      Gm
Well, guy in a skeleton costume
Bb                         Eb
Comes up to the guy in the Superman suit
                        Gm
Runs through him with a broadsword

I flipped the television off
      Bb                    Eb
Bring all the bright lights up
               Gm
Turn the radio up loud
C
 I don't know why I'm so persuaded
F
 That if I think things through
Eb
Long enough and hard enough
D
 I'll somehow get to you
             Gm
But then you came in and we locked eyes
    C
You kicked the ashtray over as we came toward each other
           Eb
Stubbed my cigarette out against the west wall
D
 And quickly lit another
Gm
Look at that

Would you look at that?
C
 We're throwing off sparks
Gm          F         C          Gm
What will I do when I don't have you
                       Bb    Gm
To hold onto in the dark?

     Gm
Yes, everybody's gonna need a witness
Bb                             Eb
Everybody's gonna need a little back up
                       Gm
In case the scene gets nasty

You throw the attic window open
      Bb                      Eb
And I throw myself all around you
                        Gm
And night comes to Tallahassee
C                                   F
 I don't know why it's gotten harder to keep myself away
Eb
Thought I'd finally beat the feeling back
D
 It all came back today
            Gm
And then we fell down and we locked arms
   C
We knocked the dresser over as we rolled across the floor
Eb
 I don't mean it when I tell you
D
 That I don't love you anymore
Gm
Look at that

Would you look at that?
C
The way the ceiling starts to swerve
Gm          F         C          Gm
What will I do when I don't have you
                             Bb    
When I finally get what I deserve?

Gm

Pretty accurate chord wise but may I recommend you transpose this into being played with a 3rd fret capo.

Only real correction I have is that the Bb in the chorus is actually an A.

Once you amend the wrong chord I'll 5 star it.

The Bb chord at the end of the verse should be a D. also, it sounds as if at least at the beginning of the song the Gm is actually G major, but the Gm works fine enough.

For a capo on the third fret: Gm = Em, Bb = G, Eb = C, C = A, F = D, D = B.

John's quite partial to the melodic minor scale, which is an aeolian scale with a raised 6th (in this case, Eb raised to E) and a raised 7th (F to F#), which would make the C and D chords major, but only on the way up the scale, on the way down the scale it's regular aeolian, which is why the Eb and Bb chords work (they would be Edim and Bb+ otherwise) don't blame me, it's all because of bach.
