Quick word on the chords: pluck the bass note on the first beat and strum down and then
on the third and fourth beats respectively, with maybe a light strum up on the second
Can strum all the notes but I find if you just strum the top three (the G,B and e 
it sounds more like the real thing). And when you strum the G and F for two bars in the
strum up instead of plucking the bass note for the second bar. Before the chorus just 
up.

VERSE

Am   Am/E        C              F    F
Gold teeth and a curse for this town
C              G     G
were all in my mouth
     C            F    F
only I don't know how
         Am       G
they got out dear
Am   Am/E    C        F    F
Turn me back into the pet
C             G     G
I was when we met
      C       F
I was happier then
        Am   G    G    G    G
with no mind-set


CHORUS
           G       C
And if you took to me like
 F     C            G     G
a gull takes to the wind
           G           C
then I'd-a jumped from my tree
F            C               F           C
and I'd have danced like the king of the eyesores
       F            C                G            G
and the rest of our lives would have fared well

VERSE

Am  Am/E           C          F         F
New slang when you notice the stripes
    C            G       G
the dirt in your fries
          C              F      F
hope it's right when you die
        Am   G
old and bo---ny
Am   Am/E          C                F      F
Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall
   C              G       G
never should have called
       C             F
but my head's to the wall
        Am   G     G     G
and I'm lo---nely


REPEAT CHORUS exactly as above


(Other versions of the solo aren't quite right, so this is the best
I could come up with, I think it's pretty much there.  I've tried to
get the timing right, but you'll need to listen hard to the song if
you want to play it perfect.)

[1/3 means pluck with first fret held down and slide to 3; 2p0 means
pluck with second fret down and pull off to open string]

Am  Am/E          C         F      F
God speed all the bakers at dawn
    C             G        G
may all cut their thumbs
          C          F
and bleed into their buns
          Am   G     G    G
'til they melt away


CHORUS

            G         C
I'm looking in at the good life
           F      C        G
I might be doomed never to find
          G            C
Without a trust or flaming fields
    F    C       G
am I too dumb to refine
           G         C
and if you took to me like
    F         C               F            C
well I'd have danced like the queen of the eyesores
        F           C                G
and the rest of our lives would have fared well
