So that's what's played in the intro and the verses, and overtop of the chords in 
the chorus. I also wrote in the chords for the verses if you don't want to deal 
with the different parts (which are played at the same time)/multiple guitars.

[Verse 1]

G   Em         G     Cadd9 G      Em      G      Cadd9
 I choked back tears today, cuz I can't begin to say
G    Em          D/F#       Cadd9 G     Em       D/F#     Cadd9
 how much you've shaped this boy, these last ten years or more.
G    Em           G      Cadd9 G   Em       G       Cadd9       
 My friends we've seen it all, triumphs to drunken falls,
G        Em        D/F#   Cadd9 G        Em         D/F#     Cadd9
 and our bones are broken still, but our hearts are joined until...

 G                          Cadd9
 Time slips its tired hand, into our tired hands.
 G                          Cadd9
 We've years till that day, I've so much more to say....

[Chorus]
              G            Em              D/F#  Cadd9
 You give the strength to me, a strength I never had.
         G           Em             D/F#    Cadd9
 I was a mess you see, I'd lost the plot so bad.
             G         Em             D/F#  Cadd9
 You drag me up and out, out of the darkest place.
                G         Em            D/F#      Cadd9
 There's not a single doubt, when I can see your faces...

[Verse 2]

G    Em           G      Cadd9 G       Em       G       Cadd9
 my friends we've seen it all, when it made no sense at all.
G    Em       D/F#    Cadd9 G              Em            D/F#  Cadd9
 You dared to light my path, and found the beauty in the aftermath.

 G                   Cadd9
 let me hold you up, like you held me up.
 G                                 Cadd9
 Its too long to never say this, you must know i've always thought...

[Chorus]
              
             G            Em              D/F#  Cadd9
 You give the strength to me, a strength I never had.
         G           Em             D/F#    Cadd9
 I was a mess you see, I'd lost the plot so bad.
             G         Em             D/F#  Cadd9
 You drag me up and out, out of the darkest place.
                G         Em            D/F#      Cadd9
 There's not a single doubt, when I can see your faces...

             G            Em              D/F#  Cadd9
 You give the strength to me, a strength I never had.
         G           Em             D/F#    Cadd9
 I was a mess you see, I'd lost the plot so bad.
             G         Em             D/F#  Cadd9
 You drag me up and out, out of the darkest place.
                G         Em            D/F#      Cadd9    G(let it ring)
 There's not a single doubt, when I can see your faces.

As far as I can tell this is flawless, I wish I could vote it up higher so that this one would be the first result; I'm sure people would appreciate that. But thank you so much for putting this up.

Just 2 little things:
I think the verse sounds better when you play the same as during the chorus, meaning D/F# instead of the second G.
So basically G Em D/F# Cadd9 for the whole verse

and for the pre-chorus I would play D instead of G.

Apart from that, amazing tab, thanks for putting it up! It sounds really nice!
