Can't get these thoughts out of me

Am               Em*
Jenny I'm seeing double

C                 G
I know this changes everything
[X2]

          Am     Em*  C      G
It takes a lot of rain in the cup

          Am     Em*      C       G
It takes a lot of pain to pick me up

          Am     Em*  C      G
It takes a lot of rain in the cup

          Am     Em*      C       G
It takes a lot of pain to pick me up

Am      Em*      C        G
Baby you gave me pain and tears

Am     Em*      C        G
Baby you left me sad and high

the outro is D minor, A minor, F (unbarred) then C but otherwise good tab! The only problem I find is I cant figure out the chords for when they sing the verse starting 'I wont be vacant anymore...'

This song essentially switches between two (implied) chords sequences, starting with:

D / Em / C / C

then at 'this is the last time', it switches to

Am / C / G / G

twice, then back to D / Em / C / C etc...

until the ends which, as Georgenicholas points out, is

Dm / Am / F / C
