I am nearly sick and tired of this song because I've listened to this song on loop 
for three hours now trying to get the right chords...but it's Jack's Mannequin so 
I won't be sick of it for too long (: Enjoy! And I hope these are correct. I just 
did it by ear. But definitely comment if I did anything wrong or you have any suggestions! (:

Standard tuning
No capo

Intro:
F  C  Am  G x2

C
She's a black cat
F                          C
hanging 'round my doorstep

I'll need all day tomorrow
       F	       C
to recover from today

I was boxing with my shadow
       F                        C
At a stoplight when the clocks changed
       F
It was midnight I was mixed up
	 G		    C
When she called to drag the lake


                    F              C
I think I'm running short on inspiration
              G
She's running long on borrowed time
 

	      F
We break with speed
              C		     G
That girl can read my racing thoughts
             F
She asks the questions
	   C
I take the floor
	      G	
She takes her shots
             F       C
Taught her a lesson
                 Am	  G
About a forced confession
	      F
We break with speed
	       C		 G
That girls can read my racing thoughts
   F       C         Am  G
My racing thoughts
   F       C         Am  G
My racing thoughts
 
         C
So I'll try to keep her steady now
     F		            C
But steady's not her strong suit

I was raised going to church
             F                  C
But couldn't practice what they preached

So I'm hiring a DJ
        F       	  C
For the eve of our destruction
       F
It was midnight I was mixed up
	 G	         C
When she found me on the beach
 
 		    F	         C
I think I'm running low on inspiration
	      G
She's running long on borrowed time


	      F
We break with speed
              C		     G
That girl can read my racing thoughts
             F
She asks the questions
	   C
I take the floor
	      G	
She takes her shots
             F       C
Taught her a lesson
                 Am	  G
About a forced confession
	      F
We break with speed
	       C		 G
That girls can read my racing thoughts
   F       C         Am  G
My racing thoughts
   F       C         Am  G
My racing thoughts




(Interlude with the “mmmmmm”s. Strum once for each.)
C  F  C  Am  G  C
 
 
                    F              C
I think I'm running short on inspiration
              G
She's running long on borrowed time
 
	      F
We break with speed
              C		     G
That girl can read my racing thoughts
             F
She asks the questions
	   C
I take the floor
	      G	
She takes her shots
             F       C
Taught her a lesson
                 Am	  G
About a forced confession
	      F
We break with speed
	       C		 G
That girls can read my racing thoughts
   F       C         Am  G
My racing thoughts
   F       C         Am  G
My racing thoughts
   F       C         Am  G
My racing thoughts
   F       C         Am      
My racing thoughts
          G
My racing thoughts

Outro: 
F  C  Am  G x4 end on C

Really great chords! You had it almost 100% right. The only incorrect chords are that it should be an Am (instead of an F) where he sings "It was midnight I was mixed up" in both the 1st and 2nd verses. You identified the Am in other parts of the song, but it belongs there as well.
