Here are some rhythm structures, they're not completely right, but they sound close. The 
are written above the notes.

This one I'll call E5:
   1& 2& 3& 4 &   1 &2 &3 &  4
A|-2--4--5--4-2-|---4--5--5--4-|
E|-0--0--0--0-0-|---0--0--0--0-|

This is A5:
   1& 2& 3& 4 &   1 &2 &3 &  4
D|-2--4--5--4-2-|---4--5--5--4-|
A|-0--0--0--0-0-|---0--0--0--0-|
E|-----------------------------|

For the E-slide, start on the low E string at the 12th fret and tremolo pick while 
down to open.

INTRO:

| G | F# F | E-slide |


VERSE:
           E5
It was the struggle of the century
            A5
And all the grown men came to see
    E5
The girl who could tame the tiger, yeah, yeah
    A5
The heart of the Southern lover
     E5
They found her under the sea
             A5                     A7
She said she came from cell block 3

(On the last A5, stop at measure 2, beat 1&. Replace the remaining notes with A7 in rhythm.)

PRE-CHORUS:

(For the pre-chorus, hit the bass note twice, then the full chord, a total of four times 
chord)

    E7
The girl hit hot like a barracuda baby
    A7
She floated on air like a crest of a wave
          E7
She was a primal institution
          A7
She was a danger to herself, yeah
F#                E
Mad lovin' by the cold hearted
E-slide
Take a deep breath, babe cause we've just started

CHORUS:

The rhythm changes here:

E5*:
   1& 2& 3 & 4 &
A|-2--4--5-5-4--|
E|-0--0--0-0-0--|

A5*:
   1& 2& 3 & 4 &
D|-2--4--5-5-4--|
A|-0--0--0-0-0--|
E|--------------|

E5*            A5*
Mystery Girl, Mystery Girl
E5*                 A5*
Keep on fakin' your mystery world
           E5*              A5*
Cause the mystery boys will be your toys, yeah
    E5*               A5*            G  A  B  E-slide
The mystery boys will be your toys

VERSE:
      E5
Not a day goes by I wanna disappear
  A5
Into her a eyes of mother of pearl
       E5
And my head feels dead from all this useless fightin'
       A5                                 A7
But my heart ain't dead cause it keeps on lovin'

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

OUTRO:

repeat G  A  B over the lyrics

The mystery boys will be your toys, yeah
The mystery boys will be your toys
They'll be your toys, yeah girls
They'll be your toys, alright...

End on E.
