Verse 1 (N.C for most of the verse so these are implied by the melody)

(Am)               (E)                   (C)
  In a town in the woods at the top of a hill
                     (D)      
There's a house where no one lives
(F/C)               (C)                 (D)              (E) 
  So you take a big bag of your big city money there, and buy it
(Am)                    (E)
  Then at night when the house is dark
          (C)                 (D)
And you're all alone there's a noise upstairs
(F/C)              (C)                          (D)                    (E)
  At the top of the stairs there's a door so you take a deep breath and try it
        F/C                  C                Bm7b5           Am
And the flashlight shows you something moving just inside the door
          F/C                  C                D                E
There's a tattered dress and a feeling you have felt somewhere before....

Chorus

Am                          Fmaj7/C
 And there's a creepy doll,  that always follows you
G                              D G    E Am
 It's got a ruined eye, that's always open
Am                          Fmaj7/C
 And there's a creepy doll,  that always follows you
G                              D  G  E   Am    Fmaj7add11/C
 It's got a pretty mouth, to swallow you whole

Verse 2

Am                     E
 So you scream and you close the door
        C                    D
And you tell yourself it was just a dream
F/C                 C                        D            E
 In the morning you head into town cause you want to go antiquing
Am                      E
 In the store there's a strange old man
       C                   D
With a wandering eye and a withered hand
F/C                    C                      D                  E
 When he hands you the old wooden box you can hear his old bones creaking

        F/C                C               Bm7b5           Am
And you know what you will find inside the moment that you see
     F/C                 C             D                E
That someone carved your name into the tarnished silver key

Chorus

Am                          Fmaj7/C
 And there's a creepy doll,  that always follows you
G                              D G    E Am
 It's got a ruined eye, that's always open
Am                          Fmaj7/C
 And there's a creepy doll,  that always follows you
G                              D  G  E   Am   
 It's got a pretty mouth, to swallow you whole

Bridge
    F/C                C                Bm7b5          Am
And when you come home late the doll is waiting up for you
    F/C            C                   Bm7b5             Am
And when you fix a snack the doll says it would like one too
    F/C             G                 F/C              G
The doll is in your house and in your room and in your bed
    F/C             G                F/C              G                C
The doll is in your eyes and in your arms and in your head and you are crazy

|F/C |D7 |F/C |

Verse 3

Am                     E
 Now it's late and you head downstairs
          C                       D
Cause you just can't sleep so you make some tea
F/C                C                     D                     E
 And the doll disapprovingly asks if you really need that much honey
Am                      E
 You decide that you've had enough
        C                    D
And you lock the doll in the wooden box
F/C                     C                      D               E
 You put the box in the fireplace next to your bag of big city money
       F/C   )             C                 Bm7b5           Am
As the smoke fills up your tiny room there's nothing you can do
    F/C              C           D                 E
And far too late you see the one inside the box is you

Chorus
Am                          Fmaj7/C
 And there's a creepy doll,  that always follows you
G                              D G    E Am
 It's got a ruined eye, that's always open
Am                          Fmaj7/C
 And there's a creepy doll,  that always follows you
G                              D  G  E   Am    Fmaj7add11/C
 It's got a pretty mouth, to swallow you whole

Nice work. This is about as good as you're gonna get. JoCo always has some interesting tab work in his songs, and this one is no exception. Thanks for making this accessible to the rest of us. :)
