Chorus: Hideous towns made me throw...up! and Stick and stones...
Very simple, quick strum and then arpeggio of the G chord (open or barred)
||3-3-3--3--3--3|---3---3---3--|--------------|--------------||
||3-3-3---3--3--|-----3---3----|--------------|--------------||
||4-4-4-4--4--4-|-4-----4--4---|---repeat 2 more times-------||
||5-5-5---------|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||

go back to simple verse part above, with modifications, then to chorus again, throw in 
another quick verse and chorus again

Middle - heres where the song begins to speed up around 1:43
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||--3-------3---|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||-2--2-2-2-----|--repeat 7 more times--------|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||

then go to quickly strumming the D chord, opening up the hi e string at the start of 
each bar
||-0-2-2-2-2-2--|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||-3-3-3-3-3-3--|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||-2-2-2-2-2-2--|--repeat------|--------------|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||


in the second half of the song, a little bit of extra stuff is added to the verse and 
chorus parts

2nd half verse (make a Bm7 chord shape to play this, throw in variations)
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||-3------------|-3------------|--3-----------|-3------------||
||--------2-----|----------2---|-----------2--|-----------2--||
||-4-2-4--------|-4--2--4------|--4--2--4-----|-2--4---5-----||
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||

2nd half chorus, again start with G chord, but 3rd and 4th bars differ
||3-3-3--3--3--3|--3----3---3--|--0---0----0--|--2---2-----2-||
||3-3-3---3--3--|----3---3-----|---3----3-----|---3----3-----||
||4-4-4-4--4--4-|-4----4---4---|-0---0----0---|-0---0----0---||
||5-5-5---------|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------||

For the ending, around the 3 min mark, start the sped-up middle part again, the A and D 
notes on the B and E strings, and then the D chord.

And around the 3:23 mark, a second guitar playing D and C# notes at a higher octave 
comes in. You incorporate this by playing the D chord like this

||-10-10-10--9-9|--------------|-10-10-10--9--9|--------------||
||-7--7---7--7-7|--------------|-10-10-10-10-10|--------------||
||-7--7---7--7-7|-or like this-|-11-11-11-11-11|--------------||
||-7--7---7--7-7|--------------|-12-12-12-12-12|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|---------------|--------------||
||--------------|--------------|---------------|--------------||

End on a D chord in the 1st position and let ring. Thats it!
