[Intro]
A F#m
A F#m
A F#m
D E

[Verse]
A               F#m
Rings 'round his eyes
A               F#m
Tracks down his arm
A               F#m
His fans are confused and his 
D              E
friends are alarmed
A               F#m
His wife doesn't talk
A               F#m
Hates when he's gone
A              F#m
Counts every skirt 
D                E
in his new entourage


[Chorus]
             D            E7
And they're all gossamer thin
             A       F#m
Left of the dial, bohemians
           D                   E7
And they dance, tournament in style
                  A                F#m
Twirl 'round the room, curtsey and smile
A               F#m
And they sit at his feet, 
A       F#m
read poetry and
A       E        D   E7    A
Swoon with each word he speaks


[Harmonica]

A F#m

D E


[Verse]

A                  F#m
She likes the new pope
A                   F#m
She's not scared of hell
A                 F#m 
They meet once a week 
       D      E
at a secret motel
A               F#m
She kisses his neck, 
A               F#m
she plays with his hair
A                        F#m
Her screams sound like pleasure, 
      D           E
her moans like despair


[Verse]
              D              E7
And they're spread gossamer thin
               A                  F#m
Pushed to the edge, frayed at the ends
         D              E7
And it's no business of mine
                A                F#m
They can love more than one at a time
            A               F#m
But they're pushing their luck
A               F#m
Hard but they must
A    E   D   E7    A
Risk it all for love

[Bridge]
                                   
C#m                                 D            E
Now I walk around in some kind of altered state
F#m              D                    A         
The drink in my hand is starting to shake
C#m                            D                E
I get used to it if it has to stay this way
F#m               D                   E7
A new bunch of flowers I'll have to arrange


[Harmonica]

A F#m
D E


[Verse]

A               F#m
I don't want to eat 
A             F#m
or get out of bed
A         F#m
Try to recall 
          D        E
what the therapist said
A      F#m
Ego and Id,
A              F#m
the Essential Self
A               F#m
You are who you are 
      D             E
and you are someone else


[Chorus]
       
          D            E7
But I'm worn gossamer thin
               A                  F#m
Like delicate arch, carved by the wind
            D               E7
There's a glass psyche at stake
            A                 F#m
Throw me a brick, see if it breaks
       A                  F#m
'Cause the mind and the brain 
A                 F#m
aren't quite the same
A               E  D    E7     A 
But they both want out of this place


[Outro]

A7 in the bridge, not Gm

To my ear the Gm sounds better - if a bunch of others comment in favor of the A7 change I'll update it.

If the song is in the key of A (with the capo) there most certainly won't be a chord of Gm... Give the original another listen bud
