Here's another version of Regina Spektor's Samson, I've used a capo to make the 
chords a bit easier.
Any queries/feedback, leave a comment. Cheers!


Standard tuning, capo 4th fret
Cadd9

Here are the chords I used

G       320033 (OR  320003)
Am      002210
C       032010  OR  032013 – sometimes it's audible on the track, but not important
Cadd9   032030  OR  032033
C?      x32032 – I'm not sure what this chord is, but I think this is right
D       x00232 – sometimes Dadd9 is used as a sort of passing note
D/F#    200232 - sometimes it's audible on the track, but not important
Em      022000  OR  022003 - sometimes it's audible on the track, but not important


[Intro]

G


[Verse]

G       Am       G      Cadd9
    You are my sweetest downfall
(C)    D        Em       D          C 
    I loved you first, I loved you first
                G         Am     G        Cadd9
    Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
(C)    D     Em     D      C 
    I have to go, I have to go
                   C?               C 
    Your hair was long, when we first met

C?


[Chorus]  

    D  Em       G
    Samson went back to bed
                       C 
    Not much hair left on his head
       D     Em       G                                    D
    He ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed
        D       Em       G                                  C          
    And history books forgot about us and the bible didn't mention us
            G     D/F#   Em                    C          
    And the bible didn't mention us, not even once

D G   D  C  (the first D chord is more of a passing note)


[Verse]

G       Am     G     Cadd9
    You are my sweetest downfall
(C)    D         Em      D           C 
    I loved you first, I loved you first
                G            Am     G       Cadd9
    Beneath the stars came fallin' on our heads
(C)              D        Em            D          C         
    But they're just old light, they're just old light
                   C?                C 
    Your hair was long when we first met

C?


[Chorus]  

    D  Em       G
    Samson came to my bed
                      C 
    Told me that my hair was red
     D      Em    G                          D
    Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed
         D       Em     G          
    Oh I cut his hair myself one night
                                   C 
    A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
           C                 G
    And he told me that I'd done alright
        G         D        Em                 C
    and kissed me 'til the mornin' light, the mornin' light
           G         D        Em             C
    and he kissed me 'til the mornin' light   

D G   D  C  (the first D chord is more of a passing note)


G  D  Em 


    D  Em       G
    Samson went back to bed
                         C 
    not much hair left on his head
    D     Em        G                                  D
    Ate a slice of wonderbread and went right back to bed
           D        Em                 G
    Oh, we couldn't bring the columns down
                                C 
    Yeah we couldn't destroy a single one
                         G
    And history books forgot about us
             G    D/F#   Em                    C          
    And the bible didn't mention us, not even once....


D G   D  C  (the first D chord is more of a passing note)


[Outro]

G       Am       G     Cadd9
    You are my sweetest downfall
(C)    D        Em    
    I loved you first

In the chorus, if you're doing this on the fourth fret, it would go G Am G- it'd go G, Am, Bm, C

EXCUSE ME. It would NOT go G Am G, the base line moves up, so it would be: G, AM, Bm, C. Ignore my last post.
