I saw Plain White T's perform this song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Tim was using
a capo on the 8th fret and Tom on the 4th.
Gtr. 1 (acoustic): Capo 8 [All guitars are in standard tuning, EADGBE]
Gtr. 2 (acoustic): Capo 4 [All chords are relative to capo]
Gtr. 3 (electric): no capo
ALL Chords in parenthesis are Gtr.2
I think the G/B in the bridge may just be a G and the B is probably played by the bass, but
you can play it either way.

Intro:
Gtr. 1: (Capo 8)(Not the exact number of times he strums each chord, but you can figure it out)

I've watched several different performances of this song and I've made some corrections. 
It should be perfect. If you have any questions or corrections, please message me or comment.

Oh, you're right! Thanks for the correction. I added it to an updated version and submitted it earlier.

Yours is the closest I've seen, especially capo placement. I found an awesome video of Tim disguising himself and "covering" his own song, shows finger placement up close. Please check it out, might be some perfections to make: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOA892sf8hc
