Pretty simple song. Only note worth mentioning would be the walk-ups and walk-downs.
On the fat E string (so there's no confusion) on "cut out the lights" Walk down from A to G#m to F#m to E
(5 - 4 - 2 - 0) That's for the first line. Then basically the opposite as you go into the chorus.
The others walk down from A to G#m to F#m back to G#m  (5 - 4 - 2 - 4) ending on the G#m

Hope y'all enjoy.





A                            A     G#m    F#m   E 
By God won't you please just cut   out    the   lights


[Verse]

E                                     B7
Suzanne won't you help me to draw the line

                                                E
Between floozy women and having cigarettes with wine


                                      B7
There seems to be no room here for my laughter

                                              E
But you never seemed to mind all those nights before

A                            A     G#m   F#m   G#m
By God won't you please just cut   out   the   lights

                 B7
But whatever you do

                          E
Won't you leave my candle burning


[Verse]

E                              B7
Working for nickel down at the armory

                               E
Trying to support my dime life style

                                       B7
The bossman telling me I better get it done

                                            E
What a way to treat the boy who's your only son

                 B7
But whatever you do

                          E
Won't you leave my candle burning


[Verse]

E                                B7
Count your money out on your own time

                                                              E
You stole somebody's heart my dear but it sure as hell wasn't mine

                                 B7
Pick your rags up off my bedroom floor

                                                    E
I done told you one time you're not welcome here no more
