Manic Street Preachers - William's Last Words
Journal for Plague Lovers (2009)

pretty simple song. other than the fills in the pre-chorus, things are pretty bare bones.

A7             C               G            Em
   Isn't it lovely when the dawn brings the dew, i'll be watching over you

G            C
goodnight my sweetheart...

Chorus - 

                     Goodnight sleep tight, goodnight God bless
E |------------------------|
B |------------------------|
G |------------------------|
D |-5-5-5-5-5--3--5--7-----|
A |-5-5-5-5-5--3--5--7-----|
E |-3-3-3-3-3--1--3--5-----|
let the last power chord ring, repeat etc. does it need explaining?

Pre-chorus/outro fills:
After the C chord James plays variations on these fills
E |------------------------|
B |------------------------|
G |------------------------|
D |-0-2-3-2---0------------|
A |---------3---3-2--------|
E |------------------------|

trickier ones heard in the outro:
E |------------------------|
B |------------------------|
G |------------------------|
D |5h7p5/4h5-5h7p5/4h5-5---|
A |------------------------|
E |------------------------|

E |------------------------|
B |------------------------|
G |------------------------|
D |5h7p5/4h5-5p0-----------|
A |--------------3---------|
E |----------------3-------|

Also in the outro you can hear some strumming on these G & C chords
E |---------8--------------|
B |-12------8--------------|
G |-12------9--------------|
D |-12---------------------|
A |------------------------|
E |------------------------|

there's a few minor things in the verses i left out which can be done playing the chords up 
higher on the fretboard so whatever, enjoy.
