Upon closer listening, I've discovered the verses and pre-choruses are a little bit more complex than what I originally wrote. They go like this:

e|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-8h10-10-8h10-10-8h10--[x4]---5h6-6-5h6-6-5h6--[x4]----|
D|-8h10-10-8h10-10-8h10---------5h6-6-5h6-6-5h6----------|

This is how I've been playing it. Pretty close to what was already posted here.

Intro/Chorus
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------16---------------------16-----------------------------------|
G|----15-17-------15-17------15-17-------15-17--------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-15---------------------15--------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|
e|----------15------------------16--------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------16-13-----------------------------|
G|----13-15----15-13------13-15-----------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-11------------------11-----------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

The hammer-ons may very well be there but I don't feel like playing them brought me any closer to sounding like the recording.

Verse:
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------8------------------------8----------------------------|
D|-10p8-10p8-10p8----8-10---10p8-10p8-10p8----8-10----------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------11--------------------------|
G|----------------12---------------------------8------------------------|
D|-10p8-10p8-10p8----10-8----10p8-10p8-10p8------10---------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
