady Blue
E
   What was her name? She flew in, I caught her
Gm                 E
   I was a fool to let her go

       E                              Gm
   She goes, she goes with her hollow bones
       E
   She goes

E
   Every year she's back for the season
Gm                   E
   I have to keep my windows closed
E
   I couldn't shake what my mother warned me of
Gm                        E
   Try to keep me safe between the pews
E
   I stepped away, saw that Love was outside
Gm                         E
   She wore a name, just a different one

   They all say

P (Just palm mute and play along to the clapping and chains and stuff)
   I'm sorry boy, you shouldn't fly with her kind

   They found a way out of God's love

Bridge:
E-Em-E-Em

       E          Em                    E
   She goes, shes goes with her hollow bones
                              Em
   Keepin it pretty is gettin pretty old
             E                Em
   Keepin it pretty is gettin pretty old
                ?
   It's getting pretty old

   Am                             C
   Round and round we go, we go around
   Am                                   ?
   Round and round we go, she wont stay dead

   Stay down

Bridge:
Em-?-Em-?

Em                                       ?
   There's an awful lot of holes I gotta dig
Em                                          ?
   When I know you're gonna climb back up again

   Stay dead, stay down

Em     ?
         Stay dead, stay down
Em                                 ?
   Stay across the sea, but I know where you'll be

                Am                            C
   When I look around and round we go, we go around
   Am                                    ?(strum once then mute)
   Round and round we go, she won't stay dead

   Stay down

Guitar solo:
Em-?-Em-?

   Em
   Lady you're a lure, dancing on the bar
?
   Oh-ho, you know you are
       Em
   You call em' to the door, hookem' in the jaw
?
   Just for tonight, right?

       Em
   But maybe when you're bored with the easy caught
       ?
   And when I can't afford another empty touch

   11/13                      9/11                   7/9               6/8
   Maybe then we'll board our ships with a couple of crashing hearts
NOTE:This is meant to be interpreted without a capo
   e|-----------------------------|
   B|-----------------------------|
   G|--13-----11-----9-----8------|
   D|--13-x8--11-x8--9-x8--8-x7---|
   A|--11-----9------7-----6------|
   E|-----------------------------|

   Am                            C
   Round and round we go, we go around
   Am                              ?
   Round and round we go, she stay dead

   Stay down

   Am                            C
   Round and round we go, we go around
   Am
   Round and round we go

                 Em
   She won't get out of my head
               ?
   Stay in the ground
                 Em
   She won't get out of my head
               ?
   Stay in the ground

                  Em
   She won't stay dead
                  ?
   She won't stay down
                  Em
   She won't stay dead
                  ?
   She won't stay down
                  Em
   She won't stay dead (She goes)
                  ?
   She won't stay down (She goes)
                  Em
   She won't stay

Then it ends with something like this:
   e|-0-x8--2-x4--5-x4--|(Bend the 5 a little and slow the strums down)
   B|-0-----0-----0-----|
   G|-------------------|
   D|-------------------|
   A|-------------------|
   E|-------------------|

for most of the ? I think what you need there is a B major. Its in a minor key so its very common for the V to be a major

Actually its a B Dominant 7 for the ? played as an open chord instead of a bar over the second fret.

You also tabbed out the Gm as a an F#m. Also, referring to my first comment a dominant chord would be written out like B7. and in the chord cody takes out the 5th on the guitar to let the bass have more room to move and punch through, so you got that right for the most part.
