I was looking at the first two versions of the tabs for this song and found that the
bar chords throughout the song sound better and won't give you carpel tunnel if a capo is
and they are played as open chords.  Also I added another chord that transitions well 
the last note of the pattern to the first which i can here in the actual song.  This is
first tab, but a simple song, so here it goes.

Note: - the chords are placed directly above the syllable that should be sung.

[Chorus] (x2)

                Em
But what you've done here
   D                      Am                 G
Is put yourself between a bullet and a target
                Em
And it won't be long before
       D                Am           G
You're pulling yourself away


[Verse 2]

          Em                   D
I've been knowing her for years
          Am                  G
I've been seeing her for years
        Em              D
She got dark, dark wavy hair
       Am                        G
With a voice like she just don't care
          Em                  D
She got a skirt with a halter top
            Am                   G
She's got a dad who never gave a f***
             Em                     D
She drinks a beer with her mom 'til dawn
                Am             G
She got knocked up in a pickup truck
            Em                       D
But she got engaged when she was nineteen
        Am                    G
To this dude who was acting insane
        Em               D
Had a .45 that he always cleaned
         Am              G
Said one day one day one too many days
        Em                  D
Now she ducked and she ran away
            Am                      G
Never to be heard from, never to be seen
            Em             D
I check the cover of a magazine
         Am                  G    -    D/F#
I'm just wondering how, just wondering


[Chorus] (x2)

                Em
But what you've done here
   D                      Am                 G
Is put yourself between a bullet and a target
                Em
And it won't be long before
       D                Am           G
You're pulling yourself away
