This should be 99% correct. I checked out the other chords/versions, but they 
really didn't reflect the song accurately. So here is my take. Enjoy. - Mike

D - xx0232
Bm - x35543
A - x02220
G - 320033
F#/D - 200232

intro Em7 D Bm A x2

[Verse 1]
Em7 D
Am I better off dead?
Bm A
Am I better off a quitter?
Em7 D
They say I'm better off now
Bm A
Than I ever was with her
G Bm A
As they take me to my local down the street
G Bm A
I'm smiling but I'm dying trying not to drag my feet

Em7 D Bm A
They say a few drinks will help me to forget her
Em7 D Bm A
But after one too many I know that I'm never
G Bm A
Only they can’t see where this is gonna end
G Bm A
They all think I'm crazy but to me it's perfect sense

[Chorus]
D
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
A
'Cause I'm shouting your name all over the town
Bm
I'm swearing if I go there now
G
I can change her mind turn it all around
D
And I know that I'm drunk but I’ll say the words
A
And she'll listen this time even though they’re slurred
Bm
Dialed her number and confessed to her
G
I'm still in love but all I heard
Em7 D Bm A
Was nothing

[Verse 2]
Em7 D Bm A
So I stumble there, along the railings and the fences
Em7 D Bm A
I know if I faced her face, that she'll come to her senses
G Bm A
Every drunk step I take leads me to her door
G Bm A
If she sees how much I'm hurting, she'll take me back for sure

[Chorus]
D
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
A
'Cause I'm shouting your name all over the town
Bm
I'm swearing if I go there now
G
I can change her mind turn it all around
D
And I know that I'm drunk but I’ll say the words
A
And she'll listen this time even though they’re slurred
Bm
Dialed her number and confessed to her
G
I'm still in love but all I heard
D
Was nothing
A
She said nothing
Bm G
Oh, I wanted words but all I heard was nothing
D
Oh, I got nothing
A
Oh, I got nothing
Bm G
Oh, I wanted words but all I heard was nothing

(Here's where the 1% I'm not entirely sure of, but it sounds decent..)
(chords in parentheses is the bass line that goes up in the song, then holds at D. 
Listen for the chord progression and everything should be straightforward.) 

(Em7 F#/D G) D
Ohh,           sometimes love's intoxicating
(Em7 F#/D G) D
Ohh,           you're coming down, your hands are shaking
(Em7 F#/D G) D
When you realize there's no one waiting
(Em7 F#/D G) D (then hold D)

Em7 D
Am I better off dead?
Bm A
Am I better off a quitter?
Em7 D
They say I'm better off now
Bm A
Than I ever was with her

[Chorus]
D
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
A
'Cause I'm shouting your name all over the town
Bm
I'm swearing if I go there now
G
I can change her mind turn it all around
D
And I know that I'm drunk but I’ll say the words
A
And she'll listen this time even though they’re slurred
Bm
Dialed her number and confessed to her
G
I'm still in love but all I heard
D
Was nothing
A
She said nothing
Bm G
Oh, I wanted words but all I heard was nothing
D
Oh, I got nothing
A
I got nothing
Bm G
I wanted words but all I heard was nothing
D
Ohh I got nothing
A Bm G (strum out)
I got nothing [x3]
