Verse:
Eb                Bb
I can't get to sleep
Db                 Ab
I think about the implications
Eb                Bb
Of diving in too deep
Db                  Ab
And possibly the complications
Eb              Bb
Especially at night
Db             Ab
I worry over situations
Eb               Bb
I know will be alright
Db                   Ab
Perhaps its just my imagination

Chorus:
Cm                     Bb
Day after day it reappears
Cm                              Bb
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Gm                   Ab
Ghost appear and fade away

Verse:
Eb                  Bb                 
Alone between the sheets
Db              Ab
Only brings exasperation
Eb                     Bb
It's time to walk the streets
Db            Ab
Smell the... desperation
Eb                       Bb
At least there's pretty lights
Db                         Ab
And though there's little variation
Eb                Bb
It nullifies the night
Db         Ab
from Overkill

Chorus:
Cm                     Bb
Day after day it reappears
Cm                              Bb
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Gm                   Ab
Ghost appear and fade away
Ab
come back another day

-Solo-

Verse:
Eb                Bb
I can't get to sleep
Db                 Ab
I think about the implications
Eb                Bb
Of diving in too deep
Db                  Ab
And possibly the complications
Eb              Bb
Especially at night
Db             Ab
I worry over situations now
Eb               Bb
I know will be alright
Db             Ab
It's just Overkill

Chorus:
Cm                     Bb
Day after day it reappears
Cm                              Bb
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Gm                   Ab
Ghost appear and fade away
Gm                   Ab
Ghost appear and fade away
Gm                   Ab
Ghost appear and fade away

Edit:

+2 is the Men At Work 1983 version

0 is the Colin Hay (solo) acoustic 2003 version

Both great. Hope that clarifies.

The original song is definitely in the key of E, so play +2 if you want it to sound right! (easier too)

:)

The last chord in the chorus should change to an A rather that remaining on a G.
