**TUNING**
low to high

G-G-D-G-B-D

tune the high E down a whole step to D. tune the low E up 1 1/2 steps to G. tune the A 
string down a whole step to G. pretty sure the tuning is correct, took me some time to 
get it.

also CAPO IS AT THE 5TH FRET - the chord positions for this tab are relative to the capo

this tab is definitely not correct, at all.. i have no idea how he actually plays this, 
there are a lot of subtle slides and stuff. i figured out what i have here from watching 
videos i guess, so it's based off the live version

mostly emphasize hitting the A string and high E

verse - not sure how this goes exactly, i alternate between the picking patterns i have 
here. this is picked as long as it takes to sing "you're telling me a good man is hard 
to find well.. what are you.."

"blind" for this part he picks it very strange and very fast

i won't explain this picking because it's basically all the same and i'm not exactly 
sure how it goes, he alternates between which strings he hits so listen closely
"well nevermind lets try and have a good.."

G------------2/4--------------------------2/4---------------------|
D-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A---------0---------------0-----------0------------------0--------|

that part goes twice then it goes to this chord picked the same (as shown below)

E-2--
B-2--
G-2--
D-2--
A-2--
E-2--

then just pick openly the same pattern like so:
E--0---------------------0----------------------0----------------------------|
B---------0----------------------0-----------------------0-------------------|
G--------------0----------------------0-----------------------0--------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------0----------0----------0-----------0----------0-----------0-----------|
E--0---------------------0----------------------0----------------------------|

from here you go right back into the song again and it's played through pretty much the 
same, however the second time around it goes into this part

E--7--------------------8----------------------9-----------------------7--------4--------------|
B----------7----------------------X----------------------X-------------4--------4-----4--------|
G--------------7----------------------X------------------------X----------------------------4--|
D----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E--7---------------------4----------------------4-----------------------4----------(4)---------|

E--2---------------------0----------------------0----------------------------|

G--------------2----------------------0-----------------------0--------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------2----------2----------0-----------0----------0-----------0-----------|
E--2---------------------0----------------------0----------------------------|

not the greatest attempt at the song.. but yeah, just kind of listen to the song and do 
what sounds best to you
