Tuned a full step down

Intro: Em* - D* - C* - A7

 Vs1
   C*    C#/D      C*    G*
   Everything is exactly right when I 
   C*    C#/D       C*          G     
   Walk around here drunk every night
           Em      F#          C#/D   C*
   With an open container from Seven Eleven
      C#/D       C&
   In St. Ides Heaven    

 Vs2
   I been out haunting the neighborhood
   And everybody can see I'm no good
   When I'm walking out between parked cars
           C#/D         A7
   With my head full of stars

 Chorus
   C    D     Em  G
   High on amphetamines
                 C     D     Em  G
   The moon is a light bulb breaking
             C     D    Em  G
   It'll go around with anyone
                     C    D   Em  G
   But it won't come down for anyone

   [Solo - Just the Chords Essentially]

 Vs3
   You think you know what brings me down
   That I want those things you could never allow
   You see me smiling you think it's a frown
   Turned upside down

 Vs4
   Cause everyone is a fucking pro 
   And they all got answers from trouble they've known
   And they all gotta say what they should and shouldn't do
   Though they don't have a clue


 Chorus
   C    D     Em  G
   High on amphetamines
                 C     D     Em  G
   The moon is a light bulb breaking
             C     D    Em  G
   It'll go around with anyone
                     C    D   Em  G
   But it won't come down for anyone
   But it won't come down for anyone
   And I won't come down for anyone

Outro- C - A7 - C

About the artist behind St Ides Heaven Chords:

Steven Paul "Elliott" Smith (August 6, 1969 – October 21, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter and musician. Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas, and resided for a significant portion of his life in Portland, Oregon, where he first gained popularity. His primary instrument was the guitar, but he was also proficient at piano, clarinet, bass, drums and harmonica. Smith had a distinctive vocal style characterized by his "whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery"[1] and use of multi-tracking to create vocal harmonies.

After playing in the rock band Heatmiser for several years, Smith began his solo career in 1994 with releases on the independent record labels Cavity Search and Kill Rock Stars. In 1997 he signed a contract with DreamWorks Records, for which he recorded two albums. Smith rose to mainstream prominence when his song "Miss Misery", included in the soundtrack for the film Good Will Hunting, was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Original Song category in 1997.

Smith battled with depression, alcoholism and drug addiction for years, and these topics often appeared in his lyrics. At age 34, he died in Los Angeles, California from two stab wounds to the chest.[2] The autopsy evidence was inconclusive as to whether the wounds were self-inflicted.[3] At the time of his death, Smith was working on his sixth studio album, From a Basement on the Hill, which was released posthumously on October 19, 2004.
