Captain Lethargy:
Try it with a basic E shaped chord. Slide it up so you are playing an A (5th fret) down 1 fret BUT make it a G#m, slide down 2 frets and then back up to G#m
      A             G#m   
I'm John The Bapist this is my friend Salome
F#m                            G#m
You can bet it's my head she wants not my heart only
A                      G#m
If you see me smiling and you wonder why
         F#m                     G#m
You can bet it's a private joke between her and I
         A    E       A       E
And it's all right and it's all right

On the second it's all righ you can do a repeat of the verse shift - A G#m F#m E

    A   G#m F#m E   
E   0    0    0   0   
B   0    0    0   0   
G   6    4    2   1   
D   7    6    4   2   
A   7    6    4   2   
E   0    0    0   0
