Normally for two guitars, but it's perfectly playable on one.
There's a lot of improvisation in this song, but these are the basics:

Intro & verses:
      Fmaj7       C            Em7
e[-------------0-------------------------]
B[----------1---------------1------------]
G[--------2---------------0------0---0---]  (2x)
D[------3-----------3---2----------0-----]
A[----------------2---3--------2---------]
E[----1----------------------------------]

Play something like this at the end of each sentence:
      Fmaj7       C            Em7      Am         E7
e[-------------0----------------------------------0-----------0---]
B[----------1---------------1------------------1-----------3------]
G[--------2---------------0------0---0-------2-----------1--------]
D[------3-----------3---2----------0-------2-----------2----------]
A[----------------2---3--------2--------0-------------------------]
E[----1----------------------------------------------0------------]

Chorus: a lot of variations on the Fmaj7 and G chords - here are two examples:
     Fmaj7            G                      Fmaj7        G
e[------------------------------------]       e[--------------------------------]
B[---------1----------------3---------]       B[---------1------------3-----0---]
G[-------2-----2---2------0-----0-----]       G[-------2---2--------0---0-2-----]
D[-----3---------3------0-----0---0---]       D[-----3------------0-------------]
A[------------------------------------]       A[--------------------------------]
E[---1----------------3---------------]       E[---1------------3---------------]

End of the first chorus:
     Fmaj7        G          C
e[--------------------------------------1-0------]
B[---------1-----------(3)-------1-----------1---]
G[-------2---2--------0--------0-------------0---]
D[-----3------------0--------2---------------2---]
A[-----------------------------------------------]
E[---1------------3------------------------------]

---> 2nd verse
---> 2nd chorus, which ends like this:

     Fmaj7        G          C        A7
e[------------0-----------------------------3-0--]
B[---------1------------3--------1--------2-2----]
G[-------2------------0--------0--------2---2----]
D[-----3------------0--------2-------------------]
A[------------------------------------0----------]
E[---1------------3------------------------------]

Then there's an interlude (I’m tired of fighting) – but it just uses the same
chords as the chorus. It ends like this:

     Fmaj7        G        C
e[------------0--------------------1-0-------0------0----]
B[---------1------------3------3-1-----3-2h3---1---3--1--]
G[-------2------------0----------------------------------]
D[-----3------------0--------2---------------------------]
A[-------------------------3-----------------------------]
E[---1------------3--------------------------------------]


Bridge:
    A            F             C           Cadd9
e[-----------0------------0-------------0--------0-------]
B[--------2------------1-------------1-------------3-----]
G[------2------------2-------------0-----------0---------]
D[----2------------3-------------2-----------2-----------]
A[--0--------------------------3-----------3-------------]
E[---------------1---------------------------------------]

    A            F             C
e[-----------0------------0------------0------------------]
B[--------2------------1-------------1------1-------------]
G[------2------------2-------------0---------------0------]
D[----2------------3-------------2---------------------0--]
A[--0--------------------------3----------3----3-2---2----]
E[---------------1----------------------------------------]

Then A/F/C again, and end with:

    F            F             C
e[-----------0------------0------------0--------0---------]
B[--------1------------1-------------1------------1-------]
G[------2------------2-------------0----------0-----------]
D[----3------------3-------------2----------2-------------]
A[-----------------------------3----------3---------------]
E[--1------------1----------------------------------------]

Then the 3rd chorus (about the same as the 2nd) and again the interlude
with the chorus chords. It ends like this:

     Fmaj7        G        C
e[---------0----------------------------------------------------]
B[------------1---------3--------1--3h5--1---[---Random---]--1--]
G[-------2------------0--------0-------------[--fingering-]--0--]
D[-----3------------0--------2---------------[----on-C----]--2--]
A[-------------------------3---------------------------------3--]
E[---1------------3---------------------------------------------]
