So this is a hard song to play because there's cello and keyboard so i tried to 
things in there.  The song is done on second capo except the bass part.

The part on the cello is

e---0--------------------------------0----------------------|
B---------3p1------0--1--0----------------3p1-------0--1--0-|
G--------------2-------------0------------------2-----------|
D------------------------------2----------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------------|

While that's being played the guitar part is strumming Am, D, then Em

the bass part being played is, though the bass line is not capo'd

G-----------------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------------|
A---2-------4-----------------------------|
E--------------0--------2--------2--4--5--|

That is what is played but if you're just playing one guitar you can encorporate the 
part into the guitar part.  You are strumming almost the whole time during this while 
certain strings.

e---0--0------2---0---0---0------------0--0------2---0-|
B---1--3p1----3---0h1-1---0------------1--3p1----3---0-|
G---2--2----2-2---0---0---0--0---------2--2----2-2---0-|
D---2--2------------------2----2-------2--2----------2-|

         Am          D           Em
I did a sick, sick thing to my love.
              Am          D          Em
My lack of loyalty, it swallowed her up.
                  G
And she cooks me food.
                  Am            D        Em
She squirmed and turned like a skeleton key.
              Am      D         Em
She left her man unattended to me.
                G
Don't call me that.
                 Am
Don't claim you love me
           D               Em
cause you know that ain't true.
                    G
And you're finally free
              Am           D       Em
to twist and turn like a skeleton key.
                     G
You've gotta let me know.
                     G
You've gotta let me know.

I did a horrible thing to that girl.
I bread my misery and drowned it in her.
And she got me high,
And I hardly noticed there were tears in her eyes.

And I miss you less and less everyday.
This stream of whisky helps to wash you away.

And it's clear to see,
You're nothing special.
You're a skeleton key.

You've gotta let me know.
You've gotta let me know.
You've gotta let me know.
You've gotta let me know.

Whooo!
