I have changed all the intro chords into one chord - 
004400.

In the verses, I made the following changes:

004000 is now 004300
034000 is now 034300
550670 is now 550600 (simpler and works as well)
012000 is now 013000

The outtro has also been changed.

The timing is 6/8.  Basic pattern for intro and between verses:

Eb--------0--0--0--0----|-------0--0--0--0----|
Bb--------0--0--0--0----|-------0--0--0--0----|
F --------4--4--4--4----|-------4--4--4--4----|
Eb--------4--4--4--4----|-------4--4--4--4----|
Bb--------0--0--0--0----|-------0--0--0--0----|
Eb-----0--------------0-|----0--------------0-|

The bass notes are emphasized (counts 6 and 1).

1st verse:

004300
wear the red dress tonight and


034300
you will reel your heart in tight


024300
you can have the upper hand and


013000
I'll pretend to understand


220300     550600
why                it came to


004400
this


004300
How it came from there to here


034300
How we muddled what seemed clear


024300
Were we just doomed from the start


013000
Undermined by simple hearts


220300    550600
Why'd               it come to 


004400
this


034000
Come down in silence


025000
Come down in fear


013000
Come down in pieces   Come


220300    550600
down                   in


004400
tears

lead in to middle 8 and middle 8:


013000
Come down in pieces   Come


220300    550670
down                   in


004400
tears
