I've been working on it lately, it's far from being perfect not too far, i hope.
I'd like to receive some feedback/corrections.

Notes: some of you will surely prefer to shift the whole sequence by a tone
       or two.

       the chords are based on very simple tabs found for the song's riffs,
       which i don't post now.

The Chords:

Amaj7   012100
E       001220
F#      22344X or 223442 (full barre')
Nochord 11344X or 113441
F#maj7  12344X or 123441
B       2444XX or 244422
C#      4666XX or 466644
A#      66788X or 667886

Notes: It's easiest to play with capo on fret #1, but then the Amaj7-E sequence
       is disabled (either find new fingerings for them or let them be shifted
       to their corresponding #s [which is weaker])
       The full barre' versions of the chords are preferable, imo.

       Full lyrics available at either ftp.uwp.edu or ftp.maths.tcd.ie

There are two main chord riffs:

#1 (fast)

F#   F#    Nochord  F#maj7  F# F# Nochord F#maj7
I've heard them     all,    no mercy      shown

B  B   B     B  B   B  B  C#   A#
Heaven knows it has to be this time


(which is also applicable to the NO intro, that is play it before the 1st verse,
 figuring the rhythm for yourselves)

Amaj7       E
Watching Forever

(i think it's better to play notes while singing this, the chords suit the intro

That's as far as i got now. Again, i'd love to get feedback on it, as i fear
 there is room for corrections.

P.S. oh, almost forgot... A BONUS TRACK!!!

     By complete coincidence, i found yesterday the rhythm chords for "Walked in
     Line" - very simple progression-regression (with standard barre' chords):

     F G A G F

     Again, figure out the rhythm alone (long durations on the Fs and As, very
      short on the G)

     Have fun!

I know the efforts and appreciate them, but I am quite sure that this song is in C and F all the time, instead of F# and B.

Aye.. I've just been listening the version on Substance, and I think C F, maybe some G, D and E in there too. I'm not able to tab the whole song. But, if you alterately pick a F5 and C5 power chord, you'll have one of the main riffs, I think.

Yep, I've just been listening to the version on Substance, and I think there the chords are mostly C and F, with some G, A and E.

I think one of the main riffs is just alternately picking the two notes in F5 and C5 power chords (i.e. F and C, then C and G)...?

Thanks anyhow!
