Please pay careful attention to the chord change timings.
I lifted the chords and lyrics straight from the Pogolith #00
booklet. You can swap the Am7 for an Am and not hear much of a difference.

[Verse 1]

Am7                   E7            C
The time has come for colds and overcoats.
                   F
We're quiet on the ride,
               G7             Am
we're all just waiting to get home.
             E7                C
Another week away: my greatest fear.
                    F
I need the smell of Summer.
           G7           Am
I need its noises in my ears.
                      E7
If looks could really kill,
           C
then my profession would be staring.
         F                G7
Know we do this cause we care
            Am
not for the thrill.
                 E7
Collect calls to home
                    C
to tell them that I realize
                  F                  G7
that everyone who lives will someday die
        C 
and die alone.


[Chorus 1]

       C2            F2
And we won't let you in.
                      G2
Though we're down and out.
                    Am  E7
No we won't let you in.
    Am  E7      Am  E7       Am  C
You in,     you in,      you in.


[Verse 2]

Am7                         E7
I wrote more postcards than hooks.
                      C
I read more maps than books.
                            F
I feel like every chance to leave
           G7                   Am
is another chance I should have took.
                  E7
Every minute is a mile.
                   C
I've never felt so hollow.
                     F                  G7
I'm an old abandoned church with broken pews
          Am
and empty aisles.
                 E7
My secrets for a buck.
                    C
Yeah, watch me as I cut myself wide open
        F                G7
on this stage. Yes, I am paid
            Am                          E7
to spill my guts. I won't see home till spring.
            C
Oh, I would kill for the Atlantic,
         F                  G7
but I am paid to make girls panic
        C
while I sing.


[Chorus 2]

       C2            F2
And we won't let you in.
                      G2
Though we're down and out.
                    C2
No we won't let you in.
                     F2
And we won't let you in.
                         G2
We don't want what isn't ours.
                 Am  E7
We won't let you in.
     Am  E7      Am  E7      Am   
You win,    you win,    you win.


[Bridge]

C                        Am
And the coastline is quiet.
                               E7
While we're quietly losing control. And we're silent but sure
   G7                                      
we invented the cure that will wash out my memories (of her).
Am                          E7
"The harpoon is loaded. The cage is lowered.
    G7
The water is red."
      Am  E7     Am   E7        Am   E7
Like you,                  like you.


[Chorus 3]

       C2            F2
And we won't let you in.
                      G2
Though we're down and out.
                    C2
No we won't let you in.
                     F2
And we won't let you in.
                         G2
We don't want what isn't ours.
                 Am  E7
We won't let you in.
    Am   E7     Am   E7      Am   C      
You win,    you win,     you win....    yeah.
