I found this acoustic version on youtube and later on myspace and I loved it.
To me, it is better than the original.

Chorus:

   --I tried to tab this out but if it isn't all too great, notify me for corrections.
   --If I didn't do a good job, here are the chords for it so you can figure out the
patterns.

C, Em, Asus2, G.

   --I also like to alternate between C, Em, Asus2, G and E, D, C, and B, to play along 
Eddie Vedder's voice, like shown below.

   C          Em        Asus2  G   I don't want to take what you can't give.

   E          D         C      B   Guess I'll lie alone, just like before.

Repeat everything twice and you pretty much have the whole song. I have the rest figured 
but I have to wait to put the rest in when I get the time to update.

and the rest of it too
except after you play...
F5
e|-----|
B|-----|
G|-10--|
D|-10--| 16 strums.
A|-8---|
E|-----|

you should play...

F5 The waiting drove me mad.
e|-----|
B|-----|
G|-9---|
D|-9---| 1 strum.
A|-7---|
E|-----|

and then go down to the G chord, sounds better and more complete
but otherwise thanks a bunch for posting!
