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.

Verse 1:

Em             D
       Mr.Dali Lamas

Am                          G
  Another sister's shootin' heroin tomorrow

Em            D
  Amputees in Freetown

Sierra Leone's

The church wasn't honest
Em                  D
  The state put the youth in a harness

Am         G
  Creatin' hostility among us

Em             D
  Teacher said no college

Am                      G                         Em
  Still the kid's gotta get a check with a couple commas

People wanna bomb us

Am                  G                    Em
  More people gotta scatter and run from us
                    D                   Am          G - D/F#

You can blame it on Zeus and Apollo and Adonis

Chorus - Play 2x's

But what you've done here

   D                      Am                 G
Is put yourself between a bullet and a target

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 - Play 2x's

But what you've done here

   D                      Am                 G
Is put yourself between a bullet and a target

And it won't be long before

       D                Am           G
You're pulling yourself away
