Audience is a British art rock band. They were originally active from 
1969 to 1973, a relatively long band lifespan during that turbulent 
and highly productive era (they outlived Cream by a full year) 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audience_%28band%29 . They reformed in 2004 
and remain active http://www.audienceareback.com/ . Their self-titled 
debut album, recorded for Polydor, contained this song, Waverly 
Stagecoach. This song is notable for two reasons (besides being a 
highly infectious meme that sticks in your head): 1. It is essentially 
a short-short horror story told in lyrics, and 2. it uses the same distinctive main 
chord sequence as in Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay" without
sounding like it. Although not specifically rare, this album's reprints 
are difficult to locate. You can find bittorrent downloads so you can 
hear this song, but by all means if you intend to keep it, support the
artists by buying it.

INTRO: pick top 3 strings:

If you go out tonight in Waverley Park
G              F               C           D7
Don't hail the carriage you'll meet in the dark
      G           F            C              D7
Ain't no call for laughter, my words you must mark
          Bb        C        G
Or you'll be on the Waverley Stagecoach
       Bb        C        G
you'll be on the Waverley Stagecoach


     G            F          C       D7
Some twenty years since or a similar while
    G            F         C            D7
The Mayor of the City, his wife and his child
     G           F            C        D7
They boarded the carriage but inside a mile
           Bb            C        G
Were flung dead from the Waverley Stagecoach
      Bb            C        G
flung dead from the Waverley Stagecoach


     G          Bm            F               Am 
They say that the wheels on the coach are bright red
G              Bm           F            Am
Stained with the blood that's come from the dead
    G        Bm          F         Am
The driver is fire and the horses are white
       Bb        Bb   C       C          G
And it claims anybody    that travels by night
 

        G             F               C             D7
You can laugh all you like but you'll laugh on your own
        G           F           C          D7
There's eighty-five people from this town alone
     G            F               C            D7
In a short twenty years have been murdered and thrown
         Bb         C        G
From the cab of the Waverley Stagecoach
         Bb         C        G
From the cab of the Waverley Stagecoach

They say that the wheels on the coach are bright red
G              Bm           F            Am
Stained with the blood that's come from the dead
    G        Bm          F         Am
The driver is fire and the horses are white
       Bb        Bb   C       C          G
And it claims anybody    that travels by night


        G             F               C             D7
You can laugh all you like but you'll laugh on your own
        G           F           C          D7
There's eighty-five people from this town alone

So if you go out tonight in Waverley Park
G              F               C           D7
Don't hail the carriage you'll meet in the dark

Ain't no call for laughter, my words you must mark

Or you'll be on the Waverley Stagecoach
       Bb        C        G
