Super easy song, really fun to play too. Consists of 2 chords, E's and A's.
Although you can play E7's and A7's and it sounds good too, play whatever you like more.
Personally I like to play E's and A's for the verses, then play
E7's and A7's for the "let 'em all shiver, let 'em all shake" parts

In case you don't know how to play E A E7 or A7 chords, here ya go:
   E|-0-|     E|-0-|
   B|-0-|     B|-2-|
E: G|-1-|  A: G|-2-| 
   D|-2-|     D|-2-|
   A|-2-|     A|-0-|
   E|-0-|     E|-0-|

    E|-0-|      E|-0-|
    B|-0-|      B|-2-|
E7: G|-1-|  A7: G|-0-| 
    D|-0-|      D|-2-|
    A|-2-|      A|-0-|
    E|-0-|      E|-0-|

Also it's in standard tuning, so EADGBe
Now let's get to the song!

-=-=-Halloween Blues by The Fratellis-=-=-

[Start with this for the intro:]
e|----------0--0------------------|
B|----------0--0------------------|
G|----------1--1------------------|
D|----2-----2--2------------------|
A|----2-----2--2------------------|
E|-3b-0-----0--0------------------|
[Then play it without the 2 open E's at the end like so:]
e|-----------------------------|
B|-----------------------------|
G|-----------------------------|
D|----2------------------------|
A|----2------------------------|
E|-3b-0------------------------|

                        E
Well I'm gonna make you love me
                   E
I'm gonna make you wish that you'd never been born
                         A
Now you wish you'd never met me
             E
I can be the joker that you couldn't shake off

                       E
And I'm gonna make you need me
                 E
I'm gonna be the drink that you couldn't put down
                    A
I swear it won't be easy
                        E
'Cause when you got the Halloween blues, there's never a let down


[fun little fill here, goes something like this:]
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------|
D|-2-1-0-------------------------------0-1-2-|
A|-------2-1-0---0-----------0-1-0-1-2-------|
E|-------------3---3---0-3-4-----------------|

e|-----------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-2-1-0-----------------------------------------------|
A|-------2-1-0---0-----------0-1-0-1-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|
E|-------------3---3---0-3-4---------------------------|

                         E
Well I'm gonna make some money
                  E
I'm gonna buy you everything you ever did want
                           A
And it's bound to ruin ya, honey
                  E
But you shouldn't steal what you never could hoard

                     E
And I'm gonna be the fastest
                E
I'm gonna be so quick that you're never quite sure
                          A
If you're tough enough to last this
                        E
'Cause when you got the Halloween blues, there's a guaranteed cure


A7
Let 'em all, let 'em all, let 'em all, let 'em all
E7
Let 'em all shiver and let them all shake
A7
Get 'em all, get 'em all, get 'em all, get 'em
E7
Get them hysterical, keep them awake


                    E
Well I'm gonna be imperious
                 E
I'm gonna be the next Harry Belafonte
                     A
You might as well be serious
                  E
If you've got the answers, you might as well say
                           E
There'll be no one who can thrill me
                   E
There's not a soul alive's got a half of my brains
                              A
But they'll try their best to kill me
                        E
'Cause when you got the Halloween blues, it's best to complain

A7
Let 'em all, let 'em all, let 'em all, let 'em all
E7
Let 'em all shiver and let them all shake
A7
Get 'em all, get 'em all, get 'em all, get 'em
E7
Get them hysterical, keep them awake

In the intro riff, instead of just playing the E power chord, you play the E A and D strings then do a hammer on to make it an E power chord, like this. Also, you play not only the low G but also the higher G.
