You have to accentuate the bass. ()

..don't drink the water...

Verse I:

D5                                  Am5/D [Figure 1] D5
Come out, come out, no use in hiding
D5                                  Am5/D [Figure 1] D5
Come out, come out, can you not see?
D5                                  Am5/D [Figure 1] D5
Theres no place here what were you expecting?
D5                                  Am5/D [Figure 1] D5
No room for both, just room for me
G5                          D5 [Figure 1] D5
So you will lay your arms down
G5                    D5 [Figure 1] D5
Yes I will call this home

Verse II:

Away, away
You have been banished
Your land is gone and given me
And here I will spread my wings
Yes I will call this home
What's this you say?
You feel a right to remain? Then stay
And I will bury you

Bridge:

 Bm
Whats this you say?
                    G5
You feel a right to remain? Then stay
                    D5  [Figure 1] D5
And I will bury you
 Bm
Whats this you say?
                           G
Your fathers spirit still lives in this place?
                         D5  [Figure 1] D5
Well, I will silence you

Verse III:

Here's the hitch, your horse is leaving
Don't miss your boat its leaving now
G5                                   D5
And as you go I will spread my wings
G5                       D5
Yes I will call this home

Bridge II:

Bm
I have no time
                    G5
To justify to you. Fool you're blind
                      D5
Now move aside for me
Bm
All I can say
                       G5
To you my new neighbor is you must move on
                   D5
Or I will bury you
          G5                  D5
Now as I rest my feet by this fire
                   G5                              D5
Those hands once warmed here, well I have retired them
                     G5                           D5
And I can breathe my own air and I can sleep more soundly
  Bm
Upon these poor souls
            G5                       D5
I'll build Heaven and call it home
Cause your all dead now

End:

Bb/D                     D5
And I live with my justice
And I live with my greedy need
I'm gonna live with no mercy
And I'll live with my frenzied feeding
I live with my hatred
And I'll live with my jealousy
I'm gonna live with the notion
That I don't need anyone but me....
Don't drink the water
Don't drink the water
There's blood in the water
Don't drink the water

Ending: Bb/D D5

Chords:

      D5  Am5/D  G5  Bm   Bb/D
E|-|---X----X----X----2----X----|-|
B|-|---X----X----X----3----X----|-|
G|-|---7----5----X----4----7----|-|
D|-|---7----7----5----4----8----|-|
A|-|---5----7----5----2----5----|-|
D|-|---0----0----5----X----0----|-|

Another way to the play the G5:

E|-|--5--|-|
B|-|--7--|-|
G|-|--7--|-|
D|-|--7--|-|
A|-|--5--|-|
e|-|--5--|-|

Is not complicated,
 if you want this to sound good you will need a bass.
