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.

     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

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

        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

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.
