F'ing awesome song by Vampire Weekend. And a very simple one too.
The real song uses barre chords but these simple, unbarred chords get the job done...

Intro: C - Em - C - Em - F - C

C        Em    C    Em  
chestnut park on a saturday night
F        C    Em     C
mystical boys feelin alright
C       Em     C     Em      


raggedy wisdom falls from my hand
F      C         Em        F          C
as the ladies of cambridge know who i am
F                                     C  (play chord, then palm mute)
I've held dreams of boston all of my life
F                                   C   
chinatown between the sound of the night
Em                                          F    C 
but if you leave i just don't think i could take it
F    C
take it
F    C
take it
F    C
take it

Repeat Intro: C - Em - C - Em - F - C

C         Em           C         Em
graveyard freaks we're fallin in style
(couldn't find the exact lyrics for this part, sorry)

F                                    C 
I've held dreams of boston all of my life
F                                     C  (play chord, then palm mute again)
chinatown between the sound of the night
Em                                          F    C 
but if you leave i just don't think i could take it
F    C
take it
F    C
take it
F    C
take it

C - Em - C - Em - F - C

F                                     C  (play chord, then palm mute)
I've held dreams of boston all of my life
F                                     C
chinatown between the sound of the night

(for this part play chords slowly & only once)
Em
cos when you left my room
              F
to go to the kitchen 
  G                      C
i imagined that you were dead
Em (play a little faster)
a morbid steak runs through
    Em          F    G
the whole of my family
        F           G         C
but for you i could put it to rest
Em                                          F    C
but if you leave i just don't think i could take it
F    C
take it
F    C
take it
F    C
take it 

and that's it! freaking simple!

Progression is right, but the key is wrong. If you put a capo on the fifth fret and play these chords it will be the same key as the song
