The guitar part is mostly chords, but you can add some twiddles using the high strings –
think the high notes are played by a mandolin on the album.  The strumming is pretty
and you ought to be able to figure it out by hearing it once.  It switches between two 
Am G F E G Am, and Am F G E.

Aaaah! Ooooooooh


[Verse 1]

Am        G             F            E
Yeah oh yeah you seen me walk
      G          Am
On burning bridges
Am        G             F            E
Yeah oh yeah you seen me fall
    G             Am
In love with witches
Am         G             F          E
And you know my head is held
    G         Am
Inside by stitches
Am       G          F         E
Yet you know I did survive
                  G         Am
All of your lovely sieges


[Pre-Chorus]

Am                                       F
And you know that I'll pick up
                          G
Every time you call
                                            E
Just to thank you one more time


[Chorus]

G     Am (anytime Eugene sings the word “alcohol” in the song, it falls on these chords)
Alcohol
Am G F E G     Am
                  Alcohol
Am G F E G     Am
                  Alcohol


[Pre-Chorus]

Am                                     F
And you know that I'll survive
                          G
Every time you come
                                            E
Just to thank you one more time
For everything you've done


[Chorus]

Am G F E G Am
Aaaaaah!
Alcohol
Alcohol
Aaaaah!


[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

I am sorry some of us
Given you bad name
yeah o yeah, cause without you
Nothing is the same
Yeah o yeah I miss you so
Every time we break up
Just to hit a higher note
Every time we make up


[Pre-Chorus]
(same chords)

And you know that I'll pick up
Every time you call
Just to thank you one more time


[Chorus]
(same chords)

Alcohol
Alcohol
Alcohol


[Verse 3]
(same as verse 1)

So you know I will survive
Every time you come
Just to thank you one more time
For everything you've done
Aaaaaah!


[Instrumental]

Am G F E G Am (x8)

Alcohol (x4)


[Bridge]

Am      G           F         E         G    Am
Who is crawlin' up my spine - alcohol
I was waiting long long time - alcohol
Now you teach me how to rhyme - alcohol
Just don't stab me in the back with a cortisol

Now forever reunite - alcohol
Now you teach me how to rhyme - alcohol
Screw a light bulb in my head - alcohol
may that ceremony be happy or sad


[Pre-Chorus]

And you know that I'll pick up
Every time you call
Just to thank you one more time
For everything you've done

And you know that I'll pick up
Every time you call
Just to thank you one more tiiiiime

Alcohol


[Instrumental]

Am G F E G Am (x5)
