Rufus Wainwright - Going To A Town

The song really isn't that challenging but I've looked up two tabs so far and I 
don't really agree with them so I decided to take out the notes myself.

The chords I use are these: (Most are in this order)

A#m x13321
D#  x68886
G#  466544
C#  x4666x <--- I mute that bottom string
C   x3555x
Fm  133111
G   355233
D#m x68876
F#  244322

And then they're just played in different places... (This is the first tab I've 
written by the way)

Intro

A#m

Verse


    A#m        (I slide to the next chord)       D#
I'm going to a town that has already been burned down

    G#                                    C#
I'm going to a place that is already been disgraced

    A#m                                            C
I'm gonna see some folks who have already been let down.

                Fm
I'm so tired of America

    A#m                                    D#
I'm gonna make it up for all of the Sunday Times
  
    G#                                      C#
I'm gonna make it up for all of the nursery rhymes
     
     A#m                                   C
They never really seem to want to tell the truth

                    Fm
I'm so tired of you America

(Chorus)

          A#m     Fm
Making my own way home

      A#m      Fm
Ain't gonna be alone

        A#m     G
I got a life to lead 

C
America

(Continuously strum A#m)                
I got a life to lead

(Same as Verse just longer)

     A#m                                              D#
Tell me do you really think you go to hell for having loved? (Tell me)
    G#                                               C#
and not for thinking every thing that you've done is good (I really need to know)
     A#m                                  C
After soaking the body of Jesus Christ in blood

   Fm
I'm so tired of America
I really need to know

(Same as verse)

I may just never see you again or might as well
You took advantage of a world that loved you well
I'm going to a town that has already been burned down
I'm so tired of you America

(Chorus changes for last time)

       A#m        Fm
Making my own way home

   A#m         Fm
Ain't gonna be alone

  A#m           G
I got a life to lead 

C
America

(Chorus changes last time)

        A#m       G#
I got a life to lead

        G#      D#m
I got a soul to feed

        D#m      Fm
I got a dream to heed

           F#   C    Fm
And that's all  I    need

(Does the same thing)
     
Making my own way home
Ain't gonna be alone
I'm going to a town that has al-rea-dy been burned down

Sorry dude, it's a bit more complex than just these simple and clean triads.
