(NOTE: The chords aren't played in the song until the lyric "Lonesome lows...". The tab 
is played.)
       If you have any trouble with the rhythm it's basically all downstrokes on the downbeat.

    Em             G
The lack of light, hollow sea

B
Poison beaches, limousines

Em                  G             B
Toothless dentists, cops that kill

                  Em             G                       C
My baby's got the lonesome lows, don't quite go away overnight

       C  B                      Em       Am
Doctor Blind, just prescribe the blue ones

       Em             G                 C
If the dizzying highs don't subside overnight

       C  B                      Em      Am  Em  B  E
Doctor Blind, just prescribe the red ones

[Da da da part is:]

Em            G
Hard to hold, cold to touch

B
Fall to pieces, treat the rush

Em            G             B
In hindsight, primetime talk

Em       G           B
All your pain will end here

        Em     G             B
Let the doctor soothe your brain, dear

                  Em             G                       C
My baby's got the lonesome lows, don't quite go away overnight
