There you go.  It isn't exact, but I think it's close.
At the very least it should give you a place to start.

Are you gonna go my way - as performed by Lenny Kravitz on MTV acoustic
-----------------------

Acoustic version from: jafro@max.hint.no (Jan Frode Haugseth)

This is my first tab ever, so please bear with me. I think i got the strumming
quite right, and the vertical lines. I have only heard this song twice or so,
so you can't expect me to get the pull-offs or slides quite right. But it
sounds cool when you play it this way. You can, of course, do your own
variations, when it comes to the pulloffs and strummings, because mine are not
the same as Kravitz' anyway. And, I would like to get feedback on this tab,
since it is my first one, and I would like to hear if you did get it right.
Yeah, and I will dedicate this to my girlfriend, Ingrid Elise :). Or is that
wrong?

Tip:    This song really rule if you have two guitars, and can get some other
        human being to play the b part of the verse riffs.

The notification I used:

X = Mute string with left hand finger
p = pull off (using left hand finger)
b = bend
/ = slide up

Ok, here goes (this simple version kicks ass much more than that original):D

Opening riff, + beginning lines of the song,
first 4 times then 5 times with vocals

    E5  E5    E5    A   G A E/A
e|--------------------|--------------|
B|--------------------|--------------|
G|--1---1-1---1-1---2p|-0-2-/9-------|
D|--2---2-2---2-2-----|-----/9-------|
A|--2---2-2---2-2-----|--------------|
E|--0---0-0---0-0-----|--------------|

This riff for:

       1st verse                          2nd verse

       I was born                         I don't know why
       long ago                           we always cry
       I am the chosen I'm the one        This we must leave and get undone
       I have come                        We must engage
       to save the day                    and rearrange

Then this one once:

    E   E     E     A   G A   E5    F5    F#5   G5
e|--------------------|-------0-0-0--1-1-1--2-2-2--3-3-3|
B|--------------------|-------0-0-0--1-1-1--2-2-2--3-3-3|
G|--1---1-1---1-1---2-|-0-2---1-1-1--2-2-2--3-3-3--4-4-4|
D|--2---2-2---2-2-----|-------2-2-2--3-3-3--4-4-4--5-5-5|
A|--2---2-2---2-2-----|-------2-2-2--3-3-3--4-4-4--5-5-5|
E|--0---0-0---0-0-----|-------0-0-0--1-1-1--2-2-2--3-3-3|
                              |----4/1speed increase----|

  And I won't leave until I'm done        And get this planet back to one





Then this twice:
    G5  G5    G5    D   A D  G
e|--------------------|--------------|
B|--------------------|--------------|
G|--4---4-4---4-4---5-|-2-5-/12------|
D|--5---5-5---5-5-----|-----/12------|
A|--5---5-5---5-5-----|--------------|
E|--3---3-3---3-3-----|--------------|

       So that's why                      So tell me why
       you've got to try                  We gotta die

Then this once
    G5  G5    G5    D   A D   G5     F#5    F5     E5
e|--------------------|-------3-3-3--2-2-2--1-1-1--0-0-0|
B|--------------------|-------3-3-3--2-2-2--1-1-1--0-0-0|
G|--4---4-4---4-4---5-|-2-5---4-4-4--3-3-3--2-2-2--1-1-1|
D|--5---5-5---5-5-----|-------5-5-5--4-4-4--3-3-3--2-2-2|
A|--5---5-5---5-5-----|-------5-5-5--4-4-4--3-3-3--2-2-2|
E|--3---3-3---3-3-----|-------3-3-3--2-2-2--1-1-1--0-0-0|
                              |----4/1speed increase----|

       You've got to breathe -            And kill each other -
       and have some fun                  one by one


This twice:
    E5  E5    E5    A   G A E/A
e|--------------------|--------------
B|--------------------|--------------
G|--1---1-1---1-1---2-|-0-2-/9-------
D|--2---2-2---2-2-----|-----/9-------
A|--2---2-2---2-2-----|--------------
E|--0---0-0---0-0-----|--------------

       Though I'm not paid -              We've got to love -
       I play this game                   and rub-a-dub

This once:
    E   E     E    A   G A   E5    F5    F#5   G5
e|-------------------|-------0-0-0--1-1-1--2-2-2--3-3-3|
B|-------------------|-------0-0-0--1-1-1--2-2-2--3-3-3|
G|-1---1-1---1-1---2-|-0-2---1-1-1--2-2-2--3-3-3--4-4-4|
D|-2---2-2---2-2-----|-------2-2-2--3-3-3--4-4-4--5-5-5|
A|-2---2-2---2-2-----|-------2-2-2--3-3-3--4-4-4--5-5-5|
E|-0---0-0---0-0-----|-------0-0-0--1-1-1--2-2-2--3-3-3|
                             |----4/1speed increase----|

       And I won't stop until I'm done    We've got to dance and be in love


Then chorus once:
    G5                        F#5           F5          E
e|--------------------|-------------------|-------------0-----
B|--------------------|-------------------|-------------0-----
G|--4---4-4---4-4---4-|-4---4-3---3-3---3-|-2---2-2---2-X-----
D|--5---5-5---5-5---5-|-5---5-4---4-4---4-|-3---3-3---3-2-----
A|--5---5-5---5-5---5-|-5---5-4---4-4---4-|-3---3-3---3-2-----
E|--3---3-3---3-3---3-|-3---3-2---2-2---2-|-1---1-1---1-0-----
                                                       Let e & B ring here!

                 But what I really want to know is
                 Are you gonna go my way



Then maybe this four times or so:
    E5  E5    E5    A     G A E/A
e|----------------------|-------------
B|----------------------|-------------
G|--1---1-1---1-1---2bp-|-0-2-/9------
D|--2---2-2---2-2-------|-----/9------
A|--2---2-2---2-2-------|-------------
E|--0---0-0---0-0-------|-------------
