Along Came Jones:The Coasters.
#9 in UK and #14 in USA in 1959.

#1.
A
I plopped down in my easy chair and turned on Channel 2.

A bad gunslinger called Salty Sam was chasin' poor Sweet Sue.

He trapped her in the old sawmill and said with an evil laugh,

'If you don't give me the deed to your ranch,

I'll saw y'all in half!'

SPOKEN:(Ad lib.)
Bdim
And then he grabbed her..(and then?)
Ddim
He tied her up..(and then?)
Fdim
He turned on the buzz-saw (and then, and then...?!)

CHORUS:
A
And then along came Jones.
E
Tall thin Jones.
A                   D
Slow-walkin' Jones..slow-talkin' Jones.
E                             A
Along came long, lean, lanky, Jones.

#2.
A
Commercial came on, so I got up to get myself a snack.

You should've seen what was goin' on by the time

that I got back.

Down in the old abandoned mine, Sweet Sue was havin' fits.

That villain said, 'Give me the deed to your ranch,

or I'll blow you all to bits!'

SPOKEN:(Ad lib.)
Bdim
And then he grabbed her..(and then?)
Ddim
He tied her up..(and then?)
Fdim
He lit the fuse to the dynamite..(and then, and then...?!)

CHORUS:
A
And then along came Jones.
E
Tall thin Jones.
A                   D
Slow-walkin' Jones..slow-talkin' Jones.
E                             A
Along came long, lean, lanky, Jones.

#3.
A
I got so bugged I turned it off and turned on another show.

But there was the same old shoot-'em-up and the same old rodeo.

Salty Sam was tryin' to stuff Sweet Sue in a burlap sack.

He said, 'If you don't give me the deed to your ranch,

I'm gonna throw you on the railroad tracks!'

SPOKEN: (Ad lib.)
Bdim
And then he grabbed her..(and then?)
Ddim
He tied her up..(and then?)
Fdim
He threw her on the railroad tracks..(and then?)
Abdim
A train started comin'..(and then, and then...???!)

CHORUS:
A
And then along came Jones.
E
Tall thin Jones.
A                   D
Slow-walkin' Jones..slow-talkin' Jones.
E                             A
Along came long, lean, lanky, Jones.

OUTRO:
E                             A
Along came long, lean, lanky, Jones.(x2)(Fade.)


A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.

Arrangement is correct, and I've learned a lot from a number of your tabs, but aren't there diminished chords(movable sliding shape) in the spoken sections as shown below?

Bdim (x-2-3-1-3-x)
And then he grabbed her..(and then?)
Ddim (x-5-6-4-6-x)
He tied her up..(and then?)
Fdim (x-8-9-7-9-x)
He turned on the buzz-saw (and then, and then...?!)

and an Abdim in the last spoken verse

Bdim (x-2-3-1-3-x)
And then he grabbed her..(and then?)
Ddim (x-5-6-4-6-x)
He tied her up..(and then?)
Fdim (x-8-9-7-9-x)
He threw her on the railroad tracks..(and then?)
Abdim (x-11-12-10-12-x)
A train started comin'..(and then, and then...???!)
