I have added chord shapes that I think are more accurate...
see what you think sounds best.
Chords:

--F---or-or--Gm-----D5----Bb6

e-5---5--5---3------5-----3-|
B-6---6--6---3------3-----3-|
G-5---5--5---3------2-----3-|
D-7---7--3---5------0-----3-|
A-8---X--X---X------X-----X-|
E-5---X--X---X------X-----X-|

F            Gm
She's coming over
D5           Bb6
We'll go out walking
F          Gm              D5         Bb6
and make a call on the way

She's in the phone booth now
I'm looking in
There comes a smile on her face

Still got some of the same stuff we got yesterday
Still got some of the same stuff we got yesterday, yeah

I'm too much with myself
I want to be someone else
I'm too much with myself
I want to be someone else
I'm too much with myself
I want to be someone else

So we take off
at Fiona's door
Walkin' till its light outside
Like before when we were on the phone

We have to laugh to look at each other
We have to laugh because we're not alone
As the cars fly up King St.
It's enough to startle us
It's enough to startle us

I love my drug buddy
My drug, my drug buddy
I love my drug buddy
My drug, my drug buddy

END
The chords originally suggested ARE easier to play I admit!
So for sake of completeness, here THEY are:

--F-----Gm-----Dm----Bb6

e-1-----3------1-----3-|
B-1-----3------3-----3-|
G-2-----3------2-----3-|
D-3-----5------0-----3-|
A-3-----5------X-----X-|
E-1-----3------X-----X-|

I have seen the Lemonheads live and he uses a capo at the third fret.
He plays the progression D--Em--Bm--G once and then goes D--C--Bm--G

At times, like when he says i,m too much with myself i wanna be someone else he stays on one D--Em--Bm--G twice before doing the D--C--Bm--G

Also at the end when he sings I love my drug buddy... he does the D--Em--Bm--G twice and then the D--C--BM--G

Listen to the song and you can hear it. I was five feet from Evan Dando when I saw him play this In Salem Mass.
