Here's the lyrics with the chords being played. This was the best I could get.
(The following are barre chords, except for the E, which in barre form, is just an E basic chord.)
Well, these legions [E]of lesions that I've aquired[B]
Are suggesting the[E] best thing to do is retire[B]
But here comes [E]the dumb thing
I've got[F#] to do something
Or demons of lo[A]ve
Will descend [B]from above
So I've let go of t[E]he rope
Yes, I've abandoned a[F#]ll hope
A B(played hard 4 times)
Before this pushing comes to more shoving
Yeah, stay away from Los Angeles
B(hard)
If what you want to find there is loving
(Riff 1)
(Riff 2)
Now these legions of [E]lesions that we've aquired[B]
Are suggestin[E]g the best thing to do is retire[B]
But here's just a sl[E]iver of what they'll deliver[F#]
A kick to t[A]he head and a shot to the live[B]r
So we've let go of the[E] rope
Yes, we've abandone[F#]d all hope
A B(4 times hard)
Before this pushing come to more shoving
Now stay away from Los Angeles
B(hard)
If what you want to find there is loving
(Riff 1)(Riff 2)
Yeah, loving
Alright, loving
Loving
D=Distortion
So squash me flat as a di[E(D]me
In the middle [B(D]of my prime
With the gentleness[E(D] of a biblical do[B(D]ve
So we've let go of th[E]e rope
Yes, let's abandon[F#] all hope
A B(4 times hard)
Before this pushing comes to more shoving
Now stay away from Lo[E]s Angeles, mmmhhmmm
[B]Stay away from Los Angeles
E B(hard)
Let's stay away from Los Angeles if what you want to find there is loving.
Alright, loving
Loving
Loving
l-o-v-i-n-g, loving
(Riff 2)
(Riff 3)

Not too sure on the solo. It is kind of weird if you listen to it. Sounds like a keyboard is used in some of it. Also the solo has a sort of sliding motion to it. Didn't tab the solo, but if someone did, let me know.
