This Is Halloween Chords

(ver. 1)
Danny Elfman
Okay, this is right from the book, so it should be pretty accurate.
GO AND DO IT NOW!! Jack's amazing...

Well, this is the first song from the film,and it's pretty hardcore; flatted 5ths and 
accidentals all over the place - good luck! (This chord list scared me to write out, and I 
tend to scare easy...)
