This is the main riff for the start and various parts of the song.
The riff and chords switch between piano and guitar in the recording 
but it sounds good all played on guitar anyway

Intro: RIFF 1 X 4

Verse 1:
RIFF 1
Sugar town has turned so sour
its people angry in their sleep
There's more small-town paranoia
Sweeping down its evil sheets 

Chorus:
C
You better give me the chance
F
I'll cut you down with a glance
G                               F
Yeh, with my small axe - so help me,
C
And tho' I'm only one
F
And tho' weak I'm strong
G
And if it comes to the crunch
F
Then I'm the woodcutter's son
RIFF 1
And I'm cutting down the wood for the good of everyone!

Verse 2:
RIFF 1
You can tell it's witching hour
You can feel the spirits rise
When the room goes very quiet
And there's hatred in their eyes -

Chorus:
C
You better give me the chance
F
I'll cut you down with a glance
G                            F
Yeh, with my small axe - so help me,
C
And tho' I'm only one
F
And tho' weak I'm strong
G
And if it comes to the crunchThen I'm the woodcutter's son
RIFF 1
And I'm cutting down the wood for the good of everyone!

{SOLO} - RIFF 1 X 4, and some improv in A and D

Verse 3:
RIFF 1  
There's a silence when I enter
And a murmur when I leave
I can see their jealous faces
I can feel the ice they breathe

Chorus:
C
You better give me the chance
F
I'll cut you down with a glance
G                            F
Yeh, with my small axe - so help me,
C
And tho' I'm only one
F
And tho' weak I'm strong
G
And if it comes to the crunch
Then I'm the woodcutter's son
RIFF 1
And I'm cutting down the wood for the good of everyone!
RIFF 1
And I'm cutting down the wood for the good of everyone!

Outro:
RIFF 1 REPEATS X 4, and improvise in A and D for an outro solo

The end of the chorus, I'm not so sure if it's just an F chord on it's own. I play the last line:

F C
I'm a woodcutter's son

strumming twice on each chord. If that helped anything let me know!

The comment above that I wrote for some reason didn't postiton the chords correctly. F is meant to be above woodcutter's and C above son.

Forgive me I am stupid
