This is my interpretation of the song and is what I hear. Since
U-G doesn't always include the correct chord voicings, I have
included all of them in this transcription. Please feel free to
experiment with your own chord voicings.

This song has a higher difficulty level due to the chords used.
I have attempted to keep the voicings as simple as possible, 
while still maintaining the tone and flavor of the song. The 7th
line of the Bridge contains a D#, Dsus and a D. Although I did
not include the barre chord voicings for the Dsus and D, I would
recommend using them here, since their relative position is
closer on the neck.
Dsus     x57785
D        x57775

Some of the chords in the Main portion of the song are repeats
from the Intro. Should you come across a chord in the Main
portion of the song and the voicing is not listed in the Main
Chords, please use the chord voicing from the Intro Chords.
