I listened via Spotify to this song as it appears on the album "Wotcheor!" by Jez Lowe and the Bad Pennies, and these lines are different:
When they're asked "who killed Trotsky?" or "who killed scored for Aberdeen?"
[something] prime ministers, Shakespeare and Springsteen,...
Also, is it my imagination, or does the tune and overall structure of the song owe something to "The Free Mexican Air Force (Is Flying Tonight)" by Peter Rowan and others? It's not close enough to be considered a parody or borrowed tune, though; maybe just "inspired by."
(Sorry, Guest; I can't help with chords, but I hope your request doesn't go unnoticed.)
