[INTRO]:

C7
Well! [x4]

[VERSE]:

C7                                Eb 
  We spun like birds on fire right down towards the residence and I
  C7                            Ab7                         G7             
I took all that I desired, even crooks have to pay the rent.
C7                               Eb
  We swam like rats on fire right, right down the reservoir
C7                                       Ab7            G7
  We took all that we could carry but we tried to carry more.

[BRIDGE]:
        C7                                 Ab7   G7
And you know you know you know it all went wrong.
        C7                                 Ab7   G7
And you know you know you know it was all wrong.

[VERSE] 
C7                                          Eb 
  We choked on straight tap water well I'm gonna have to try the real thing
  C7                                Ab7             G7    
I took your laugh by the collar and it knew not to swing.
C7                                       Eb 
  Anytime I tried an honest job well the till had a hole and ha-ha
    C7                                   Ab7                 G7    
We laughed about payin' rent 'cause the county jails they're free.

[BRIDGE] 
        C7                                 Ab7   G7
And you know you know you know it all went wrong.
        C7                                 Ab7   G7
And you know you know you know it was all wrong.

[CHORUS]:
C7
Deep Water, Deep Water
Ab7         G7
Senseless Denial
       C7                   Ab7           G7
I went down like a rag doll as you would, child
C7
Deep Water, Deep Water
Ab7         G7
Senseless Denial
       C7                   Ab7           G7
I went down like a rag doll as you would, child

REPEAT THE CHORDS FOR THE REMAINING PARTS OF THE SONG

[VERSE]
Oh, lucky lucky lucky lucky me again.
I said it looks like I've got to use my feet again
Well I just spent my last one-hundred dollars
God I'll pay my bill again

Oh, I don't care
Oh, how I just don't care.

[CHORUS]
Deep Water, Deep Water
Senseless Denial
I went down like a rag doll shooken and shy
Deep Water, Deep Water
Senseless Denial
I went down like a rag doll rat of a child

[VERSE] 
Well King rat has me on his list again
I can never be on the fence again
I found out it's all loud
Open like an organ and it
talk, talk, talk, talk again
he promised me that when I cheated him
But I could open my eye well...
lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky,
lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again.

[CHORUS] 
Deep Water, Deep Water
This Senseless Denial
I got fed like a fish, full of open smiles
Blue Water, Deep Water
Oh Senseless Denial
I got fed like a fish on the cardboard smiles

[OUTRO] - FOR THE OUTRO, PLAY THE VERSE CHORD PROGRESSION
Well Well...
What do you have to say for yourself?
I said, well well
Well?
I said well, well, well, well!

Lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again.
I hardly knew I should use my feet again
What do you have to say for yourself?
What do you have to say for yourself? 

END ON C7 AND FADE OUT

That "C7" is actually called a "Cm7". That threw me off a bit, but otherwise, it's a great tab. Top Notch song. Also, When I play the Eb chord, I like to throw a D in as a complementry bass note on the 5th string.

Lack of accuracy. The cords don't seem right, the tune just doesn't match when i'm singing it. It seems like the first two chords of the song don't match with the next two.

how he/she has them tabbed out above is correct, they just missed the minor in the Cm7.

Cm7 Eb (or just play the bar) Ab7 G7
E| 3 3 (6)
B| 4 4 (8)
G| 3 3 (8) 5 4
D| 5 5 (8) 4 3
A| 3 6 (6) 6 5
E| 4 3
