[Intro]

Basic finger picking of the above chord shapes, listen to song to get the idea 

[G - G* - Em - Em*] x 2

This picking pattern more or less continues throughout the song, I've just listed the major chord changes

[Verse 1]
           G                    
I need to find somebody who can tear me away
         Em                    
From the car crying babies and switchblade days
     G           
The bark of the unemployment hounds
        Em                      
And the thought of the thick, white skull on the ground
        C*
I won't die in the bony arms of the state
      Em 
To be laid to rest in the wake of the faded town

[G - G* - Em - Em*] x 2 
[In the acoustic live versions, Scott throws in a couple of fills when picking the G chord]


[Verse 2]
           G
And if the raincoats come to steal my home
          Em
There's a big white house at the end of the road
      G
I can see you wrapped in Egyptian thread
     Em
In a marble garden, immune to the mess
       C*
If you leave this world in a rhinestone shroud
         Em 
We could finally make your father proud


[G - G* - Em - Em*] x 2 


[Pre-Chorus]
      C*
If I leave this world in a loaded daze
      Em                      C*         
I can finally have and eat my cake
 

[Chorus]
          G 
I want to die like a rich boy diving
     Bm 
In a hydro-codone dream
        C*
You can die like a rich girl by me
           D            C
Oh how the magazines will grieve
     G
I'll die like a rich boy bathing
     Bm
In a milk bath I could drown
        C*
Want to die like a rich boy
                 D            C
Even if we're as poor as we are now
          G
I want to die like a rich boy drowning
     Bm
In a lake that bears my name
        C*
You can die like a rich girl by me
            D          C
Flushed and radiant with fame
        G
I wanna lie in a state on the TV
     Bm    
In a golden cardboard crown
        C*
Want to die like a rich boy
                 D            C
Even if we're as poor as we are now


[G - G* - Em - Em*] x 2 


[Verse 3/Outro]

       G
Well I found you now so tear me away
         Em
From the feral street they lumped us in
G
I'll be Shakespeare's moon-struck king
       Em
We can lose our minds at the top of the hill
        C*
We burn cash and carry a decadent flame
    Em                            G
Way into the night and beyond the grave 


[G - G* - Em - Em* - G]

This is Great! Second chord in the chorus should be a Bm though.
