This is my personal favorite song by my personal favorite band. I encourage you to buy 
their stuff.

Some other tabs have said capo on the 5th, I use it on the 4th. I'll leave it up to you 
which sounds better.

For lack of a better term, I'll refer to this as C7, but I know it's not. Simply play a 
C, but lift your first finger. Whatever the hell it is, play it like this:

Together the verse line will be:
C C7 Am G

That being said, here it is:

C         C7      Am      G
Missy got off the bus one day
     C          C7        Am     G
In a crowded depot in downtown L.A.
    C        C7      Am    G        F
She looked around as if to say "I'm home"
But I'm home.
       C           C7            Am       G
I find someone to love and some place to drink
         C        C7          Am       G
And some time when I can just sit and think
       C         C7    Am       G               F
And I don't mind if I catch the stink of these drones
Lord of these drones
        F                   G
Said as long as I'm never alone
F     C

C               C7     Am         G
She had eyes as big as porceline plates
    C       C7       Am    G
And skin as thin as paper drapes
        C         C7             Am        G     F
And she loved the lord the way an apostate loves songs
F     C
          C       C7             Am       G
And she'd sing to him before she went to sleep
   C       C7     Am      G
"I pray to you my soul to keep
     C       C7       Am       G           F
Your shepard and I'll be your sheep until dawn
Oh until dawn"
          F                              C G F C
She said "I'd follow you even if it was wrong"

C             C7           Am      G
I met her one night at the coffee shop
    C        C7      Am           G
Her face so wide my heart just stopped
   C     C7     Am       G           F
Hello my dear I fear I'm not what I seem
I'm not what I seem
   C        C7     Am     G
I should've been a better man
  C          C7     Am       G
I should be more deserving than
    C        C7        Am     G         F
The beggar, thief, and courtesan I've been
Oh that I've been
F                                        C G F C
But I swear, I lie, I curse all of my dreams

       C            C7         Am      G
But I swear there's still some good in me
       C         C7     Am         G
If you stuck around I think you'd see
         C        C7          Am      G         F
All the honest attempts at integrity I've been had

C             C7                Am     G
Maybe if you helped me I could get it right
  C     C7  Am    G
I lie awake every night
C              C7       Am             G        F
Staring at the cieling wondering why I feel so bad
Why I feel so bad
F                                             C G F C
But I swear, I swear, I swear I'll never get sad

End on C

That's about it. If it doesn't sound right, you're probably playing a real C7 instead of 
lifting your first finger. Hope this helped.
