Of Montreal – My Favorate Boxer chords

I saw patinahat's tab of this song and I spent 2 hours listening to the song and I noticed he
got it wrong. Thanks for trying though, patrick. Following these chords should help you sound
 just like the band. Kevin Barnes is about as good a songwriter as you can get, by the way!

"My Favorite Boxer"-Written by Kevin Barnes Performed by of Montreal-----------------------In the beginning the guitar plays higher in the neck besides the barred chords in therest of the song.-The G minor F Ebm to A- B A/Dm F7 Bb/Dm G/Eb Eb/Cm*e-10----------------6-8-10-8---8-------5----10------------------b-11----------10----7-7-7-7----7---6---6-----8----8----8------6g-12----------10----8-8-8-8----8---7---7----10----7----8------5d-12----------10---------------7---8---7-----8----8----8------5a- ---------------------------------------------------10------4*comes later in the song. I put it up here to save space.
Here are the lyrics with chords. The Bb to A/Dm is the only part that I am not totally convinced is correct, but I couldn't interpret that spot easily and the A/Dm is similar enough.
