I would say that I'm 100% sure that this is correct. 50% of it is my own work, while
the other 45% goes to someone I know and about 5% I found on the internet (hope the
person doesn't mind, but I did only used a little bit, most of it was the same as what
I had anyway)
But anyway here it is so enjoy!

Tuning: Drop D

Intro:
-----------------------------------R
-----------------------------------E
---------11----------------11------P till the verse
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-E
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-A
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-T

there is another little guitar part that guitar 2 plays right after the intro going
into the verse but i havn't tabbed it(sorry)

Verse:
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------| it's actually exactly the same as the
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-| intro, but I thought i'd put the verse
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-| down seperatly anyway
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

Then theres like a little fill later half way through the verse when he sings: "Someone
who cares"
------------------------------------|
------------------------------------|
--------11--------------------------|
-9-12-9-11-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|

Then continue playing the verse:
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------|
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-| 
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

-9-12-9----12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|

Bridge:
"Feeling unknown and you're all alone..."
-----------------------------------------|
-7-----7-----10-----15-----12------14----|
-X-----X-----X-------X------X-------X----|
-4-----4-----7------12------9------11----|
-----------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------|

Then after he sings
"I'll make you a believer" theres another little fill that guitar2 plays:
--------|
--------|
--11~~~-| just hold the note for
--------| like 2 seconds.
--------|
--------|

While guitar 1 just goes on playing the main riff (intro/verse):

--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

New verse:
"Take second best,put me to the test"
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------|
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

while guitar 2 plays the little fill:
--------|
--------|
--11~~~-|
--------|

Chorus:
"reach out and touch faith"
--------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------|
-----------------11-------------11----|

-6----5----4-7-4--9--7-4--4-7-4--9--7-|
-6----5----4-7-4-----7-4--4-7-4-----7-|

"your own, personal Jesus.."
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------|
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

during the verse guitar2 plays the little fill again:
--------|
--------|
--11~~~-|
--------|
--------|

"Someone to hear your prayers"
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------|
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

Chorus:
"reach out and touch faith"
--------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------|
-----------------11-------------11----|
-6----5----4-7-4-11--7-4--4-7-4-11--7-|
-6----5----4-7-4--9--7-4--4-7-4--9--7-|

The intro is wrong for 2 reasons:
1)The notes are wrong
2)Tim plays single notes instead of powerchords (you can see that when he plays it live)

The intro goes like:

(riff1)
d------------------
a-----------4------
D--2--5--2-----5--2

It also plays an off beat E every other time, like this:

(Riff 2)
d-------------------
a-----------4-------
D--22--5--2-----5--2

so about 10-11 sec into the song after manson says reach out and touch faith the guitar line goes:

riff 1, riff 2, riff 1, riff 2 etc etc till the guitar line changes, when manson sings: Someone to hear your prayers, someone who cares

sorry if that is confusing lol, but you might find it sounds better
