Verses and Choruses:

Use these shapes for Am and E. You can try to add a flat 7th to the E for emphasis.
   Am  E   E7  E7
e|-5-|-4-|-4-|-4-|
B|-5-|-5-|-5-|-3-|
G|-5-|-4-|-4-|-4-|
D|---|---|-0-|-2-|
A|---|---|---|---|
E|---|---|---|---|

The chords follow a reggae style rhythm, like:

1  e  &  a  2  e  &  a  3  e  &  a  4  e  &  a  
------Am-Am-------Am-Am-------Am-Am-------Am-Am

And the chord pattern:

Am
Start wearing purple, wearing purple
                            E/E7
Start wearing purple for me now

All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish, I promise
                      Am
It's just a matter of time
                            Am
I know you since you were a-twenty, I was twenty,
                                 E/E7
and thought that some years from now

a purple little little lady would be perfect
                          Am
for dirty old and useless clown.

--------------------------------------------

So that's more or less the entire song. If you want to solo(?), you can get
away with A harmonic/natural minor and E phrygian, phrygian dominant, or Arabic.
Key: A minor
Tempo: 97 bpm
