      C       Am      F       G       Em    C7/A#

C Am C Am C Am F G

[Verse 1]
C               Am   C               Am      C           Am            F             G
rings round his eyes tracks down his arm his fans are confused and his friends are alarmed
    C            Am   C               Am   C            Am           F        G
his wife doesn't talk hates when he's gone counts every skirt in his new entourage

[Chorus 1]
            F            G                C          Em
and they're all gossamer thin left of the dial bohemians
         F                G                     C                Am
and they dance tournament style twirl round the room courtsy and smile
         C          Am   C       Am      F     G         F    G
and they sit at his feet read poetry and swoon with each word he speaks

C Am C Am C Am F G

[Verse 2]
    C             Am         C             Am        C           Am        F        G
she likes the new pope she's not scared of hell they meet once a week at a secret motel
    C          Am       C              Am       C                  Am           F             G
she kisses his neck she plays with his hair her screams sound like pleasure her moans like despair

[Chorus 2]
            F               G                  C                  Em
and they're spread gossamer thin pushed to the edge frayed at the ends
         F              G                     C                  Am
and it's no business of mine if they can love more than one at a time
            C             Am   C             Am   F    G  F   G  
but they're pushing their luck hard but they must risk it all for love

C7/A#                                   F       G
      now i walk around in some kind of altered state
Am                 F                   C     G
   the drink in my hand is starting to shake
C7/A#                                  F         G
      i'll get used to it if it has to stay this way
Am                F                      G
   a new bunch of flowers i'll have to arrange

[Verse 3]
  C             Am     C          Am  C        Am            F         G 
i don't want to eat or get out of bed try to recall what the therapist said
C       Am     C         Am       C           Am          F           G
ego and id the essential self you are who you are and you are someone else

[Chorus 3]
        F             G                  C                  Em
but i'm worn gossamer thin like delicate arch carved by the wind
          F               G                C               Am
there's a glass psyche at stake throw me a brick see if it breaks
          C            Am    C                Am            F    G    F   G
cause the mind and the brain aren't quite the same but they both want out of this place

Capo 1 sounds more right no, I think.  Other than that, it's perfect.
