Tabbed by:Ballaman82
-Based on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qq0PyCJMaJs&feature=fvwrel
-It's dropped a half step from the studio version, so if you want to play along with the
album, throw a capo on the first fret.
-Standard Tuning on Acoustic Guitar


For those of you who simply want the chords, here is a simplified version:

Verse: E, A
Pre- Chorus- E, F#m/E, G#m/E, A/E, E, A, E, A
Chorus: E, A, B
Bridge: (A, E, B) 3x, then (E, F#m/E, G#m/E, A/E) 4x




Intro
e|-0----0-----0--------0---0----------------0-----------|
B|-0--0---0---2--2-0-2-----2p0---0---0------2-----------|
G|-1----------2------------1---1---0---2p1--2-----------| 2x
D|-2----------2------------2----------------2-----------|
A|-2----------0------------2----------------0-----------|
E|-0-----------------------0----------------------------|


Verse
Each E and A chord is strummed once and held for four counts


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


Pre-Chorus (we are not, we are not shining stars....)
All chords are strummed and held for four counts

e|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0---------0------|
B|--0-----0-----0-----5-----0-----2-----0---------2------|
G|--1-----2-----4-----6-----1-----2-----1---------2------|
D|--2-----4-----6-----7-----2-----2-----2----2----2------|
A|--2-----4-----6-----7-----2-----0-----2--2---2--0------|
E|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----------0----------------|


Chorus

The strum here is as follows, shown in line with a count of 1-and 2-and etc. at a speed
of about 120 bpm. Strum the chord indicated on the beat and it should sound right. Play
this four times.

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
E - E E - - E E

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
A - A A B-BBBBB


If that doesn't make sense, it's these three chords in order, played four times, and you
can figure out a strum pattern that works for you.

E, Asus2, Bsus4

e|--0---0---0------|
B|--0---0---0------|
G|--1---2---4------|
D|--2---2---4------|
A|--2---0---2------|
E|--0--------------|


Second Verse

-same chords, but the A becomes and Asus2, and structure as before, but now the strum
pattern is:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
x x x x xxx x x

Essentially, it's strumming each eighth note, with a triplet on the third count. And
accent the second beat.
Or, in simpler terms, two strums per beat, but three strums on the third beat.


Second Pre-Chorus
- same strum pattern as shown for second verse
-the last chord is played quickly and could be left out, it is just a transition chord

e|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0------0-----0-----|
B|--0-----0-----0-----5-----0-----0-----0------5-----7-----|
G|--1-----2-----4-----6-----1-----2-----4------6-----8-----|
D|--2-----4-----6-----7-----2-----4-----6------7-----9-----|
A|--2-----4-----6-----7-----2-----4-----6------7-----9-----|
E|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0------0-----7-----|


Second Chorus

-Identical to the first


Bridge

Strum the Bsus4 rapidly for "Woah"

-then move into this next part. I like to use a triplet (three strums on each beat)
strum pattern for this whole part. It sounds really good if you focus your first three
strums on the lower part of the chord and then accent it on the fourth and sixth beats 
with the high part of the chord. But just a simple triplet pattern works great too.

e|--0---0---0------|
B|--0---0---0------|
G|--2---1---4------| 3x
D|--2---2---4------|
A|--0---2---2------|
E|------0----------|

e|-0--0000---0--0000---|
B|-0--0000---0--0000---|
G|-2--2222---4--4444---|
D|-2--2222---4--4444---|
A|-0--0000---2--2222---|
E|---------------------|

e|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0------0------|
B|--0-----0-----0-----5-----0-----0-----0------5------|
G|--1-----2-----4-----6-----1-----2-----4------6------|
D|--2-----4-----6-----7-----2-----4-----6------7------|
A|--2-----4-----6-----7-----2-----4-----6------7------|
E|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0------0------|

e|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0------0-----0-----|
B|--0-----0-----0-----5-----0-----0-----0------5-----7-----|
G|--1-----2-----4-----6-----1-----2-----4------6-----8-----|
D|--2-----4-----6-----7-----2-----4-----6------7-----9-----|
A|--2-----4-----6-----7-----2-----4-----6------7-----9-----|
E|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0------0-----7-----|



Third Chorus
-Same as the others


Outro
- One strum on each of the first three counts, eighth note strum for the fourth

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
x - x - x - x x

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


Then play the intro twice more and end on an E.

e|-0----0-----0--------0---0----------------0-----------|
B|-0--0---0---2--2-0-2-----2p0---0---0------2-----------|
G|-1----------2------------1---1---0---2p1--2-----------|
D|-2----------2------------2----------------2-----------|
A|-2----------0------------2----------------0-----------|
E|-0-----------------------0----------------------------|


Enjoy!
