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)

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?
