I tabbed this out on a normal acoustic using standard tuning (but it also sounds great 
down 1/2 step)  The other tabs for this song were kinda weird sounding.  This is pretty 
accurate


[Intro]

e|-0h2-2-2-0---3------------------------------|
B|-3---3-3-3---3------------------------------|
G|-2---2-2-2---5-----0-----0------------------|
D|---------0-0-----2-----0-------0-----0-----0|
A|---------0-0---3-----2-------2-----0-------0|
E|---------0-0---------------5-----5-----5p4-0|


[Verse]

e|-0h2-2-2-0---0---0-0-3----------------------------------|
B|-3---3-3-3---3---3-3-3----------------------------------|
G|-2---2-2-2---0---0-0-0---------0-----0------------------|
D|-0-------0-0-2---2-2-2-------2-----0-------0-----0-----0|
A|-0-------0-0-3---3-3-3-0-2-3-----2-------4-----0-------0|
E|-0-------0-0---------------------------5-----5-----5p4-0|

 Yeah          hey           yeah         want to travel south this year
  I            wo-           -ont         won't prevent safe passage here


This part sounds kinda wierd acoustically, but this is the closest I could come
e|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|
G|-0h3p0-------------------|
D|-------0h3p0-------------|
A|-------------0h3p0-------|
E|-------------------3p0-3b|

  Why                    you act crazy
  Not                    an act maybe
  So                     close a lady
  Shif-                  -ty eyes shady

After this, you repeat the intro , then you do the next verse, identical to the first, 
but the first part is done only once


Hey, yeah tears that soak a careless heart


Then the second part of the verse is done to these lyrics

Why you act frightened 
I am enlightened
Your weakness builds me
So someday you'll see



Then the big powerful sounding chorus.  Play it this way. but listen to the song for the 
rhythm



[Chorus]

e|-2-2-2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2-2-3-3-3-3-3-2---2-2-2-2-2-------------2|
B|-3-3-3-3-3-3---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---3-3-3-3-3-3---3-3-3-5-3|
G|-2-2-2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2-2-3---3-3-3-5-2|
D|-0-0-0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0-0-3---3-3-3-5-0|
A|-------------------------------------------------1---1-1-1-3-0|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------0|
  I                        stay              away
