Okay, this is right from the book, so it should be pretty accurate.
From the 1993 film 'The Nightmare Before Christmas', by Tim Burton. If you haven't seen 
GO AND DO IT NOW!! Jack's amazing...

Well, this is the first song from the film,and it's pretty hardcore; flatted 5ths and 
accidentals all over the place - good luck! (This chord list scared me to write out, and I 
tend to scare easy...)
