This awesome song actually is pretty simple. 
It's really just the same pattern of chords repeating over and over again.
The timing on the lyrics is kind of strange though. 
Just listen through song a couple of times and you'll be fine.

F
In New York this morning, 
Gm
it was 8am LA time 
Bb
And I could be there by this evening 
F
Said the girl on the airline line 
F
So I bought that ticket, 
Gm
and I got in that cab 
Bb
But I didn't make it babe
F
To the airport like that

No I wound up walkin' 
Out by the ocean today 
And there were naked women 
Dancing in the Mermaid Parade 
And O Amanda 
did you see me today 
Watchin' those women dancing 
In the Mermaid Parade 
And O Amanda 
were you with me today 
Watchin' those women waltz by 
In the Mermaid Parade

Now our hearts were on fire 
Only two weeks ago 
And our bodies were like live wires 
Down on the beach in Mexico 
But I came back to this city 
And you stayed home in LA 
And then our two years of marriage In two short weeks somehow just slipped away

And I know all about your new man 
Your new older, old man 
And I heard that he’s married 
O you be careful Amanda
And yeah I got a new friend too 
And yeah she’s pretty and she’s small 
But god damn it Amanda 
Ah god damn it all

I went out walkin' 
Out by the ocean today 
And there were naked women dancing 
Dancing in the Mermaid Parade 
And O Amanda did you see me today 
Watchin' those women dancing 
In the Mermaid Parade 
And O Amanda were you with me today 
Watching those women waltz by 
In the Mermaid Parade 
And O Amanda were you with me today, no
Watching those women waltz by 
In the Mermaid Parade


All the way through the song theres both a lead guitar and a piano playing leads.
It's in the key of Dm/F. Just noodle around a bit in this scale and you'll be fine.
