Black Molly

Capo at 2, everything I say here is relative to the capo

The main part is just an E with a descending bass note.
Here's the condensed version of how I play it.
Listen to the song to determine the strumming pattern.
I've broken it out into bars:

E|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0-0-|-0-|
B|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0-0-|-0-|
G|-1-|-1-|-1-|-1-1-|-1-|
D|-2-|-2-|-2-|-2-2-|-2-|
A|-2-|-2-|-0-|-----|-2-|
E|-0-|-0-|---|-4-2-|-0-|

If you prefer, you can keep fretting the 2 on the A string and
instead do 5-4-2 on the E but I find it easier the way I've written it.

Chords:
E  : 022100
G#m: 466444 (Not sure if this is the right chord but it's close)
A  : x02220
B  : x24442
B7 : x24242

E
Black mollies in the aquarium
Darting back and forth as though an earthquake were certain 
And I turned up the heater
And I ripped off my shirt
G#m
And I grabbed hold of my stereo 
A                         B
And I threw it out the window 
E
You were in town again
You'd come around again
E                         B7       E
You were dragging me down again with you 

E
Siamese fish flashing like sparklers 
It started to rain 
And the telephone rang a couple of times 
I put a bullet through its cold dead brain
G#m
and I got out my photographs of you 
A                        B
and I put bullets though all of them too 
E
You were in town again 
You'd come around again
E                         B7       E
You were dragging me down again with you
