The song is:

Verse 1
Post chorus
4 bars insrumnetal
Verse 2
Chorus 2
Post chorus
Verse 3 (short verse)
Chorus 3
Final Post Chorus
(Note: no other tabber has noticed it is a high A being played during the chorus, but if
you listen carefully or watch Dave playing it, it's definitely correct. Dave has also
said this is his favourite song off "sixteen stone" because of "all the attitude".)
