This is my first guitar tab - I noticed there wasn't one 
around for this song. I don't think I have the whole thing 
exactly right - in the second verse, I think the progression 
changes for a while, and then it goes back to the original. 
I don't know the second progression though - a youtube video 
by user Simon Smith (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9Brxw48oP0)
has some suggestions, but I couldn't get his version to work with 
the lyrics. So please, if you can correct this - go ahead! 
In the meantime, this is the version I use, and it actually works for the whole song. 

P.S. There's a great cover of this song by this guy: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mv3yCHdI-hk
The Little Unsaid - he uses a capo on the 5th fret and does a lot of quick 
finger picking, so I'm not exactly sure how he plays it, but it's great if
you are looking for an acoustic rendition. 


Standard Tuning

Intro: Gm F Gm F Eb Dm x2

Now, the actual riff that you hear is based on those chords. 
So when you see Gm, this is the riff that is being played:

Gm:
e--------------------------------
b---------------11-11--10--------
g-------------------------12-----
d--------------------------------
a--10---10-10-10-----------------
E--------------------------------

Then you switch to F:
e--------------------------------
b-------------10-10--8-----------
g----------------------10--------
d--------------------------------
a--8--8-8-8----------------------
E--------------------------------

Eb goes like this:
e--------------------------------
b-------------8-8--6-------------
g--------------------8-----------
d--------------------------------
a--6--6-6-6----------------------
E--------------------------------

And then you end with Dm:
e--------------------------------
b-------------6-6--5-------------
g--------------------7-----------
d--------------------------------
a--5--5-5-5----------------------
E--------------------------------


Verse 1:
Gm              F             
Look out of the window
Gm                 F             
What's passing you by
Eb                 Dm
If you really want this…
Gm              F
bad enough.
Gm               F             
You're young and good-looking
Eb              Dm
The keys to the kingdom
Gm     F     Gm     F

Chorus:     
        Eb       Dm       Gm
Soon or laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaater
        F         Gm
Soon or laaaaaaaaater
        F         Eb
Soon or laaaaaaaaater
      Dm             Gm
And before your very eyes
      F              Gm
And before your very eyes
      F              Eb          Dm
And before your very eyes

(here's where the chord progression changes, but I don't know how, I think this works too:

Verse 2 (version 1):
Gm                F
Old soul on young shoulders
Gm                       F
How you'll look when you're older
Eb            Dm
Time's fickle card game
Gm                       F
With you and I
Gm                    F
You have to take your chances
Eb           Dm
The book of forgiveness
Gm     F     Gm     F       

Chorus:     
        Eb       Dm       Gm
Soon or laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaater
        F         Gm
Soon or laaaaaaaaater
        F         Eb
Soon or laaaaaaaaater
      Dm             Gm
And before your very eyes
      F              Gm
And before your very eyes
      F              Eb          Dm
And before your very eyes                  (x2)




OK, so here's the way Verse 2 could be:

Verse 2 (version 2):
Eb                Dm
Old soul on young shoulders
Eb                          Dm
How you'll look when you're older
Cm            Dm
Time's fickle card game
Cm                       
With you and I
Eb                    Dm
You have to take your chances
Eb           Dm
The book of forgiveness
Cm     Dm     Cm     Bbmaj
