[Verse]

         Am
If I didn't know better I'd hang my hat right there
   E                       Am
If I didn't know better I'd follow you up the stairs
 
Stop saying those sweet things you know I like to hear
     E                            Am
The horns are blowing louder and they're destroying me
 
    
[Chorus]

  Dm         Am    
    Why do I keep drinking
   Dm              Am
    Wasting my time on you
       Dm       E
    If I didn't know better
    But damnit
      Am
    I do
 

[Verse]

There's a hole in what you're saying
 I can plainly see
 You have a lover that's waiting but baby you're right here with me
 
Ooh
 You might as well be the devil
 Oh
 Keeping me out past three
 Oh
 You're the one with that apple so baby you can't blame me
 

[Chorus]

Why don't you keep drinking
 Get me one night with you
 If I didn't know better
 But damnit
 I do

I think the words for the last line of of the first verse are:
The horns are blowing louder and the bailliff's drawing near

It took listening to several versions and checking several web sites to figure that one out. :-)

I think the Am is toggled on the first fret throughout the song and he hits the bass notes between the strum pattern to create a beat.
