Almost positive this is right. Some parts are pretty ambiguous because this song 
isn't played with chords, but it should make sense if you play around with it a 
little. If you have any questions contact me at alphadude500@yahoo.com

Intro: C

C           G  F
So now I am older
Em              F
Than my mother and father
Em              Dm
When they had their daughter
    G              F         G  G7
Now what does that say about me?
   C           G     F
Oh how could I dream of
Em                  F
Such a selfless and true love
Em             Dm
Could I wash my hands of?
G           F       G  G7
Just lookin out for me

   F          Em      Dm Dsus2
Oh man what I used to be
   F   Em Dm F  G  G7
Oh man oh my oh me
   F          Em      Dm Dsus2
Oh man what I used to be
   F   Em Dm F  G  G7
Oh man oh my oh me

In dirth or in excess
Both the slave and the empress
Will return to the dirt I guess
Naked as when they came
I wonder if I'll see
Any faces above me
Or just cracks in the ceiling
Nobody else to blame

Chorus repeat

Gold teeth and gold jewelry
Every piece of your dowry
Throw them into the tomb with me
Bury them with my name
Unless I have someday
Ran my wandering
In my underwaaaa

Em Dm
G F G G7

   F          Em      Dm (hold)
Oh man what I used to be
     F    Em     Dm Dsus2
Montezuma to tripoli
   F   Em Dm F  G
Oh man oh my oh me

very accurate i figured the same and checked but i think the 5th chord in chorus should be G not F look at some live videos ;)
what do you think?

I definitely see what you mean, you could easily put the G there instead. I guess I just sort of view them as interchangeable, it would sound good either way. Thanks for noticing that, though.
