This song is fairly easy once you get the rhythm of the chords down. 
This is the main riff that goes throughout all the verses and chorus' in the song-
[Riff 1]                    
     D5                     G      D5              
A|---5-5 / 4---4--4/5-5-----x--x-------------------|
Here's the lyrics and chords, when playing the song use the above riff:

[Intro X2]

                 D5          G          D5    
I could make you scared if I want me to
         I'm not prepared, but if I have to
   He said I can make you scared It's kinda what I do
       If you are prepared to Here is what I propose to do

        D5                     G                D5 
Your in Russia And more than a million works of art 
           Are wisked out to the woods
       and When the Nazis find the hole place dark
            They'd think god's Left the museum for good

            D5               G         D5
I make you scared, if that's what I do
   If you're prepared , if I have to
If I make you scared and you pay me to
If that's the deal Now here's what I can do for you

A                       G         A         
    Now there's a focus group        that can prove
A                      G           D5                        resume riff1
  at the roots this is all nothing but cold calculations
(i think you get the point now)

Tests have shown that suspicious or hostile
Their lives need not be shortened
Truth be told
They can live a long,long wile
Tickled to death by their importance

If you make me scared
If that's what you do
If I'm unclear can I get out of this thing
With me and you
If you feel scared or a bit confused
I gotta say This sounds a little beyond anything I am used to

Now there a precious few
That can prove that at the root
That is all nothing but cold calculations

Clearly entranced you're leaning back now
Defanged destroyer limps into the bay
Down at the beach it's attracting quite a crowd
As kids wade through blood out to it and play

OK you make me scared you did what you set out to do
I'm not prepared , you really had me going there for a minute or two
He said, you make me scared too,
I wasn't sure I was getting through
I gotta go, it's been a pleasure doing business with you. 

repeat riff 1 a couple of times and on 
B|-3---let ring--|


| x  Dead note
| /  Slide up
