   Bm    A D   G   A     Asus2       A
e|-2-2---0-3-3-3-3-----0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
B|-3-3---2-2-2-0-0-----2-0-0-0-0-0-0-2-|

E|-------------3-3---------------------|

Bm             A D     G A Asus2 A
There's a secret stigma, reaping wheel
Bm      A D      G      A Asus2 A
Diminish, a carnival of sorts
Bm         A  D      G     A Asus2 A
Chronic town, poster torn, reaping wheel
Bm      A D        G        A Asus2 A
Stranger, stranger to these parts

Pre-chorus:
G         A                 Bm          A*
Gentlemen don't get caught, cages under cage
G         A
Gentlemen don't get caught

(*Tip: Peter Buck plays this chord and adds some jangling on the high strings live, like this:

   A
e|-0-0-------------|
B|-2---2---3-2-0---|
G|-2-----2-------2-|
D|-2---------------|
A|-0---------------|
E|-----------------|

Also: You can jangle the other chords instead of just strumming them, sounds even 
better. The last G and A chords are played by strumming quickly the low strings.)

Chorus:
Bm     G      A*
Box cars (are pulling) out of town
Bm     G      A*
Box cars (are pulling) out of town
Bm     G      A*
Box cars (are pulling) out of town
Bm     G      A*
Bm     G      A*

(*Note: Peter seems to play the chorus jangling the strings following some pattern that 
I can't figure it out, but you can make it sound fine strumming the chords loosely. Each 
A chord always ends with this phrase:

   A
e|-0-0-0---------|
B|-2-2-2-3-2-0---|
G|-2-2-2-------2-|
D|-2-2-2---------|
A|-0-0-0---------|
E|---------------|)

Bm      A D      G      A Asus2 A

Chronic town, poster torn, reaping wheel
Bm      A D        G A Asus2 A
Stranger, stranger

G         A                 Bm          A
