Dagger Woods - The Stanfields

This is my first submission to, so any suggestions welcome.  I couldn't get
the intro and solos, so I'm hoping someone else can chime in here.

Capo 3

Sorry, I haven't figured this out yet, maybe someone can be kind 
enough to tab it out.

Verse 1

Oh, Out in the woods not long ago, outside a town ten miles or so
Bm                                 D            A
Man and wife and two small babies, camping in a glade
On an Indian Summer getaway, a weekend full of rest and play
Bm                                    D	               A
Tuckered out from their full day, now sitting 'round a fire

Am                                                            Em
But lurking in the shadows was a demon, with a big 'ol set of eyes
       Am                                            Em
And an appetite for souls, like these, feeding time tonight  
     Bm	                         Fm
They never heard it coming, they never saw it coming
They were never seen or heard from again

Chorus 1

         Em                           D
The Hidey-Hinder, through the gates of Hades
         Fm                           A
Overcame Daddy, and took the mama and babies
          Em                   D
The Hidey-Hinder done took 'em good
            Fm	                 Em
Back to its lair, deep in Dagger Woods

Em  D

Verse 2

Well, The tale begins hundred years, through the countless days and hours
         Bm                                D                A
When the golden plow first broke the land, folks started disappearing
The locals swear beyond a doubt, it came over on the first rowboat
    Bm                         D              A
The bloodthirsty monster, they call the Hidey-Hinder

   Am                                                          Em
An old world apparition hitched a ride, to the new world in disguise
Am                                                        Em
Supernatural baggage in the hold, from a hard life left behind
Bm                                     Fm
If they knew what they was bringin', I sure would not be singin'
'Bout people never seen or heard again

Chorus 2

          Em                         D
The Hidey-Hinder, from the old world nations
                  Fm                     A
You've reigned in terror, for seven generations
         Em               D
Oh Hidey-Hinder, I wish I could
          Fm                    Em
Prove you exist, deep in Dagger Woods

Em D Fm A
Em D Fm Em
Em D
Em (several times)

Verse 3

Now let's go back to the present day, to a prison far the other way
     Bm                      D             A
To a broken lonely man, that lonely man is me
I told the judge what Iím telling you, said "such a thing cannot be true"
   Bm                           D              A
He locked me up for murder, and threw away the key

Am                                                             Em
He said the only monster that he's seen, sits right before his eyes
He stared me down, Shook his head, and condemned me 
As a sick  man telling lies
   Bm                             Fm
I shoulda seen it comin', shoulda known that it was comin'
Now Iíll never see the light of day again

Chorus 3

         Em                     D
Oh Hidey-Hinder, of the million maybes
             Fm                    A
I know to be true, my Jilly and my babies
         Em                      D
Oh Hidey-Hinder ya done took 'em good
          Fm                 Em
Away from me, deep in Dagger Woods

    D                                   Em
No, Thatís where I should be, in Dagger Woods
D                              Em
Hanging from a tree, in Dagger Woods
    D                               Em
For all the world to see, in Dagger Woods
D                              Em
Back with my family, in Dagger Woods
