About this tab version
These chords are accurate from how they're played in the original album recording. Some of the chords might be simplified, such as the E minor and the B7 in the beginning of the bridge. They are however optimal to play on a simple level and they do sound very right in the song. No other changes were made. Link to song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tx7a1n3K2ow.

[Intro] F C F C Dm F C G7 C

[Verse 1]
F                       F7                  F
Captured by Hitler with Oliver Twist in the tower
             C                                                    F
Guards say: "Here's pens and paper, just sit down and work for an hour"
   C                                           Dm       
O, Goodness, how can we escape? But it's not worthwhile
F                C
All I can do is smile.

[Bridge]
       Em                                        B7
Down gallons of glandular corridors of the dark castle
                                        G Dm 
The pompous old bellman is tolling one bell

[Verse 2]
F                          F7                            F
At bathtime the hippies in chains they are crossing the hall
        C                                     F
Where Hitler is making his new film about it all
    C                                             Dm
We slip trough a pew and escape but I just don't know
F                C
All I can do is grow

[Chorus]
D        C     G    C
Tell me more, what then

[Verse 3]
     F                      F7                 F
Down Main Street I go on a duffel-coat hoping instead
        C                                                              F
For a little room, yawn, I'm so tired with this big bag of coal on my head
       C                                          Dm
It's a top hat I'm trying to sell or a lesson to learn
  F                           C
Vaguely seeking some fire to burn

[Bridge]
         Em                                                                    B7                        G Dm
While a group of middle-aged persons with dwarfish expressions and tinned conversations in Sunday blessed blue
  
[Verse 4]
 F                        F7                  F                   
Standing around for a photograph, watch the cuckoo
        C                                             F
Do you need any coal? But it doesn't appear that they do
        C                                              Dm
Then I offered my throat to the wolf but I just can't die
F                C
All I can do is fly

[Instrumental] F C F C Dm F C G7 C

[Chorus]
D        C     G    C
Tell me more, what then 

[Verse 5]
 F                      F7                      F
Safe and secure in the skirts of the midsummer wood
         C                                                     F
Cooking soup with stale words and fresh meanings it tastes so good
           C                                            Dm
The green wolf with his bunch of red roses is slinking away
F                  C
All on a summer's day.
