This is right. That's all I gotta say.
If the chord sounds wrong, then it's the voicing.
All of the chords should be correct, the song is just using different inversions.
So instead of the fifth being the highest voice in the chord,
it adds the seventh above that. Stuff like that.
Yay music theory! :P
This is my first tab, but not my first rodeo in regards to transcribing.
If you do see any errors, feel free to tell me. I'm not all that great at
guitar, so the structure of the chords might not be that great.
I just wrote what I heard.

             D                                   Bm
I've been to Tokyo, and to South Africa. So many places,
                                          G
That you may say I've seen it all, but my favorite place
       Gm

Of holdin' your hair back in a bathroom stall.

Woahoho, I guess that's how it's gotta be

I guess that's how it's gotta be

I guess that's how it's gotta be


         D
All that hate is gonna burn you up
            Bm
It keeps me warm at night, warmer than anyone
                  G
I think how many drinks I've had
           Gm
No more in either hand
                      D
I'm slurrin on purpose, and it's certainly worth it
Gm
  O-oh, o-ooooh

Everything I do is bittersweet

So bittersweet


 D
Woahoho, I guess that's how it's gotta be

I guess that's how it's gotta be

I guess that's how it's gotta be


 Bm7                E7
You and me, in a proverbial tree
 Em7b5                           D
It's such a mystery why we're here  (girl I can't live without 'cha)
 Bm7                E7
You became as clear as cellophane
            Em7b5
My voice of reasoning,
   A
I don't think I can take the way you make me out to be

         D
I'm just settin', I'm just setting a trap
            Bm                    Em7b5 (or Gm)
And I'm not pullin', no, I'm not pullin' for ya


 D                  Bm
Everything I do is bittersweet
      G                                           Gm       Gm (2nd)
You can tell me secrets that I'll prob'ly repeat
        D                         Bm
I'm not tryin' to hurt you I just love to speak
  G                              Gm [A7 or Gm 2nd]
It feels like we're pullin' teeth
       D     Bm
So bittersweeeeeeeeeet
   G                             Gm [A7 or Gm 2nd]
It feels like we're pullin' teeth
       D      Bm
So bittersweeeeeeeeeeet
   G                             Gm
It feels like we're pullin' teeth
         D
So bittersweet.

As a side note: the optional A7's don't always happen. Usually it's just going from Gm 
1st inversion to the 2nd inversion. But the A7's add color to the chords that sounds okay.


Have fun! I love this song. And Brendon Urie. ;)
