Thanks so much to Eldad T. who originally tabbed this out 
but I felt I might make some changes that much fit better.

I used their tab as a basis for my own

Babe,
C                 Dm   Am  C   Dm Am
there's something tragic about you

something so magic about you
C     Dm  Am    C Dm Am
don't you agree

[Verse 2] (C, Dm, Am)

Babe,
C                 Dm   Am  C   Dm Am
there's something lonesome about you

something so wholesome about you
C     Dm  Am    C Dm Am
Get closer to me

[Bridge 1]
Two quick strums for each chords

Am             G                F   F#  
no tight side, no rolling eyes, no irony
Am              G                 F (hold)
no 'who cares', no vacant stares, no time for me

[Chorus] (C,  Dm, Am,   C, G,   Am, F)
Slide up and down the neck for Am -> C Etc

C      Dm    Am          C    G          Am F
Honey you're familiar like my mirror years ago
C        Dm    Am           C G          Am  F      
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on it's sword
C        Dm    Am             C  G          Am F
Innocence died screaming, honey ask me I should know
C           Dm   Am             C G               Am F
I slithered here from eden just to sit outside your door

something so precious about this
C     Dm  Am    C Dm Am
where to begin

[Verse 4 played on live shows] (C, Dm, Am)
C Dm Am C Dm Am
Babe,
C                 Dm   Am  C   Dm Am
there's something broken about this
Dm         F   G      Dm      F  G
but I might be open about this
C  Dm  Am    C Dm Am
oh what a sin

[Bridge 2]
Am            G                F   F#       
To the strand a picnic plan for you and me
Am              G                 F  (hold)
a rope in hand for your other man to hang from a tree

[Chorus] (C, Dm, Am, G, F)
C        Dm    Am             C  G          Am F
Honey you're familiar like my mirror years ago
C        Dm    Am             C  G          Am F
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on it's sword

(Pause)

C        Dm    Am             C  G          Am F
Innocence died screaming, honey ask me I should know
C        Dm    Am             C  G          Am F
I slithered here from eden just to sit outside your door

C        Dm    Am             C  G          Am F
Honey you're familiar like my mirror years ago
C        Dm    Am             C  G          Am F    
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on it's sword
C        Dm    Am             C  G          Am F
Innocence died screaming, honey ask me I should know
C        Dm    Am             C  G          Am F
I slithered here from eden just to sit outside your door
