Rufus Wainwright - Going To A Town

The song really isn't that challenging but I've looked up two tabs so far and I 
don't really agree with them so I decided to take out the notes myself.

The chords I use are these: (Most are in this order)

Bbm x13321
Eb  x68886
Ab  466544
C#  x4666x <--- I mute that bottom string
C   x3555x
Fm  133111
G   355233
Ebm x68876
F#  244322

And then they're just played in different places... (This is the first tab I've 
written by the way)

Intro

Bbm

Verse


    A#m        (I slide to the next chord)       D#
I'm going to a town that has already been burned down

    Ab                                    C#
I'm going to a place that is already been disgraced

    Bbm                                            C
I'm gonna see some folks who have already been let down.

                Fm
I'm so tired of America

    Bbm                                    Eb
I'm gonna make it up for all of the Sunday Times
  
    Ab                                      C#
I'm gonna make it up for all of the nursery rhymes
     
     Bbm                                   C
They never really seem to want to tell the truth

                    Fm
I'm so tired of you America

(Chorus)

          Bbm     Fm
Making my own way home

      Bbm      Fm
Ain't gonna be alone

        Bbm     G
I got a life to lead 

C
America

(Continuously strum A#m)                
I got a life to lead

(Same as Verse just longer)

     Bbm                                              Eb
Tell me do you really think you go to hell for having loved? (Tell me)
    Ab                                               C#
and not for thinking every thing that you've done is good (I really need to know)
     Bbm                                  C
After soaking the body of Jesus Christ in blood

   Fm
I'm so tired of America
I really need to know

(Same as verse)

I may just never see you again or might as well
You took advantage of a world that loved you well
I'm going to a town that has already been burned down
I'm so tired of you America

(Chorus changes for last time)

       Bbm        Fm
Making my own way home

   Bbm         Fm
Ain't gonna be alone

  Bbm           G
I got a life to lead 

C
America

(Chorus changes last time)

        Bbm       Ab
I got a life to lead

        Ab      Ebm
I got a soul to feed

        Ebm      Fm
I got a dream to heed

           F#   C    Fm
And that's all  I    need

(Does the same thing)
     
Making my own way home
Ain't gonna be alone
I'm going to a town that has al-rea-dy been burned down
