This is how I usually play it, not too sure if this exactly how they play it, but it sounds all right.

[Intro] Am(1), Am(1), Am(1), E(1)

[First Verse]
Am(1)
She paints her fingers with a close precision
Am(2)
He starts to notice empty bottles of gin
Dm                                         Am(1)         E
And takes a moment to assess the sins she's paid for
Am(1)
A lonely speaker in a conversation
Am(2)
Her words are swimming through his ears again
Dm              E(1)
There's nothing wrong with just a taste of what you paid for

[Pre-Chorus]
F            C                 E
Say what you mean, tell me I'm right
            Am       G6      F
And let the sun rain down on me
          C             E
Give me a sign, I wanna believe

[Chorus]
F
Whoa, Mona Lisa
Am                   G6
You're guaranteed to run this town
F
Whoa, Mona Lisa
C                  E
I'd pay to see you frown

[Second Verse]
Am(1)
He senses something, call it desperation
Am(2)
Another dollar, another day
Dm                 E(1)
And if she had the proper words to say
            Am(1)
She would tell him
    (stop)                       Am(1)x3    Em(1)
But she'd have nothing left to sell him

[Pre-Chorus]
F            C                 E
Say what you mean, tell me I'm right
            Am       G6      F
And let the sun rain down on me
          C             E     
Give me a sign, I wanna believe

[Chorus]
F
Whoa, Mona Lisa
Am                   G6           
You're guaranteed to run this town
F
Whoa, Mona Lisa
C                 E
I'd pay to see you frown

[Bridge]
Am(1), Am(2), C, E

Am   F5    C       E
Mona Lisa, wear me out
Am         F5         C, E
Pleased to please ya
Am   F5    C       E
Mona Lisa, wear me out

[Pre-Chorus]
F            C                 E 
Say what you mean, tell me I'm right
            Am       G6      F
And let the sun rain down on me
          C             E
Give me a sign, I wanna believe

[Chorus]
F
Whoa, Mona Lisa
Am                   G6           
You're guaranteed to run this town
F
Whoa, Mona Lisa
C                  E
I'd pay to see you frown

[Outro]
F                              Am
Say what you mean, tell me I'm right
            G6            F
And let the sun rain down on me
                        C    E      Am
Give me a sign, I wanna believe

The G6 doesn't sound quite right... Aside from that, this is pretty cool! :D
What's the strumming pattern?
