Verse 1:
     G      F      D
The statue got me high
     G      F      D  
The statue got me high
     G    F       C      D      C    Em      D
The monument of granite sent a beam into my eye
     G      F       D                          
The statue made me die                         
     G      F       D                          
The statue made me die                         
    G       F        C        D      Em      F      G
It took my hand it killed me and it sent me to the sky

Chorus:
     Em        C       D
The stone it called to me
      G     Em       C         Em        C    C   D  D
(And now I see the things the stone has shown to me)  
   Em        C       D                                
A rock that spoke a word                              
    G   Em    C   Em    C   C    D  D                 
(An animated mineral it can be heard)                 
     Em       C        D       G     C       Em   D
And though I once preferred a human being's company
      Em     C        D    G        C      Em  D   
They pale before the monolith that towers over me  

Verse 2:
The statue got me high
The statue got me high
The truth is where the sculptor's chisel chipped away the lie
The statue made me fry                                       
The statue made me fry                                       
My coat contained a furnace where there used to be a guy                         

Chorus 2:
The stone it called to me
(And now I see the things the stone has shown to me)
A rock that spoke a word                            
(An animated mineral it can be heard)               
And as the screaming fire engine siren filled the air
The evidence had vanished from my charred and smoking chair

Post Chorus 1:
     Em        D         G      C
And what they found was just a statue
Em       D          G     D      C     D
Standing where the statue got me high   
     Em        D         G      C       
And what they found was just a statue   
Em       D          G     D      G      
Standing where the statue got me high   

Sax Solo:

Chorus 3:
And now it is your turn
(Your turn to see the stone and then your turn to burn)
The stone it calls to you                              
(You can't refuse to do the things it tells you to)    
And as the screaming fire engine siren fills the air
The evidence will vanish from your charred and smoking chair

Post Chorus 2:
And what they found was just a statue
Standing where the statue got me high   
And what they'll find is just a statue  
Standing where the statue got you high

Those e-minors in the 2nd and 4th lines of the chorus should be a-minors.

Actually, after the first line of the chorus, I think it's:
G-G Am-Am C-C- Dsus4-Dsus4 D-D-D-D
