I made some notes at the end regarding the instrumental interlude.
Suggestions welcome.  I don't know what anyone is singing at the end.

         D                        C
You went looking for shelter...in all the wrong spaces
         G                            A
You grew gluttonous and famous...with faces
G                   F#m
Nameless and blank, superstitiously you name them
    Em                           F#m
St. Christopher and Johanna, St. Christopher and Johanna
    G                         A
St. Christopher and Johanna

    D
Overcome with the holiday spirit
C
Mark says the herald angels won't hear it
      G
And remember, the wolves that you run with are wolves
         A
Don't forget
     G                                                    F#m
They exist to give you something to regret, I'll be there too 
               Em 
with something sadder than that brass portrait 
                          F#m
which shines through your morning, dim.
          Em 
Something sadder than that brass portrait 
                          F#m
which shines through your morning, dim

              D
I'll give you something to be sad about
         C
Hey, the picture really capture your mouth
          F#m
Poised to say: It's your turn to go down now,
     G
it's your turn to go down now
A                                  
     It's your turn to go down now. 
     G
It's your turn to go down now...in the spirit of giving
D     Dmaj7   D7   A7* x3   (*see below)
in

G                       D     A
Cloud prayer Mary, come ah----on?  etc


Notes:
*Asterisked chords aren't really chords, just a chromatic riff.
*But you can play G and A7 and get away with it, I think.

I think this is what the guitar plays.  The note in parenthesis is just
meant to be a glimpse of where the repeat it going.

D                 Dmaj7           D7           G*      A7*
----5-------5-------5-------5-------5-------5----------------- repeat
--7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7-------------------  
7-------7-------6-------6-------5-------5------4-3-4-5-6-2-4-6-(7)
--------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------2-1-2-3-4-0-2-4-(5)
--------------------------------------------------------------

The last time a guitar does something like this at the G-A7 spot
(note I changed it to G-D7 here) leading into the G D A part.

G*      D7*      G  D  A
----------------------
8-7-6-5-6---7---(8)---
----------------------
----------------------
----------------------
----------------------

Horns and whatnot do something like this at various times                        
D                Dmaj7           D7            G*      A7*
--------------------------------------------------------------repeat
3-------5---7---2-0--0-2--------1-0---0-1------0--------2-----(3) 
--------------------2---------------2----------------------2--
