 I wasn't really satisfied by this song tabs available in the UG, none of them doesn't 
a correct chorus part. They're not even similar. Maybe some of you will not agree with me,
here is my version of the song:

Intro (with "wah" effects)

E|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|----------------------------| Repeat several times
D|--------7-7-----------7--7--|
A|--0--0---------0--0---------|
E|----------------------------|

In the studio version you can hear that there are two guitars played in the song.
At the beginning the second guitar plays palm muted A and before bass and drums enters,A chord.
It looks like this:

E|------------|-----------|------------|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
B|------------|-----------|------------|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
G|------------|-----------|------------|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|
D|------------|-----------|------------|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
A|------------|-----------|------------|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
