The technique used is travis picking, which is very extensively used in country,
american folk and bluegrass music. Worth checking out some lessons on it if you´re not already
familiar, very adaptive and useful style of playing chords and relatively easy to get 
into. It takes practise though :-)

So, here it is:

C                   G                     Am
I can't spare a moment for the dog faced boy
F                  G                          C
I won't lend another hand to the worm girl of Hanoi
E7                              Am
Don't deplete my oxygen for the guy who's turning blue
     C                 G             C
But ask me, and I'll do anything for you

           C                                  G  G7
Whenever I think of you it only makes me feel sad
Whenever I think of you, the best friend I ever had...
         Bb                 F         C
Before I gave it up all for nothing

        C (alternating C/G bass)
Well, I lied and I cheated
         C          G    G7
And it made me feel bad
It made me feel guilty for not being true
Oh the months I spend trying for a way to explain
In the end all I could do as turn my head in shame

           C         C7     F                             D7
Whenever I think of you, oh darling, it only makes me feel sad
Because you deserve better and once I was it
But somehow my good intentions just got up and git

F                     G          C
So I can´t spare a moment on the dog faced boy
F             G                  C
I won´t lend another hand to the worm girl of Illinois
  E7                                  Am                F
I can´t deplete my oxygen for the one guy who´s turning blue
    C                  G             C
But ask me, and I`ll do anything for you

the line "Before i gave it all up for nothing" doesn't have an F chord before the C, and no Am in the 2nd to last line

Actually it does go to the F before the C. What you're hearing is the melody note staying the same (on a C).

This chart is great. Thanks for the transcription.
