Tanx for the great tab!

Chorus is more like this:
A
But it's alright, it's okay,

I got the time, but the time don't pay.
E
It's alright, it's okay,

I got the time, but the time don't pay.
A
It's alright, it's okay,

I got the time, but the time don't pay.
E D
It's alright, it's okay.

The A and E chords are octaves, so mute the middle string.

* Solo is Em pentatonic at the 12th fret, so some youtube video's.
* I wonder what the guitarist is doing with his middle finger on and off during the verses. Is he doing the A string from 7th to 5th fret along with the open E string?

Yeah I was right about the verse. Try this:

A|-5-5-7-5-5-7-5-5-7- etc
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-

begin of the solo: I am pretty sure the solo goes like this:

Solo
(2:08) (2:11)
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------12~---------------------------------------|
|------------(12)-----------12~-----------------------12--------------|
|-12-14-14-14-12--x-x-14-14-----(2x)---12-14-14-14-14----14-12--------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------14-14--|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

(2:15)
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------14br-14-12~---14b-14b-14b-14br-12~---14b-14b-14b-14b-14b-14br-12~---|
