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

[Chords]

 |  E  | F#m |  Am |  C  |  Em |Em7sus4|
e|--0--|--2--|--0--|--0--|--0--|---0---|
B|--0--|--2--|--1--|--1--|--0--|---0---|
G|--1--|--2--|--2--|--0--|--0--|---2---|
D|--2--|--4--|--2--|--2--|--2--|---1---|
A|--2--|--4--|--0--|--3--|--2--|---2---|
E|--0--|--2--|--0--|--3--|--0--|---0---|

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

[Intro]

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

       E                              F#m
   She goes, she goes with her hollow bones
       E
   She goes

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

N.C.
   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
                Em7sus4
   It's getting pretty old

[Chorus]

   Am                             C
   Round and round we go, we go around
   Am                                   Em7sus4
   Round and round we go, she wont stay dead

   Stay down

[Bridge]
Em Em7sus4 Em Em7sus4

Em                                       Em7sus4
   There's an awful lot of holes I gotta dig
Em                                          Em7sus4
   When I know you're gonna climb back up again

   Stay dead, stay down

Em     Em7sus4
         Stay dead, stay down
Em                                 Em7sus4
   Stay across the sea, but I know where you'll be

[Chorus]

                Am                            C
   When I look around and round we go, we go around
   Am                                    Em7sus4
   Round and round we go, she won't stay dead
Em7sus4
   Stay down

[Guitar Solo]
Em Em7sus4 Em Em7sus4

   Em
   Lady you're a lure, dancing on the bar
Em7sus4
   Oh-ho, you know you are
       Em
   You call em' to the door, hook 'em in the jaw
Em7sus4
   Just for tonight, right?

       Em
   But maybe when you're bored with the easy caught
       Em7sus4
   And when I can't afford another empty touch

N.C.
NOTE: This next line 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|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
   Maybe then we'll board our ships with a couple of crashing hearts

[Chorus]

   Am                            C
   Round and round we go, we go around
   Am                              Em7sus4
   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
                Em7sus4
   Stay in the ground
                 Em
   She won't get out of my head
                Em7sus4
   Stay in the ground

                  Em
   She won't stay dead
                  Em7sus4
   She won't stay down
                  Em
   She won't stay dead
                  Em7sus4
   She won't stay down
                  Em
   She won't stay dead (She goes)
                  Em7sus4
   She won't stay down (She goes)
                  Em
   She won't stay

N.C.
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.
