This is done by ear, so apologies if not 100% accurate. Sounds ok to me though.....
Just a note , on the chorus, the notes on the riff coincide with the lyrics, so play 
that note on that lyric, just to make it a bit easier for coordination.
Any improvements, let me know thelibertine1986@hotmail.co.uk

Verse (Palm-Muting)

    G
The cool is dead, baby go on and sleep

C
Rest your weary head and lover bury me

G
And in the morning we'll start over again

Em                              C
That's how they do it up on the screen

(Then second guitar plays the riff below palm muted, rhythm no longer palm muted)
    G
See me and my baby we would dance all night

Verse 2 (Palm muting)

    G
For twenty nine years we loved that line

    C
And I would take it easy if I had your mind

    G
But I'm a cannonball to a house on fire

(no chord here)
And you're slow like Motown soul

(Then second guitar plays the riff below palm muted, rhythm no longer palm muted)
    G
So what man wouldn't love her with her long black hair?
