Okay, my first one was wrong. Here's a much better one.
I haven't notated the strumming patterns, I'm sure you can figure them out on your own.

Capo on 4th fret (3rd fret live)

Intro (after bass): D A E x2

Verse:
E
Laurel was a girl I knew, made of dirt and stone
F#m
Pretty hip in younger years, but now she sits alone
       A  
With a hundred thousand architectural disasters that
         E        
She calls homes
E
Beverly Glen was pretty, all the rich boys loved her curves
    F#m
She tried to get the credit, sometimes more than she deserved
          A
Like those cheesy 80's movies, epitomizing all things
            E
We'd come to know

Chorus: D A E x2

Verse 2:
E
Beachwood was a boheme from the sexy 60's scene
F#m
Grew up east of west Hollywood and somewhere in between
        A
All the madness Laurel puts up with, 
                            E  
But somehow always tolerates a scene
E
Nicols, he had a way with the performing arts
  F#m
A&R guys having cookouts on his back with super stars
       A
But he had some nasty habits and some potholes to
                  E 
Cover up this drama queen

Chorus: D A E x2

Verse 3:
E
Sometimes Beachwood yelled at Laurel over terms of selling out
F#m
Then Laurel yelled at Beverly for not knowing what life's about
         A    
With her trust fund friends and family, it felt like an earthquake
          E
When she'd shout
    E
And Silverlake just stood there, with her nose up in the air
        F#m
Pushing up her horn rimmed glasses saying, 
                               A
"I don't fucking care about the madness all you idiots are buying,
            E       
Selling and leasing up there"

Chorus: D A E x2
E
San Fernando was a struggling actor who drove a deli truck 
       F#m
On the sets of porno movies, he was just trying to make a buck
          A
While his pilot was in escrow, he dreamed of
                   E
Dating Beverly one day

Chorus: D A E x12
