Standard tuning w/o capo, 4/4 measure.
This is my attempt at tabbing out the acoustic version John played on the toilet. It's
not 100% but it should do.
Lyrics are from (they are inaccurate, I know), all rights belong to the
pAper chAse of course.

chords used:
Am       x02210
Asus2    x02200
F        x3321x (not A bar chord)
Fadd11   x3320x
C        x32010
Cm7      x32000
G        3x0003 (that's the way he plays it)
Em       022000
Fm       x3311x (may be a bit tricky, you can play it as a bar chord)
"G1"     3xxxxx
"A"     x0xxxx

These chords inbetween (Asus2, Fadd11, C7M) are played by simply releasing the first
fret on the B string ("Congleton's" F allows that). This theme is later repeated in the
chorus etc. where he played just Am-F-C-G, but you can play it the same way as the intro 
if your coordination is good enough.

C                             Em
On the day Chicago locked its doors for good
C                                Em                 G1       A
Our headless chickens pushed and pecked along their Southbound route
F                     Fm
To cluck the atrocity, their beaks are posturing
       C                Em
At and old vampire; the forest fire
F                              G
Any day our windy city's gonna blow it out for you

Am                          F                                 C
I'll keep a horseshoe on my step, I'll keep a cross around my neck
While draping garlic above our bed
Am                         F                                     C
All good luck, amulets and aids will dab your forehead, keep you safe
From the forest fire rage
F                           Fm
Our fine crystal will cling, we'll drink to anything
      C                          G                          C
If it keeps the highways moving, keeps commuting smooth for you
F             G                     C
I'm drawing a bloodbath with or without you

(replay intro twice)

C                                Em
On the day the fire nibbled your neighborhood
C                                   Em
We guard our brimstone as if it was gravestone
          G1        A          F                          Fm
While the blaze was blown loose, our cottage knees shaking
                                  C                   Em
The flames were giggling with the embers beaming, its chest its beating
F                         G
That little house we made gets gobbled up by flames

Am                            F                                  C
I'll mash my foot down on the gas of any black cat that cross my path
Than to risk it and lay it in my lap
Am                         F                                 C
We keep our umbrellas down here, we toss the salt behind our ears
The good looks weren't worth the seven years
F                          Fm
With tightly coiled springs that snap for anything
            C                     G                       C
We're gonna keep a lighter to it, even while it burns for you
F            G                  C
I'm going to heaven with or without you

(repeat intro)

Am                          F                                 C
I'll keep a horseshoe on my step, I'll keep a cross around my neck
Draping garlic above our bed
Am                       F                                      C
All ladder legs we walk around, no burning flags will touch the ground
The same one that our cracks we found, and I swear to God...
Am                         F                                        C
I'll bury a bible in these halls, I'll bury a black cat between the walls
Good luck, Godspeed, God damn you all

(repeat intro twice + God damn you all)
end with A C
