[Intro]
Bm   F#m   G   A

[Verse 1]
         Bm
With the money from her accident
    A                       D      D/C#
She bought herself a mobile home
      A                           G
So at least she could get some enjoyment
              Bm      Bm A
out of living alone
             G                         D
No one could say she was left upon the shelf
    A
Its you and me against the world she mumble to herself

[Chorus 1]
C*  G*   D*  A*    C*  G*    D*   B*
         C*          G*    D*         A*      Bm     Bm A
When the world falls apart somethings stay in place
G            A                   Bm    F#m
Levis Stubbs tears roll down his face

[Verse 2]
    Bm                 A                    D      D/C#
She ran away from home in her mother's best coat
        A                      G                Bm     Bm  A
She was married before she was even entitled to vote
        G                        D
And her husband was one of those blokes
             A                      Bm
The sort who only laughs at his own jokes
    G                     D
The sort that a war takes away
               A
And when there wasn't a war he left her anyway

[Chorus 1]
C*  G*   D*  A*    C*  G*    D*   B*
         C*          G*    D*         A*      Bm     Bm A
When the world falls apart somethings stay in place
G            A                   Bm    F#m
Levis Stubbs tears roll down his face

[Bridge]
D      A             G       A
Norman Whitfield and Barratt Strong
    D            A          Bm
Are here to make right everything that's wrong
D           A                  G      A
Holland and Holland and Lamont Dozier too
    A (hold)
Are here to make it okay with you

[Verse 3]
Bm                A                  D    D/C#
One dark night he came home from the sea
          A                 G                    Bm   Bm  A
And put a hole in her body, where no hole should be
            G                               D
It hurt her more to see him walking out the door
                A
And though they stiched her back together they left her heart in
              Bm      Bm A
pieces on the floor

[Chorus 2]
         G                 A                  Bm     Bm A
When the world falls apart somethings stay in place
          G
She takes off the Four Tops tape
A                       Bm      Bm  A
and puts it back in its case
         G                 A                  Bm  Bm   A
When the world falls apart somethings stay in place
G            A        Bm     Bm A
Levis Stubbs tears

[Outro]
G  A  Bm  A

The A isn't quite right. It is sometimes (intro, chorus I think) but other times it's better as Asus2. Although that's still not perfect. Great song though.

Having watched/listened to a live version on YouTube I think the Bridge's chords are:

G (Open) - D (Open) - F#m - G (Barre) x3 [2 beats per chord]
A (Barre) [8 beats]

1st verse 1st line "A" should be "G":
Bm G D D/C#
With the money from her accident She bought herself a mobile home

same goes for 2nd verse:
Bm G D D/C#
She ran away from home in her mother's best coat

and 3rd verse
Bm G D D/C#
One dark night he came home from the sea

Bridge should be:
G D F#m A
Norman Whitfield and Barratt Strong
G D F#m A
Are here to make right everything that's wrong
G D F#m G
Holland and Holland and Lamont Dozier too
A (hold)
Are here to make it okay with you
