Here's the lyrics with the chords being played.  This was the best I could get.
(The following are barre chords, except for the E, which in barre form, is just an E basic chord.)

                    E                                 B        
Well, these legions of lesions that I've aquired
                  E                                 B
Are suggesting the best thing to do is retire
               E
But here comes the dumb thing
        F#
I've got to do something
               A
Or demons of love
             B
Will descend from above
                   E
So I've let go of the rope
                     F#
Yes, I've abandoned all hope
                       A                                B(played hard 4 times)
Before this pushing comes to more shoving

Yeah, stay away from Los Angeles
B(hard)
If what you want to find there is loving 

(Riff 1)
(Riff 2)
                     E                                  B
Now these legions of lesions that we've aquired
             E                                      B
Are suggesting the best thing to do is retire
                    E                                  F#
But here's just a sliver of what they'll deliver
           A                             B
A kick to the head and a shot to the liver
                      E    
So we've let go of the rope
                   F#
Yes, we've abandoned all hope
                   A                                    B(4 times hard)
Before this pushing come to more shoving

Now stay away from Los Angeles
B(hard)
If what you want to find there is loving

(Riff 1)(Riff 2)
Yeah, loving
Alright, loving
Loving 

D=Distortion
                         E(D)
So squash me flat as a dime
              B(D)
In the middle of my prime
                   E(D)             B(D)
With the gentleness of a biblical dove
                     E
So we've let go of the rope
                  F#
Yes, let's abandon all hope
                         A                               B(4 times hard)
Before this pushing comes to more shoving
                     E
Now stay away from Los Angeles, mmmhhmmm
B
Stay away from Los Angeles
E                                                         B(hard)       
Let's stay away from Los Angeles if what you want to find there is loving. 

Alright, loving
Loving
Loving
l-o-v-i-n-g, loving 

(Riff 2)

Not too sure on the solo.  It is kind of weird if you listen to it.  Sounds like a keyboard is used in some of it.  Also the solo has a sort of sliding motion to it.  Didn't tab the solo, but if someone did, let me know.
