Hope this is easy to follow, the rhythm of the song is easy, when you know it. Listen to
a live version or a recording for the timing. Play the chords high on the neck, ie
Barre chord B and A, 5th root barre F#m, D and E. In the verse, the F#m and E are an 
upstrum, listen to it and you'll see what I mean. Hope it helps, I've literally just spent 20
mins working it out, I think it's 100%. I'm not sure about the lyrics in the last part 
though :)



B - F#m    A         E           B - F#m
I finally had all my ducks in a row
A   E
B     F#m   A            E       B     F#m
peace and quiet by means of subtraction.
A   E
B       F#m      A           E           B   F#m
And how she got in, I'm not sure that I know.
A    E
B    F#m  A                E        B    F#m
Two weeks on and my spine was in traction
    A            E
my eyes in a basket.

B F#m A E x4

B  F#m         A         E          B   F#m
My gut and my heart are so out of phase
A   E
B        F#m      A               E       B      F#m
And that kind of girl she ain't nobody's daughter
A    E
B        F#m  A              E        B    F#m
I'm just not used to these powerful waves
A    E
B       F#m         A             E         B   F#m
She's shining the brass and I'm taking on water
      A          E
What am I to do now?

D  E          D         E
 I call on a beautiful witch
D        E      D       E         B   F#m
  With a moral compass bait and switch
 A    D

B F#m A E x 3

then (no guitar, but if you want to play, use the same chords as previous verses B F#m A E etc)

Hide from my psychic derailer
Drive this car to the sea
Spend this night as high as I can
up a towering hemlock

B    F#m     A            E        B   F#m
 But it's no use I can always be found
A    E
B   F#m        A          E          B     F#m
A creature of habit has no real protection
A   E
B      F#m        A            E            B   F#m
 I tell her I'll leave if she don't settle down
A   E
B          F#m    A       E         B    F#m
 She sees it's a lie on closer inspection
        A            E
Like everyone else does

(No clue what the lyrics to this section are, album not out for another week, so I'm
taking ones I found online!)

D      E        D        E
Been rubbing a terrible charm
D      E   D     E
Holding smoke in

F#m     B
my arms.
F#m          B
I'm just a simple man
F#m             B
Cursed with an honest heart
D                 E            B
Watch her go and tear it all apart?

B F#m A E x8

then

D      E        D        E
Been rubbing a terrible charm
D      E   D     E
Holding smoke in

F#m     B
my arms.
F#m          B
I'm just a simple man
F#m             B
Cursed with an honest heart
D                 E            B
Watch her go and tear it all apart?

Thanks for the heads up though, if I hadn't realised, I would've when you said :D Guess that's what I get for doing it in the middle of the night! Fixed soon.
