Verse:

E  B     C              A       E   B
In muddy grass we stand side by side
         C        A
with our knuckles interlocked
E     B       C         A   E   B
Black dresses flood the c  emetery
        C          A
in this cliche tragedy
A                             A
Just do as you're instructed and....
C              D             A
Take this razor and cut your palms

                         E                B         C
I'll do the same until a river of crimson begins to flow
                   D            A
Now drip your ruby red over the casket
  E              B          A
A funeral for my once loved youth

Pre-chorus:

   E      B          C
My secret is fatally gorgeous
A           A
I'd die for you
            E          B             C
But in this Bonnie and Clyde kind of romance
A               A
tell me what would you do?
   E         B        C
My secret is fatally gorgeous
A        A
I'd die for you
             E         B         C
But when your precious life is at stake
        A         B          C
tell me would you die for me too?

Chorus:

E                 B            C
The quivering liquids in your stomach
                          A
will eat away at the bad habits that have made you
       E                B                   C
a real character in the story of your now distant life
A2               A2
Goodnight and goodbye, quickly

The rest of the song is pretty much just these things repeated (the verse, pre-chorus, 
chorus). Listen to the song and I’m sure you can figure it out. You can also watch my 
cover on Youtube to see how I play it (www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOshpjZ6H7Q). Good luck!

There is a C at the end of every A in the pre chorus, so it should look like this:

E B C
My secret is fatally gorgeous
A A C (played like down-down)
I'd die for you
E B C
But in this Bonnie and Clyde kind of romance
A A C
tell me what would you do?
E B C
My secret is fatally gorgeous
A A
I'd die for you
E B C
But when your precious life is at stake
A B C
tell me would you die for me too?
