This song's been out for a while, obviously, 
but I just recently dug it back out to let it break my heart again and decided to learn it.
Couldn't find chords anywhere online, so I had to figure it out myself. 
(way to let me down internet D: )

Intro: D

D
Old black hen is that you again
            Bm
singing the bad luck lullaby
D
come right on in cause it's midnight again
             Bm
time for the bad luck lullaby
Em
you know the one it's the same one you sung
Em              G            D        A   
when you wrote down the revelation

Bm D A 
Bm D A 

D
now sing it over the cradle of the child who's born next
Bm
the bad luck lullaby
D
leave all the truth in so they know what comes next
         Bm
with the bad luck lullaby
Em
leave in the true love that they'll never find  
Em                              G            D     A  
show how they're looking for it all of their lives 

Bm D A 
Bm D A 

D
when I saw the banner hanging over my door
              Bm
and heard the bad luck lullaby
D
I already knew who the party was for
    Bm
the bad luck lullaby
Em
and all of my pain found a partner in that room
Em                   G               D    A  
and the Devils tail swayed with the tune

Bm D A 
Bm D A

[instrumental verse, same chord progression as the others]

Bm D A
Bm D A

D
make that black record roll the tapes all night long
    Bm
the bad luck lullaby
D
make that black record and we'll all sing along
       Bm
to the bad luck lullaby
Em
look down the long street and see who's that crying 
Em                                     G
tell them that every day I lived I was trying 
D                           A          
to sing the blues the way I find them

Bm D A
Bm D A
