I'm quite sure the timing will end up wrong in the bridge, but it's hard to work it out. 
With the chords, you shoul dbe able to figure it out for yourself!  I'm quite sure this 
end up looking a mess when it's submitted, but you'll get the gist.

UPDATE: Chord diagrams added, finally, hope that helps, sorry they weren't there before!

[Tuning: Standard - E,A,D,G,B,E]


      G           Aadd9 Bm
I’d arrest you if I had handcuffs
      G           Aadd9     Bm
I’d arrest you if I had the time
    G         Aadd9       Bm
I’d throw you down in the backseat
            Asus2/F#             G
As if you'd committed a terrible crime

G Aadd9 Bm [x4]

    G          Aadd9           Bm
I'd break in a town's worth of houses
    G         Aadd9    Bm
And rob whole families blind
    G        Aadd9          Bm
I’d do it to you like you'd do it to me
       Asus2/F#                G
If you knew you would get away fine

    G               Aadd9  Bm
I’d drown all these crying babies
     G               Aadd9            Bm
If I knew that their mothers wouldn’t cry
    G         Aadd9        Bm
I’d hold them down and I’d squeeze real soft
    Asus2/F#       G      Aadd9
And let a piece of myself die

G/D                 Dadd11
It’s hard to be the better man
     Em7/B
When you forget you’re trying
     G       Asus2/F# G      Aadd9  G
It’s hard to be  the  better man

    G             Aadd9 Bm
I’d arrest you if I had handcuffs
    G             Aadd9     Bm
I’d arrest you if I had the time
    G            Aadd9       Bm
I’d wait for you outside the courtroom
    Asus2/F#                             G
And taunt you when all your appeals were declined


    G        Aadd9        Bm
I’d drive my car off of a bridge
     G             Aadd9     Bm
If I knew that you weren’t inside
         G            Aadd9            Bm
With the pedal to the floor, who could ask for a more
          Asus2/F#         G    Aadd9
Fantastic way to kill some time


B5                                Bm7/G
You could lay on your back and be beaten
                                D5/B
You could put up your fists and fight

You could try and be way off


G/D                 Dadd11
It’s hard to be the better man
          Em7/B
When you forget you’re trying
     G       D/F#   Em     D/F#
It’s hard to be the better man

When you’re still lying


G/D                 Dadd11
It’s hard to be the better man
         Em7/B
When you forget you’re trying
     G       Dadd11/F#  Em     Dadd11/F#
It’s hard      to       be the better man
     G      Dadd11/F# Em    Dadd11/F#
When you’re still     lying
G      Dadd11/F# Em    Dadd11/F#
You’re still     lying

This is one of those songs that just discourages you from trying to play it just with all the chords you have to learn.

Whether it's good or not (because I definitely don't feel like finding out haha) nice (and complicated) tab.

Good job.
