I've been addicted to this song lately, so I've been working on a Tab to do it acoustically. 

I'm a Tab-Newb so bare with me...
(The E at the end of the 2nd phrase is just for color, I don't think they actually 
play it, but it sounds nice every now and then).

4 chords...cake (F#m, A, E, D)


Standard Tuning
EADGBe

                      F#m A
Baby put down the drink, 
                  E  A  E
baby put down the bottle
                      F#m A
You're starting to sink
            E     
When you're down on your knees, it's so hard to swallow

F#m  A    E     A       E   
Ooooooh  OoooAAAAOoooooh

F#m                           A
Your heart is beating like a loaded gun
       E                       A           E
What's done is done and you're spinning in circles
F#m                      A
Where's the girl that I used to know
            E                      A    E
Why did you let her go, you know I loved her so
D                        A                     E
It's never any more than one for me but always two or three for you

(Chorus)
                  F#m      A
Baby put down the drink,
                  E   A   E
baby put down the bottle
                   F#m  A   E
You're starting to sink
                                    A          E      
When you're down on your knees it's so hard to swallow
F#m                   A
I don't wanna see it go this way
E                            A  E
Feeling like tomorrow's just a yesterday
F#m                       A
I hate the way it is and to tell you the truth
     E               A     E
It's killing me and it's killing you
F#m                    A      
I can't stand all the ups and downs 
    E                           A    E
The back and forths, and the round and rounds
F#m                      A
The ins and outs of the slammin' doors
     E                          A      
It's tearing me apart, I can't take no more
D                       A                     E
It's never anymore than one for me but always two or three for you

(Chorus)

F#                A
Baby put down the drink
                  E  A   E
baby put down the bottle
                   F#m  A
You're starting to sink
            EEEE                      AAAA       
When you're down on your knees it's so hard to swallow

F#m                     A
I want us back like we were before
             E                  A    E
Not like the broken glass lying on the floor
         F#m x4                              A
Baby put down the drink, baby put down the bottle

(Bridge)

   D                   
It feels like it's all slipping away
         A               A
I wish I had you like it has you
D
It feels like it's all slipping away
         A
I wish I had you

(Guitar Solo) F#m A E

(Chorus - Arpeggio)
                  F#m   A
Baby put down the drink
                  E   A  
baby put down the bottle
                   F#m   A
You're starting to sink

        E (Chord)
You get high when you're down but I'm watching you fall

(Chorus) x2-3

(Outro)

F#m (Arpeggio)                A (Arpeggio)
Your heart is beating like a loaded gun
                   E (Arpeggio)
and what's done is done 
            F#m (Chord)
You're just spinning in circles
