This is my first tab.  Didn't see it on here so I figured it out.  Listen to the song if 
you want the picking pattern.  This also sounds pretty good strumming on an acoustic.
C                     Am
This street holds its secrets
C                     Am
like a cobra holds its kill
C                     Am
This street minds its business
C                     Am
like a jailer minds his jail
F                     G
That house there is haunted
C                     Am
That door's a portal to hell
F                     G
This street holds its secrets
C                     Am
very well

second verse same pattern

That man wears his skin
like a dancer wears her veils
That man stalks his victims
like a cancer stalks a cell
That man's soul has left him his heart's as
deadly as a rusty nail
That man sheds his skin
like a veil

Bridge

Dm                    G     C                        Am
Lord, you play a hard game, you know we follow every rule
C        C/B          F                           G
Then you take the one thing we thought we'd never lose
Dm                    Am              C                 F
All I ask is if she's with you please keep her warm and safe
F                    G
And if it's in your power please purge the memory of this place

Third Verse same as others

This life holds its secrets
like a sea shell holds the sea,
Soft and distant calling like a
fading memory
This life has its victories but its
defeats tear so viciously
This life holds its secrets
like the sea



The album version just fades on the C    Am so just end it where you feel like.  I 
usually end on a C.
