Im pretty sure this isn't 100% correct but unless you compare it directly to
the original acoustic version you won't be able to tell (hopefully).
Read the story behind this song on wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_7,_4:15

Well anyway this is how I play it, I'm not that good at tabbing but here goes...

Verse 1, 2 and Intro

|--------0------------------------------------|
|----------0-----------3--------0-------------|
|------------0-------2--------0---0-----------|
|-----2------------0--------2-----------------|
|---2---------------------3-------------------|
|-0-------------------------------------------|

|--------0---------2-----0--------------------|
|----------0---------3-----3---3--------------|
|------------0---------2-----2---2------------|
|-----2------------0--------------------------|
|---2-----------------------------------------|
|-0-------------------------------------------|

These 2 riffs alternate during the verses and intro
Also, there's a section in between verse 1 and 2 where there is no singing, however, the 
above riffs are still played.

Bridge

Not too sure on but you can play an Asus2 and improvise appregiating or just strum

Chorus (strummed)

G               C               G       D
Tell me it was just a dream, August 7 4:15.

Em                            C               G      D C
God closed his eyes and the world got mean. August 7 4:15.

Verse 3

Bridge (Asus2)

Chorus

Guitar solo

Not too sure on this either, Richie mostly improvises. You can strum Em D and
C through it though, as it is not a lengthy one.

Verse 4

Bridge

Chorus X2

can i just say the solo isn't done by Richie Sambora, Destination Anywhere is Bon Jovi's solo album, the only performing member of Bon Jovi on this album is David Bryan.
But that's nothing against the tab (which is spot on by the way, well done) and th only tab on her for a great song
good work, on the tab, 5 stars
