I think these are pretty accurate chords. To play it like the Fiona track, pay attention 
to inversions. Enjoy!

[Note: Fdim7/Db can also be thought of as Db7(add9)]

Fiona Apple - Pale September


Ab6      Cdim   Ab6                              Cdim
Pale September, I wore the time like a dress that year
Ab6               Cdim   Ab6                           Cdim
The autumn days swung soft around me, like cotton on my skin
Ab6                Cdim     Ab6                              Cdim
But as the embers of the summer lost their breath and disappeared
Ab6                   Cdim     Ab6                            Cdim
My heart went cold and only hollow rhythms resounded from within
Fdim7          Fdim7/Db
But then he rose, brilliant as the moon in full
Fdim7                         Fdim7/Db
And sank in the burrows of my keep
    Gb     Absus4    Ebm7      Gb     
Absus4   Ebm7
And all my armor falling down, in a pile at my feet
    Gb     Absus4  Ebm7     Absus4   Gb     
    Absus4    Ebm7
And my winter giving way to warm, as I'm singing him to sleep

Cdim
Ab6   Cdim   Ab6     Cdim
Ab6   Cdim   Ab6     Cdim

Ab6           Cdim    Ab6        Cdim
He goes along just as a water lily
Ab6           Cdim    Ab6                          Cdim
Gentle on the surface of his thoughts his body floats
Ab6      Cdim   Ab6                 Cdim
Unweighed down by passion or intensity
Ab6                Cdim   Ab6               Cdim
Yet unaware of the depth upon which he coasts
Fdim7      Fdim7/Db
And he finds a home in me
Fdim7                            Fdim7/Db
For what misfortune sows, he knows my touch will reap

    Gb        Absus4    Ebm7       Gb    
Absus4   Ebm7
And all my armor falling down, in a pile at my feet
    Gb   Absus4    Ebm7   Absus4     Gb     
Absus4   Ebm7
And my winter giving way to warm, as I'm singing him to sleep

Fdim7    Fdim7/Db   Fdim7    Fdim7/Db

Gb      Absus4    Ebm7     Gb     Absus4   Ebm7
All my armor falling down, in a pile at my feet
    Gb    Absus4    Ebm7   Absus4    Gb     
Absus4   Ebm7
And my winter giving way to warm, as I'm singing him to sleep
 Gb        Absus4    Ebm7     Gb     Absus4 
  Ebm7
All my armor falling down, in a pile at my feet
    Gb   Absus4    Ebm7   Absus4     Gb     
Absus4   Ebm7
And my winter giving way to warm, as I'm singing him to sleep

Gb   Absus4   Ebm7...  (repeat to the end)
