(Please don't tell my college music professors if I got any of those chord name wrong.)

It sounds like he is doing some hammer-ons with the A string on the Em7 and the low E string on the G6.  Listen to the record for the timing. Let me know if I got anything wrong.

Intro:
Em7 G6 A7sus

Verse 1:
         Em7           G6          A7sus
She said Andy you're better than your past,
Em7              G6          A7sus
winked at me and drained her glass,
      Em7           G6             A7sus          Em7    G6   A7sus    
cross-legged on the barstool, like nobody sits anymore.

         Em7         G6        A7sus
She said Andy you're taking me home,
      Em7      G6                A7sus
but I knew she planned to sleep alone.
    Em7          G6      A7sus                      Em7    G6   A7sus 
I'd carry her to bed and sweep up the hair from the floor

Chorus:
         Cadd9             Dsus2
If I had f**ked her before she got sick
    G6    Dsus2/F#  Em7
I'd never hear the end of it
Cadd9              Dsus2            Em7
she don't have the spirit for that now
   Cadd9                  Dsus2
We drink these drinks and laugh out loud,
G6     Dsus2/F#  Em7
b***h about the weekend crowd,
    Cadd9             Dsus2         Em7    G6   A7sus 
and try to ignore the elephant somehow
    Em7    G6   A7sus
somehow

Verse:
She said Andy you crack me up,
Seagrams in a coffee cup,
sharecropper eyes and her hair almost all gone.
When she was drunk she made cancer jokes,
she made up her own doctor's notes,
surrounded by her family, I saw that she was dying alone.

Chorus:
I'd sing her classic country songs
and she'd get high and sing along.
She don't have much voice to sing with now

We'd burn these joints in effegy,
cry about what we used to be,
and try to ignore the elephant somehow.
Somehow


Chorus:
I buried her a thousand times,
giving up my place in line,
but I don't give a damn about that now

There's one thing that's real clear to me,
no one dies with dignity.
We just try to ignore the elephant somehow.
We just try to ignore the elephant somehow.
We just try to ignore the elephant somehow.
Somehow.
Somehow.
