Most of the credit for this goes to lostpanda, who posted Version 1, and poisonpancake, 
who transposed the chords for use with a capo.  I am merely re-writing these for 
everyone's ease of use.

***** CAPO 3 *****


      Em
Well, guy in a skeleton costume
G                          C
Comes up to the guy in the Superman suit
                        Em
Runs through him with a broadsword

I flipped the television off
      G                     C
Bring all the bright lights up
               Em
Turn the radio up loud
A
 I don't know why I'm so persuaded
D
 That if I think things through
C
Long enough and hard enough
B
 I'll somehow get to you


             Em
But then you came in and we locked eyes
    A
You kicked the ashtray over as we came toward each other
           C
Stubbed my cigarette out against the west wall
B
 And quickly lit another


Em
Look at that

Would you look at that?
A
 We're throwing off sparks
Em          D         A          Em
What will I do when I don't have you
                      B    Em
To hold onto in the dark?



     Em
Yes, everybody's gonna need a witness
G                               C
Everybody's gonna need a little back up
                       Em
In case the scene gets nasty

You throw the attic window open
      G                       C
And I throw myself all around you
                        Em
And night comes to Tallahassee
A                                   D
 I don't know why it's gotten harder to keep myself away
C
Thought I'd finally beat the feeling back
B
 It all came back today


            Em
And then we fell down and we locked arms
   A
We knocked the dresser over as we rolled across the floor
C
 I don't mean it when I tell you
B
 That I don't love you anymore


Em
Look at that

Would you look at that?
A
The way the ceiling starts to swerve
Em          D         A          Em
What will I do when I don't have you
                             B
When I finally get what I deserve?

Em till the end (bass changes chords, but I think the guitar part plays just the one chord).
