I did my best to make these as accurate to the song as possible. The Bdom7 is my dumb way of writing:

e-2-
B-0-
G-2-
D-1-
A-2-
E-x

and you can always just substitute a Bmaj for any of those. Timing is also really difficult to format so I've just done it by phrase; listen and read along to hear the chord changes.
Enjoy!

The Revival

Em
It took a little longer than we hoped
G
But it was worth it
Am Bdom7
You know it takes a village to raise a scheme
Em C
To patch the holes of a mausoleum

Em
Well we’re packing in the patronage
G
Like it's a lotto and everybody wins
Am Bdom7
Now take a seat so the show can start
Em Cm
And will you welcome these works of art

Cm Em
Isn’t she beautiful No
Cm Em
Maybe another one here could entertain Yes
Am Bdom7
We swear that every minute's worth the wait

Em
Hey It's a cry you can’t contain
Am
A release you couldn’t estimate
C Bdom7
And the secret's safe as long as you pay

Em
It's so good to be so bad
Am
You can leave it when you walk away
C Bdom7
And pretend you’ve washed your hands of it

Em
Last call for the Sunday squaws
G
And there's no room left for the hem and haw
Am Bdom7
We’ll give a gift long overdue
Em C
And make a sultan out of you

Em
That’s right any troglodyte
G
Can have a life in the party as a socialite
Am Bdom7
Or if you’re looking to efface
Em C
You can retire without a trace
Cm
Don’t you bother with doubt

Em
Hey It's a cry you can’t contain
Am
A release you couldn’t estimate
C Bdom7
And the secret's safe as long as you pay

Em
It's so good to be so bad
Am
You can leave it when you walk away
C Bdom7
And pretend you’ve washed your hands of it


Em
Another candidate for giving her bruises
Em
Another night that she’ll dissociate
Em
Another man who thinks the rules don’t apply to him

Em
Long was this road I’ve wandered
B Bb
But short did my temperance live
Am B
Here I’ve helped him build a temple
Em B Em
To deify this czar of sin

Em
Now who to blame but I for tying
B Bb
These knots so well at my wrists
Am B
The noose would surely find me if I’m too wily
Em B Em
But what of the life I’d live

C B
The sale of a soul that falls
Em C
As foolish as young Esau
Am B
It's better if I withdraw

Em
Hey It's a cry you can’t contain
Am
A release you couldn’t estimate
C Bdom7
And the secret's safe as long as you pay

Em
It's so good to be so bad
Am
You can leave it when you walk away
C Bdom7
And pretend you’ve washed your hands of it
Em E
