[Intro]
Em, G, C/G, G, Gm (x2)

[Verse 1]
Em                    G             
Do I have nothing good left to say
C/G                        G        Gm                       
Do I need whiskey to start fueling my complaints
Em                        G                    
People love to drink their troubles away
C/G                          G                   Gm
Sometimes I feel that I'd be better off that way

[Chorus]
Em                      G               
Cause maybe then I could sleep at night
C/G                     G                   Gm                    
I wouldn't lie awake until the morning light
Em                           G               
This is something that I'll never control
C/G                            G    Gm
My nerves will be the death of me I know
Em   G                  C/G               G     Gm
         I knoooooow            I know
      
[Verse 2]
Em                      G         
So here's to living life miserable
C/G                          G                     Gm                     
And here's to all the lonely stories that I've told
Em                        G                   
Maybe drinking wine would validate my sorrow
C/G                        G             Gm
Every man needs a muse and mine could be the bottle

[Chorus]
Em                G                
Maybe then I could sleep at night
C/G                    G               Gm                   
I wouldn't lie awake until the morning light
Em                          G             
This is something that I'll never control
C/G                           G     Gm
My nerves will be the death of me I know

[Bridge]
C/G              Gm              Em
Finally I could hope for a better day
C/G                      Gm                       Em
No longer holding on to all the things that cloud my mind
C/G                Gm                      Em
Maybe then the weight of the world wouldn't seem so heavy
          C/G (stop)        Gm (stop)        Em
But then again I'll probably always feel this way

[Chorus 2]
Em                        G              
At least I know I'll never sleep at night
C/G                     G            Gm                    
I'll always lie awake until the morning light
Em                          G                
This is something that I'll never control
C/G                            Gm    
My nerves will be the death of me
 C/G                           Gm 
My nerves will be the death of me
 C/G                           Gm (stop)
My nerves will be the death of me
       Em (slow Strum)
I know

So I could be wrong, but I'm fairly certain that what's been labeled a "Gm" is actually a "D9 Add 11 / A".

Basically, a D major chord with an added 4th and 9th, but with the 5th (the A) only appearing below the root. From low to high it's tabbed:

5 - 5 - 4 - 0 - 3 - 0

Which would be:

5th - Root - Major 3rd - 4th - Octave - 9th

It's close to the Jazz "dominant 9sus4 chord"... only the 5th is suspended instead of the 3rd (and the 5th does appear in the bass in this case, too).

For any beginners looking to play that odd D9 chord, you can simply strum this easier fingering:

X - 0 - 0 - 0 - 3 - 0

Here's what that is in terms of the intervals:

X - 5th - Root - 4th - Octave - 9th

So it's almost exactly the same; it's just lacking the major 3rd in the voicing. But in exchange for that, you get a much easier transition from the G major chord you just played. All you have to do in this case is lift off all of your fingers except for the 3rd fret on the B string.

If you play D9 instead of Gm it sounds perfect :)
