Hey, love this song, thought I'd tab it out since Shakey doesn't have enough tabs 
around. Enjoy.

The song is played with a capo on the second fret, but you can also play without a 
capo or with barre chords if you want.

(The Am-D progression in the verses is played with Am for three bars and D for one)

Verse 1:

                  E              B7          Am                      D
Well the cold has a hard time finding me
     E            B7               Am            D
Unlike some folks I know
       E            B7              Am                  D
Yeah all the men down in union square 
       E            B7           Am
Are worried about the snow

Am
When your pockets fill
D
With dollar bills
Am                            D
Your heart forgets to eat
         E                        B7
Its a wicked thing
                   E
It owns this street

Chorus:

         E                                                            Am   D   Am   D
Yeah fix your boots or take me home says quick monique the freak
         E                                                           Am   D   Am   D
I need an easy dollar are you trick or are you treat
           E                                                   
Well if she was six teeth younger and if i had half a mind
                                            B7                          E
Id carry her away from that wicked thing outside

Verse 2:

         E            B7          Am           D
Well i saw a carried bundle 
        E            B7          Am          D
that has fingers eyes and toes
      E          B7                Am      D
As a father of deception 
     E          B7               Am        
i have never raised a soul

        Am                          D                       Am                             D
Its a purchase captured second hand and cherished more than gold
        E                                                       B7                        E
Its a shelter from that wicked thing that wanders in the night

Chorus:

         E                                                              Am   D   Am   D
Yeah fix your boots or take me home says quick monique the freak
         E                                                Am   D   Am   D
I need an easy dollar are you trick or are you treat
           E                                                   
Well if she was six teeth younger and if i had half a mind
                                            B7                          E
Id carry her away from that wicked thing outside

      Am              D                       Am                      D
The water on the dirty streets has all but turned to ice
     E                                                      B7                     E
To pave the road for wicked things that wander in the night
