I'm still a little 'iffy' about the chorus. If it's wrong let me know and I'll correct it.

Tune guitar down 1/2 step
(Intro)
G D/F# Em C C D G



(Verse)
G                  D/F#
A corner dive down on the square
           Em               C
Where the windows hang with a neon flare
                D
Regulars shoot horse and pool
           G
While the barmaid wishes the place half full
                          D/F#
She works the jar with a discount flirt
   Em         C
A faded Houston Oilers shirt
                        D
While an old crow sings down on the stage
G                         D/F#
Thumbing the chords on a crinkled page
   Em                    C
He plays his Zevon tune
D
Beneath a gulf moon

G D/F# Em C C D G

G                D/F#
Take a walk down along the wall
          Em              C
You'll go right on past the carnival
                      D
Hand in hand with the keeper kind
G
The kind that ties to the ties that bind
                   D/F#
Don't care for the carnie man
       Em                C
Or the fortune teller that reads your hand
                       D
You just beeline for a bungalow
           G
Where the curtains flutter
    D/F#
And candles glow
                Em   C
In the heart of June
D                  G
Beneath a gulf moon

(Chorus)

D                 G
And here I'm on a midnight porch
C
Looking up at a butane torch
D                   G
That hangs behind a black expanse
      C                 Em
Where stars flicker and planets dance
          D               G
And it's probably time I pack it in
       C
With a glass half-full of Jameson
          Em
Well I was born to croon
          C
I might as well
D
Beneath a gulf moon

G D/F# Em C C D G


Verse

G
Down by the jetty
        D/F#
Near the Balinese Pier
     Em                       C
The curmudgeons drink the yellow belly beer
                          D
And they b***h about the price of gas
         G
And the fish that they can't seem to catch
                             D/F#
They blame it on the islands way down south
          Em            C
From the bayou marsh and the delta mouth
                                 D
Where the choppers roll and the tankers come
      G                  D/F#
In a midnight daze for the oil drum
     Em                  C
They can't leave too soon
D
Beneath a gulf moon 

Outro: G D/F# Em C C D G

Here is the original version which I think is in C but Kenny does play it a bit different. John used to post on this site so who knows maybe he will share how its played. I do like Kenny's version and he didn't butcher an already great song.
