          Alright, so this is my first tab on this site, hope I don't screw it up.
The band is The Sun Parade, a folk/rock group from Northampton MA, and this song, Need
You By My Side, is easily their most well-known.
You can listen to most of their music on their website, www.thesunparade.com or
http://thesunparade.bandcamp.com/, or watch the music video for this song at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFmzz9eUHro to get a good idea of it.
Also, I figured out these chords just by listening to the track and watching the band
play, so it might not be 100%, but it's pretty darn close.
And once again, this is my first tab, so please do your best to comment and rate, 
and if you feel like you can improve on it, don't hesitate to message or email.
Anyway, without further ado:
