There are actually a few ways you can play this song.  The Key is Ebminor, so you can
it using barre chords or by CAPOING the 6th fret to play it in Aminor.  You can also lower
tuning 1/2 step to Eb and play it open in eminor (this is what is probably happening on 
record.)

Or, you can always play it in Eminor open with regular tuning, knowing it will be 1/2
higher than the record.  I transcribed it as sounded on the recording - at the bottom is
out the alternate chords.  If the key is too high to sing you can transcribe to Dm or 
the capo one or two frets if you use the capo.

ENJOY!!!

Ebm    F#                C#
At the sharp end of the view
    G#             Ebm
The edge of me and you
               F#               C#         G#
And all good sense that tread no further
Ebm         F#               C#
And as the ghost will shiver trees
          G#              Ebm
How I'm tremblin' on my knees
               F#                 C#
But I'm still drawn on by the the murmur
         Ebm            E
Are you laughing at me now?
B      Bb
In my circumstance
      Ebm              E
When still I wear your crown
B          Bb
My life's penitence
    G#
For what? What's so funny?
   F#
A Box full o' honey

Ebm      F#                C#
What I thought a pretty tune
     G#             Ebm
Was howling at the moon
            F#           C#    G#
To keep me company this evening
Ebm         F#        C#
It's so lonely in the dirt
      G#            Ebm
A scratching at the hurt
        F#               C#       G#
That I so generously did leave you

        Ebm            E
Are you laughing at me now?
B     Bb
In my circumstance
      Ebm                E
When still I where your crown
B           Bb
Some cruel penitence
      G#
For what? What's so funny?
F#
A Box full o' honey

Break:  Ebm - F# - C# - G#
       Ebm             F#     C#-G#
Is she flirting with me now?
       Ebm              F#     C# - G#
Is she dallying with me now?
         Ebm             E
Are you flirting with me now?
B        Bb          Ebm             E
You'll always be my queen of tumble down
B      Bb
Miss Melancholy
         Ebm           E
Are you laughing at me now?
B         Bb
In my circumstance
      Ebm               E
When still I wear your crown
B                Bb
And my life's a penitence
G#
For what? What's so funny?
F#
Ain't it funny?
E                    Ebm
A Box full o' honey

- if you capo 6 and play it that way the chords are:
Verse: Am, C, G, D
Chorus: Am, Bb, F, E

If you either lower the tuning to Eb or play it in Em the chords are:

Verse - Em, G, D, A
Chorus - Em, F, C, B

One other way to play is to CAPO 1 and play it in Dm, as is tabbed in another posting.
