Hey guys I am pretty sure this is exact but don't take it out on me if I am wrong I am only thirteen.  This is how we play it in our little excuse for a band that I have with a few friends, so try it and see what u think.
And note that the tuning is different, k?

* When you see this symbol beside a note, it means the note is a short, staccato note that sn't as loud as the others

Also, remember that at the part where it says, "there's nothing left to lose!" and after that,
there will be a letter G in the middle of the line, when it says that, it is simply the G chord, got it? good!

OK THATS IT!  BUT TO FIX IT UP, YOU CAN ADD THE BACKGROUND SINGER DURING THE CHORUS (THE MAIN CHORD PART) YOU CAN LISTEN FOR WHAT IT IS, AND AT THE ENDING THERES BACKGROUND SINGIN', AND, WHEN YOU PLAY THE FOUR D CHORDS REALLY FAST, AT FOR EXAMPLE, "HANGIN' BY A" THOSE FOUR D CHORDS, YOU CAN PLAY 3,2,0, ON THE Eb STRING, AND THEN 3 ON THE Bb STRING.

The tuning I figured the song out in, is Drop D tuning, I watched them on TV, and noticed it did look like he played off the 6th (low E, tuned to D)string, as the obvious bass note, and did a little half step (flated) pull away on the 5th string (A) on the 5th to 4th fret, and also used his open 4th, or D string as part of the triad.
