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

Chorus:
Fm                     Eb
Day after day it reappears
Fm                              Eb
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Cm                   Db
Ghost appear and fade away

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

Chorus:
Fm                     Eb
Day after day it reappears
Fm                              Eb
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Cm                   Db
Ghost appear and fade away
Db
come back another day

-Solo-

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

Chorus:
Fm                     Eb
Day after day it reappears
Fm                              Eb
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Cm                   Db
Ghost appear and fade away
Cm                   Db
Ghost appear and fade away
Cm                   Db
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.
