Just a few notes about this one.

The song is in 6/8 time and uses a lot of passing tones in the bass to support the chord changes. Listen to a live recording to get the feel if it's too ambiguous on the recorded version.

In the chorus there is an F# in parentheses which indicates that this is a passing tone and not a chord. Just play the low F# on the 2nd fret of the low E string to connect the E major chord to the G chord.

So you're drunk and your name is Jimmy Stewart

You once had a wonderful life
G             A               F#m         Bm   
Then you lost all your money, you cracked up your car

You yelled at your favorite wife
          D           G              D  
You go to bed and you wait for Jacob Marley

He comes to make you feel brave

And a finger that points at your grave
